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 to get a connection string for a party beacon host from an steam invite?

I was wondering how you can get the connection URL for the party beacon just off of a friend invite on steam. But I did not see the invite to game option appear in the steam friends list when I just started a party session with a PartyBeacon. Here is the code that I used to start the hosting of the beacon

 FActorSpawnParameters params;
     params.SpawnCollisionHandlingOverride = ESpawnActorCollisionHandlingMethod::AlwaysSpawn;
     AOnlineBeaconHost* host = GetWorld()->SpawnActor<AOnlineBeaconHost>(AOnlineBeaconHost::StaticClass(), params);
     // actually start the party
     // spawn the beacon actor
     AHarvestPartyBeaconHost* beaconHostObject = GetWorld()->SpawnActor<AHarvestPartyBeaconHost>(AHarvestPartyBeaconHost::StaticClass(), params);
     beaconHostObject->InitHostBeacon(10, 4, 100, "Party");

Do I actually have to have an actual Unreal Steam Session started as well as a partyBeacon connection for this to work?

If anyone has any ideas what the best way is to obtain a party connection string please let me know! Thanks!
