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 Subsystem does not find a persons session in packaged game

Hey so i'm trying to get a multiplayer game working via the steam subsystem. I have packaged the game as development so that it automatically put the appid in there. When I previously opened up the game to see if everything was fine, I went on join session and I saw some random persons session (Probably from another game because of the 480 app id). The issue is now that I got my friend to download the game, We cannot find each others sessions. Is their some specific thing i'm supposed to do? I use simple host session and join session nodes. Reply if you need any images of things.

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hey tbjbu1, I managed to get it working. Basically I packaged the project as development so that it automatically put in the steam developer app id. The thing about it is that it has some sort of region lock so it worked fine with my friends that live near me however it did not work with a friend I have in another country.

Weird. For me it just never finds any session, not even an error. If you manage to get it fully working let me know. Good luck!
