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"

Latest Android SDK is not supported

UE 4 relies on tools/android tool from Android SDK. It has been deprecated in the latest version of SDK (25) and always outputs this:

The android command is no longer available.

For manual SDK and AVD management, please use Android Studio.

For command-line tools, use tools/bin/sdkmanager and tools/bin/avdmanager

Because of this, UE4 Android build always fails, if you use the latest SDK version.

To reproduce this, you can install the latest SDK with Android Studio (https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html), setup SDK and NDK path in your UE4 configuration, and package empty C++ project for Android.

Product Version: UE 4.15

Thank you, Samantha. Yes, I figured it out, just added the post to ensure that you are aware of the issue and have support of the latest SDK in the backlog.

I've already upgrade the sdk and there's no tools/android tool there. How should I down grade the sdk?
