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"

Editor (4.15, Mac) crashing and freezing whenever launched

Hi there, I'm real interested in using UnrealEngine on Mac, so I took the 3 hours to download it, and when I create a project and then open the project, everything lags out. Freezes. .. and usually results in my whole computer freezing and crashing.

After looking for problems similar to this, I couldn't really find anything helpful, but, I think it could be my specs, which is strange, because i'm like 99% sure all of my specs follow the requirements- Here they are:

OS: OS X 10.11.6 Processor: 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory: 16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 M380 2048 MB (Pretty sure this supports OpenGL 4.1)

I've tried looking through the settings as well and I haven't found anything useful.. Help would be appreciated, thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.15

I tested with version 4.13 and the application wouldn't even start, it would simply crash and then freeze my computer.

Try updating to macOS 10.12.3 - there have been a lot of Metal driver updates since 10.11.6.
