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 GameInstance be saved to Save Game object?

Working on a new game and wanted to add save system last game I scrapped it because couldn't get it to work. So here is my question I have learned how to save and load variables in my character class, but what I want to do is save my whole game instance in a save game object, so when the game loads it will be like you left with certain doors unlocked etc.. I am pretty sure this must be possible but when I try create saved game and add reference to my game instance nothing seems to save. Do I need to create the save game object functions in the game instance or out side of it? Hopefully this sounds correct.

Yes, on my "Auto Save" plugin I have a function in C++ to save and load the whole GameInstance at once; but I'm not sure if it's possible without C++ tho.

Interesting you have any tutorials or information I can look at? Yeah I have been trying to figure out how to do this through blueprints and save like anything else but not working.
