Savegame not working on Android

I am unable to save game on android. “Save Game to Slot” Blueprint Node works fine in the UE4 Editor but returns false when packaged and installed on the android device.

Here are the details:


Android Minimum SDK: 19

Android Target SDK: 30

Install Location: Internal Only

Package Game Data inside .apk? - Checked

Use ExternalFilesDir for UE4Game files - Checked

Packaged Development Build with Project Launcher

Tried both - manually copied apk to device and installed/used bat file to install directly from pc

Android Device: Xiamoi Redmi Note 8 Pro

OS: MIUI 12.5.3

Android Version 11

You can also create a fresh project and package it with these settings. You’ll see that the “Save Game to Slot” works in editor but fails on Android.
