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"

Content Examples Freeze my computer

First time using Unreal.

Currently in Unreal Engine v4.14.3. I download the Content Examples, But when I try to open it it stops at 39% for over a minute and then freeze my computer.

Have anyone have this issues before?

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.14

Hi Mega_Dyne,

I tested this and it does take a minute or so to load on my machine, but it doesn't freeze/crash. It is very likely related to your hardware or drivers. Would you post your Dxdiag (system specs) so I can take a look?

  • Windows: Go to the Start menu and type ‘dxdiag’ into the search bar. Open the file and then click ‘Save All Information’. Post that text file here.

  • Mac: Go to the Apple menu and click ‘About This Mac’.

I don't see anything that should cause this issue. I have a few questions:

When you say that it freezes your system, are you having to Ctrl+Alt+Del and kill UE4 with the Task Manager or does it actually freeze your system to the point you must hard reboot your PC?

How long have you tried waiting for it to unfreeze? It could take several minutes to load on some systems. I would at least try once to give it 10-15 min.

Does the freeze also happen in other engine versions like 4.13.2?
