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"

Game Won't run through Steam

We have had a number of alpha testers (about 20%) unable to play our game. When they launch it through Steam, it runs as a background process and never opens. If they try again Steam says already running. We are unsure what to do.

We have never had this issue outside of Steam, and the users who are affected are able to run the game if they drag it to another folder and open it outside of Steam (but then they can't play online). We aren't doing anything fancy with Steam, just host game and join game. Would appreciate any help!

Product Version: UE 4.17

Have you requested a client log from these users? It may help you find out what is wrong.

We plan to do that next. We discovered that the problem seems to happen to anyone who doesn't store the game in their C drive. Any ideas what could possibly cause this?
