    Hi Mythic!

    We're encountering a very strange problem, and I'm reaching out to anyone that may be knowledgeable on the topic -- so who better!

    We have just moved our engine from 4.17.2 to 4.20.2 and have not been able to see steam games in the session browser any longer. However the discovery process WILL find 4.17.2 sessions.

    So our 4.20 clients can see 4.17 dedicated servers, but not 4.20 dedicated servers.

    We have some confusion surrounding the third party steam dll's as well. What is the proper location for these? Our 4.17 dedicated server builds worked without copying them into the <ProjectName>/Binaries/Win64 folder but 4.20 does not seem to. Does this mean we've missed a config step and UE4 can't find them in the ThirdParty folder or.....

    If you have any suggestions for where to start looking, please reply!

      Sounds like its still looking for the wrong engine version / build id? How did you update? Full re-download or merge?

        Sorry I'm very new to all this. Mordentral you said in the setup if I install at project level I need to create a blank c++ file "in editor" so it can package. I tried to create a blank c++ class and it requires a name. Is this what I need to create? and if so does the name matter?

          no the name wouldn't matter, however I actually don't think that is required anymore as long as the binaries are complete.

          Those instructions were from 4.12 or so.

            Hey there. Firstly thanks for making this plugin.

            I'm a bit lost though - it's preventing me from packaging my project. I believe the issue is to do with c++ compiling, which I know very little about. I installed unreal source because I wanted to make a dedicated server, and things have been a bit of a headache since then.

            The log says the following is missing...
            Could not find file 'C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.20\Engine\Plugins\AdvancedSessions\AdvancedSessions\Intermediate\Build\Win64\UE4\Development\AdvancedSessions\AdvancedSessions.precompiled'

            and yes it isn't there. What would I need to do to get past this? I do have VS2017 community installed with c++ for game dev and unreal engine addon ticked at install.

            Cheers

            Ali.

                You are loading the server local save file every time and applying it to everyone else.

                Regardless, yeah that is off topic here.

                    Thanks mordentral .

                    Works! I am having an issue where if I the plugin only seems to work if I launch the game via editor (standalone). If I package the game (dev or shipping), I don't get an overlay, name, and the create session function that works in standalone doesn't seem to work.

                    I do have a steam_appid.txt file with the contents of 480 next to the executables in binaries, but no luck.

                    Any tips? I'm sure this was working when i first installed the plugin.

                            Is there any fix? because it worked on 4.19

                              Install in the project directory, not the engine one.
