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"

Can a development build connect to Steam NOT on the same network?

I followed this most of this tutorial to get multiplayer working via Steam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abmzWUWxy1U

The problem I have is actually connecting to another player on another network via Steam. So far I have been able to connect to another PC on the same network via Steam(using another account) but I can't connect to my friend(who is using a different network) via Steam. Basically, Steam does work BUT only when on the same network. Are we supposed to be able to connect to anyone over steam even on another network? Or just over the same network? I haven't been able to find anyone that mentions only working on the same network

The issue is not the network. It's the region lock if you are using Steam_appid = 480. To get around this, make sure that both parties are using the same DOWNLOAD REGION.
