Hello Neighbor 2 – How to Fix New Game Unreal Engine Error

I do not guarantee that it works for everyone, but for me at least it worked!

Hello Neighbor 2 New Game Unreal Engine Error Fix


When you start a new game, it crashes immediately after loading and displays an error message from the Unreal Engine:


  • e80fa0ab4537f7de07afaa894128f211


  • Unhandled Exception: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0x0000000000000018
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!FD3D12CommandContext::RHISetComputePipelineState()
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!FD3D12CommandContext::RHISetComputeShader()
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!FRHICommandListExecutor::ExecuteInner_DoExecute()
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!TGraphTask::ExecuteTask()
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!FNamedTaskThread::ProcessTasksUntilQuit()
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!FRHIThread::Run()
  • HelloNeighbor2_Win64_Shipping!FRunnableThreadWin::Run()

But you can avoid this by following these steps and you also need Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker.

Install Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker


How to Use It

  • Start the Game and the Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker.
  • Then open the Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker and where it says “Process to inject to” click Hello Neighbor 2 and press “inject DLL”.
  • Go into Hello Neighbor 2 and press the tilde button twice “~”. you should get a transparent black box that covers half your screen. You can also change the keys to open the console.
  • Type “nextviewmode” and you should get a message in the console saying “Lit_DetailedLighting”. Everytime you type “nextviewmode” it will switch the in-game lighting.
  • Keep typing “nextviewmode” until it says “Unlit”. It’s going to mess up the game’s lighting but this is the best fix to play Hello Neighbor 2!

Back to Normal!

  • When the Cutscene is over try one more “nextviewmode” it says “lit” and everything will be normal!

You can close the console by pressing the same button which the console open.

Btw I first playes through the Peterson house with the Unlit settings and then changed it back again before the first night in the museum (where you take the shovel).
