How do I get a steam avatar with OnlineSubsystemSteam
Hello everyone I currently have connected to the steam's OnlineSubsystem and have managed to get both the players Steam ID as well as their Steam nickname. One final thing I'm looking at trying to get is the users profile picture. I'm wondering is it at all possible to do this out of the box with the OnlineSubsystem API or if I will actually have to include "ISteamFriends.h" and "ISteamUtils.h" and work with the raw Steamworks API?
Also if anyone has managed to get this working before, would they be willing to let me know how?

I ended up implementing it myself currently with the Steamworks API with this function here, based on what I read from that thread and what I managed to hack together to flip blue and red color channels. I do still find it very odd that there is no built in support for this with OnlineSubsystemSteam as far as I could tell, but I could be missing it. If I am and anyone knows I'd be grateful to be pointed in the right direction.
Looks like you need to integrate it yourself using the Steam API. Wondering though why this isn't part of the Online Subsystem? Is it planned and just not integrated yet? Is it something a developer could add and submit?
