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 to add a State to PlayerController?

I'm failing to find where does the basics PlayerController states are declared and defined: NAME_Inactive NAME_None NAME_Playing NAME_Spectating

I know that I can just add use a literal FName for this, but I wanted to understand how they are declared and if it's possible to add my custom states as predefined constants.

Product Version: UE 4.19

It might be helpful to understand what you end goal is. Are you trying to track your own game specific state information in the player controller? If so then it probably will be better to create your own state machine parallel to the PlayerController states where your own game specific logic can be stored.
