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"

Did you find a fix for this?

For me activating the VR Plugins seem to have fixed it.

The defect is that VR is required to launch. I have an HTC Vive causing steamvr and my lighthouses to go active despite a non-vr game.

I also had this issue, so I had to fix it myself. This is the fix:

Go to HeadMountedDisplayCommon.h and there you see 3


Make sure that everyone of those is set to


Then package again, and it's fixed :)

This issue has not been fixed in 4.17 as described in the Bugtracker. I just had exactly this issue with my packaged build and re-enabling the VR Plugins fixed the crash.

Hello Blue669,

Thank you for reporting that this issue still occurs. I've tested it locally and reproduced it on 4.17 release myself. As such, I've reopened the ticket and we will be looking into a solution. It's possible that this only happens in the Binary editor. If that is the case, that would explain why it seemed to be fixed at the time.

Hey Matthew, I just wanted to chime in and let you know that I'm experiencing this same issue. I made another AnswerHub post to inquire about UE-43383, which at the time seemed to have been mistakenly flagged fixed in a mysterious nonexistent changelist: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/666305/once-an-issue-is-marked-fixed-in-the-issue-tracker.html

The issue started occurring for me once the SteamVR plugin was explicitly disabled. Prior to that change, the .uproject file didn't contain a reference to SteamVR in its list of plugins (meaning it was enabled by default), and the standalone Win64 game executable (built in Development Client config) worked fine. Once SteamVR was explicitly disabled in the .uproject file, and then all executables rebuilt and content re-cooked, the same game executable crashes on startup with the error shown above in Rowbow's original post.

If I'm understanding "in the Binary editor" correctly (i.e. if you mean that the issue might only occur with the precompiled Launcher version of the engine, and not with local editor binaries compiled from source), then I wanted to mention that I'm seeing this issue when using a build of UE 4.15 that I've cloned from GitHub and built from source.

confirm that 4.17, I can't start packaged game without OCULUS VR PLUGIN no needen in my game

I am getting the same issue. First time seeing it and now it is happening all the time. LowLevelfatalError [file:D:\Build++UE4+Release-4.16+Compile\Sync\engine\sourse\runtime\renderCore\Private\RenderingThread.cpp}{Line:981}…

I'm using the windows mixed reality. It worked fine for several months. Must have something to do with an update somewhere. Like SteamVR.
