Steamworks.NET BETA
« on: September 21, 2018, 02:33:43 AM »
Hi Everyone.
Here is the first set of actions for Steamworks.NET

Warning The action package is still in beta!
It is possible that when updating that some actions might break.
Also it is possible that some actions don't work correctly
So be careful using them in released projects.

Follow the steps in the next post to setup steamworks.NET correctly, before importing the package.

If you find any bugs please post here so i can update the action.
You can also pm me if you wish to join my steam beta channel on discord.

P.s. feel free to support my work on patreon 😉

How to start using steamworks with playmaker  :

1st get the Steamworks.NET_11.0.0.unitypackage.

After importing to your project, you will need to edit some files :




Change '(AppId_t.Invalid) to : ((AppId_t)480))
if you have your own appId you can set that instead of 480

In your browser, go to your project folder..
There you should see a text file called  steam_appid.txt



Edit the file and change to 480 or your appId number
(480 is the standard test game from steam)

If you want to test steam in a build you need to copy this text file in the same directory as the .exe file



Then you need to place The SteamManager script on an object in the scene.





Note. ALWAYS! ensure that Steam is initialized by checking Steam_Is Initialized before using any Steamwork actions (do only once if you do multiple things in the same frame)

Hi.
Yes, but at the moment we just moved to our new office and there is still a lot of construction work going on so it is hard to record due to the noise.

So it might take a week or 2

Hi.
My Plan is to cover everything, but that will be a lot of work.
So i might consider a paid version or include it to my 3rd party Assets Actions
I would like to know what you guys think a bout that :)

At the moment i am making actions for BrainCloud for this asset

After that i will continue with steam.

Totally reasonable to ask for payment!
