Editor crash, I can't open the project anymore

Hi everyone,

I got a crash issue with the editor. I am not able to open my project anymore.

It crashed at the moment that I saved the project.

There is a way to open autosave or backup file directly from the launcher? or how I can resolve this cash… I really need to recuperate this project.

Thanks and advance!

Here the crash reporter :


Could you please cause the crash to occur again and provide the logs from your project’s Saved->Logs folder?

Also, could you try opening a copy of your project in 4.13 to see if the same crash is still occurring?

Thank you

Hi Sean,

Here the log file from the crash.

For the 4.13 version, I have some assets that aren’t compatible with this version. Will it be a problem?

After further investigation, this crash is related to Unreal Engine Issues and Bug Tracker (UE-32774)

This issue has been fixed in 4.13.

Have a great day!

Thank you,

I found I way to recuperate it without upgrading to 4.13. Maybe it will be useful for someone else.

I moved the backup file inside the content folder and I deleted the saved and config folder. When you open your project, it open the default level, but you can open your backup file the same way you will open a different level in your project. After that, I just saved the level with another name and I deleted the backup file from my content folder.

How did you open your project after deleting the folders?

please help

you need to coy past your backup file inside your project content folder
