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"

Built-in support for Generic USB Game Controllers?

I have some Generic USB Game Controllers that are detected by Windows 10 Pro and they show up as game controllers in the gamepad setup and they work for game emulation no problems, but I haven't been able to get them working with Unreal Engine using the bindings.

Is there a built-in method for getting Generic USB Game Controllers to work with Unreal Engine?

If there is or isn't, what steps would need to be taken to get them to work with Unreal Engine?

In Windows only XInput contropllers are supported in UE4, but generic USB controllers should work on other platfroms (Linux and OS X). There ways to make generic USB controller to have Xinput dirver and considering lot of games have Xinput only support user should be ready for this so it should not be big issue.
