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"

PlayClaw 3 Crashes Launcher

tl;dr: PlayClaw 3 (gamecapturing software) stops UE4 from Launching.

I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents at the recent problem:

I've been having problems opening UE4 as the launcher suddenly stopped working. The launcher would not open - it would load for a few seconds sometimes bring up the splash screen but then just close itself down. I've searched for different solutions, but I seem to have all the needed items. As a last resort before reinstalling windows I remembered that PlayClaw had previously interefered with games that would not launch so I closed it down and tried again: Bingo.

I'm currently downloading the Engine again as I had deleted it to reinstall it - it seems the problem is fixed and unless you hear more from me assume it is! :)

Hi Busymonkey,
