    What's the count for us is how many gamers (especially our "target gamers") are using a given system.
    It's only approx. 6% of Steam users (who agreed on the survey) are still using Windows 7.

    Not all of them are necessarily a target for a visual-heavy 3D game. Actually it would be nice to have data combing given OS and hardware, i.e. how many users with modern GPUs use Windows 7. Or if people on old systems actually actively buy games - most of the Steam users buy only 1-5 games.
    Less important if someone's game is a simple 3D game.

    Obviously, it just arguing on numbers. And doesn't matter much, dropping support for Windows 7 should be properly announced ahead of release, so the developer could decide if it's OK for him to consider an upgrade.
    Windows 7 support could be sustained until the end of UE4, dropped by UE5 at the end of 2021. Most likely most of the active games would switch to Windows 10 for DirectX 12 gains. And still would be almost 2 years after dropping support by Microsoft itself. (that's just my thoughts, though)

      Not sure If someone will be able to shed some light. I have updated the project from 4.21 all the way to 4.24 without any issue. Comes 4.25 and basically it all opens fine, no errors of Compile in BP and I can build. However attempt to play PIE, in viewport or from build gives me instant crash with this message below:





      Log does not seem to give anything of substance in order to debug, any idea what this could be?

        i'm no guru by any means, but it is important to get up to 4.25+ because they will be the only versions that will upgrade to ue5... you may have to rebuild things and it might be a pain, but, in my eyes, it has to be done... i hope you find your answer (smile)... steve

        add: shared pointer... i wonder if that is a bug or if you have the pointer confused as to who to follow... glad i'm not a coder, i would be up all night looking for it (chuckle)...

          .
          Does it say anywhere that 4.25 will be the "only version" that will upgrade to UE5?
          Because for all intensive purposes, you could have a 4.20 scene, and then open that scene in 4.24. It's not like 4.24 can only handle a previous 4.23 scene, you know?

          Are you just really recommending getting up to speed with the latest version before the transition to UE5, because just the way you are saying it it almost sounds like there is some actual technical requirement, as in you know UE5 is coming after 4.25.

            well, I do remember Sweeney saying that moving from 4.25 to UE 5 would be "painless" .. But yeah, The project has not had any issue updating to 4.22,4.23,4.24 now 4.25.1 is just giving me that error with no log to hang on to, I don`t really know how to debug this without any bread crumb to hang on to

              yeah, i just remember 'hearing it' somewhere, don't remember where... it might be an extrapolation on my part, but it would be a 'good to know' thing if someone here does know for sure to share...

                Assuming that your project has to be 4.25 to update to 5 there's nothing that's keeping you from continuing to use 4.24 until 5 is available, then upgrade to 4.25 and then straight to 5, thus bypassing all the runtime problems that 4.25 provides, no?

                  It was never mentioned in UE4 doc/blog that one has to be in 4.25 in order to upgrade to UE5. It only says that you can always upgrade to UE5 - so do not wait, download the latest version and start developing.

                    Right, That`s the idea. I don` t think I would be able to debug this without breaking the project into testable chunk which would take a lot of time. So hoping that the issue goes away in UE 5 is the way to go.

                      When will next Hotfix be released? Why is it taking so long? Hotfixes are supposed to be fast, with major bug fixes, crashes fixes and other stuff. Last one released more than a month ago.

                            You can check out Master branch from Github, right now, build it and get yourself early 4.26
