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"

Pixelstreaming | Unable to package for win 64

Unable to package third person template for Windows 64bit w/ pixel streaming plugin enabled.

Log Error:

 ERROR: Expecting to find a type to be declared in a module rules named 'PixelStreaming' in PixelstreamingModuleRules, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null.  This type must derive from the 'ModuleRules' type defined by Unreal Build Tool.

The plugin manager mounted the pixelstreaming plugin at the start of the build so i'm not sure what's happening. I've tried now on two separate machines with the same results.

Using the documentation provided by Epic here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Platforms/PixelStreaming/PixelStreamingIntro

Product Version: UE 4.21

Deleted the project and started from scratch. This time however I created the project on the same drive as where the base engine lives instead of on my secondary drive. Followed the steps listed in the link from my original post and was able to package to win 64 without issue.

Happening to me too... I even reinstalled the engine 4.21 and still getting this error:

UATHelper: Packaging (Windows (64-bit)): ERROR: Plugin 'PixelStreaming' (referenced via PixelStreaming.uproject) does not contain the 'PixelStreaming' module, but lists it in 'C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.21\Engine\Plugins\Experimental\PixelStreaming\PixelStreaming.uplugin'.

I checked PixelStreaming.uplugin and noticed it says "Installed" : false...

{ "FileVersion" : 3, "Version" : 0.1, "VersionName" : "0.1", "FriendlyName" : "Pixel Streaming", "Description" : "Support for pixel streaming from UE4", "Category" : "Graphics", "CreatedBy" : "Epic Games, Inc.", "CreatedByURL" : "http://epicgames.com", "DocsURL" : "", "MarketplaceURL" : "", "SupportURL" : "", "EnabledByDefault" : false, "CanContainContent" : true, "IsBetaVersion" : true, "Installed" : false, "Modules" : [ { "Name" : "PixelStreaming", "Type" : "Runtime", "LoadingPhase" : "PostEngineInit", "WhitelistPlatforms" : [ "Win64" ] } ] }

Please help!

I'm trying to test PixelStreaming too and I got that error, my project had the same name as the plugin, so I created a new project with a different name.
