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 do I get Players joining a Session to the right world?

I have a dedicated Menu world that gets loaded on startup and displays my UI. There is a Host-button which creates a session and loads up the actual world (Blueprint) and a list of sessions already opened, which will connect to the session when they are clicked and load up the map as well Blueprint. The map etc. are the defaults from the ThirdPersonExample.

However this does not seem to load the same map, but a new instance of the map, as neither of the players can see eachother, so my question is: How do I load the same map the host has loaded?

The ones responsible for joining and hosting are already attached as images. Did you mean any other?

Oh sorry I didnt see those links. Your host button open level needs an option for this to work. Type in “listen” without the quotes. Its also probably better to use “get owning player” instead of get player controller.

Next where is your find session node? How do you have that setup, its the one that outputs the session to join.
