Problems with steam online subsystem and advanced sessions plugin

Hey there,

I’ve been having an incredibly hard time getting my online play to work well in my project. I have my build on steam with the app id txt file and the steam overlay works fine. In fact at first I was able to send invites/receive invites through steam and join sessions together. I was just having problems with server travel. After fixing server travel by enabling seamless travel I noticed I couldn’t create sessions anymore. Now every time I try to create a session while my steam api is connected. I get [FONT=Comic Sans MS]Warning: STEAM: Cannot create session ‘GameSession’: session already exists. Also another thing is my friend interface is no longer valid. When I call Online::GetFriendInterface() it comes back invalid. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing these problems? I am just about at my wits end. I have tried everything from moving my project to a clean project and upgrading to 4.25 from 4.24. Also I upgraded from steam 146 to 147 to 150. No luck at all anywhere.

EDIT: Turns out im able to connect to Online::GetFriendInterface() but i haven’t been successful using any of the functions like Read or Get friends list.

Thanks!
Brian
