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 should I make a server

This is more of a general question but I'm a little confused how servers should be made to make a good multiplayer experience.

I've seen videos on how to make servers and stuff but I'm a little confused on making a server for public people to join. Would it be useful to buy a real server machine for around $700 dollars or is that something you don't need to do. And even if you don't at all need a server is there anyway it would help the experience for the players joining servers? And If I do need a server what kind of server should I buy and how would I lead the players over to the server once they join.

Thank you.

Hi,

it depends on the requirements of your game. If you have a game with a lot of players and a lot of information that must be exchanged between them, a dedicated server with a good internet connection might be needed to ensure a good player experience. However, if your game does not have such requirements, you (or any other player) can host the game from your own PC while playing it.

There are Blueprint nodes, you can use to create, find and join servers: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Blueprints/UserGuide/OnlineNodes/

This series of video tutorials, shows how you can make a multiplayer system (for hosting and joining games as well as a lobby) with blueprints: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZlv_N0_O1gYqSlbGQVKsRg6fpxWndZqZ
