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"

Changing landscape material with visibility hole causes crash

This happened to me in 4.8 and 4.9.

If you create a hole in the landscape with one material, and then you decide you want to clear the material or change to a different one, the editor will crash and it is impossible to change material unless you first remove all holes in the landscape.

Product Version: UE 4.9

Hello InternetPotaoMan,

From what you have described you created a landscape and added a material for it and for a hole. Then you make a hole using the visibility tool. Then you cleared either the hole material or the landscape material. I have tested for both to make sure. After you do that the editor does crash.

Using what I just described I tested this on my machine and was unable to reproduce the crash.

If you would link me your DxDaig and then tell me if any of the steps I used differ from yours. I will then see if I am able to test this further.

Thank you,

Steps to reproduce the crash on my end. Create landscape Add material Create hole with visibility tool (not using the old visibility material method) Try to clear or change the landscape material.. Immediate crash.

I've made a video which you can see here. Though for some reason the dropdown menus don't show up using xsplit to record.. But as you can see.. I use the most simple material possible with just a color and landscape visibility mask

Then I create a hole, and then try to clear the material and it crashes.

Here is my DxDiag DxDiag
