Build preview on android not showing up like in editor
After i figured out blueprint, i went ahead and craeted a very simple game. Now im at that stage where i want to publish it to android so i can see what it looks like on my phone. However, the issue i ran into after i cooked it, is that when it showed up on my phone the screen looked black, i can see the outlines of some of the assets in the scene. and some of the HUD elements but thats it. I included a screenshot below. I ran other tests on a different scene, ligthing doesnt seem to build at all no matter what i did. I read up the android guides, said to make the lights stationary. Nothing really changed after i applied that change.
Also, how do i get rid of the two controllers on the side? The circle thumb sticks. I have my game to be able to click on things. So i dont need those there.
My last question, it takes a bit of time to make a build for the android, is there a way to instantly just play test my scene. Unity had something similar where when you hit played, it showed up the stuff on the mobile device.
For anyone else having this problem be sure to check the rendering section of the lights you have placed in the scene. It has a setting labeled "Actor Hidden in game" and by default it is checked. Meaning if the game is packaged or launched in any way the light will be set to hidden. Hope this helps

Since, i was able to figure out what was wrong. First make sure that you have a lightmass importance volume. Then it helps if your main light is set to static. All other lights needs to be set to static. Then make sure you rebuild ligthing, paths, etc before previewing.
