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 4.8.3 keeps crashing

I open up my unreal Engine and simply move my curser around for a bit and then the engine crashes and I have to close the program and then I restart it and it crashes again.

Here is a copy of the latest log I have...link text

Hi JamesSwann95,

  • Does this occur in a clean, blank project with no additional content or is it limited to one project?

  • Can you post your dxdiag here so I can take a look?

  • Have you tried to reproduce this crash in any other engine version?

  • What steps are you taking to reproduce this on your end?

Yeah, where abouts would the dxdiag be for this?

And it does only seem to crash in blueprint window, tried creating a new project and opening up the blueprint window, moved around for a bit and it crashed again.

You can get the dxdiag by going to your windows start menu searchbar and typing in dxdiag. Open the .exe and save it to a .txt, then upload the .txt here. Is the crash limited to any specific assets or does it occur if you create a new, blank actor blueprint?

I'm guessing this is what you are after. I have only tried it with a material for the moment.

I see that your computer has an integrated GPU and an AMD Radeon R7, have you set it up to automatically use the R7? If not, try doing so to see if the crashes stop occurring.

I have went onto the AMD catalyst control centre and added the Epic Games launcher to the list of applications however the engine does keep crashing I try to use the blueprint system.

Is it the blueprint editor or the material editor? I'm a bit confused. Can you post a sample project where the crash is occurring? I'll be happy to take a look.

Crashing has stopped. Switched my laptop to maximum performance, changed graphic card setting for editor to hug performance and it stopped crashing. Thanks
