SteamWorks Test App ID


I’m considering adding steamworks support to my game, but before I do that I’d like to know what I will have available in terms of steamworks functionality when I use a test app ID. Right now, I’m only interested in finding and joining games – would that be possible with the test app ID?

Hi Syntaks,yes I think that you can find and join game with test app ID.

As far as i know, you can’t create new things with this test ID. For example no new achievements. But you can use the once coming with space ware.
So normaly you should be able to implement steamworks and just change the APP ID later.

Also UE4 uses wrappers for the online subsystem. That means, it doesn’t matter if you have no subsystem, steam or something else. The session function
all work the same. You won’t use much of the Steamworks API for hosting and joinen.
