ASAP: UE4 takes a long time to load HRees textures when it starts for the first time, why?

Hi, i have this problem since UE 4.19, but now it´s kind of worst in UE4.24, as i click play (PIE) for the first time, after launch Unreal Engine, everything looks horrendus, all textures without exception load in low rees and frame rate is as low as 1 to 2fps; to kind of fix this…. every time i load UE i click play and close that window several times, once i clicked it 4 times, textures finally load looking perfect and fps is restored, other times if i play like this, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes until textures suddenly change to high rees, why this happens?

Is this also going to happen to every player after package? What can i do?

this is texture streaming, most likely you have to many textures for the streaming pool size you have set (default is like 1Gb) r.Streaming.PoolSize then a number after will alter the pool to that size. for instance on my 980Ti i have it set to 5500 because i have 6GB video card ram.
also make sure you use performance profiling to find any areas affecting slow loading/bottlenecks

Thanks,

i have set it to 4000, my pc its kind of old, so, you think if i increase it to 5500 for example, i Will have more issues like this…. BUT, a person with a recent and cool pc, wont? in this case, i shouldn´t worry right?

I had to increae my pool size… because it was over, about a month since i started my Project LOL… but i do understand the performance issues ater using too many 4ktextures.
