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"

Skip Assigning Gamepad to Player 1 in Blueprints.

Hey there!

I saw 4.13 has this "Skip Assigning Gamepad to Player 1" option on Project Settings, but there seems to be no way to access this variable from Blueprints, or is it?

Can this option be toggled on/off in real time during gameplay? (so it can be an option for the players in a game menu and not something the game is set to forever)


Product Version: UE 4.13

Hello? This is still important, we're going to get 4.15 soon, could this be exposed to blueprints please?

Well, after 2 years and learning C++ in between I created my own Blueprint node for this.

1st you need to add "EngineSettings" to your Build.cs file, otherwise you can't access UGameMapSettings

 PublicDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Core", "CoreUObject", "Engine", "InputCore", "EngineSettings" });

Then you can create this function anywhere really. I placed in on a function library for convenience.

.h declaration

 // Sets "bOffsetPlayerGamepadIds" on UGameMapSettings
 UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Gamepad")
 static void OffsetGamepadID(bool Offset); // static because it's on a library

.cpp implementation

 #include "EngineSettings/Classes/GameMapsSettings.h"


 void UMyLibrary::OffsetGamepadID(bool Offset)
     UGameMapsSettings* Settings = const_cast<UGameMapsSettings*>(GetDefault<UGameMapsSettings>());
     if (Settings == nullptr) { return;  }  // just in case
     Settings->bOffsetPlayerGamepadIds = Offset;

And that's pretty much it. Here it is for testing. And it works :)

You could create this inside your game mode or player controller if you want.

Hello Evilgmae, awesome work, but I didn't get it, I need help with those c++ codes, could you upload a project with this implementation? You could put that on marketplace, would be great, a lot of people have this issue. Thanks

Hey guys,

Due to the demand I have entered a feature request for this issue here: https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-43841

Keep in mind this doesn't mean that the feature will be implemented just that we have heard many requests and have a ticket tracking it. You can vote on the feature to show community interest however, this will not guarantee that it will be implemented. It is just a metric we use to see what interests the community.

I, too am having this issue. The link you have for the issue doesn't seem to work. Did they delete the feature request?

avatar image Enfilaid Sep 23 '18 at 09:41 PM

I really need this as well. Don't know why it wasn't implemented like this. I mean setting that up in project settings is fine but not making this available in Blueprints doesn't make much sense.

The link for the ticket is not found. Could you please give us an update on this issue.

Thanks a lot, David

I'm currently trying to figure out where it is in C++
