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 make a multiplayer game?

Hello! Just wondering how would I make my game into a multiplayer game. I don’t want a lan or an internet serve, I would like it to connect to one server. Is this possible? Is so how? Thanks in advance!

its a pretty wide ranging and a bit advanced of a topic. if i were you i would start by learning about replication and basic multiplayer. eventually you will need to learn how networking works in general. ill post a few links below of where you could start.

Ok I have one more question. I don’t want to make it a lan server I want to make it where two players from different computers both join one server. How can I do this?

That is called a dedicated server and unfortunately you have to build your own version of Unreal Engine to create one. Or so I am told. Its not TOO bad but you have to set up a few things for C++ compiling. I have never done it myself.
