How do I restore the "Generate SoundBanks" item in the "Build options" menu in UE4?

Hello Audiokinetic,

The "Generate SoundBanks" item recently disappeared from the "Build options" menu in my UE4 editor. Do you know what I could do to restore it?

I am using UE v4.5.1 and Wwise v2014.1 Build 5158. Thanks.

Never mind, I fixed the issue.

It seems that the integration code for Wwise v2014 with UE4.5 has the following bug:

In "UE4\Engine\Source\Editor\UnrealEd\Private\Editor.cpp" line 514, the "AudiokineticTools" module is loaded by the "UEditorEngine::Init" function.

In "UE4\Engine\Source\Editor\UnrealEd\Private\Editor.cpp" line 547, the "LevelEditor" module is loaded by the "UEditorEngine::Init" function.

In "UE4\Engine\Source\Developer\AudiokineticTools\Private\AudiokineticToolsModule.cpp" line 36, the "LevelEditor" module is required to have been loaded to add the "Generate SoundBanks" item by the "FAudiokineticToolsModule::StartupModule" function.

However, the "LevelEditor" module has not yet been loaded when the "FAudiokineticToolsModule::StartupModule" function executes.

Therefore, the "Generate SoundBanks" item is not added by the "FAudiokineticToolsModule::StartupModule" function.
