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"

What exactly is 'Game User Settings'?


I have designed my game UI and have used a savegame blueprint to save all my settings to, which then executes console commands on startup to initiate the saved graphics settings. Then by mistake I came across a blueprint node called 'Get Game User Settings', which then contained what looked like easy to use quality and window settings that I could have used all this time supposedly.

My question is, is this whole Game User Settings system actually designed for user settings, where it will automatically save things like the selected resolution if I run a node 'Set Screen Resolution', so that it could easily be loaded next runtime? I would feel really stupid if this is the method I was supposed to be using the entire time xD

Thanks in advance!

It is indeed class that stores and manage user settings (in C++ you can actully easily turn any class to config storing object and save and load config with just by calling two functions), once you set you need to call apply settings:


And no worries, this APIs was not exposed to blueprints day one so some old tutorials and documentions used console commands
