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"

HTML5 - Do all plugins cause build failure?

Hey Everyone,

I have been experimenting with deploying some of my games to HTML 5 to display on my website. I quickly ran into build failures each time I had a third-party plug-in enabled.

Here is the failure with Low Entry's Json and HTTP plug-ins.

A lot of the errors generated seem to be with emscripten.

I have tried this in both 4.14 and 4.13.2. Both versions have been verified to make sure nothing is missing. Any and all ideas are welcome!

Product Version: UE 4.14

I believe so. A plugin to work in HTML5, needs to be compiled using HTML5 configuration (which most plugins don't do), check plugins page to see their platform compatibility.

avatar image HaxO Dec 07 '16 at 05:22 PM

The Low Entry plugin's page says it should work on all platforms. I emailed the about the issue and they said he doesn't have any platform specific code implemented. Suggested that it was an emscripten issue.

What do you mean it needs to be compiled using HTML5 configuration? (Is this the only build that needs this done?)

INFO:root:Closure compiler (C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.13\Engine\Extras\ThirdPartyNotUE\emsdk\emscripten\1.35.0\third_party\closure-compiler\compiler.jar) does not exist, check the paths in C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.13\Engine\Interm have you investigated this?

avatar image HaxO Dec 08 '16 at 02:31 PM

I have not, I will check that one out asap!

HaxO,

Were you able to resolve the plugin issues you were originally running in to?

avatar image HaxO Dec 13 '16 at 07:02 PM

Nope, still sorting through all of these errors. Have not been able to get a successful HTML5 build yet.

avatar image HaxO Dec 13 '16 at 07:04 PM

I did track down this error, I had to manually place the 'third_party' folder from my emscripten install into the '1.35.0 folder in the UE 4.13 directory.

avatar image HaxO Dec 13 '16 at 07:24 PM

I have made it quite a ways though, getting different errors now. Here is the new log. link text

avatar image Samantha Sutton ♦♦ STAFF Dec 14 '16 at 09:40 PM

HaxO,

  • Is this happening on every new project you create?

  • Did you verify that you already installed the HTML5 options from the Launcher?

Yes, HTML5 is installed and is set to true in the supported platforms.

This does happen in a fresh project as well.

EDIT: The installation has also been verified multiple times.

avatar image Samantha Sutton ♦♦ STAFF Dec 15 '16 at 08:05 PM

When you disable all plugins, are you still having the same issue? Could you show me exactly how you're packaging your project? Are you using File > Package Project or are you working with Unreal Frontend?

Thanks!

avatar image HaxO Dec 15 '16 at 08:13 PM

I am building with the FrontEnd, if I disable all plugins it builds just fine. The problem is I need access to the http and json tools provided by LowEntrys plugins. I have tried accessing the built in http and json tools and making them exposed to blueprint. Unfortunately I am not very experienced with C++ and couldn't get the functionality I needed out of them.

I apologize for misunderstanding previously. When there is an error with a plugin, you need to speak with the creator of the plugin directly for assistance. It's possible that it's not meant to work for HTML5.

I did verify that this is causing the same error as you stated previously.

Since you're not experienced with C++, I would suggest reviewing the C++ section in the forums, and see if anyone is able to guide you in making those changes you need for your project.

Let us know if we can be of any additional assistance, thanks!

Yea, I know. I have been in contact with him over the past couple of weeks while trying to sort through all of this. We are trying to find where the problem is actually occurring. Trying to tackle this from all sides and find a solution.

avatar image Samantha Sutton ♦♦ STAFF Dec 16 '16 at 05:16 PM

After the creator investigates the issue and it turns out to be due to UE4 specifically, then those details need to be brought to our attention. However, when it's still up in the air whether or not it's specifically the plugin or not, the creator does need to try and resolve the issue you're facing.

I hope that helps.
