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"

apk size is big

hi I am creating a blank project and when packaging in etc1 my apk size is 38 mb...

i've done what was suggested in this site : https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Android/ReducingAPKSize/index.html but i can not make it less(it was first 40 mb)

is there a way that the size may be less(around 20 mb for a blank project)?

thanks a lot

The majority of the file size is taken up by Slate, which is added by default into projects. Anywhere between 30-40mb is typical for a blank packaged project.

Have a great day,

It is not recommended to do this, but if you need to decrease your package size you can technically remove slate.

Have a look at this documentation, specifically the section on Package Black List: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Android/ReducingAPKSize/index.html#packageblacklist

When you have read and understood this, have a look at the answer by Chris Babcock on this Answerhub post :https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/70842/why-are-android-file-sizes-so-big.html This shows some of the files you need to omit to remove Slate.

Keep in mind that this is definitely not recommended, and if you need to use UMG in your project, you will be unable to do so without Slate.
