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"

[Closed] APK grows in 4.9 and hwo to get rid of VR plugins?

My projects has grown about 3MB from 4.8.3 to 4.9.0 and after disabling all unnecessary plugins the size keeps the same.

Noticed a libvrapi.so inside the APK file in LIB folder that I believe my project doesn't need it. How I can get rid of it? Disabling the VR pugings don't do nothing, the file with about 1MB are still there.

My cotent assets file also grow, while I haven't made any change to my game content after migrating. There is any possibility that some engine content has jumped in my project after the upgrade?

Kind regards, piX

I have found this:

The plugs dialog is accessed from the Edit menu. You will need to have a code project for changes to take effect since this will need to compile a new library without the code; enabled plugins are compiled into the same .so on Android and iOS. If you only have a content-only project (Blueprints and no C++), you can just add an empty class to make it a code project. https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?77470-Staying-under-the-50-MB-limit&p=339596&viewfull=1#post339596

Trying it, installed VS 2013 community, added a new C++ class to my project, without adding any code. Package it again and now the Build fails.
