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"

Why is my computer shutting completely off while building lighting *Not a heating issue.

My PC: AMD Ryzen 1700X ASUS Prime B350M-E Ryzen AM4 Crucial 16GB 2X8 D4 2400 SPLIT CL1 Samsung E 250GB WD 1TB 3.5 Mainstrm Blue HD Corsair CXM 650W 80+B SM PSU MS OEM windows 10 pro 64BIT OEM MSI GTX1050 2GB OC Dual fan

I started using UE4 about 2 months ago. Game Development. Started with small spaces, I had zero problems with that until i added the *Kite Demo'*s Foliage. My computer would shut right off after adding even the smallest amounts. So i decided to make my own and it worked just fine. After i got a good feel on things i started developing my open world. I have taken every precaution to reduce polygons and still i cant set more than approx 100 static mesh without shutting my computer completely down while building lighting.

So i forced no recomputed lighting and decided to rebuild. I decided to go back in because i wasn't liking my lighting quality and now i have over 3000 objects that need to be rebuilt. i don't want to have to start over but don't want to continue if i have to start over. Please Assist!alt text

Product Version: UE 4.19

This really sounds like hardware issue, you sure temperature is ok? As i know Ryzen halts with still power on motherboard so fans still working when it stops?

I'm positive the temperature is ok. The PC shuts down completely, even the fan. I have to power back on and reboot everything, almost like i hard restarted the machine.

Belay that, i downloaded a new way to check my temperature, and at 13% lighting built my temperature jumps up to 87C. So upgrade time. Thank you for your input.

My next question would be, Do I absolutely have to build the lighting to complete a game?

You could try to use the windows power settings to lower the maximum allowed power to the CPU

Ill check that out. Maybe that could end up saving me some money.
