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"

Impossible to find Steam Sessions when using Source Build in 4.20

I've made a build of the release branch from source, and when using this version of the engine I am unable to find any sessions. None of my session code has changed between the launcher and engine version, so something is amiss here. Using a launcher version of the engine results in this system working fine.

For a test project, you can use either ShooterGame or Multiplayer Shootout. Build a source version of 4.20 from the release branch and publish it to steam with a valid AppID. If one player hosts a match (via listen server), another player will NOT be able to find that match.

Forum thread is here, but this hasn't yet solved my problem: https://forums.unrealengine.com/community/general-discussion/1497867-steam-online-subsystem-not-finding-server-with-find-sessions-with-4-20

Note - if I launch the game OUTSIDE of Steam (and ensure that the steam client is closed on both machines), the game will fallback to the IPNetDriver and I will be able to find sessions without any issues.

This is clearly an issue with the Steam Session Interface, which for some reason only occurs in a source engine build.
