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"

Force packaged game to start in specific level?

Hi there,

How do I force my packaged game to start in the menu, and ignore the command-line option to start in a specific level? I can see how the command-line option makes sense for multi-player games, but it doesn't really make sense for a single-player game.

Hi there, thanks for the response. I know that I can make the game start on a map by default, but you can still override it with command-line options like this:

 MyGame.exe MyMap

I would like a way to prevent that. Thanks!
