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 implement Steam Friends Status

In steam many games set a friends status, or what steam calls "lobby metadata". It shows information about what gamemode, map your playing, people in your lobby with you etc. I've attached a picture of what it looks like. Is there anyway to achieve this with the UE4 steam integration? I'm also using the advanced sessions plugin if that helps...

Thank you very much, it seems like “SetRichPresence” is what I need. Are there any tutorials or examples of using this that you know of? I’d ideally like to find a way of implementing this into a blueprint function library if possible as my C++ is not great...

Thanks for the quick answer!
