Hello, everyone

After update my current project from cocos2dx v3.12 to v3.15, I got an issue that “Unknown engine version” when compiling android studio project. I did search this problem and saw someone also got same stuck with me but did not see any working solution. I do not use Cocos Creator.

I would really appreciate any help :smiley:


You can edit “.cocos-project.json” file in your project to this (add new key name “engine_version”).
If you can’t see that file, may be you should enable to see hidden file in your computer


Thank you! Work perfectly

I am getting error “Unknown engine version!”.
Can any one help me.
