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"

Game mode crashing editor. Can't figure out why...

Hey there. Last week, my UE4 project started crashing whenever I loaded Editor. I was able to narrow it down to my Game Mode BP. Something in that is crashing the editor. I've tried both 4.8 and 4.9 on both Mac and Windows. No joy. Alas, since I can't open the bloody thing without Editor crashing, I have no way to debug the thing. The message I get in the crash dialog isn't overly helpful. On the Mac, I'm seeing a lot of "filename not found" without it saying what filename it's looking for. On the windows side, I see it looking for a file in "[File:D:\BuildFarm...]" which obviously doesn't exist on my windows system. So, any advice on how I can further debug this and figure out what about this BP is causing my editor to crash everywhere? I'll attach the crash report for both Mac and Win for people's perusal. Any help would be greatly appreciated as it's brought poor Zeustiak's work to a grinding halt and I'd like to rectify that ASAP. Cheers,


Product Version: UE 4.9

I can't seem to attach files. The crash reports are both less then 150K. It says the max is 5 MB. Does it not allow .txt extension files? I'll try zipping it up...

i realize this is an older thread, but a way to debug this is to go into your config files, and change your startup level to 'entry' or any level that doesn't implement your game mode. i have this issue from time to time as well, and thanks to murphy's law, usually right before a critical presentation, lol. but if you change your startup level manually in the config file, you can at least open the editor. after that you should be able to open the blueprint to try and recompile whatever the problem is...which may or may not crash the editor again, but at least the log from that might be a little more helpful.
