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"

Built Project; DevBuild Stable, ShippedBuild Unstable

Hi All,

I recently did a test packaging to see how things ran outside of the editor, and to have others play around with the character controller. This project was done entirely with Blueprints. The Devbuild, like playing the level from within the editor, is very stable. The Shipped package build version is incredibly unstable. It cannot run for more than about 10 minutes without crashing, and it gives no crash report, saying that debug symbols are absent, or some such. Any thoughts on ways to determine the reasons for the persistent crashes in the Shipped build that aren't present in DevBuild? I need to clear up these issues before it really makes sense to continue this project's development.

The two builds presented here:

DevBuild: http://www.mediafire.com/download/jw1c74d7k9v2711/DevBuildJuli12.7z

ShippedBuild: http://www.mediafire.com/download/nurdu5jfbr91xyk/BuildJuly12.7z

Thanks for your time.

Product Version: UE 4.7

Hi Juniper,

I played your shipped build on my machine here for about half an hour and then I left it open while I had lunch, so it was playing on machine for about an hour; I was unable to see any stability problems. Could this be an issue with your own machine? Can you attach your dxdiag to this thread?

Hi Wittlief,

Thanks for the effort.

Good to see that the build was stable on your machine. I have attached my DxDiag to this message; since it worked well for you, I am thinking it might be high time to update display drivers on my end... six months may have passed since the last update. Anything you see in the DxDiag text amiss here would be appreciated as well!

I put together a second shipped build with the debug files included, hoping to spot the issue in the error logs, and curiously that shipped build is stable (theoretically nothing was changed between the two).

Yeah, driver update would be my suggestion, it's the only thing that jumps out at me on your dxdiag: Driver Date/Size: 5/19/2014 22:44:03, 17480432 bytes. Everything else looks like it can handle things just fine.

I am super glad your second build was stable. I'll leave this thread open until after driver update, but if you don't see your packaged project crash again after we'll close this out as resolved. :)

Hi Juniper,

Everything still stable?
