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"

Hi Ricardo,

You can run a dedicated server with UE4 that is useful for smaller scale games such as a first-person shooter as seen in the Shooter Game example content. To run an MMO you would generally need a server farm to handle that much traffic.

Here is some of our documentation on Networking and Multiplayer.

MMO's have been created using our last engine, UE3, a good place to start would be with Tera. Feel free to take a look at the link below for our showcase on Tera.

I hope it helps.

Thanks, TJ
