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"

4.7.3 freezes when I add content to the scene

Hey everyone! This question is not only mine, it also took place in our Russian U4 Community and nobody knows how to deal with this bug. Well, the issue is that when we add something new (which wasn't compiled before in the exact scene or project), it can be a material, mesh, even brush, U4 drops dead. It doesn't reacts to all the actions at all. Task Manager shows that U4 has no reply. After 2 or 3 minutes it comes to life and starts to compile shaders. Such problem only takes place in 4.7 and above. Why is so? Please tell us how to solve this problem, because it's really annoying to wait 2-3 minutes each time, for each material or mesh. Our Russian community is looking forward to hearing a useful tips for resolving this problem. Thank you.

Hey Tony,

Are you receiving any callstacks or a crash reporter when your editor freezes? Could you please provide me with your dxdiag log, so we can eliminate your computer as being part of the issue here? Also, please try updating your engine to 4.7.4, a lot of issues were resolved in the 4.7.4 release.

Looking forward to hearing back from you, thanks!
