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"

Android Multiplayer over LAN/Wifi

Hi everyone,

I has used Wes Bunn's multiplayer tutorial for setting up a multiplayer game using LAN and Steam which was fantastic.

What I want to know is - Is it possible to set up a project on Android where two phones (for example) can connect on a LAN. I an not concerned at this stage about internet connection and using servers. Can one phone 'host' a session and another phone connect using wifi.

I saw a post that adapted Wes' code by changing the Steam reference to Null but on 4.14 it will not even build without an error.

I don't want to waste time if this is not possible through UE4.

If it is possible is anyone able to offer any help on how to do it please......

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.14

I read somewhere that Android multiplayer especially via blueprints is limited until some version later than 4.14.

Try migrating your project to at least 4.17.2 since that's the one I'm using and I've been able to get android to be both a server and a client.
