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] Finding online sessions

Hi all,

So I've spent the last week or so scouting most "Can't find online session" post and couldn't really find any fixes for my issue. Basically, I am working on a online game and I am currently implementing Steam features using Advanced Sessions using 2 computers with two different Steam accounts. I have a Lobby and a Server Search menu that both work perfectly fine when using LAN (Hosted servers show up in a server list, clicking makes the client join the lobby). But I can't seem to make Steam session appear in my Server List. 

I know this is not an issue with my Steam set up since I can invite/join lobbies through the Steam interface as well as using "open steam.XXXX". Looking at the log (Here), it seems like the client is finding some results but not the one I am hosting. I find it really weird since I have tried using all sorts of filters, and setting the max result to insane numbers to make sure my lobby would be in but nothing is happening. I am mainly testing using Standalone Mode, but I tried Launching it as well with no success. Anyone has any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?


To sum up:

LAN only: Server appears in server list, joining works as expected

LAN server while connected to Steam: Server appears with 9999 ping, joining don't work (which is normal from what I gathered)

Online server using Steam subsystem: Server doesn't appear, joining works fine through Steam interface and "open steam.XXXX"
