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"

Unreal Engine 4 crashes trying to open project.

My Unreal Engine 4 project has started crashing everytime I try and open it. I have tried on many computers with no luck (My main, the college computers and and older computer I dug out). It gets to about 96% loading on each machine and then gives up. The project folder has gotten way bigger over the past few weeks (18GB) due to me essentially compiling together various versions of the project into one big feature epic for my college presentation. I have an idea about what might be causing the problem: Because my Main computer has limited CDrive space, I regularly have to delete the files in DerrivedDataCache folder (Usually well over 8GB), but now when I check the folder size after a crash it's only 3.86GB (on all computers). I think it's failing to build the DerrivedDataCache. Here are my crash logs:

Hi -

We have no reports of this particular crash before, but I think I can give some guidance to at least get the project back open again. First, it looks like something in your default map is causing the crash, so first thing copy the UMAP file that loads on opening to a new location (outside of the project) and delete it in the project, this alone should get you back in the project.

NOw, I would delete the Derived, Intermediate and Saved Subfolders and let your engine rebuild everything again. You talk about combine assets from various projects, have you been migrating them or merely copying them from Windows Explorer. If it's from Windows Explorer, you could have some Redirector issues which you will need to dig through the project and find and correct.

Finally it looks like you are using a lot of level and texture streaming in the map file that is crashing the project, try to temporarily simplify the landscape material (even down to just a series of colors) and then copy that umap file back in your project in the same place you removed it form and close and open the engine again.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
