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"

Build for Android fails with varying errors

I can't seem to get Unreal Engine to build for Android. This works just fine in Android Studio, Unity and other engines, but Unreal Engine seems to be incapable of finding the Android SDK for an unknown reason. My Android SDK installation has every single SDK iteration that can be built for and the NDK does too. Paths are set correctly too so I don't know why UE is having issues with it (Android SDK points at SDK, Android NDK points to SDK/ndk-bundle, ANT points at ANT-1.10.1, JDK points at jdk-1.8.0_141). Edit: I have already tried Nvidia Codeworks, that is the one where the same errors happen.

One of the following errors will happen:

  1. AutomationTool can't find the proper API even though it is installed, log

  2. AutomationTool uses an outdated android.bat command that is not supported anymore, log

Product Version: UE 4.17 Preview

Did not help. Codeworks shows the first issue, while the native Android SDK (which Unreal should support) shows the 2nd one.
