I tried emailing Unreal with these questions and I was refereed to this thread. I’m as much of a beginner as you possibly can be so please bare with me. I’m trying to figure out if UE suites my needs and if so which programs I need. I copy and pasted most of my email and questions here.
I want to create/design my own First person arena style shooter using Xbox controllers on the computer and depending how to goes msybe some day playing it on the actual Xbox one.
. I’ve been doing some Reading/research on UR engine and I’d like to start playing around with it and learning how to use it so I can create my own FPS arena shooter. I would be creating something that would be eventually be played/tested on the xboxone hopefully or at least on the computer using Xbox controllers.
So my questions are what products or versions of Unreal engine do I need to purchase or download so that I can create my game on the computer (will most likely be using a MAC) And then port it over to or test it on the Xbox one? if you think I’m better off using a different computer your recommendations are welcomed. Also do Xbox controllers work on macs or work on macs if it’s plugged into a hard drive? Can I plug an Xbox controller into my computer or HD so as I’m creating the game I can tailor it and test to be used with a controller? Is it possible as I’m designing creating the game to test it with other friends on the Xbox one online or on the computer using Xbox controllers online?
My goal is to build, design, and create a game that will eventually be played on the Xbox one (if it makes it that farfingers crossed) and if possible played on the Xbox one for testing purposes or be played on the computer using Xbox controllers. The game will be created designed around using an Xbox controller to play.
I would really appreciate it if you can enlighten me to what products I should buy or download from unreal? If it is possible to test a game with multiple people on the Xbox one online, and if so what I need to do to make that possible? Or if it’s possible to test/play with other people on the computer with an Xbox controller online? Or if any of these things are possible?
Thank you so much for your time answering my questions and getting me pointed in the right direction. This is something I’m very eager and excited to start getting into even though I’m a beginner, and considering I’m a beginner I hope that the way I explained it makes sense. So thanks again for your time, insight, advice and patience.
And if i sent this reply to the wrong category or thread or you aren’t able to answer my questions can you please refer me to the correct place to ask.
Thanks, appreciate your time.
