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"

Data Tables and Adding new rows via Blueprint

Essentially What i'm trying to do is Get datatable row info on "SavedLevelData" Like saves your level, exp, steam id, name) ![alt text

and i can't figure out how to make new rows, I want to make a new row with that playerid as the name (other stats are default and don't need to be added other then display name

Also should I just put this on the controller so when the controller/character joins it will automatically attempt to create the players data? if i were to make this a function and put it on eventbeginplay?

I think a better way to phrase it, is i want to insert the characters info into the table.

Product Version: UE 4.10

Datatables cannot be modified. But you can use a simple array of the structure you would use for the datatable, and use the standard save system (save game slot). Should it be enough for your needs?

No, only from what i get is the save game slot, is the same as a local save of your game and mine i'd like mysql but i can't figure it out since i only do some blueprinting and not c++ (atleast the part with integrating it into the game. Game would be multiplayer with a dedicated server.

It seems that if you want to make a connection with a MySQL database, you will have to make your own plugin in C++ :/ But I don't see how you relate the UE datables and MySQL databases. They are very different things. You can see the UE datatable as a bank of data to drive values of your gameplay (for example, a loot table).

Yea, I thought they were practically small in engine databases where i could actually use them as a local mysql database. .. well local for the server.
