UE 5.4

The SpectrumRibbons might produce artifacts when the SimTarget is set to GPU and the ribbon renderer is used. This can be fixed by changing to CPU mode. This seems to be caused by a change in the ribbon renderer so this will likely be fixed with future updates.

UE 5.2

* This is fixed in the current 5.2 build*

It seems that audio reactive niagara systems can currently not be used in UE 5.2 due to a bug. See this article for more information:

UE 5.1

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.
