Unreal Engine 4.23 Preview

our iOS binaries re-appeared this morning, try giving it a shot again if you haven’t already

Did I mention it before already? I have graphics card Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and processor AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor 3.40 GHz, 8 gb ram. Windows 8.1 64-bit(original box version).

I wanna updoot this one. I have been crashing when trying to preview mobile renderer as well. Also, it seems like the render target regression is back. My RT works fine in the editor but as soon as I launch to the device it’s not there.

Yeah, sorry, somehow I got confused by the name and couldn’t relate it to a previous post. Well, the specs are really OK. What is possibly missing is the components for Visual Studio, so could you execute the installer and post a print screen from the selected options to install with it. There are a couple of modules that are necessary to install, so I can pin-point what is missing with this screenshot.

Will the final release for Unreal Studio 4.23 including Product Viewer (same setup as 4.22) and Collab viewer (for multiplay and product viewer)?

Yay! Thanks Epic <3

Fingers crossed that this fixes some of the Quest / Android badness that’s been going down in the last few patches. :smiley:

@UnexpectedSquirt It does. Just be sure to specify Quest in the new Project Settings: ‘Package for Oculus Mobile devices’ array

Is there an expected date on full release of 4.23?

Yes, but we don’t announce specific dates in case that slips.

However, it will be soon.

Thanks you.


Has the Early Z Pass been fixed for 4.23? I see that it says it is fixed for 4.23 but I dont see it in any of the bug fixes. Unreal Engine Issues and Bug Tracker (UE-76059)

Yes, it was resolved in the 4.23 build before the first preview, which is why its not listed in any of the specific preview notes.

So the weird inverted faces bug is (mostly) fixed on Android (I’m still seeing it with meshes that have, or are attached to primitives with a negative scale, however). Not sure if this is intended, but it definitely wasn’t happening prior to 4.23.

Unfortunately the render target regression does not appear to be fixed. I’m still not seeing any render targets appear on the Quest. (They appear fine on PC).

Definitely an improvement, but the lack of functioning render targets for Quest makes me a sad panda ;(

When you submit a bug case report

  1. it does not assign a confirming UE-####,
  2. does show in your profile as a viewable open issue you created and submitted
  3. does not appear in the list of searchable open issues

LOL…Am I missing something?

It has to be accepted (reproduced) to get an issue number, also if it has been already reported but from UDN it’s possible it won’t be a public issue (you can’t see details).

Yeah it’s really annoying. I’ve not tested the latest preview but last time I tested it was not as bad if I built for Vulkan however OpenGL3.1(or 2) resulted in this appearing pretty heavy. I’m seeing some strange things with collisions not working correctly as a result of this as well btw.

Seeing as the launch of 4.23 is imminent and Quest development is still pretty busted, I may just have to bail and revert back to a previous engine version. @aussieburger Which was the last stable version you used for VR dev?

In any case, I’ve submitted a fresh bug report for the render targets. I also uploaded a video demonstrating the issue.…

One thing that is different between now and the other preview builds is that the ES3.1 preview actually shows the problem correctly. Previously it would appear to work in the preview but not the headset. So uhhhh, good job on that? :smiley:

Do you need more specifications of my pc guys?
