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"

Unreal engine 4 instant crash linux


I'm trying to get Unreal Engine to run on my laptop. I've installed it about 3 different times but it's always the same.

Every time I create a new project (a blank one with as little things in it as possible) my computer just instant freeze. Sometimes the project doesn't even get to show on my screen before the freeze.

I have a ie-8350u and 16gb of ram. I don't have a gpu. I don't know if that could be the issue. Unity and Blender both run real smooth, but Unreal is a nightmare.

I'm using Archlinux.

If anybody could point me in the right direction to understand why it freeze my computer like that i'd really appreciate it.

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.21

Can you launch the editor from command line? That should give you the log more readily. Or it would be available in the project directory Saved/Logs/ or Saved/Crashes/ that should give you more pointers...

The missing GPU might be it as not all Intel gpus handle the engine ok(it runs Vulkan by default now btw)
