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"

Android Tarketsdk 26 and Google VR issue

Compiling a build supporting Google VR Cardboard or Daydream, with Target SDK 26, as per new Google requirements for distributions, produces unusable builds, that run on black screen. (builds compiled in shipping mode)

All the same settings, just putting Targetsdk 25 or 24, in the Android settings field, produces working builds.

Putting targetsdk to 26, and disabling any VR plugin. Produces working builds.

So, there is something specific related to TargetSDK 26 and Google VR enabled, issue in working togheter.

I reported this a while ago to Google here: https://github.com/googlevr-unreal/UnrealEngine/issues/35 and they fixed it. You need to use their branch of the Unreal engine though for the fix: https://github.com/googlevr-unreal/UnrealEngine

Unfortunately it still has another blocking bug involving the back button: https://github.com/googlevr-unreal/UnrealEngine/issues/38

Would be cool to get some more attention on it over there as that is the quickest way to getting a fix (Epic includes their updated plugin only on future versions of the engine)

The links direct to missing pages.

You need to connect your Epic account to github as per: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/ue4-on-github

thanks, i am following the thread! And yes, i confirm the back button issue, upon the targetsdk26 workaround.

Also must be said that the targetsdk26 issue, affects some devices, and some not.
