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"

Adding Code to Project, No longer able to Package for iOS

I'm running 4.4 - I added code to my project this morning (visual studio) and now I'm unable to build to my target platform (iOS.) The message displayed is:

Sorry, launching on a device is currently not supported for code-based iOS projects. This feature will be available in a future release.

Building for device is kind of a priority today.

Updated to 4.4.1 and this is still not working.

Checked out from perforce on my Mac and I'm able to get a build done by deleting the Xcode project file. The build technically fails but the binary shows up in the ~/Project/Binaries directory and can be manually copied from there into TestFlight. Long day...

Hey Thomas,

I'm just popping in on this old issue to check - are you still having trouble with this?

Howdy Thomas,

As the initial error that you received has stated, launching a code based project to an iOS device is not currently supported for Windows with the binary editor. We are still working to fully optimize deployment feature that will support all projects and not just those projects that are Blueprint based. Here is the Documentation on Developing projects for iOS devices:https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/iOS/GettingStarted/index.html. This is clearly stated I the top yellow box on this Doc page.

I am a bit unsure as to what you are exactly doing in the last comment that you have provided. Would be able to provide more detail so that I would be able to investigate what you are currently seeing?

Is it correct that you are using the binary release of the editor from the launcher?

Thanks and have a great day!

Building on the Mac is fine except that I get the error:

link text

Removing the Xcode project file and packaging again fails to copy the ipa to my target folder but the build does finish.

Hi Thomas,

What files did you pull over to the Mac for building? That error almost looks like UBT can't find the project Game.Target.cs file which should live in Game/Source and so it doesn't generate the proper scheme (and is an error we should be checking for, but I don't think we are). Let me know if you have that file in the specified location and we can go from there on what might be next if it is there.

./Source/RepublicSniper.Target.cs is there.
