    Hi, I've been using this and it's amazing, however I can't seem to get it functioning properly outside of the editor. It packages properly and I can run it, as well as the steam overlay being accessible in the game but I cannot get hosting & joining to work properly, despite functioning 100% perfectly within the editor as I say.

    I did set up unreal with steamworks SDK 139 instead of 132 as places say I should, but I've tried both 132 and 142 (the latest) but it doesn't build with either despite me having set up as far as I know everything necessary.

    I can create a LAN session, and have it found on another local machine but I am unable to join, otherwise it pretends other sessions do not exist (interestingly I can host an online server fine, but it is not visible to others like it is in the editor). I figure this is likely a Steamworks issue as opposed to an Advanced Sessions issue if it works in the editor but not in a packaged build, but I thought it would be worth reaching out here first.

    Also worth noting in my second image, there are no errors displayed so it is presumably not failing to look for servers, it is just failing to find them.

    Thanks.

        4.20 has some minor bugs on linux -

        Code:
        In file included from /media/chozabu/EmpEn/Unreal/UnrealEngine/Engine/Plugins/SteamSessions/AdvancedSessions/Intermediate/Build/Linux/B4D820EA/UE4Editor/Development/AdvancedSessions/Module.AdvancedSessions.cpp:3:
        /media/chozabu/EmpEn/Unreal/UnrealEngine/Engine/Plugins/SteamSessions/AdvancedSessions/Source/AdvancedSessions/Private/AdvancedFriendsGameInstance.cpp:4:10: fatal error: 'Gameframework/PlayerController.h' file not found
        just a case sensitivity issue I think - Gameframework should be GameFramework, in the file mentioned above and a header file. After fix it compiled happily

          thanks for the heads up, correct it.

He gets the steam invitation on Steam but in my game instance the two event does not get called. Neither of them prints anything :S. Any idea what could cause it?

                  I'm getting that Advance Sessions build error. It was mentioned to throw advance sessions directly into the project folder post 4.20. I went and put Advance Sessions in my project plugin folder and it doesn't register. Can I ask is there a specific area it goes into?

                      Ok maybe my error is different. I slapped advance sessions in what I believe is my project folder as it's where my game contect etc is stored in the Plugin section, however it will not even register. So then I went and installed it back in my 4.20 folder plugin where it does. Here is the main error followed by one more 3 more:

                      ERROR: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file 'C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.20\Engine\Plugins\AdvancedSessionsPlugin-4-20\AdvancedSessions\AdvancedSessions\Intermediate\Build\Win64\UE4\Shipping\AdvancedSessions\AdvancedSessions.precompiled'.

                      I want to nail the advance sessions issue. If any other ones persist then I'll tackle them. Thanks for any help in advance

                        You still have the copy in the engine directory, it won't be looking for the .precompiled file in the project level directory.

                          Did you mean "have too". Sorry I feel like I'm being annoying and that I'm not following. Here are some images of where I have Advance Sessions built along with an error. You should be able to open the images to see the directory path. Again thank you. https://imgur.com/a/mpgpyUI

                            for me this dose not work i keep getting this error message Binaries for the 'AdvancedSessions' plugin are missing or incompatible with the current engine version.




                            Would you like to disable it? You will no longer be able to open assets that were created with it.

                            can someone help this is on mac by the way

                              No? I mean that you have a copy of the plugin in the engine directory, that is where it is looking for it.

                              If you don't actually have one there then clean the intermediate folders.

                                Ok I guess what I am failing to understand is what you mean by "Project Directory". To me that means I install it in the project I am working on plugin folder (which does not dectect the advance sessions plugins when I go to plugins). Maybe I need an example if that's not it. I can assure you it's completely wiped from 4.20. Which advance sessions works fine in I just can't do a build. I attached right where I am putting it.
