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"

How Do I Increase Weapon Fire Sound Distance?

I am looking at the Shooter Game package from Epic Games as a "Step 1" learning process.

I went into game against a bot and the sounds of the bullets hitting the ground was way louder than the actual firing of the gun. Through the blueprints I figured out how to reduce the volume of the impact but then it lead to another issue I had personally, the rifle firing is quiet. You can't really hear the rifle being shot at you from a distance. How would I be able to increase the distance in which the gun can be heard?

Like for example if I wish to add a sniper rifle to the project that I want someone to hear accross the map?

Product Version: UE 4.11
