KNOWN ISSUE: I just noticed that in this version No-Ribbon UI and new commandlines are completely broken. That means if you run with “-noribbon” or “-noweb” or “-nostartupweb”  will crash Unreal X-Editor on startup. A fix will be released soon. I apologize for the inconvenience.

[FIX] Windows Text blurriness

Recently i updated my Nvidia driver to 301.42. Since then i have this issue where Console Command text’s, Windows Live text’s are blurred and difficult to read. I found that the fix is disabling Anti-Aliasing – FXAA in Nvidia Control Panel.
