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"

Unable to start a project.


I just downloaded the mac binary and installed the latest version through the launcher (4.3). Whenever I open editor and create a new project, it generates all the project files but after that nothing happens and the editor icon just sits in dock. No error or nothing. I looked into documents/Unreal Projects/MyProject folder but there are no error log files so I can't pinpoint the problem of what's happening in background. Running on OS X 10.9.2

*Also - I checked the task manager and the editor runs in background. Problem is that it doesn't appear on screen.

Any help appreciated!!

Update: - created a new user on my mac and tried to launch the editor from it. Everything launched fine and was able to build and run a project. The problem is that I can't launch it on my user profile. Both of them have administrator privileges.

Any ideas?

Update 2: managed to debug - when creating a project it wasn't creating a splash folder. When i copy pasted a splash folder in to the project folder it was able to launch. How to make it so it automatically creates the folder?!

Hey OneMethod,

Sorry for the delay in response. Just wanted to let you know that I am looking into the issue and will let you know when I have some information for you.

Sorry for the delay, I thought I had responded last week but am just noticing that my answer isn't here. Not sure what happened there...

Anyway, the logs won't be in the documents folder, so you should be able to get them for us. You can find them here: /Users/UserName/Library/Logs/Unreal Engine/ProjectNameEditor/

Try this again, and get us the latest log file after the issue occurs. You may want to try updating to 4.3.1 or 4.4, just in case this is an old bug from 4.3.
