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 to connect to another player online with MultiplayerShootout

This is not easy. My friend and I have tried to get EVERY networked Unreal example to work to no avail (Shooter game and MultiplayerShootout).

How is this done?

We're both behind routers but he was able to open port 777 (and do the port forwarding) and ping me. I couldn't ping him but I could ping google.com.

We've tried everything from packaging the projects and running a shortcut that we've appended " [his ip]:7777 -game" to the end of (I believe he did -server on his)

To just running the game in the editor opening the console and typing:

(on his computer) open Level_01?listen
(on mine) open [his ip]

Nothing works.

Please give me an example of how this is done so I can understand how to connect to a networked game in Unreal.

Thanks in advance.
