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 do I get more than one controller to work for UI

I am by no means an actual programmer. I understand the logic and the structure of programming, just not what stuff does. I have managed to create a local multiplayer game and a UI system that runs before gameplay (a menu screen). I ran into the problem of character selection for multiple users.

What I want is one screen that can handle the inputs of up to 4 players using gamepads. I have the screen set up to handle the first players inputs with a XBONE controller, but I can't find a way to get the other players cursors to show up on screen or do anything.

If needed I can post screenshots of my Game Instance that is running all of my functions.

Please get back to me.

I would save the IMG UI widget as a variable in either player 1 or in the game mode. From there, the other player controllers can grab that variable and use it as reference when sending UI commands.
