Steam App ID for Demo is not working.


I am trying to release a demo before the end of the year for my upcoming local multiplayer/party game called Metal Heads.

Unfortunately, I have hit a bit of a dead end and am in need of some assistance.

I can’t seem to get Steam integration working at all unless it’s with app ID 480.

I have done the following:

I also came across this thread:

But unfortunately it wasn’t helpful as the game packages were already there.

However the only way Steam overlay will work is by using the Steam “SpaceWar” test app ID of 480.

I have an app ID for my game and have a store front so people can wishlist my game, and I also have an app ID for my demo, however when I use either app ID in the defaultengine.ini file, the Steam overlay does not appear in the compiled or standalone versions.

I am not sure what to do from here, as it seems I am stuck.
I am currently doing 10hr shifts in my day job, then coming home to work on the game for 6 hours so I can get this demo out, so to be stuck on this for 3 of the 6 hours now is driving me insane…:frowning:

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Well…turns out I was just missing the .ico file for the Steamworks page.
