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"

Flickering/disappearing meshes

Hi, some of the meshes in my scene start to flicker/disappear when a look at them from a certain angle/distance. I'm using 4.4 and I get no errors after building. Here is a video of my problem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1sB4WE-5i8

Hi Rutgerverbist,

Could you post your dxdiag (system specs)? Also, are the flickering meshes BSP geometry or Static Meshes?

They are static meshes. dxdiag in the attachment

I believe the issue is caused by having a integrated graphics card instead of a dedicated card. We recommend having a NVIDIA GeForce 470 GTX or AMD Radeon 6870 HD series card or higher.


As a workaround, try going to the Quick Settings icon and adjusting your Engine Scalability Settings to something lower than Epic.

but i have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M. and putting the settings lower than epic doesn't resolve the issue. flicker is still there.

I'm talking with our compatibility team now to see if they have seen any issues like this with your model graphics card. In the meantime, do you have any sort of LODs on the static meshes that's having these issues?
