I received my Gear VR and s6 a couple of days ago, and I was pleased to have a packaged, playable project running within less than two hours (most of which were spent installing requisites).
Cudos to Epic!
I’ve since encountered two issues which decrease my workflow significantly (which is completely in blueprints).
Packaging has never been a problem, but installing on phone is. I usually have to revoke the PC authorization, make sure I set the usb setting to PTP, enable usb debugging, delete the old package files manually, and then install the .apk. This only occurs after I’ve disconnected the phone from the PC. As long as it stays tethered, it works just fine.
Is it common to have authorization issues when packaging for android or is it related to the gearvr platform, or perhaps my project set up?
I use custom object types and line traces for UI actors and it works fine in the project but it doesn’t respond once packaged and running (everything works well in the project). I could use some input on whether Object line traces or Channel line traces is the best way to go for this, since there seems to be an issue with object channels. It works for checking against a capsule collision that I have on my enemies, but when it’s checking against the geometry collision of a destructible sphere, it returns null. I’ve tried using the standard ones (WorldDynamic/Destructible), but result seems to be the same (no hit).
How do you debug these things when they’re only occurring on the phone and not in the project? Are there known parts of the blueprint functionality that doesn’t run on android?
I thank everyone on this forum for my progress! Unreal is the most creative tool I have ever worked with, and it made me believe in math as a skill worth knowing.
