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 initiate multiplayer without command line?

I am trying to create a cross-platform multiplayer game. I have had success using the command line to start my server. I have been using the in-game console to join the server on my windows and android clients. My problem is, I can't expect users to type in my server IP on their phones every time they want to play online. Is there a way to create or join servers without using the command-line/in-game console?

You can call ClientTravel() in your PlayerController class to have a client join a game without the user having to do anything via the command line. If your server will have a static IP, that's all there is to it. If not though, the bigger issue is finding servers for the clients to join. Check out the ShooterGameSession class in ShooterGame for an example of finding matches/matchmaking.
