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"

Real-Time Multiplayer on an IOS device

Hello There, I am hoping to create a game for IOS with local multiplayer (or possibly over the internet) that is in real time.

First thing is first, I have general experience with Unreal Engine 4. We have worked on it in school, I use Bluprint at home as well to just muck around. I do not know C++.

I was wondering how I would go about setting up peer to peer multiplayer or Listen hosted multiplayer. My aim would be to allow 2-4 players to connect and play a game. The game I have in mind would be a 2d platformer style game.

What would be the best way to do this? Would it be possible to use GameCenter at all?

If not, what would any alternatives be?

Thanks a lot in advance

Product Version: UE 4.9

I will tell you that is is possible. Much like how Crossy road can have real-time multiplayer with one iPhone and one Apple TV 4. But for QoS I would advise not running a listen server, and instead use dedicated servers unless you port this project to 4.11 and use an ATV 4 as a listen server. I also I don't know if Game Center has a match making feature. So LAN play is the best choice.
