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"

You purposely have to setup sessions and connections, so you can keep track that way. Every time a person connects, increment a player count.

Networking is a huge topic. Setting it up and running is easy enough, its fully comprehending replication that takes time.

Some links to unreal training: https://api.unrealengine.com/INT/Videos/PLZlv_N0_O1ga0aV9jVqJgog0VWz1cLL5f/uCjXJD9AhqY/index.html https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/blog/blueprint-networking-tutorials

Tons of videos out there on youtube, just search for "unreal networking", "unreal network sessions", "unreal multiplayer".

You're looking specifically for Host Session and Join Session. The first link above is for the multiplayer shootout example that demonstrates the extreme basics.
