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"

Hello, troubled one

The first thing that is usually needed for multipalyer is a dedicated server. This server usually has some game rules (server Game Mode) for example match duration, number of players, list of maps that being used etc. Unreal Engine 4 is designed with networking in mind, thus achieving basic networking functionality (building dedicated server, in this case) is quite easy.

If you like to learn more about dedicated server in Unreal Engine 4, please go here: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Dedicated_Server_Guide_(Windows_%26_Linux) https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Standalone_Dedicated_Server

Dedicated server can be launched on any computer that you want (of course with respect to technical requirements). Clients can connect to it via appropriate IP address and port. As for the countries, this question is usually actual when there are many users, so you may want to create a separate server, that will transfer players to appropriate dedicated server depending on, for example, their geographical location.

Hope this helped!

Have a great day!
