    How did you figure out it actually froze? Building lighting really is that complex and can freeze the editor for up to a few minutes per internal build step.

      building lights

      thanks for the quick reply, i basically built one box put the light in and the editor froze , i even left it for at least an hour and thats all i did so surley one light wudnt take that long to build, also had a look at the maps that came with unreal see if i cud hav a look around them and this caused my comp to shut down
      do u reckon i might need a fresh setup see if that helps ?

        Two ideas:

        1) Try to clear the UT3 Editor cache (Documents/MyGames/Unreal Tournament/UTGame/Unpublished/CookedPC/) and restart the editor.
        Try to clear the autosaves too (Documents/MyGames/Unreal Tournament/UTGame/Autosaves)

        2) How many virtual memory do you have? I had a similar problem with that. Try to set the recommended virtual memory at least, even you should set more.

        Hope you solve the problem
