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"

Player name not showing in menu

Hey guys, I've been completely stumped by an issue I'm having following along the Blueprint Multiplayer video posted by Unreal. I've rewatched it, and gone through the released project to fix this problem and can't find the solution.

The problem I'm having is there's a portion in the video in which you can set up your player profile with an avatar picture, and your name. It's then supposed to save, and be able to be shown in the lobby when you play a LAN or Online game. My avatar nor is my name being displayed within the lobby menu after it's saved. alt text

This is the event construct within my Connected Player widget alt text

Actually I figured this out just now on my own. If anyone else is following that tutorial and is running into the same issue try this as a solution.

If you're too this point in the tutorial we should have two variables made in two different blueprints. Both of them named Player Settings Save.

1: One of the variables should be in our LobbyPC blueprint, and the other in OptionsMenu Widget. 2: Make sure the default values are exactly the same. In this case the reason I was having this problem is because my default value in my OptionsMenu widget blueprint read as follows "PlayersSettingSave". In my LobbyPC blueprint that variables default value was "PlayerSettingSave". That simple of a mistake by making one plural and the other singular is what gave me this headache for several days now.

Thanks all the same for anyone who would have helped out!

Iwintb you are a legend.

Make sure you delete any and all save files you have (Documents\Unreal Projects\"ProjectName"\Saved\SaveGames) after changing the value/name of you variables otherwise it will not load your save into the same file

I have done this exact tutorial and im stuck at the names. I have tripple checked that it says "PlayerSettingSave" in both areas as default and still nothing is showing up. Server Name is there, but not player names and not player cards either.

I'm a bit lost to go from here.
