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"

Connecting Max MSP to UE4

As part of a project I need variables in UE4 to control parameters in MAX MSP and then for Max to play these sounds back in game. I've been trying to get OSC working between them but I can get it working right. Does anyone have any advice as to how I might succeed in connecting them.

Product Version: UE 4.8

Hi Joem1991,

I just wanted to check in and see if you had any luck with getting this working. This process is not something that is supported by the Engine "out of the box." If you have managed to get it working, it might be worthwhile to put your changes into a plugin that you can offer in the coming Plugins section of the Marketplace.

If you are still having trouble with this, I can check with our sound engineer when he gets back from the holiday break to see if he has any ideas that might help.

Hi Joem1991,

We have not heard back from you for a few days, so I will be marking this post as resolved for internal tracking purposes. If you still need any help with this, please feel free to add a comment and re-open the post at any time.

Hi Tim,

My bad, yes I did get it working in the end it turns out that I hadn't put a semi-colon after the IP address in the OSC plugin so I wasn't receiving signals.

if anyone is interested in how it worked out you can see the game and Max in action here

The recording isn't great quality mind but you get the gist of it

Hello! This has indeed been a while ago already, but I was wondering if you could explain a little bit how you got it to work? Beginner here (to both Max and UE4), but would love to integrate Max into a project that I've been working on.
