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"

Host Migration Via Blueprints

Hi guys,

So I've looked pretty much everywhere and haven't figured this one out yet. My project uses Steam Subsystem and player hosting. Matches are pretty simple and the game is mostly finished, but when a host leaves the game it ruins the experience for other players. I need to find a way to select a new host and have everyone else reconnect to that player.

So far the only option I've found is storing a "backup" host on each client locally with the second best ping in case the initial host quits/disconnects. This seems like a reasonable workaround except that I cannot figure out how that new host would pull each of the remaining clients back into his new game after he created a new session. The issue is getting that specific blueprint session data to each clients so that they know which session to join.

Any ideas help, meanwhile I'm playing around with Advanced Sessions and trying to see if there's anyway to store a secret key or something to help find the back up host's session.

Product Version: UE 4.18
