UEFN Freeze

UEFN will sometimes freeze and you will not be able to close it, the only way to close it is VIA task manager. Ending the UEFN task will freeze your PC.

You can try to replicate the issue incase its just my on my end.

Hi @drift1:

Could you provide more details about what you were doing before the freeze occurred? Was this while the editor was starting up, or were you in a project and performing a specific action before the hang occurred?

Hello

This UEFN freeze is also happening to me. It completly freezes after a couple seconds when I open my project and try to do something on it. I can only close the editor via task manager.

My EUFN also keeps freezing, mine froze for the 1st time when it said “Updating out-of-date packages”. I then closed the app through task manager and now when I start the application its frozen. I have reinstalled the app 4 times and still no response.
I have attached a picture of what appears when I open the editor.

Hello All! If you’re able to reproduce the freeze please follow these steps:

  • Run Process Explorer
  • Right click the UnrealEditorFortnite.exe
  • Create Dump → Create Minidump

Once created if you could DM me the minidump file and what you were doing before the freeze that would be very helpful. Thanks!

It keeps happening to me today when I try to launch a session. How can I DM you @HalcyonKnight96 ? Not familiar with this application

yeah mine keeps freezing every time i load a project and before then it would just randomly crash ive had problems with it sense launch day i really want to use this but i have been forced to stick to 1.0 creative

@pluckywoodjr if UEFN is freezing for long enough to capture a minidump please follow these steps when it freezes UEFN Freeze - #5 by HalcyonKnight96 I’ll take a look at your crashes as well.

ok i did that and its still freezing
i tried making a survival island and it froze

Sorry, please send the minidump to me if you have it so I can look into it.

how do you want me to contact you

Can you DM me in these forums? Otherwise Discord could work.

im new to using this is it possible i send it to you through discord

The same happens to me multiple times a day, i think it looses the connection to fortnite after a while and then uefn freezes, totally unresponsive.

i have a feeling they will work out these problems out before the end of the beta

It’s months that I can’t even use UEFN because of this. I can’t do anything! It been some days that I am scrolling the internet, searching for someone who has my same problems, and this is the only thing I can find!

After Months of waiting, trying to resolve the problem, I still have it!

UEFN works fine on my 10 years old PC but not on my 1 year old laptop…Keeps freezing unfortunately
