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"

Is it legal to use UT4's code as reference?

I'm planning on making an FPS game, and I want to reference the code from a successful product to see how the pros do it. I know that UT's code can't be copied and used for commercial purposes, but what about reference for your own code? Is that okay?

Note: Product version is not selected because I'm using a slightly modified version of UE4 that allows for Toon shading.

Basically how to set up particular bits of code. Particularly, Weapons and how Switching is handled.

You can be influenced by UT code, but you can't copy it
