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"

Could I update things in my app without updating the app

Hello community!!

I am seeking some advice, and any and all answers will be greatly appreciated!!

I am building a mobile game for Android only at the moment, using 4.9 because I'm using gamesparks as my backend for now.

So my question, for example let's say im building a mobile theater game. And the posters in the lobby will contain a picture. Maybe have the picture posted to a 3d widget and set on the wall. Now let's say i want to change that picture every 15 days. Is there a way around to updating that without having the customer update the app every 15 days. Does gamesparks or unreal have a feature to where i can update certain objects without impacting the client side customer but only update the picture? I've tried researching on this idea but came across nothing yet and if someone could shine some light into the right direction if there is a solution that'd be great!

Product Version: UE 4.9

Why not try using the blueprint node: "Download Image" and just updating the image on that url every 15 days? Otherwise you would need to use a plugin like "VaRest" that can read a json from your server containing all the urls
