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"

Can load/save save files from menu but not from playercontroller?

I just started learning about save game files and I've set up a simple save game class for storing the players name and the likes.

This is from the options menu widget blueprint and it works perfectly, and I have a load function that also works.

However, when I copy this exact script and put it in my playercontroller to load the player name when I get into the game, it doesn't work. Saving gives a false return value and loading returns nothing.

What am I not understanding? Can I simply not load/save from PCs?

You should be able to, are you using your PC?

Also, can you show this function execute in the PC?

Hi! Yes, the PC is being used, as I'm able to run the other scripts in the PC. I'm sure the script runs as I can put a print node on the end and it fires.

Hm, do you fire any of them in onBeginPlay by any chance?

No, this comes after OnPostLogin from the game mode

When a new player connects to the lobby the GM runs the initial setup event on the individual PC, which contains just the load/save function before sending that info to the server
