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"

Kernel panic on start

I just downloaded 4.21 yesterday, and can't get the editor to work.

On starting the editor from the launcher, the banner appears, loads to a hundred percent and disappears, and then my computer locks up and crashes to blue screen. The same thing happens when opening it the .exe directly.

There are some load errors at the start of the log file (attached), but loading seems to continue fine after that.

I've tried the standard fix which everyone suggests (deleting various combinations of the contents of AppData\Unreal Engine\4.21). Still doesn't work. I tried deleting from AppData\Unreal Engine\Common as well, which also failed to work.

Specs are attached. I've run UE on this computer before, but it was ages ago (XP era) and I don't remember which version.

EDIT: Forgot to say that I've also checked the driver for my graphics card, and it's up to date.

Product Version: UE 4.21
