A plugin which provides complete Steamworks integration for both C++ and BP.

  • Supported Platforms
  • Supported Engine Versions
    4.16 - 4.17

Description


With UWorks, developers can use almost the entire functionality provided by the Steam SDK, in ways which weren't possible in BPs and were complicated in C++. Its most important uses are:

- It converts every Steam data type into UE4 types (i.e. structs to USTRUCTS);

- It exposes almost every Steam function to BP;

- It simplifies the entire asynchronous (latent) workflow provided by Steam by providing 3 different workflows using UE4 delegates and converted data types.

Developers are expected to follow the Steam documentation and reach out to me and/or other buyers, for any additional information and/or help, via the Discord server linked below.

Important/Additional Notes:

- The functions contain the entire API documentation as comments. The "Technical Details!" screenshot will be updated soon.

- Server functionality in binary versions of the engine require copy-pasting the Steamworks binaries from a source engine.

- Due to how Steam works internally, this plugin cannot be tested with Play-In-Editor. Instead, developers must run standalone instances of their projects.

- This is not intended to be used in conjunction with OnlineSubsystemSteam due to various problems with OSSteam.
