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"

Cross platform networking using a UE4 dedicated server

I am looking into making a cross platform dungeon crawler (PC, Android, iOS) and I am uncertain as to how the dedicated server works in terms of level management. I would like to be able to load a higher quality version of a map on PC and a lower quality version on mobile but it seems like the dedicated server would force the client to load whatever version of the map is built into the server.

  1. If I were to use two maps with the same name (differentiate via folders in the project and cook the specific maps for the platform) would the dedicated server be able to work properly?

  2. Is it possible to use the same blank starting map and stream in the version of the map I need on the client if the above isn't feasible?

Product Version: UE 4.14
