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"

The error code : "SEGV_MAPERR at 0x3" is a general code that can be caused by a number of various reasons. In order for us to troubleshoot the issue, please copy the entire contents from the Crash Reporter window, paste them into a text doc and attach to your reply. Be sure to hit submit on the Crash Reporter pop-up and that your Machine ID is included in the Crash Report.

One thing you can try immediately that may resolve the issue is to delete the DerivedDataCache folder from the install directory, then try to launch the Editor. Another thing would be to reinstall this version of the editor and then verify the install: Launcher>Library>EngineVersion [click on yellow down arrow on icon] >Verify.

Try the troubleshooting steps first, then provide the requested information if this does not succeed.

I could not find a match for this on our Crash Reporter data site. Are you hitting submit when the Crash Reporter window pops up? If you haven't already, please do this at least one time.

Also, be advised that UE4.14 no longer supports Open GL 4 so that may be an issue... However, UE4.13 should still be functional. Please post your Mac's Specs to see if there is a hardware conflict. -Thanks

I updated to system 10.11.6 and still have the problem.

I presume is my graphic card an old ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB openGL 4

List of Mac computers that support Metal

From the above list, it would appear that your system does not support Metal, and thus you would not be able to run UE4.14. However, you should still be able to run up to UE4.13.2.

Try uninstalling, the reinstalling UE4.13.2. Try to launch and if you get another crash, please be sure to hit the "submit" button in the Crash Reporter window. I'll use the information you have already supplied to try and track this data and see if your crash can be linked to one that has already been resolved.

Since we have not heard back from you in a while, we are marking this post "resolved" for tracking purposes. However, if you are you still experiencing crashes when trying to launch UE4.13 or UE4.14, please respond with the requested information and we will continue to investigate.
