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"

if your just starting out then your scope is to large. you are going to want to focus on learning to make smaller things first. learn to make a character blueprint for example. do a bunch of tutorials like this one to learn the basics of the engine and how to make basic games. if you dont know how to build the basic parts of your game then you cant make the whole of it. also fighting games are pretty advanced. they can be very complex to make given that so many things are based on proper / exact timing. the tutorial i linked will get you started in creating a player character, getting it to move, and animating it. that tutorial series is a set of videos that are only about 10 mins each and should only take you maybe a few hours to get though.

If you start out trying to make a game like that then you will fail and give up on game programming entirely. We want you to like game programming so we suggest that you start small and work your way up to something big like Mortal Kombat. That's something even the best of us would find challenging.

Think about it like this: if you wanted to learn about building cars would you ask how to build a Ferrari?

Your best route towards a fighting game is to search for "UE4 beginner tutorial" on YouTube and work your way up. I suppose you can watch the tutorial that @BreakMaker linked but I suspect you will run into things you can't make sense of.

Most people who go that route end up coming back here and asking us question after question as they run into problems in their tutorials. That's no way to learn anything. And it makes our lives harder because any answer we give won't be understood so we end up writing it for them. Again, no learning. And that means they'll always depend on others.

What you want to do is plan your route so you are making fun things as you work towards a fighting game. So maybe since a fighting game has jumping in it, you try some third person tutorials and then try some jump tutorials. Fighting games require collision detection so you could learn about collision/overlap in general first. The more you learn the more you'll know where you need to go next.

Good luck and remember: there's no shortcut to mastery. That's why there are so few masters.
