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"

Stream PAK files to Android phone from server

Hi everyone, I'm currenntly trying to achieve what is described in the title which is:

  • Get some content into a PAK file (I'm using the starter content provided by the engine).

  • Put the content onto a server

  • Access the server at runtime and download the PAK file onto an Android phone

  • Mount the content at runtime so that the basic level (the one with two chairs and a table) can be played.

I've had a look at some similar questions on the AnswerHub and decided to try to use this custom plugin but I still have a couple of things that are not clear to me:

  • What kind of server do I have to set up ? Do I have to create a full dedicated server (by following this link) even if my goal is not to have online multiplayer capabilities ?

  • I've read these two answers (answer1 and answer2) to understand the code for aquiring and mounting the PAK file. What I don't understand is where exactly the code for aquiring the PAK file needs to be called, is there any specific class that needs to be overwritten or a particular location within the project ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated ;) Thanks in advance.
