I’m looking to setup the networking (i.e. GameSession, MatchMaking, ect.) of my game and while the shooter example demonstrates this, it’s not straight forward and doesn’t do much for explanation. I would really like to learn how to properly setup the multiplayer features but there’s no walkthrough or explanation of how to do so.
also, do I have the option of building on top of the ShooterGame demo or do I risk some sort of legal actions. I would love to learn how to set this stuff up but the lack of information and documentation is really discouraging me.
There has to be some sort of useful information somewhere, right? I mean, how do the people at Epic learn how to use and implement this stuff?
Thanks for the info. I do understand replication and RPC’s. It’s pretty simple. I’ve even put together my own implementation to handle “Big Data” because currently UE4 can’t do it. What I am having trouble with is setting up Sessions and Matchmaking using an online subsystem.
I think this is the site that is meant to be used for documentation and examples but at closer inspection of the links and information, it’s rather lacking.
I agree that it is lacking quite a bit, I think their main focus is on Blueprint support for the non-programmer at the moment as they added Online Subsystem session nodes to Blueprint recently. I think your best option right now is to look at ShooterGame code, or the Unreal Tournament code which is on GitHub.
