Hi all,
I am trying to send a game invitation friend message using node-steam-user.

I am using sendFriendMessage function with EChatEntryType option established as 3 (InviteGame value at https://github.com/D...hatEntryType.js)

const SteamUser = require('steam-user');
const client = new SteamUser();
client.chat.sendFriendMessage("steam64Id Here", '[lobbyinvite  appid="App Game IdHere" lobbyid="Lobby Id Here"][/lobbyinvite]', {chatEntryType: 3});

The result is that there is no invitation sent in steam chat


I supposted to fill the message parameter like that because of im getting the lobbies invitation history chat in that format. I saw all node-steam-user docs and i did not found any tutorial or explain about how to use this function with EChatEntryType as InviteGame value.


¿how can i use this function to send a game lobby invitation message to a friend?
¿What data and would be the message parameter format in the function?
Thanks in advance,

This isn't how you send a lobby invite. You need to use a separate kind of command which I don't believe is implemented in steam-user at this time.
