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 is steamworks integrated with a UE4 dedicated server.

I want to host a UE4 dedicated server on like digital ocean or somewhere. Can I then integrate Steamworks with that dedicated server to be the master server? Also how in the world is steamworks free. Does anyone have an answer for that?

Product Version: UE 4.15

This is a troublesome area for many myself included. There was a pr that people have gotten working but requires using advanced sessions and the pr I believe if you look for using steamworks you'll come across the wiki. I haven't gotten it workjng myself.

However unreal has mentioned a steam oss update in the works in crossing my fingers they'll get the kind of support for this as changes in engine versions have broke. Such things and require a 3rd party to update this code to be compatible.

So for now you're looking at just player to player hosted servers :(

Here is what I was referring to https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Using_Steamworks_with_UE4
