    Ow. The description is a bit vague.
    If the animation is not synced, you have two options:
    a) Use the position updates to "calculate and apply" an animation (find out how fast the remote player moves and then fade in a animation that fits the speed).
    b) On the owner's machine, you most likely calculate a animation already, so try to make that into a single state variable and send that.

    We did the latter in the Marco Polo Tutorial:
