Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Getting max amount of players in a session, and getting the host of the session/game

After creating a session using the Create Session node in a blueprint, and switching to a new map as listen server alt text

I want to get the maximum amount of players that this session can hold. I guess I can do that by storing the amount of players in a Game Instance, or something like that. I'm wondering if there's a node to access the current session and get its data, because its odd that I can create a session but not access its variables.

In addition, I want to find the controller that is the host of the current session, and I can maybe patch something to do so, but isn't there maybe a node that does that?

Thank You.

This feature would be nice!

It's indeed weird you can't get data from current session with a node.

This is something you can do via c++, you can setup a function that is blueprintcallable and get the session properties with:

     IOnlineSessionPtr Sessions = IOnlineSubsystem::Get()->GetSessionInterface();
     FOnlineSessionSettings* CurrentSettings = Sessions->GetSessionSettings(GameSessionName);
     int32 MaxConections = CurrentSettings->NumPublicConnections;
