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"

Steamworks Integration in a VR Game

Hi Unreal Community,

So this is a rather open question on VR game deployment and more specifically for Steam. I've succesfully enabled the Steam OnlineSubsystem in my VR-only game but as you may guess, the API does not exactly work well with a VR environment, and is quite "broken" even if it's kind of normal considering the game is in stereo.

Now my question is simple: As we get closer to our release for our game, we are looking into the deployment process for our game and I wonder if Steamworks for VR is something that exist and how it works. For example is there a Steam Overlay specifically for VR? I was under the assumption that Steam VR was supposed to be just that, but it's rather confusing now since SteamVR seems to both mean the Steam HMD (The HTC Vive) and also the Steamworks VR integration. It's all kind of confusing so any input on this would be great!

We are still under 4.7 but we are planning to switch to 4.8 next week and I see a lot of SteamVR related stuff in the 4.8 release so maybe some of this is already in the editor.

Any info on that would be great!
