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"

No Find Session Results STEAM Online

Hey there,

just to make it short...I am not able to find any Sessions after creating them with the "Advanced Sessions Plugin"!

Information: I am able to connect with 2 (or more) clients in my editor. So i create a session and the other clients find it and can join. Even on the check mark dedicated server or not! BUT after packeding it isnt possible! The Log means:

 UE4Editor-Cmd: LogOnline:Display: STEAM: Loading Steam SDK 1.32
 UE4Editor-Cmd: LogOnline:Warning: STEAM: Steam API disabled!
 UE4Editor-Cmd: LogOnline:Display: STEAM: OnlineSubsystemSteam::Shutdown()

To clarify: I did edit the "DefaultEngine.ini" with [OnlineSubsystem] and SteamDevAppId etc. I created the steam_appid.txt with 480. Means i get in editor aswell in the packed version the steam overlay!

Besides that, maybe i am totally missunderstand everything and i have to buy a gameserver? Or am I right, that you are able to connect via Internet with the SteamOnlineSubsystem?

Reason is I already created my Game in a VPN-Connection soultion, (so connecting via IP-address), but i want to make it live so you can join over the internet.

Hopfully somebody can explain and even help me fixing the issue, best regards PA

Hey Platinum Angel,

We do not provide support for third-party plugins, so if you are running into issues related to the Advanced Sessions plugin, I'd recommend getting in touch with the creator of that plugin for more information.

However, what I can do for you is provide you with a test project that works with Steam and you can take a look at the setup for your own reference. This should give you a good idea of how to set up a system for Creating and Joining sessions through Steam. Make sure to have Steam running while you are attempting to test.

Have a great day
