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 Crash. D3D? DirectX?

Good evening. I recently formated my computer and had to redownload UE along with a bunch of other stuff. When I recently tried to launch UE to work on my project it straight up crashed on launch. Everytime it gave me a crash report, but not much other than that.

I verified the installation and did redownload some things, but the thing is it seems like it hasn't helped much, so I'm posting my crash report here.

I'm considering this could be a problem with either DirectX or Direct3D drivers/software, due to the following line in the crash report:

Assertion failed: DXGIFactory1 == nullptr || DXGIFactory1.GetRefCount() == 1 >[File:D:\BuildFarm\buildmachine_++depot+UE4-Releases+4.8\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D

If it matters at all, I'm running UE along with the Epic games launcher on a 500g WD Black instead of the SSD my OS is on. Any help or hints as to what to do next is much appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.

This is the crash report:

MachineId:E19574644BD97E44BD01639AFD82933D EpicAccountId:8b3d5679bbfb42738dbac175c0d699cb

This is fixed for 4.9; if you're compiling from source I can let you know how to fix this (basically remove that line where it crashes). We're looking into making this a hotfix.
