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"

How would I play a game within a game?

I'm an environment artist and don't know where to place this question, so please move it to the correct location if need be....

Recently Shadow Demon Ent went public with our first game with an alpha demo at Gameacon in and the one critique we got that was unanimous was the ability to let players play the arcade cabinet. I think it's a great idea and should be an option if it isn't incredibly difficult. How would one go about pulling this off? I did find the mini-game BP wiki page. I'm not too sure if this applies as well or if more would come into play.

You would just re-create the mechanics of the game in your game... there's nothing else that you specifically need to do. You wouldn't actually run a different executable.

You may want to load a new level when playing the minigame, so that you can have a different player controller and game mode from your main game.

Okay. After I posted this, I thought about all the minigames that exist in just about every game and realized it's probably pretty easy to set up. Just gotta figure it out and work out the kinks.
