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"

Unreal and Android v26 - Icon issue on Pixel XL

Recently I got a warning on google play deploy saying I'd need to update to v26 soon.

After updating my App icon have circles around them on my Pixel XL. This apparently is because I don't have "adaptive icons".

How can I fix this?

Product Version: UE 4.19

Here's how I was able to fix this:

  1. Create an icon set using Android Studio's icon tool (documentation)

  2. Copy the icon set to the project's "Build/Android/res" folder. The icon set should look like a set of folders with names like "mipmap-hdpi," "mipmap-xhdpi" etc.

  3. Add the line: android:roundIcon="@mipmap/[image_name]" to the Extra Tags for <application> node array in ProjectSettings -> Android -> Advanced APK Packaging. [image_name] should be the name you used when making the icon set with Android Studio (mine defaulted to ic_launcher_round).

  4. Package the project. The addition to the android manifest should allow the packaged apk to use the adaptive icons placed in the build folder.

Looks like this isn't supported in NDK 24 which is the one shipped with 4.20 - how did you update?

I have Android Studio with later SDKs installed but that doesn't seem to help.

Hi,if I package my project with 4.21,which version of NDK should I use?

Think you can use 24.

The above process works for me though it doesn't use the _round icon on my pixel, it's using the normal icon (but rounding it). I also found the icon extremely pixelated at the suggest 108 resolution, 512 looked sharp, trying at 256 now.
