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"

how long it would take to create multiplayer game for new user?

Am trying to build a serious game, I was using Unity but I struggeled a lot with the coding. I been adviced to switch my design to unreal engine and use blueprint language as it's easier for people who has no experience with coding language. I would like to know how long it would take to build a a game system using blueprint? I consider my self as a quick learner. as well my deadline for the application is on August, 2018.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Omayma

Product Version: UE 4.18

Thats complex question, it depends on what you want to make and what you will need to add in to the engine with your blueprint code

it really does depend on a lot of factors like what systems your looking to implement and how many. theres also the learning of the code itself and what nodes there are. i suppose it may be easier for you is you already know some coding and moreso if you already know some c.

to make the simplest answer the minimum to make a multiplayer game from scratch is a few hours and thats if you follow something like the tutorial from epic. this type of thing will have limited functionality though.

Thank you for your answer. Am designing for (Oculus) headset. I started with unity as it simple to export to any other platform like android and IOS, but I struggeled a lot with the coding, any advice?

advise huh. well that all depends on the subject at hand but in general i wouldnt start in on a major project if your just learning the engine i would take a little time and do a few tutorials to familiarize yourself with the features and the visual scripting if thats what your looking to use. make a few small things before moving on to the bigger more involved stuff. also you probably know this already but google is your best friend.
