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"

Audio crackles with multi GPU setup

Hey Unreal community!

I may have run into a bug in the current engine which has to do with multi GPU setups when you open windows on the secondary screen. Here's my current setup:

I have 2 GPUs installed, a Nvidia 760 GTX and a 610 GT. The 760 has 2 monitors attached, a full hd Samsung (1) and an older LG (2). The 610 has 1 monitor attached which is a full hd (3) too.

The main UE4 editor window runs on (1), I have another one on (2) which shows me the world outliner. properties etc. There's a content browser window open on (3) which allows me to work more efficiently while having the game in nearly full screen on (1).

In one of the projects I am working on I've recently set up a sound cue which fires when the character makes a footstep. When this happens or when I play the sound in the editor, it is crackling a lot. However, if I close or minimize all the windows on (3) so UE4 Editor is only running on the 760, the crackling is gone.

Is this a known issue?

Below are some screenshots of my system specs. Please tell me which additional information you need to be able to reproduce the issue and I'll do what I can to provide more details.
