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"

How to run UE4 to make it generate call stack in log on crash?

Is there any way to start UE4 Editor with being able to see crash call stack, besides launching UE4 via Debug (F5) in Visual Studio?

It takes too long to start UE4 from VS... If I just open compiled binary, there'll be no call stack in log files on crash

Product Version: UE 4.13

In order to see call stack on Editor crash you can run

 Build MyProjectEditor Win64 Development "D:\Unreal\MyProject\MyProject.uproject" -waitmutex

this command for building your project. After that opening the project in UE4Editor will write call stack into log on editor crash. For my project it is located in D:\Unreal\MyProject\Saved\Logs\MyProject.log

Excuse my asking but how exactly do I run this? I am new to this environment.but am interested in methods for fault finding and analysis. I usually progrram microcontrollers so it is quite different.

Sure. You have to run it from your command line tool. If you're from Windows, use cmd.exe
