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"

Steam Overlay Not Working Plugin Enabled

I'm having trouble getting the steam overlay to work in my packaged game. I'm using the generic shooter pack which has it's own defaultengine.ini settings, first I'm wondering how to best arrange those.

Here's the defaultengine.ini https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LAg5Q3XPEp5hOBQqfanyDXbcOa_t2rtd4fz5DfNHzJQ/edit?usp=sharing

After enabling the steam plugin and restarting, standalone will crash on start up, and the game will package with a warning that looks like this, even though the api is in the right directory.

LogOnline:Display: STEAM: Loading Steam SDK 1.32 LogMac:Warning: dlopen failed: dlopen(/Users/Shared/UnrealEngine/4.14/Engine/Binaries/Mac/UE4Editor.app/Contents/MacOS/libsteam_api.dylib, 5): image not found LogOnline:Warning: STEAM: Steam SDK 1.32 libraries not present at or failed to load!

And here's the standalone crash report: https://docs.google.com/document/d/14EjdN4_fHpnqtl9UZSqXftfUQGIlKIjB3VpH7DIbT5Y/edit?usp=sharing

EDIT: Also I know that for mac it should be run through steam, but that doesn't work.

And here are the tutorials I have been trying already for the ini and sdk configuration:

Hello Pheeeeno,

This is a known issue and is something that we are unable to fix. This is an issue that Valve will need to fix to make the overlay compatible with UE4. There's a bug that was entered for this back in 4.8 but it's marked as Wont Fix as it's not something we can handle. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to get the Steam overlay working on Mac.
