I’ve begun my dive into multiplayer with Unreal. I’ve read through eXi’s manual, read the wiki and collected my remaining questions here.
1) Do I need to use the CreatePlayer node for LAN or online play? Or is this just for split screen? Does this node just create a controller, a default pawn, and a player state?
2) Does joining a session automatically create a new player controller and pawn assigned to the joining client? If there is an unused player controller will it be assigned to the joining client instead of a new one?
4) When mixing split screen and networked play, what’s a good way to make sure I’m running functions on the correct player? Should I create and fill my own array of player controllers?
5) Does anyone have any warnings or advice about mixing split screen and networked play? For example, two players on one computer with a friend joining via internet.
I’d really appreciate any advice. Thanks.
