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"

Advanced Sessions - Can't host Steam session

Hey there,

I am working on a Blueprint based multiplayer game which will run on Steam. I am using the Advanced Sessions plugin to host and find games yet I have a problem with hosting games. Unfortunately, it always fails.

Here are some things:

Output when the game tries to create a session:

 LogPlayLevel: [2018.03.01-18.32.40:723][144]LogOnline: Warning: Async task 'FOnlineAsyncTaskSteamCreateLobby bWasSuccessful: 0 LobbyId: 0 LobbyType: 2 Result: '15' k_EResultAccessDenied (access denied)' failed in 0.302356 seconds

Blueprint where the game is created: alt text

DefaultEngine.ini looks like this:


I don't really know what's wrong with it at this point, so any suggestion will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Product Version: UE 4.18

I am also having this problem, did you find any solutions?

Edit* I actually fixed my issue.. I found out I was getting a null player character pass, needed to verify which pc was default for the level.

How are you testing it? Make sure steam is currently running on the computer and you launch a standalone version of the game either through the editor -> Play -▼ "Standalone Game" or right-clicking the project in your system explorer and selecting "Launch Game".
