      I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the art section, but in the end it seemed more of a career question. If it needs to be moved, please do that.
      I'm a writer first.  That's what I've been doing for years (comics and screenplays) and that's the main path I want to take in the gaming industry.  But I'm realistic, and I know that I'm one in millions competing for very few spots, so I want to add some more skills to make myself more appealing.  I had to learn some programming for school, and I know that's not the path I want to take.  It just doesn't click with me. I've been learning 3ds Max for a while, and I think I'm decent at modeling some basic stuff (non-character) but I also recognize that I have a long way to go before I'm actually good. I'm not very good with materials and textures yet, and horrible with animation, and I get a little overwhelmed looking at just how much I have left to learn if I want to do it all.  I think I should focus on one area to improve for now, and eventually work on the rest.
      I've worked a little bit with particles in a few learning projects in Max and Unreal and really enjoyed it.  So the question is, if I want to really focus on the VFX side of things, what's the best way to do it?  Should I focus on doing it through one of the modeling programs like Max, Maya, or Houdini,  or should I focus on the stuff built into the game engine (Unreal is what I use now because it's what we use for school, I plan to eventually get a feel for Unity and maybe Lumberyard)?  Or should I focus on a 3rd party plugin like PopcornFx that can be used in multiple programs?

      Hello,
      I am sending compressed json data from the UE4 client to a C++ server made with boost.
      I am using ZLib to compress and decompress all json but it doesn't work. I am now encoding it in base64 to avoid some issues but that doesn't change a thing.
      I currently stopped trying to send the data and I am writing it in a file from the client and trying to read the file and decompress on the server side.
      When the server is trying to decompress it I get an error from ZLib : zlib error: iostream error
      My question is the following : Did anyone manage to compress and decompress data between a UE4 client and a C++ server ?
      I cannot really configure anything on the server side (because boost has its ZLib compressor) and I don't know what is wrong with the decompression.
      Any idea ?

      Hello everyone,

      I am happy to introduce you the FPS project I am working on with 2 of my friends: Warcry: Extermination

      We have been working on it for a few years now, and decided to move to Unreal Engine about a year ago, to finalize our prototype.

      The game is an old school FPS, somewhere between quake and Serious Sam, unforgiving like Dark Souls and in Dungeon like environments, that will maybe remind you Skyrim a bit.

      As for any good FPS out there, the main focus is on combat, however, we haven’t neglected exploration, platforms, traps and puzzles neither! The levels can be explored freely, with many secret locations to discover.

      In Warcry: Extermination, you will also be able to upgrade your weapons and acquire new powers, such as Dash, Hologram or even Slow motion. I will tell you more about it later !


      And here is how it looks in Unreal Engine 4 :



      We should be able to show you more next week!

      I am trying to recreate the combat system in the game Life is Feudal but make it more complex. The fighting system works by taking in the direction of the mouse movement and if you press the left click it will swing in that direction, though stab, overhead, left (up, down, left right) and right are the only swings that you can do. If you wanted to you could also hold the swing by holding left click so you are able to swing at the perfect moment in the battle. I want to change this so add in more swing directions but I also want to code this from scratch in Unreal. Can anyone give me any pointers or maybe a few snippets of code that work in Unreal that could help me start to implement this type of system?
