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"

[4.7.6] No devices found for HTML5

Hello everyone.

I'm new to UE4 (less than a week actually), and right now, I'm "just" trying to launch the FPS Template with HTML5. I followed the tutorial here for the Launcher Version (v4.7.6).

So here is my first question :
I saw a lot of old topic which indicate that I need to use the Git version to make it work. Is it still true ?

If the answer is yes, I guess you can stop reading. If not, here is my problem :

I installed Emscripten, Python2.7, Chromium 64bits and setup the HTML5Engine.ini, but no devices are found : alt text

Did I miss something ? Maybe I missed something simple due to the fact that I never used UE4 before.

Thanks for your time.

Edit : Here is what is displayed in the Device Manager : alt text

Hey Khaz42,

After you installed what's needed for HTML5, did you restart your computer? Also, have you gone into the Device Manager settings, which is in the drop-down for Launch? You should be able to claim your HTML5 device, which would be FireFox, FireFox Nightly and of course, Google Chrome.

Looking forward to hearing back from you, thanks! :)

Yes i restarted my computer, and I didn't mention it in my original post but when I open the device manager, there is no HTML5 devices and I can't add one. I update my original post with a screenshot of the device manager. Thanks

Hey Khaz42,

Have you tried downloading FireFox Nightly? I see that you have Google Chrome in there, currently Google Chrome is having issues with HTML5 and will not launch on. However, regular FireFox should show up for you, so should FireFox Nightly.

Below is my whole HTML5Engine.ini file:

 ; These following settings have moved to the User inis and can be set from the editor
 ; These old value are left as reference until all old code paths are removed
 ;Firefox Nightly (64 bit)="C:/Program Files/Nightly/firefox.exe"
 ;Firefox Nightly (32 bit)="C:/Program Files (x86)/Nightly/firefox.exe"
 ;Firefox (32 bit)="C:/Program Files (x86)/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe"
 ;Firefox Aurora  (32 bit)="C:/Program Files (x86)/Aurora/firefox.exe"
 ;Chrome="C:/Program Files (x86)/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe"
 ;all browsers on mac are 64 bit, 64 bit browsers can allocate more than 512MB of memory to around 1.5 GB. 
 ;Firefox (Aurora)="/Applications/FirefoxAurora.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin"

Let me know if this works for you, once you've updated yours. :)

Now I feel stupid, the problem was that I had "\" instead of "/" because I copy/pasted the path from the file explorer of Windows...
Anyway it's working now, thanks :)
