    [GAME] Free UE4 Multiplayer Template Project - Listen Server, Steam



    UE4 Multiplayer Template

    Hi All.
    I made this project because I think multiplayer games share most menu features.
    I thought it would be nice to not have to start over from scratch, every time I try some new multiplayer game design.

    Features:
    • Everything in blueprint.
    • Only listen servers
    • You can use it for dedicated server too but you need UE4 source build, search for how to make a dedicated server.
    • Steam Profiles and Finding / Hosting Games through Steam, Requires you to be logged in on Steam and run as Standalone Game or Packaged Project.
    • Main Menu.
    • Host Menu.
    • Server Menu.
    • Lobby Menu.
    • Gameplay Game Mode which has timers that changes the Match State to: Waiting to Start, In Progress and Waiting Post Match.
    • Ps. Lobby count down timer starts when server is full and everyone is ready.
    • Ps. Gameplay timers can be found in GameplayGameState.

    Instructions:
    • Pack it up.
    • Rebuild project.
    • Start steam if you already haven't.
    • Run as Standalone Game or Packaged Project.
    • Make a great game.

    Download:
    v4.20

    This is exactly what I was needing. I wanted to use simple listen server and steam for a project but wasn't sure where to start. I am sure this will help get things moving much faster thanks man

        How is it working for everyone?
        Anything you think should be different?
        Anything you think is missing?

        Unfortunately i can't make dedicated servers.
        Seems like you need UE4 source to be able to build a server version.
        There are a few tutorials out there about making a dedicated server.

          I'm really close to getting the project to work with Amazon Game Lift, cloud hosting for dedicated servers

                Demrok I answered Connor in a pm It does work, are you using UE4 4.20? You only have to click rebuild and it should start. Another one i helped had something going on with visual studio, but the template started after a reinstall of VS. Feel free to join me on Discord.

                      Does this work with 4.21?

                          I tried packing it with shipping options for windows x64 and in logs I get Steam API disabled yellow warning message. Any idea how to fix it?

                            Same happens to me as draand28 mentioned above. I tried to google it but no solution found yet. I'm using engine version 4.21.

                              draand28 , it can be that the advanced session plugin has been change to work with 4.21.
                              Try replacing the advanced session plugins with mordentals new plugin.

                              Sorry that I havent upgraded the project myself yet, I'm working on getting Gamelift working atm.
