How to Upload any Unreal Application for Pixel Streaming

Preparing to execute instructions

Before starting the first step, make sure you have:

  • A project ready to upload;

  1. To complete this guide, your working environment must meet all the requirements above. If you have not completed any of the points, follow the link to the appropriate instruction and complete it first.

Step 1. Create Project Archive

Make sure you have the Pixel Streaming plugin enabled, and export your App for Windows.

1.1 In the Root folder, that is, in the folder where the application executable file is located (file with the .exe extension), select all files and folders (image 1).

Please note, if you upload a project without archiving it first then the upload will fail (image 2).

1.2 Right-click on the selected files to bring up the context menu. In the context menu, select "Send to"->” Compressed (zipped) folder” (image 3).

You can use any archive creation software. Supported archive formats: RAR, ZIP, 7z.

Step 3. Create Config

You don't have to create a new config for every new application. If you already have a Config that suits your new application just select it.

3.1 When the application is uploaded, go back to the Control Panel tab, and click the Add button in a CONFIG section (image 13). In the opened window enter any name for your new Config, then click the Ok button (image 14).

Please note, spaces are not allowed in the config name.

If invalid characters are entered in the name of your config, you will see an error when you try to run the application (image 15). Delete this config (image 16) and create a new one with the correct name.
