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"

Character select in during match

I want to show a widget during an online match and allow the player to select one of four classes to respawn with. Would I just be re-possessing the character pawn with the current player controller? Any input is welcome.

Product Version: UE 4.10

Depends on how they differ and how you want to split the classes logically. Do you want to put all 4 classes into a single character blueprint?

Because if it's just the looks (if no game logic depends on it), you might just change the model or material on the character, not even bothering to spawn/repossess anything.

If they have different input styles and abilites, you probably want to have multiple character blueprints. In this case, you would destroy the old Pawn and possess the newly created pawn.

Personally, I would go for the later and introduce a parent pawn, from which they all extend (so common features can be shared easily).
