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"

I'm not a developer, I wandered here by clicking around on the internet... Where should I start?

Hi guys

Like the title says, I'm not an established developer. I am a lurker who found this place. I'd like to spend some time tinkering with the unreal engine.

Of course, I have ideas for video games -- but I have no programming experience. Should I go somewhere else to learn how to program before coming back here to contribute to all the specific technical questions being asked?

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.20

all you need to do is really just familiarize yourself with the editor for a little bit, then follow this playlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M3S3eiJK5I&list=PLL0cLF8gjBpqDdMoeid6Vl5roMl6xJQGC∈dex=1

Feel free to go off course and do your own thing.

Hope that helps.

Nope! Just YouTube and reading documentation. The above link is a good source of tutorials, I found it helpful when I was starting out, along with some other people. As someone who also came from a non-programming background you may find these tutorials also helpful as I go over the basics of creating game play mechanics but focus more on the logic and the reason behind what I am doing, which I would have found helpful early on in my learning.
