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"

Hello,

Thanks for the question, the Engine is very likely not broken, the Top Down sample is not set up for multiplayer I believe.

As you mentioned you are new to Unreal I would recommend you check out a few of the great tutorials around, or if you're keen on jumping in with multiplayer, take a look at a few of the multiplayer enabled projects on the launcher learn tab. Multiplayer shootout covers networking using only blueprints, or Shooter Game shows more advanced implementation.

I would recommend if you're new to Unreal, you hold off on multiplayer until you are comfortable with setting up some single player gameplay. The networking setups builds on single player setups and adds a extra level of logic, so its best to be comfortable with the basics first. Epic have many great tutorials on their youtube page, or if you prefer to reverse-engineer, all the projects on the launcher learn tab can be downloaded and taken apart to figure out how they work.

Hope that helps.. Dan.
