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"

[Repro Included] [4.7] Artifacts In Viewport in Fullscreen PIE

Repro Steps: 1) Play in PIE - Using the Editor Viewport 2) Hit F11 to go fullscreen.

Hey TheJamsh,

I tried testing your issue with different types of blank projects following with your reproducible steps, but was unable to see what you are reporting.

Can you reproduce this in a new blank project?

Also, try closing all of the applications aside from the Engine and see if they could be affecting the issue as well. Have you set the resolution in code somewhere for your project? This could be clamping the overall fullscreen effect of your game, and displaying it improperly on your monitor.

Let me know what you discover and if you have further questions.

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

Hi Andrew,

Not had a chance in a blank project yet, but here's a video if it makes it any easier to debug! Only occurs in 4.7, older versions of the project never had this.


My window/resolution settings are all at the default, and it happens on all PC's I've tested it on.

Hey TheJamsh,

Is there anything I could add or do to an empty project to recreate this visual issue?

Thanks for the video though, it definitely helps give me solid example as to what I should be looking for.

I'll give it a try tomorrow in a blank project :) It's a real mystery in regards to what's causing it...

Hey theJamsh,

Just wanted to check-in and see if you were able to repro this issue in a blank project?

If you are experiencing a similar issue, would you mind providing some reproducible steps, and some screenshots of your particular widget?

Hi Eric / Andrew

I was able to reproduce this in the SillyGeo content example on the Learn tab. All i did was create a new project in 4.7, and play in fullscreen PIE. You have to play in the editor viewport.

Here's a screenshot:

Hey theJamsh,

Thank you for the extra information on where to reproduce this issue. I will return with my findings after testing. Since it is a straightforward and easily reproducible issue, I am pretty sure I will report back with an entered bug report.

Appreciate you taking the time to investigate.

So after testing the Silly Geo project on my machine, I was unable to reproduce the visual error you are encountering.

Would you mind providing me with your dxdiag so I can have a look at your system specifications?

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

Hello GameWayStudio,

Would you mind removing any Widget you are rendering to the screen and pressing play again to see if you are still experiencing the issue. I noticed the factor that unifies the issue is they are all using a Widget Blueprint.

Let me know what you discover if this changes anything or if you need more help.
