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"

I am having an issue with a mesh and not sure how to expain it?

Hello everyone,

I am not sure whats going on here. I was running UE4 on an older machine with a Radeon 7700 Series Video Card. and everything was running and working great.

I updated my PC to include a GTX 950, but now I am having issues with my Meshes.

This is what I am getting on all my meshes I create.


I am not even sure what is happening.

Looks like two parts are overlapping and z-fighting. if two polygons are overlapping, thats what you see. double check in your 3d program if thats the case and fix it.

The confusing part is that it just started happening with me upgrading my Video Card.

can happen, back in the UnrealTournament99 days, I had a video card glitch that resulted in not showing semi-solid brushes.

Gave me a huge upper hand during competitive battles :p

So it could be that the way this new Video Card is handling the rendering is just bring to light the issues I am having with my Meshes. I will try and rebuild my mesh and see what happens.

Thanks Luos you pointed me in the right direction.

It wasn't my mesh itself but my near field clipping plane was set to 0.01 instead of 1. Not sure how this switch and was the cause of the issue on all my meshes.

If it wasn't for you giving me the term Z-Fighting I wouldn't have found the issue.
