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 local 2 player game?

Hello all.

I have been pondering upon this thing for days and i can't make anything work.

Can someone tell me how and why his idea works? I would love to study it.

Pictures would also be a great help!

Found the answer.

It turns out this was the issue. Gamepad 1 == Keyboard 1 and it's undocumented.

The keyboard, mouse and the first gamepad you plug in will always be player 1.

You need 2 gamepads for 2 players, 3 pads for 3 players, etc.

Hello LoN,

If you are looking for local multiplayer (split screen) you could use the create player node. I have provided a link below to the blueprint API. I hope that this information helps.

Make it a great day
