how does the build.gradle looks like? what modules are you using?


// Gradle build config for Godot Engine's Android port.
// Do not remove/modify comments ending with BEGIN/END, they are used to inject
// addon-specific configuration.
apply from: 'config.gradle'

buildscript {
    apply from: 'config.gradle'

    repositories {
    dependencies {
        classpath libraries.androidGradlePlugin

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

allprojects {
    repositories {

dependencies {
    implementation libraries.supportCoreUtils

    if (rootProject.findProject(":lib")) {
        implementation project(":lib")
    } else {
        // Custom build mode. In this scenario this project is the only one around and the Godot
        // library is available through the pre-generated godot-lib.*.aar android archive files.
        debugImplementation fileTree(dir: 'libs/debug', include: ['*.jar', '*.aar'])
        releaseImplementation fileTree(dir: 'libs/release', include: ['*.jar', '*.aar'])

android {
    compileSdkVersion versions.compileSdk
    buildToolsVersion versions.buildTools

    defaultConfig {
        // Feel free to modify the application id to your own.
        applicationId getExportPackageName()
        minSdkVersion versions.minSdk
        targetSdkVersion versions.targetSdk

    lintOptions {
        abortOnError false
        disable 'MissingTranslation', 'UnusedResources'

    packagingOptions {

        exclude 'META-INF/NOTICE'

    // Both signing and zip-aligning will be done at export time
    buildTypes.all { buildType ->
        buildType.zipAlignEnabled false
        buildType.signingConfig null

    sourceSets {

I use the admob module but it gives the same error in an empty project

Try setting a new project without any modules installed, then check if it gives you the same error, and also, can you link the module's github?

The github page of the admob module I use: https://github.com/kloder-games/godot-admob

It gives the same error when I create a new project by using no modules.
My empty project android module page:

Gradle error:

if it gives you the same error when you run an empty project it means something in the setup is wrong, try looking at the docs
besides, you were trying to build a module instead of a plugin(godot 3.2+ uses real time build and a plugin system), you can find his port here:

because of your game files have non-english letters. I was also set my game files's name with japan and turkish letters, while installing to android it was giving license error then I change just file names. değerimi bil :)

I can custom build on linux operating system with the same files. But I can't do it on windows :) WTF? Yinede teşekkürler :)

I'm getting the same error. But there are no Turkish "character" and "folder" names in the project. There is a translation file csv. Could it be due to this file?
