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"

Hello Lemontmoon,

I just attempted to reproduce this issue on my end, and was unable to get the crash to occur. In order to effectively troubleshoot your issue, I will need the crash logs and callstack from the crash you are reporting.

Once we can reproduce this in a blank project, we can continue with the bug reporting process.

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

HERE IS DXDIAG LOG : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-HOogRNP4sBRm9LSlROd3NMSU0

sry,,, it was taking a little bit longer time,,,, i've been waiting for official release if it will not dissapear,, there are some more crashes related to this issue i've reported to answerhub. If I open 4.13 release , everything works like a charm

In 4.14 it crashes : - when editing mesh properties and changing materials - when,,, I create more than two landscape layers in landscape material ,, then when i will go to landscape - paint,, scroll down to see layers ---> boom, also crash

always crashes the Nvidia Kernel Driver

What I have tryed : uninstall UE,,, install again - reinstall windows - switched to simmilar gpu drivers,,, - switched my memmory sticks - atached gpu into another slot

I have found searchin google for my type of issues and fouund that this issue is related to more NVIDIA models,,, from gtx 560 to latest 1000th models based on users reports is that true >? if yes,, should I switch to AMD or will this problem be solved soon >? seems like NVIDIA has some strange problems with shaders compiling , or developing for theese two hardware brands is very simmilar ?

I am going to need the crash logs as well in order to research your crash internally. We are aware of a widespread crash with certain Nvidia drivers and cards, and yours could be falling under that category.

In order to determine if this is the case, I am going to request you add the "-d3ddebug" flag to your executable. This will allow use to read into why the GPU's could be failing.

To see how you add this flag, follow along on the post below which outlines this process.


Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

maybe i have found what is wrong ,, because I have old windows 10 build with disabled anoying updates throught registry my dxdiag says I have directx 11.2 version,,, and found that dx11.3 is from win build 10586.

I am going to do some research and will give u feedback with later win 10 build if it will solve maybe all those issues with NVIDIA if UE 4.14 is based on dx11.3 and later

check this out !!! http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=407551

finallyt THATS IT !!! Oh I've solved this... its because earlier build version of Windows 10 than 10586 will not recognize d3d11.3 and more.

So all who read this.. forget forever crashing KERNEL of GPU after U will get later build ,,, best u can do ,, get latest AIO version.

Consider this to be solved !!!!!!!! thanks also for your time ,,,U really helped me to figure out what da hell whas going on. Maybe I've helped a bit also.
