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 switch the playercontroller in game

Hi there,

I'm currently creating a networked game where I give the ability for the players to have different roles in the game. Similar to Natural Selection 2.

What I'm wondering is, is it possible to switch the PlayerController in game? I'm trying to have a play with it now but I think it might be quicker to get an answer on here.

So is it possible?

It's hard to do that, aspecially in blueprint. You need to think way to move those "roles" to pawns instead of PlayerComponent, or implement all of them in controller and just switch between them, or implement "roles" as components as PlayerController is a actor

"or implement "roles" as components"

What do you mean by this? Can I easily hotswap components?
