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 Achievements cache always failing


Hello All - I'm trying to get steam achievements to work and I'm having an issue where the 'cache achievements' is always failing. I've got the steam online subsystem working and I've followed instructions (https://forums.unrealengine.com/development-discussion/blueprint-visual-scripting/1432526-steam-achievements-implementation-for-ue4-developers-tips-and-tricks & https://forums.unrealengine.com/community/community-content-tools-and-tutorials/26348-tutorial-steam-achievements) - but its just not working

in the first tutorial the author mentions that you need to create stats in steam works for the achievement to work. Is this true?

I have also noticed that in my steamworks > achievements > my ID starts from 2/0 (instead of 1/0 as shown in tutorials) - so I'm wondering if I need to change the achievement ID reference in the defaultengine.ini, but I'm unsure what that ID should look like. I've tried Achievement_2_0_Id="NEW_ACHIEVEMENT_11_0" but it didn't work.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

I figured it out. When dragging the pin from 'player controller' and selecting 'Cache Achievement' - by default the pin gets connected to 'World Context' which is incorrect.

incorrect version:

Create 'Cache Achievement' then link the 'Player Controller' pin to the 'Player Controller' slot on the 'Cache Achievement'

Correct Version: alt text

hope this helps someone :)
