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 to make a game that will be hosted on a external dedicated server?

Hi guys, I really need to understand how make a online game that will be hosted in a external dedicated server (like OVH servers), and I dont know if this guide https://www.unrealengine.com/blog/blueprint-networking-tutorials is talking about that online type game like gtaV where all the world can join(so not lan conecction), or that guide is talking about a lan connection.

And it is possible using blueprints?

Sorry for my bad english guys, I hope you can understand!

Thank you. ;)

Hey Daxo_32,

Here is how to setup a dedicated server:


Here are two projects that use multiplayer, one in C++, one in Blueprint:
