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 would send saved data to a player when they join?

I want to know 2 things, when a player joins my session, how can I identify them (name etc) and how would I send a struct to them. Also, when they leave, how would I know that?

Product Version: UE 4.20

The Game Mode if I'm not mistaken handles that information (on player joined). Likewise, whenever a controller is destroyed would symbolize which player has just left.

You can then have an Interface set of Functions that would take care of the sending information back and forth.

For the Player Name and all, there are Player Controller IDs (and there are other functions available depending on the Networking API that you are using, such as Steamworks).
