4.13 Steam Setup Not Working
I'm having trouble getting unreal engine 4.13 to host a session. The project was previously working fine in 4.12.5.
As a test I started a new blank template from 4.12.5, Adding just the steam config in the engine file and played in Standalone. The steam overlay was visible on shift+tab. However on 4.13 doing the same processes it is not, am I missing a setting or something? Or is this just a bug?
Thanks In Advance

You need to do two things in 4.13.
First, add this to your defaultengine.ini file:
Steam should work.

Here is an example project in 4.13.1 that works with Steam. I have tested internally and we are able to join and run around together while Steam is active in the game, under "Space Wars" because the default AppId.
A few notes about things I have noticed regarding other users issues:
Do not use "GetPlayerController" element 0 for everything. Even if it often works, it is a bad idea in Multiplayer games as sometimes, it will choose a Player Controller that is not yours, because it always chooses 0. You can instead rely on your Player Controller or Character classes to get direct reference to the Player Controller class that your Character is using.
Don't assume that deleting or only using portions of tutorials will work. If its included in an example or tutorial, follow the instruction completely.
If you are having an issue, expeirment with why it's happening before assuming the engine is broken. Something like Steam has been integrated for a long time and the chances of something core in that subsystem breaking are pretty slim. Here are the major Steam issues at the moment, none of which would block creating a game:
There is also a community update to the Steam Authority Ticket response, which is currently not working. The pull request is here: (You must be signed up for GitHub with UnrealEngine as one of your organizations.HERE is how to do that.)
