How do I use my MySQL Database to save a players inventory?


I am looking to use the MySQL database to save players’ inventory items when they log off, but I am not quite sure how to do that in Unreal Engine 4. Do I have to own servers? Is there some sort of programming requirement?

Any answers are greatly appreciated.


Unreal API does not support MySQL protocols, you will need to implement it yourself via C++, by creating plug in…

Or you can use some MySQL libery direcly in gameplay code, in both cases you will need to link exernal liberies, it UBT it requires build script edit, here tutorial:

Thank you, I will try this out.
I really appreciate your help and support.
