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 (PIE/Standalone) takes a long time to load/close

Hello there,

like the title says, when I hit the PIE-Button, it takes quite some time to load the level. When I close the PIE-Window it sometimes takes up to a minute to close it completely before I can use the editor again. Especially on the first time I hit the PIE-Button. The second time it is a little bit faster.

When I close the Editor altogether, Visual Studio also keeps up the process (UE4) for some time. The UE4-Process seems to take up 11 GB of Memory (according to Visual Studio).

When I quit the packaged game it also takes very long before it closes.

I have the strong feeling that it has to do with the large amount of my instanced foliage. Since the trees in my level all have simple collision on them, I think it could take the program some time to clear the memory after shutdown?

Has anyone experienced this issue before? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Product Version: UE 4.12

Thank you for your response, GameMaker.

Though I am using Windows 10, I already know most of the tweaks described in the article and used them already.

Also I don't really think that Windows is the cause of the problem, because other levels do work without a problem.

Thanks though.
