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"

UE4.5 demos broken on OSX Yosemite

I updated my iMac from OSX 10.9.5 to 10.10 (final) and most of the the UE4.5 demos are broken and unusable. They worked flawlessly on OSX 10.9.5.

Take a look at Matinee on OSX 10.10:

The characters are all messed up and some shaders are not correctly represented.

Here is the ContentExamples Animation sample scene: alt text

Seems like animated characters are the most affected.

Is this a known problem?

This should be fixed by the full 4.5.1 update which includes the required workaround for an Apple/Nvidia OpenGL driver bug introduced in 10.10.0.

There's a bug in NVIDIA driver in Yosemite that causes this. Apple and NVIDIA are working on this, but in a meantime we prepared a workaround, which you can download from here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/unrealengine/qfe/QFE-FromCL-2326468-Shelve-2331902_Mac.zip (92 MB) Just unpack the zip file and run the patch installer. It will also be included in UE 4.5.1.

I'm sorry to say that the QFE doesn't solve the problem for me. I run QFE-FromCL-2326468-Shelve-2331902.app from the Desktop and I get no error, no installation visual feedback... nothing. I run Matinee and the problem is still there.

Hmm. No idea how did this happen, but the patch is missing a file. Sorry about that!

I will prepare a fixed zip, but in a meantime, if you don't want to wait:

Please unzip the attached Base.lproj.zip, then right click on QFE-FromCL-2326468-Shelve-2331902.app, select Show Package Contents and move the unzipped Base.lproj folder to Contents/Resources in there.

ew well sorry but now the engine wont launch ^^', it puts a few seconds launching then just stops, like it autocloses. I reinstalled 4.5 and now it launches, but there is still the animation freezing problem it comes only when I import a skeletal mesh.

avatar image ZeroEightSix STAFF Oct 22 '14 at 12:55 PM

I'm terribly sorry about that. Apparently I made a mistake when preparing a patch and built it for different build of the engine that was actually released. I'll prepare a new, correct one immediately.

avatar image ZeroEightSix STAFF Oct 22 '14 at 07:05 PM

As it turns out, 4.5.1 should be released tomorrow and will include this fix, so please just wait for that. Again, apologies for the broken patch and many thanks for patience.

No problem thanks for the help^^

avatar image rancio Oct 23 '14 at 11:50 AM

Thanks Michael, I'll wait for 4.5.1
