Android Project too large to build 4-architecture .apk?

    Hi guys,

    I'm currently on the 2.2.4 beta (IDE+runtime) and building projects in Android YYC for API 28.

    I've built several apk's for single architectures and they all work fine.

    However, when I build Android YYC for all 4 architectures at the same time (Armv7, x86, Arm64, x86_64) this results in the following error:

    Writing all stuff etc...

    If I select a single architecture or combinations of 2 or 3 it builds fine, this only happens when checking all 4...
    Cleaning cache doesn't make a difference...

    Any suggestions? Or should this be filed as a bug?

    Check my new post in this thread for more info on the problem

    I'm on Beta Runtime, and I can compile a blank project just fine with all 4 architectures selected. Either your SDK is misconfigured, or something specific to your project is stopping the compile. Always verify your setup with a blank project before trying to build anything real.

    Indeed, I can successfully compile a blank project with all 4 architectures selected...

    Well that means it's project specific...but I find it very strange that I can successfully build all architectures in any combination, as long as it's not all 4 together.
    What would the compiler do different when it builds all 4 together, compared to when building 1,2 or 3?

    Ok, finally, after hours and hours of trying to pinpoint the problem, I was able to narrow it down to the following:

    Somehow my error is related to the number of object and script files in my project.

    I was able to build an .apk for all 4 architectures after deleting a lot of objects, resulting in the following no. of files:
    -Total resources: 29750 (according to yyz builder)
    -Total files in objects folder on disk: 39002
    -Total project size on disk: 174mb

    So, if I then add a single event containing ANY script to ANY object in my project the build fails, resulting in the error mentioned in my first post.
    After this the no. of files is like this (obviously):
    -Total resources: 29751
    -Total files in objects folder on disk: 39003
    -Total project size on disk: 174mb

    If i then delete ANY event or script the project builds successfully again

    I guess the number of files is too much for the GMAssetCompiler.exe and it runs out of memory or space?

    I tried the following but none worked:
    -Switching to v2.2.3
    -Changing JDK maximum heap size to 8GB
    -Trying to build for different API's (26,27,28,29)
    -Deleting large resources like music, thereby making the project smaller in size
    -Installing SDK and NDK in a different directory
    -Clearing up space on my harddrive (free space is 120gb)
    -Building the project on a different harddrive (free space 600gb)

    I have the following specs:
    -Intel Core i7 8750H
    -16GB DDR4 RAM
    -256GB SSD with 120GB free space
    -Windows 10

    That shouldn't be the bottleneck...

    My questions:
    -Could this indeed be related to my project containing too many files for the GMAssetCompiler?
    -Anyone else with a large project experiencing this problem?
    -Any solutions?

    EDIT 1 (05-10-19):

    I was able to replicate the error in a new project only containing objects

    1. Download and import this .yyz
    2. In Android Options check all 4 architectures
    3. Build for Android YYC
    4. Observe the non-zero exit status error
    5. Clear cache (important!)
    6. Delete one object
    7. Build again
    8. Observe it now builds successfully

    EDIT 2 (07-10-19):

    Yoyo added it to the bug database
    Issue # 31412
