I dont know if its just me but I think there is alot of confusion around this topic, I can tell you my experience and please correct me and clarify this if you can.
Starting with “Shooter Game” example from Unreal, I downloaded this project about 4 months ago and was able to play it with my friend connecting through steam.
I then purchased Allars “Generic Shooter” which did claim to be set up for steam connecting but did not work, however I did manage to connect via steam after taking “Shooter Game” as an example and correcting Allars DefaultEngine.ini
For a while I gave up on UE4 and came back to it in the last few weeks and have not been able to connect over steam since.
I know that you need to have an approved app with steam but it was my understanding for the purpose of testing, one could use the “SpaceWar” app id.
While I do get “Myfriend” or “Me” is playing spacewar I am unable to connect a game using any of the games mentioned already.
- What I would like is if someone can make this clear, what is the deal with steam connecting, can it still be done, am i missing something.
- What I would love is if someone could take this topic back to the start and maybe go through it step by step, not just for me but for the community.
I have seen this video and have had no success with it and if you read the comments, the results from others seems unclear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RlYegIkN0Y
So there we have it…
Anyone able to clarify this please get stuck in
Thank you Very Much!
