Viewing and Editing Live Config

On your running World

When you start a world, your Live Config settings will be available to view and edit. Click the Edit button as shown below

This will display a pop up which displays all available Live Config settings, which can be freely edited for your world. The toggle on the top right hand corner switches between a form and a JSON editor interface.

Once you've made changes, you must click the Submit button at the bottom of the page for your changes to be saved - your configuration change will be seen by your clients and server within a few seconds.

If you would like to cancel your changes, simply close the pop-up.

On your Editor

Live Config is also available in the Origin Editor for development purposes. When you run with Play-In-Editor, Live Config settings will be generated for your game session, which can be navigated to from the editor pop-up on the bottom right corner of your screen.

Clicking Open navigates you to an explorer window containing json files of your available live config settings.

Open these files on your text editor of choice and view/amend your settings as necessary. Once the file is saved, your setting changes should be picked up by the PIE client/server within seconds.

Note that any changes you made will not persist between PIE sessions. A new set of config files would be generated every time a new PIE session is started. If you'd like to make changes to your setting that persists, refer to Overriding default Live Config settings. It is highly recommended that you test any changes made to Live Config (i.e. either afterAdding new Live Config settings or Overriding default Live Config settings) on PIE before deploying your world. Any errors on your Live Config setup will result in the following failure pop-up to appear instead, and you can refer to your Editor logs to debug the issue.
