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"

Crashes on startup in ShaderCompiler::ProcessCompiledJob


We pulled the new 4.18 sources from Github and I then tried to compile our Unreal Engine project using that version of the engine sources.

Ran Setup.bat and GenerateProjectFiles.bat

I finally made the Engine compile properly and then it started compiling the game's solution.

The compilation works and at around 95% of the editor loading, the program crashes.

This is the callstack I get in Visual Studio:

Also, the Job in question that is causing problems is:

So far, from what I've found on the internet, there seems to be a problem with ShaderCompileWorker, some people have suggested rebuilding it but how would I do that please? Also, they have suggested rerunning Setup.bat (which I have done) to no avail.

About the error itself:

In line 4053 of ShaderCompiler.cpp, the engine assigns the variable ShaderJob. Unfortunately, the current job has its succeeded field to false.

This leads to the Fatal error and crash.

If I am mistaken and should also compile in Debug Editor to see more debug information, let me know.

If you have any lead on what might be wrong, I will happily hear it! :)

If you need any additional information to help me out, please let me know, I didn't want to drown people in useless information because I didn't really know where to look exactly.

Thank you for your time and help!
