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"

ERROR: Game target not found. When building for android.

I've been trying to fix this all day and I've had no joy.

Recently I accidently added a c++ class to my blueprint project and ever since I've been unable to package the project for android.

This is the error the logs give me.

Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening?

Try removing the C++ class from your project then convert it back to blueprint only:

Now I'm having another problem with packaging.

It's saying it can't make an APK without the compiled .so

Hey try closing the project and deleting the following 3 subfolders from within your projects folder:

Binaries Intermediate Saved

then try building again. If the error is still there then usually there is another reason further up the logs...

I got it working now thanks!

You were right I just restarted and redid what it said in the link and it works now so I must have missed something first time round.

Thanks again!

I ran into something like this. It happened when I used one project as a basis for another and renamed things. In my case, I accidentally omitted the dot in "Source/[ProjectName].Target.cs" between the name of my project and "Target". Very hard to know what was wrong from the error, but afterwards it compiled like normal. I suspect its something similar - something in one of the build files.

It was tricky to see in my case, since there are two files: "Source/[ProjectName].Target.cs" and "Source/[ProjectName]Editor.Target.cs". Since the editor one was fine, I didn't run into this problem until packaging. In my case this was all on Windows, so not necessarily related to the platform I think.
