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"

Crash on Loading a Project

Everything crashes on loading now. I tried un-installing Unreal and reinstalling it. I created a new, blank project with no starter content, and even that fails, so I suspect it's something with my machine, though I don't recall changing/installing anything since last time when it was working. I even disabled/shut down all desktop enhancements (like WindowBlinds), and it still crashes. I'm using Unreal v4.8 since that was what I was using when it was working, though before the uninstall-reinstall I had tried 4.9 with no luck.

Log output here. link text

yes, all my crash logs seem to be cut off like that (in mid-output)

Hi clomaka,

Does the Crash Reporter window show up when it crashes? If so, please copy the information there, including the Machine ID, and paste it here. Make sure you hit Send. Thanks!

the crash reporter does come up, but it appears to crash partway through... Here's what it does give me, though: [1]: /storage/temp/62387-new+text+document.txt (of note, my d drive is a partion for system restores. nothing should be pointing into there) [link text][1]

Thanks. Can you also attach your dxdiag? The crash appears to be pointing to a display problem, possibly related to your graphics card and/or its drivers.

Huzzah, I found the issue. For future ref for other users w. an HP integrated card - it's the 3D specific settings. I had turned antialiasing off (trying to get Substance working and going faster). Switching back to balanced resolved the issue. My guess is that the conflicting antialising settings from the HP policy and from Unreal was causing the card to flip out.

resolved :D
