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 t set a variable in a widget from a Game mode?

Hi, I want to make a scoreboard widget. For that I need to get all the Player controllers that are in my game, I do this with the Logged in/out events in the game mode blueprint + an array variable. But how I do forward the value of this variable to my Widget?

Is there a better way to get a list of all the controllers?

You should Store Scores in a Player State they are replicated and exist on all clients. You can easily access them from the GameState like this https://gyazo.com/6da544f9f935a51341aba8e3175ea1aa or directly from the Controller (his own State that gets replicated)
