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"

Can't debug apk using android studio.

My team moved 4.20 recently and I tried to debug android APK following this link ; https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Platforms/Mobile/Android/AndroidDebugging

When I start to debug, game installed and starts but displays UE4 logo and "... resources could not be found" error string.

I explored \Intermediate\Android\APK\gradle\app\build\intermediates\instant-run-apk{my game}.apk and found in apk, res folder missing and resources.arsc size differs from normal built apk.

Anyone has exeprience like this?

Product Version: UE 4.20

Are you able to install and run the app from the commandline? So far my approach has been build and install the apk using the provided batch file. Then I open the gradle project and can debug.

Of course I'm reading your post because I'm having issues - currently finding that the second time I build the package with a code update I get a "can't mix gradle and java" error from Android Studio and no debug option.
