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"

If your integrating steam works in your game. This could help https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/api/ISteamRemoteStorage

You need to Setup your Adminpage They have a good documation here link text

FileForget bool FileForget( const char pchFile ); Name Type Description pchFile const char The name of the file that will be forgotten.

Deletes the file from remote storage, but leaves it on the local disk and remains accessible from the API.

When you are out of Cloud space, this can be used to allow calls to FileWrite to keep working without needing to make the user delete files.

How you decide which files to forget are up to you. It could be a simple Least Recently Used (LRU) queue or something more complicated.

Requiring the user to manage their Cloud-ized files for a game, while is possible to do, it is never recommended. For instance, "Which file would you like to delete so that you may store this new one?" removes a significant advantage of using the Cloud in the first place: its transparency.

Once a file has been deleted or forgotten, calling FileWrite will resynchronize it in the Cloud. Rewriting a forgotten file is the only way to make it persisted again.

Returns: bool true if the file exists and has been successfully forgotten; otherwise, false.

Hope it helps
