[Docs] - Something missing from Android Quickstart

This is missing, it can be a huge headache for someone to figure out what needs to be installed:

I am talking about this https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Android/GettingStarted/1/index.html,
specifically “If you already have the Android SDK installed, but your environment variables have been lost, you can skip all of this and simply point the editor to the install locations using the Edit Menu -> Project Settings -> Android SDK properties in the Editor.”.

If you have the android SDK with eclipse/android studio (IntelliJ) already installed (like I do, for example), docs instruct you to just set up variables inside unreal: skd-ndk-ant-jdk-etc. Docs need to include that you must also manually (not from SDK Manager - you cant do that from there) download the ANT and NDK manually (if you have the SDK installed already).

NDK homepage: https://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/ndk/index.html
ANT homepage: http://ant.apache.org/

This made me lose ~2hours trying to figure what to do.

Hi Zarkopafilis,

Maybe introduce this ref here in quickstart guide : https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Android/Reference/index.html.

Will edit.

Howdy Zarkopafilis,

Thanks for Documentation feedback. I have added UEDOC-2354 into Jira so that this issue can be addressed and fixed. At this time I am unsure as to when this will be resolved, but I will be sure to keep you informed when progress on this is made.

Thanks again and have a great day!

Thank you as well Sean Gribbin. Do I need to edit the documentation myself or will EPIC do it for me?
