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"

How do I launch a server?

I've done some work and I want to try my game outside of the editor. But I'm not sure how this works. I've seen this wiki page; https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Networking/Replication#Creating_a_server and I've tried running the command after I launch the game, but nothing happens.

Like I package out in development mode, open the game and type in " ?listen -game" is that the wrong way to do so?

Where and when should I run it and is the formatting I've given wrong?

Normaly you would create a button or something that calls "open YOURLEVELNAME?listen" in the console.

But if you want to create a server when starting the game, you would need to add "YOURMAPNAME?listen -game" to your .exe command.

If you do this over the CMD, you would search for your .exe game file and do something like "MyGame.exe MyMap?listen -game" and hit enter.

Or you add "MyMap?listen -game" in the settings of the exe (rightclick etc).

I have never done this, but i assume this is the way to do it.
