Crashing when I try to "Play from Here"

After the Titan pack and the patch associated with that, I've had some major problems with the Editor. And by "problems" I mean problem, but it's a big enough pain in the ass that I'm counting it as multiple.

Basically, when I right click somewhere and try to "Play from Here", the Editor crashes (specifically, a message comes up saying it isn't responding). I'm not 100% sure if this also happens if I put a player start in the map and then try to play using the player start, but I'm guessing it does. I'll test when I get home this afternoon.

So does anybody have any idea what is causing this? I have all my drivers updated, and I've tried every fix I can think of, barring reinstalling (which I'd like to avoid, if possible).

Assuming you've tried deleting the editor's .ini's and your map has a proper gametype prefix, try going into the autosaves folder and deleting the uedpie saves.

Something else to try is hitting the save button right before you try to play it (even if you just saved or even if it's a stock map where you "bumped" something (don't worry, the editor won't overwrite stock maps, it'll just save a separate copy somewhere).

So yeah, always hit 'save' before trying to playtest (even if you just started up and haven't even made changes!)

Interestingly enough, the saving thing worked! It turns out that, after I patched the game, I needed to open up my maps and re-save them in the patched editor. Who would have thought it would be that simple. Thanks for the help!

you will also need to update the cooker if you have not already, epic forgot to include this in the patch.. I have a thread here that includes the fix.
Also be sure you do a full build before you go into game mode. Sometimes when you open the file then go to game mode before a build it crashes.

Whatever beat that drives the impulse, whatever tune that
