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"

Does ?listen from command line work yet? I Cannot load a listen server (But I can load a multiplayer game using 3 Rocket exe's!)

Dear Friends at Epic,

hiii there!

Do listen servers work?

I've tried several variations on ?listen without success in loading a listen server.

I'm expecting to load a game as ?listen and have the map load and be able to play, as a listen host, but instead the ?listen acts the same as just using -server by itself, I just get a command line and no game window

 "C:\Program Files\Rocket\Engine\Binaries\Win64\RocketEditor.exe" E:\RocketVictory\VictoryGame\VictoryGame.uproject Victory?Listen -server -ResX=800 -ResY=600 -WinX=0 -WinY=0 -log

I based this on this example: https://rocket.unrealengine.com/docs/ue4/INT/GettingStarted/Basics/CommandLineArguments/index.html#URLParameters

Success with Three Rocket Exes

I did succeed in loading a multiplayer game using THREE Rocket exe instances though, 1 as server and 2 as client

:) :)

Hi Rama,

Try using: /VictoryGame.uproject Victory?listen -game

I believe that should give you the results you are after, let me know if not.

woohooo that did it! Thanks so much Stephen!

I will be writing a beginners guide to creating multiplayer with UE4 at some point and it will feature this info you've shared with me :)
