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"

Hey ddintzner,

This is a known issue for graphics cards that are limited to OpenGL 3.3, as yours is. In UE 4.2, we added some experimental support for older graphics cards. You mention trying 4.1.1 and 4.1.2... did you mean to say 4.2?

If you haven't tried 4.2 yet, please do and see if you have the same problem.

If you have tried 4.2 and experienced this purple screen, please find a log file from running the editor and attach it here. It should contain some info about your graphics card that would be helpful to us. You can find the log files here: ~/Library/Logs/Unreal Engine

Hey Derek,

Just wanted to check in and see if you've had a chance to try 4.3 yet. It's possible that there won't be anything we can do since your graphics card doesn't support OpenGl 4.1, but there's always the chance that small improvements we've made might resolve the issue for you. Even if it is resolved, however, you still might have trouble running the engine with an older card like that.

I'm going to mark this post resolved for tracking purposes, but please feel free to open it again if you have any questions. Thanks!
