Installation

Before proceeding, review the Requirements page and make sure the appropriate versions of the Unreal Engine, Unreal Wwise plug-in, and Wwise are used.

This UE4 integration package contains files related to the Wwise plug-in only; it does not contain the entire Unreal Engine source code, nor the Wwise SDK.

Installation Procedure

NOTE: There are two ways of installing the Unreal Wwise plug-in: either as an engine plug-in or as an installed plug-in - not both.
For more information on the difference between engine and installed plug-ins, please refer to the Unreal Engine Wiki.

  1. Copy the "Wwise" UE4 Integration folder to the "Plugins" folder. To install the UnrealEngine4 Wwise plug-in as an:
    • Engine plug-in, copy the "Wwise" UE4 Integration folder to …/<UE4 installation directory>/Engine/Plugins.
    • Installed plug-in, copy the "Wwise" UE4 Integration folder to …/<UE4 project directory>/Plugins.
  2. Since the Wwise UE4 integration may need to be rebuilt on the fly by the Unreal Editor during the packaging process, several folders from the Wwise SDK installation folder must be copied into the "Wwise" plug-in folder hierarchy. The following folders are required:
  • Source: C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624\SDK\include\*.*
  • Destination: .../Plugins/Wwise/ThirdParty/include
  • Source: C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624\SDK\samples\SoundEngine\*.*
  • Destination: .../Plugins/Wwise/ThirdParty/samples/SoundEngine
  • Source: C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624\SDK\Win32_*\*.*
  • Destination: .../Plugins/Wwise/ThirdParty/Win32_*
  • Source: C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624\SDK\x64_*\*.*
  • Destination: .../Plugins/Wwise/ThirdParty/x64_*
  • Source: C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624\SDK\Mac\*.*
  • Destination: .../Plugins/Wwise/ThirdParty/Mac

For Android, iOS, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the libraries must also be copied:

  • Source: C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise v2015.1.9 build 5624\SDK\<Your Platform>\*.*
  • Destination: .../Plugins/Wwise/ThirdParty/<Your Platform>
