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"

Multiplayer or networking in HTML5/WebGL build?

How would adding multiplayer or networking functionality to HTML5 games work? How does a client connect to a server or other client in HTML5?

Thank you.

Networking on HTML5 is currently not functional and is very much on cards. Not sure what is the timeline - but its an important feature which is missing right now.

Assumption: You are planning to work in c++.

I'm not sure what tools are built into the unreal engine source for networking but sockets work in c++ without concern for the platform being used to display the project. Unless I'm misunderstanding the question then the fact you are using HTML5 should be irrelevant to the networking portion of the game.

For an introduction into c/c++ networking in both UDP and TCP I recommend Beej's Guide though the Unreal Engine may have built in stuff to make it so you don't have to work at such a low level.
