Hello I’m trying to compile for android-19 but is getting stuck at the begining, there isn’t any error showing up, however this is what native.log is showing:

It’s been like this for 30 minutes and I don’t know how to make it work. Any help is welcome.

Many Thanks :smiley:


hi mate

try ndk-r13b , i hope it fix your issue :wink:


Thank you! With ndk-r13b doesn’t get stuck anymore but I’m still having a problem, actually compile fails showing this error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    A problem occurred configuring project ‘:Godai’.
    > Failed to notify project evaluation listener.
    java.lang.NullPointerException (no error message)
    > Could not get unknown property ‘externalNativeBuildDebug’ for project ‘:Godai’ of type org.gradle.api.Project.

  • Try:
    Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --debug option to get more log output.


I don’t know how to continue from this point,
Any tips?

Thanks :slight_smile:


hi again ,

hmmm , try and clean and rebuild the project in android studio , i guess there is still old nativeBuildDebug outputs in project.


Okay I finally solved it, I had my ndk outside from the folder ndk-bundle inside the sdk folder. So the ndk-bundle folder was actually empty, that was making the build fail.

I’m sorry it wasn’t relationed with the ndk, however, many thanks :smiley:


oh nice , glad to hear your up and running again.
i didn’t know creator works with ndk-r16b. thanks
