Setup Blueprint Projects

Install the Unreal Engine SDK with your Blueprint project.
For Unreal Blueprint Projects you have two options:
  • Convert your project to a C++ project, then use the C++ plugin. Start with this documentation.
  • Use the Blueprint Only version of the plugin. If you are using the Blueprint version of the plugin, you must do an Engine Install as described below. The Blueprint Only version of the plugin is very large as it includes all the generated binaries and other files.

Engine Install

Only use engine installation for Blueprint projects!
The Blueprint Only version of the plugin is much larger as it includes all the generated binaries and other files.
For a Blueprint Only project, you need to add the Ready Player Me plugin to a particular Unreal Engine version installed on your computer. This means that the plugin will be available to any Unreal project you open using that Unreal Engine version.
