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"

Multiple Controllers On User Interface

Hello, I have a local multiplayer game I'm making and I'd like to have multiple controllers controlling the same UI but I'm only able to control the UI with one controller/keyboard

I tried to layer multiple of the same UI on top of each other but that doesn't seem to work

Any help on how I should go about making this? thank you!

If it's about one keyboard and one controller you could check that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1I89T3dr_g It worked for me in the past.

Thanks, I'm able to control the game itself fine with multiple controllers, my problem is controlling my character select menu with different controllers.

I tried to spawn characters in the background and then have it create the UI for each character but that didn't seem to work.

I also tried to create the UI's in the level blueprint and in the HUD widget itself but that also did not work either.

I'm only able to control the UI being player controller 0

I can control the UI with the controller but it picks off where my mouse left off so I don't know if its being read as player controller 1 etc, it should be a different cursor going in its own direction.

can you create some inputs with both controllers? for example the OK input could be the Enter key on your keyboard and the A button of your game controller.
