Hi, I’m new to UE so please be gentle…
I’m trying to put together an automated spectating system, that is, something that will automatically control the camera either during a demo replay or live during a networked game so you get a good view of the action without having to drive the camera yourself.
But to work on a spectating system, you have to have something to spectate! I’d rather not have to put together a whole game before I can even start working on a spectating system. My goal is NOT to write a game but to write a general-purpose spectating system any game can customize and use.
So I’m wondering if there’s a sample that’s already enabled for network and demo record/replay. Something like the “vehicle game” sample would be perfect, but it isn’t enabled for network or demo recording. Has anyone added basic network/demo record to “vehicle game” or created another vehicle sample with multiplayer/record capability I could use?
If there’s nothing else available, I’ll probably use the “Shooter Game” sample, but I think a spectating system for a vehicle game would be more fun to watch.
