Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Steam Overlay Isn't Working in Shipping Build

When I package my game for shipping the Steam overlay doesn't work. I seems as if it isn't enabled. It works fine in the editor and in the stand alone version but for some reason when I package it for shipping it doesn't show up.

Is there additional steps I need to take in order for the Packaged game to work with Steam SDK?

Here are my config files: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uggfv6x0d42ncw3/AAComNCgijTWL2D_MB3_KmZqa?dl=0

Did you set up SteamOnlineSubsystem and AppId? did you check if packaged configs are ok?

I found somewhere else where they said you "need to add in your final release folder the Steam DLL Needed and of course your app_id.txt". But I am unclear on what he means by that.

I am not a 100% what you means by setting up SteamOnlineSubsystem. I followed both Unreal's and Rama's guide to integrating Steam SDK. But like I said the Overlay and everything works great as long as you don't package the game with the shipping configuration.

As for the App ID I am currently using 480, the default developer ID. I don't know if this is a problem.

I looked at the config files for the packages game and they appear to be exactly the same as the config files in the editor.
