Editor changing color depth to 256 unexpectedly.

I have never encountered this issue with any standard builds provided by Epic but if anyone has ever experienced this issue or understands what might be happening we would appreciate any advice on resolving the issue.


When executing projects with this build, the color depth of the engine shifts to 256 colors which makes validating content, before packaging, problematic.

  • When running a project the first time, the editor displays color depth normally.
  • On the second and subsequent executions, the engine drops to an ugly 256 colors.

Engine Version:

  • We are using a custom build of 4.24.3 provided by the hardware vendor.

    Note: This issue has been seen in other versions of the engine by the developer.

I’ll provide any additional data to help resolve the issue if needed.

Thanks community!
