Game Engine crash on new laptop.

Post by Shaba1 »

OS: Windows XP Home
CPU:AMD Sempron 3000+
RAM 256MB
Video Chip VIA S3G Unichrome

Blender 2.41 animates and renders just fine. ANYTHING to do with the game engine( P-KEY From the blender interface) causes a crash of blender but not a reboot of the laptop. I found on compiled blender made game HELICON4 from jrt. That runs fine.

Anyone have any solutions I would really like to use the GE.

PS: I have the latest drivers I coudl fine at the VIA web site.

you're not the first to complain about the combination of that graphics chipset and starting the game engine resulting in blender crashing.

I followed LetterRips suggestion in the News Forum and turned DOWN(not completley off) hardware acceleration and now the GE works. But web pages load slowly. I think I may need to keep it on high for my normal work and then just turn it down when I need to do something in the GE.
