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"

You need to go into the Packaging Settings window (found in the Packaging menu) and select the Distribution checkbox. This will make the .apk be signed with your own key/certificate.

Further, you will need to create a key to sign the .apk, and give some information to our build tools with a file called SigningConfig.xml. This file exists in the installed Engine directory (Engine/Build/Android/Java). If you edit this file, it will apply to all your projects. However, you can copy this file to your project's Build/Android directory (no Java directory), and then it will be used for just that project. Directions for how to generate the key and fill out the file are found in the file itself.

I apologize this wasn't in the documentation, we will add it shortly :)

Let us know how this works out for you. We haven't yet put an app on the store, so we haven't tested a .obb file downloaded from the store (and we also don't have support yet to download the .obb if it's missing, which is something that is needed for full .obb support).

Was this ever added to documentation? I can't find it.

I've added a tutorial for this in the Unreal Wiki here:

Bostrot, would you mind elaborating a bit more? Are you asking whether you need an additional license from us to ship on Android? If that is your question the answer is that Android (among many other things) is included in our license.

No I think I don't mean that. I mean that if I package my project for Android and try to upload it on the App Store as Alpha Version Google says that this file is not certificated. Do I have to sign something? Is there a big step for step tutorial for Unreal Engine Android packing?

Oh, sorry, now I understand. Would you mind posting the detailed error message here?

When UE4 creates a .apk file when distribution checked, is this solely for Google play distribution or can it also be used for other distribution methods like Amazon and email sending?
