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"

Change Split-Screen In Game

Hi there, I am making a game in which there is a main menu where I need all players to select their characters simultaneously but the actual gameplay portion is splitscreen. Is there some way to make it such that the main game is splitscreen, but the main menu is not?

Late response here but others might find it on google. Yes, you should make an entire new set of Blueprints for Player Controller and GameMode when you use the Main Menu. When you transfer to your game map you can change the GameMode (and along with it, controller, pawn, hud class etc) in "World Settings" on your map. Under Game Mode, just override the default game mode (main menu) with your gameplay GameMode.

In your menu game mode you can simply turn off split screen.

Hi, I'm also looking into that. What did you mean by "you can simply turn off split screen"? I'm talking Blueprint here. Is there a check box or a function I call?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92KQZ9Crlw0 This tutorial isn't working on 4.20.3. I copied him to the letter and I always get compiler failed:
