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 Internet Session vs. Lobby Session

I was hoping someone could enlighten me on the different session types for Steam subsystem (expanding into how other online subsystems use these would also be bonus)

  1. When changing the bIsPresence flag the Steam subsystem will either create an internet session or a lobby session. What is the difference and when should I use one or the other?

  2. When setting the session name to either GameSession or PartySession, what is this doing? It seems like the same thing bIsPresence is doing.

  3. When using different session names (GameSession and PartySession) it appears I can create both a party session and a game session at the same time with Steam, but I do not think this is the case. Example: If I create a GameSession, and then try to create another GameSession it fails because it already exists, but if I game a GameSession, then a PartySession, then ANOTHER GameSession it succeeds. Does this mean the original GameSession is destroyed automatically?
