Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Working with BSP causes frequent editor closures

Hey guys

Over the past few months I've been working in UnrealEd on and off, and I keep experiencing this problem on multiple different build versions. When working with BSP, I'm experiencing editor closures roughly every ten minutes or so, when performing simple operations such as moving a brush or editing it. There is no crash log or even a crash, everything just closes and I have to reload the editor.

I can't figure out how to attach my log and dump, it says the file types are invalid for attaching, and it's the same when zipping them up. I can provide them if you could tell me how.

Thanks Paul

Hey Paul,

You should be able to attach the zip file with your log and dump. If you are unable to attach a zip for any reason, you can put the files online somewhere and give us the link. Dropbox is a decent service for this if you don't already have another. Thanks!

Thanks Ben, please can you let me know if this link works?

Hi phaynes888,

Which version of the editor are you currently using? Does this occur in a blank project with no additional content.

I'm using version 4.4, though it was happening in 4.3 as well. I'll have to test whether it happens in a blank project at the weekend and get back to you

I've been messing about in a new project this morning, working with BSP, and can't replicate the issue, however it varies how long it takes before things start crashing in my other project. I do know that when working in my project my editor starts to slow down after roughly 15 -30 mins of use, as if there is some kind of memory leak, and this has happened on every version of unreal I've used so far (I think I started on 4.2). Operations like moving brush faces start to take longer to complete rather than instantly updating. Maybe it's related to the crashing?

It has always been the same project I've been working in however (migrating between build versions), but my project level doesn't contain anything complicated, just some BSP rooms at the moment and some basic lighting. There are also a few blueprint items in place.

Does this occur on the same project if you start a brand new level? try opening a brand new map and messing with BSP's. If this does slow the engine down and eventually crash it may be that the project is corrupt. If not, it may be the individual map is corrupt.
