Troubleshooting


Audio reactive niagara systems can not be used in UE 5.2 due to a bug. You need to upgrade to 5.2.1 for it to work again.


In UE 5.1 that prevents the effects from being used in a packaged game when async loading is enabled. it is recommended to use UE 5.0 or disable async loading.
