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"

Alt+F4 causes editor to freeze when exiting standalone game

If you play your game from the editor with the "Standalone Game" setting then exit using Alt+F4 the editor just stops responding to input. This was tested in a blueprint only project immediately after creating it.

Hi kgamble,

I was not able to reproduce this following these steps:

  1. Open a blank Third Person Blueprint Template in the UE 4.14 Preview

  2. Select and play "Standalone Game"

  3. Press Alt + F4

RESULT: Standalone window closes EXPECTED: Standalone window closes

Let me know if these repro steps are not accurate. Also, please provide your system specs.

Thanks,

Steve H.

Steve-

It's not that the standalone window doesn't close, that works as expected for me, but the editor just completely stops responding and I have to close it with Task Manager.

Here's my dxdiag. Thanks.

I have not been able to reproduce this... Do you find you can reproduce this consistently (ie 3 blank projects all freeze up the editor under these conditions.)

Also, please try this: With the editor closed, delete the DerivedDataCache folder from the U4.14. Restart the editor and test again. Let me know if you continue to experience freezing after this.

After deleting the DerivedDataCache folder and verifying through the launcher I tried with a BP First Person template, BP Vehicle Advanced template, a C++ Rolling template, and a C++ 2D Side Scroller template, all with the same results. I tried running the C++ projects both directly and debugging through Visual Studio with no difference.

I tried on 3 other computers in my office and none of them had this issue so it seems to be something specific to my machine.

Since I cannot reproduce the issue here and you cannot reproduce the issue on 3 other computers in your office, I would have to agree that the issue is specific to your machine. Make sure your Malware software is up to date and that you are allowing Unreal through your firewall.

I was having the same issue. For my build, 2 things solved it. Run epic launcher as administrator and I disabled my avira real time protection. Hope this helps someone.
