I can’t get custom build for android with godot engine. The project gives the following error on the gradle screen. It also fails when I build with godot engine scons. Please help me.

My editor settings:

My export settings

Custom build error

how does the build.gradle looks like? what modules are you using?

I use the admob module but it gives the same error in an empty project

Try setting a new project without any modules installed, then check if it gives you the same error, and also, can you link the module’s github?

The github page of the admob module I use: GitHub - kloder-games/godot-admob: Module Admob for Godot engine

It gives the same error when I create a new project by using no modules.
My empty project android module page:

if it gives you the same error when you run an empty project it means something in the setup is wrong, try looking at the docs
besides, you were trying to build a module instead of a plugin(godot 3.2+ uses real time build and a plugin system), you can find his port here:
GitHub - Shin-NiL/Godot-Android-Admob-Plugin: Android AdMob plugin for Godot Game Engine 3.2 or higher

because of your game files have non-english letters. I was also set my game files’s name with japan and turkish letters, while installing to android it was giving license error then I change just file names. değerimi bil :slight_smile:

I can custom build on linux operating system with the same files. But I can’t do it on windows :slight_smile: WTF? Yinede teşekkürler :slight_smile:

I’m getting the same error. But there are no Turkish “character” and “folder” names in the project. There is a translation file csv. Could it be due to this file?
