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"

Can't find session in LAN

So, what is the right way to use the LAN feature.

I have [OnlineSubsystem] DefaultPlatformService=Null in my default engine.ini and PrivateDependencyModuleNames.Add("OnlineSubsystemNull"); in my build.cs

Use LAN is checked

I can create a session but can't find it on another computer, it said the sessionlist's size is 0. I can also use "open" to join the game.

is there something I missed?

but everything worked fine on one computer(findsession,joinsession)

Okay, I hate to be that guy, opening up old posts... But that didn't just happen. I can't believe that is the only way to make multiplayer work on a host. Is there any other way to find a LAN game in UE4 without having to disable VBox's Network Adapters in Windows control panel->Network Adapters?

Can confirm this fix for my test project in UE 4.21.1

Yup. Confirmed this is what finally worked for me as well with the MutliplayerShootout tutorial on UE 4.22.
