    How can I hide my session from search once in game? (So no one else can join it)

    How can I keep a session from showing up in search results after we have server traveled from the lobby to the game mode? I don't see any session nodes that say "stop advertising session" or something. The docs don't elaborate beyond Create/Find/Join/Destroy. My game mode is dependent on lives remaining so I can't have anyone join a game in progress.

    Basically I need to disable join in progress once we get to the game mode without destroying the session. Anything in BP?

      To what end? You could set max players to 1 or whatnot. But what's the point of advertising it if you want to hide it after joining?

      Don't shy away from bugs in your game. Don't play it as intended. Break your game so you can fix it!

        I want my lobby to be searchable like it is now. A session is created and you can join. But then once everyone is ready we servertravel to a map that has the actual multiplayer game mode. As of now anyone can still join the session while the game is in progress. That breaks the game mode as everyone starts with three lives so anyone dropping in late has an unfair advantage. So how, once the server travels to the new map and mode, can i disallow anyone to join in progress? Destroying the session obviously doesn't work.

          You can't do that with the current Blueprint nodes but you can disconnect the pleyer when it joins the session. There is a Blueprint node in the game mode called "PostLogin" wuich you can use for this.
