CRYENGINE 5.4 Feedback Thread (Major Release)


This is a dedicated topic to collect your feedback about CRYENGINE 5.4 (Major Release) in addition to the Launcher crash reporter, the GitHub Issue tracker and GitHub pull requests which we just established a process for. Please make sure you submit your feedback in the following format - we even made a copy/paste form for you to save you some work.

When submitting feedback for the engine build, please make sure your reply to this topic is formatted like this:

Code: Select all

Title: [TOOL] - Gist of Problem/List [list][b]OS:[/b] Windows 7, 10 etc. [b]Build:[/b] as shipped, or compiled from GitHub? [b]Version Number:[/b] Exact version number: (e.g. A.B.C.D)[/list] - Additional relevant info, summarized, see below for options to include. - Exact steps to reproduce the error, if you are encountering a bug. Attachments if applicable: DxDiag Crash Report/LogFiles Image of Error notification
Never just post the contents of a DxDiag or Crash Log File into a post! Attach it to the post as a document instead. Use the Spoiler tag to hide massive lines of code etc. so forum pages don't get cluttered.
Image Another thing: If the engine / sandbox crashes, and the crash reporter pops up, please provide additional information about the problem as is recommended. Just let us know what you did before the crash. It helps us a lot to identify issues quicker.

For additional information, please kindly review our 'How to submit Feedback-Guide' before posting to make sure all the information is validly displayed and communicated to our engineers can process it well.

Thanks for helping us improve the engine, guys! We couldn't do it without you. Have fun testing and keep those bugs coming until we get them all,


EDIT: This is the build feedback thread, if you want to have a discussion about the 5.4 release or its features, please move your conversation to the announce thread, thanks! Please help us keep this thread tidy so our engineers can go through your bugs and issues with ease.

Failed to install files. Make sure 'Adobe Photoshop' is closed before running the installer. Error: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\Plug-ins\File Formats' is denied.
I was able to workaround the problem by:
  • 1. Manually creating the File Formats directory in Windows Explorer.
    2. Giving the Everyone group full control of File Formats directory.
    Modified directory permissions

Title: Wrongly rendered HDR Debug info
  • OS: Windows 7
    Build: as shipped
    Version Number: 5.4 Build 164
- HDR debug info was rendered twice with different font size and overlapped.
HDR Debug Info
DebugInfo.JPG (33.53 KiB) Viewed 2829 times

HDR Debug Info seems that it doesn't provide correct value, can anyone re-check that?

when you active HDR Debug, sometimes it vastly drops FPS, please re-visit this issue.

Re: CRYENGINE 5.4 (Major Release)

Title: Level Explorer improvements
  • OS: Windows 7
    Build: as shipped
    Version Number: 5.4 Build 164
You have to double left-click(or middle-click) on object's name in level explorer to let property panel focus and then you could perform editing, this automatically involves an additional "goto" action. i think this makes things a little bit tough/inconvenient when you're editing your scenes. i think the property panel should reacting instantly once you perform a "single click" on object's name in level explorer panel and don't do automatic "goto" (we already have "g" to perform this).

caused by self ignorance
tick "sync selection" could save my soul.
