Fix: 4.27 "STEAM: Failed to Initialize game server with Steam!"

In Unreal 4.27, the following setting is necessary to use the Steam OSS to Host lobbies:

SessionSettings.bUseLobbiesIfAvailable = true;

Otherwise you get quoted error above.

Edit: Oh hey it’s covered in the next lecture anyway.

Yes, this was identified by another student. Its specific to 4.27 but works fine with older versions I believe.

Thanks for sharing.

Where can that setting be found?

It’s a line of code you have to add with the rest of them.

I see. It’s one of the FOnlineSessionSettings’ members within UPuzzlePlatformsGameInstance::CreateSession() .
