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"

Engine lags then crashes within a minute, can't view stack trace

I don't think this is an engine bug, it still happens on older versions of UE4 that used to run just fine. Something is wrong with my system. I haven't had any problems with this graphics card trying to run anything else.

I generated a new project based on the C++ shooter and haven't touched anything yet so it's not my code. Often it will crash on the project selection screen before the whole editor is even loaded.

I can't view the stack trace, even though I did install debugging symbols and I can see the PDB files in the engine's binaries folder. I still get "You do not have any debugging symbols required to display the callstack for this crash."

Things I've already tried with no luck:

  • Delete DerivedDataCache folder

  • Delete Saved and Config folders of project

  • Reinstall graphics drivers

  • Windows update

  • Switch to OpenGL renderer

My crash log

Sometimes in my log I get "Timed out while waiting for GPU to catch up" before it crashes but not every time.

I'm really stuck on what to do here besides a full Windows reinstall, but that would be inconvenient to say the least. Hopefully somebody has some more ideas of things I can try :D
