and

These, even at the code level, are identical (minus a new line or two). It is confusing knowing which to use.

Perhaps remove the "Start Server", as "Network Initialize Server" seems to more closely match the naming convention of the rest of the Networking Actions.

Hi,

 Yes, StartServer is the one to use, The other one was from the early development.

Do you have this action in your project or is it just something you spotted on the online help?

Bye,

Hi,

 Ok, I have removed the "network Initialize Server" one, because the samples do use the "start server",

So the next update should not have this redundant action in its asset anymore. As for existing installs, simply locate that script ( using the search, it's very quick), and delete it if you were not using it already, else you can keep using it, but you might run into issues if the "start server" gets some new features or else. So in case you were already using "network initialize server", I suggest you remove it from your State and use "start server" instead..

 Sorry for the mess... it went unnoticed, thanks for spotting this :)

 Bye,

 Jean
