    I am begginer in Qt\V-play and mobile development.

    Tell me please, what android sdk, sdk build-tools and ndk versions and extra settings in Qt Creator is needed for the latest V-play?

    I can create new project in Android Studio (latest version) then deploy it on my Android device whith no problem, but when I create new V-play App project and then try to deploy it I get a build error “No toolchains found in the NDK toolchains folder for ABI with prefix: mips64el-linux-android”.

    With the same configuration (API 26, SDK 26.1.1, NDK 10-16) I can open and deploy some V-play demo apps (e.g. Component Showcase, PropertyCross, Weather) but can’t deploy other demo apps (e.g. Multi-Scene-Multi-Level, Flappy Bird, BalloonPop) and any new project.

    I tried SDK 26\25, NDK 10\12\14\16 and get the same result.








    I got the same error..

    this issue stems from some Android tooling changes of recent versions:

    The NDK removed support for mips abi. But earlier versions of the android gradle plugin still check for the existence of the mips toolchain.
    see here for more info.

    Many demos and V-Play projects come with a certain android/build.gradle configuration. You can find the build.gradle file in the android folder of your V-Play project. As some projects do not have a specific build.gradle configuration, the latest gradle plugin is used, so these projects work without issues.

    We did not yet update all demos and build.gradle settings for this change. Also, certain V-Play Plugin library dependencies require to still use an earlier gradle version for compatibility reasons.

    As a workaround, you can manually add the missing toolchains to your Android NDK. You can find a guide here:
