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"

Handheld AR Template - iOS deployment from Win10

I can deploy a fresh third person template or any other just fine on my iPhone X, but when I want to try the Handheld AR Template that came with the 4.19 update, I start getting an error message "Remote compiling requires a server name. Please specify one in the Remote Server Name settings field." Why? None of the other project templates require me to have a Mac to build for iOS.

My provisions and certificates are all in order and I'm troubleshooting on completely fresh BP projects, created via the Launcher.

Product Version: UE 4.19

Hello Niuva,

Unfortunately at this time packaging for ARkit requires "XCode 9 Beta 3 or 4" which means a Mac is required

I'm completely confused.

According to this page (https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Platforms/iOS/GettingStarted):

Currently, if you are using the launcher version of Unreal Engine, you can only deploy from Windows to iOS for Blueprints-based projects.

You're answer to this completely negates that note in regards to using the Handheld AR Template

So what is one supposed to do if you want to launch the Handheld AR Template (Blueprints-only) unreal project on iOS? I'm using UE4 version 4.20 (the launcher version) and deploying on both Mac and my Windows 10 machine has failed.

Should I make a separate thread?

Hey Mike, I had a working ARKIT project using UE4.19 yesterday. Tried to install the new UE4.20 and check out the new ARKIT 2.0 and that`s where everything went wrong now I can`t run anything neither on 4.19 nor on 4.20 with working certificates. I cant get rid of the remote server error. My project is blueprint only no 3rd party plugins and I even put this script in the DefaultEngine.ini under that section

[/Script/IOSRuntimeSettings.IOSRuntimeSettings] bUseRSync=False

this is suppose to stop the Remote server check and it is still not working.
