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"

Dedicated server help

Hello, I have been working on my Multiplayer game project for a couple of months and now I want to create a lobby and start game menu for it. However I ran into a problem. I want to create my game similar to CS:GO, LoL or Dota2, but with 4 teams. Could someone link me to a tutorial where I could learn how to do it? Instead of hosting the server on other player computer, I want to make so that, when minimum player joined requirement is met in the lobby, all the players are sent to a Dedicated server which is hosted online.

Thanks in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.9

Your lobby is usually a dedicated server as well but how you do that is a core system of those games.

There are tutorials about how to create a dedicated server with Unreal and there are also tutorials on how to create a lobby. How exactly you implement it and have it work is a huge topic with certainly hours of debugging and work.

Here is how to create a dedicated server in Unreal Engine: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Dedicated_Server_Guide_(Windows_%26_Linux)

And here a basic lobby system: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Blueprint_Basic_Multiplayer_HUD

Beyond that it really is up to you. The question is too big for a better answer on my part. At least for me.
