I've just been working on a project in Blender (LINUX this time). I was using the builtin "wood" texture. In the "Map To" section, I turned it's size x, y, and z (I believe) properties up to "100.00" and hit F12 to render. It renders a couple of tiles and... *blip* and the Blender program disapears ...

My understanding is that there are two OpenGL drivers on a Windows (9x) system. OpenGL32.dll (Windows Client Library) A vendor-specific Installable Client Driver (in this case, nvopengl.dll). As an experiment, I renamed them both and discovered that Blender can function in non-realtime (e.g. not run...

I rendered a few things in Windows 98 with earlier versions of Blender (I think some in the 2.3x area) and I didn't have significant problems.

I'm disappointed that Windows 98 seems to be causing so much trouble. I don't really want to upgrade to XP, though. I'm on my Mandriva installation now, downloading RC2. At least maybe it'll work better. I held out on trying Blender on Linux because of all the hassle installing nVIDIA's Linux Driver...

I tried animating the spinning cube I mentioned above once using a static build of Blender 2.42a in Mandriva Linux 2006, and the programs just suddenly closed up on me, which I assume was a crash in Linux. I'm not against Linux. If I had more than a dial-up connection, I'd have done probably tried t...

Random crashes with Windows 98 SE

Until recently most of my work was in MS Paint or a tablet, but over the years I've played around a bit with Blender and fina...
