Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hi BKremnev, I'm gathering from your file path that you're using the GitHub source. If so, you will need to build the UE4Game Android binaries before you can package blueprint projects. To do this, open your UE4 solution in Visual Studio, then build the UE4 target for Development Android. You should be able to package once you've done that.

would this be it ? Or it has to be Development Android in the same dropdown. Don't really want to build something wrong and then look for a fix :(

Howdy THX2000,

When you package a project that you are working on, it will ask you the folder destination in which you plan on placing the .bat file. You should be able to find the .bat file in that location from your Windows Explorer. Here is a bit of Documentation that may help you with that process if you are planning on placing your project on an Android Device: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Android/GettingStarted/

Also, here is the Documentation page for iOS Game Development: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/iOS/index.html

These pages contain all information on how you could package, deploy and launch your project on your mobile device.

Over the past builds of UE4, we have been striving to make mobile packaging and deployment a key feature in UE4, and we continue to work hard to improve this feature.

Please be sure to let me know if you need any further assistance with your issue.

Thanks and have a great day!
