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"

How to get FUniqueNetId from TSharedPtr(FUniqueNetId)?

Hey everyone!

Using parenthesis instead of less than or greater than symbols because of the HTML formatting.

Working on a steam leaderboards implementation for my simple VR arcade game.

However, writeleaderboards() requires an FUniqueNetId while GetUniquePlayerId() returns a TSharedPtr(FUniqueNetId)

How can I get a straight up FUniqueNetId from this?

I tried using GetUniquePlayerId().Get() but that returns an FUniqueNetId* which also doesn't work.

For reference:

After you have verified the shared pointer is valid (call the IsValid() method on it), you can dereference the pointer by using an asterisk.

 if (pid.IsValid())
     ion->GetLeaderboardsInterface()->WriteLeaderboards(SessionName, *pid, WriteObject);

You'll also want to ensure your leaderboards' interface is also valid.
