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"

How do I install a Daydream app for Android?

Google mentions that "The Android N Preview SDK" is required for a Daydream app, which should use an SDK API later than Android SDK API 23, but Epic claims that this is not possible here and here, even though Daydream support is supposed to be available in UE 4.12.

Should we be still be using android-21 to build UE Daydream apps for Android N Preview, or does the N requirement only hold for Google's VR SDK? (Google also seems to think this will only work for a Nexus 6P. True for Unreal as well?)

I've been trying for about a week setting up a Daydream app, but I don't know which Android APIs I should be starting with.

Product Version: UE 4.12

I'd like an answer to this too please :). It seems to work under 21 but it's hard to know what performance and other improvements might be left on the table as we try and spec out art budgets.

Hey, I might be a little late to this thread but hopefully this can help others looking for the same thing.

I've made a few videos detailing all the steps required and then a small debug and things to check video if the build still doesn't work. Check out the playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLWV866RDvo&list=PLwmGmCVti_dByi--a1JVV7mY4vLPXkA0x

Hope that helps.
