Ever since I accidently SAVED Preferences (my finger slipped on the mouse), I've had a problem loading tS6.6. It's funny, I didn't change any of the Preference settings they were just the default settings. So it's hard

to believe this caused the problem... But I think it did....

Every time I load tS6.6 the layout display comes up solid GREY! There is

no GRID, no little LITE BULBS, no widget in the corner. The TOOL ICONS

look FINE. If I select one and the tool stack comes up, it stays frozen up.

If I load a primitive the grid appears right around the edges of that primitive

and tS slows down to a stop...

If I go to the bottom of the interface and close the tS window which

brings me to the Microsoft desk-top, then open the tS window back up from

the desk-top tool bar tS comes up FINE. If I close tS and reload .. it does

the same thing SOLID GREY layout display. Also, when I first load it and

it comes up solid grey if I go to the library and load any of the other pre-done

interface settings like the default CAD or one of the 3 window views it switches over fine. If I close tS and then reload, it comes up fine (the way I

left it). If I go back and select the Default layout (which is basically what

I use) it comes up A O K. If I then close the app. and restart it AGAIN

SOLID GREY layout display.

The are 5 files in the tS dir. that periodically get up-dated. I think I might

have a problem with my truespace. tsp Start-up file.

The other files that get up-dated are the truespace.cfg-cfl-key-prl..

I noticed after it first happened these files had been LAST MODIFIED the

date and time that I had accidently saved Preferences. Its funny because

they have been up-dated since and I STILL have this problem about 80% of the time...

Whats the best way to fix? Also what does tS do when it starts up...

You could try deleting all or those files that get modified. When you start trueSpace they will be recreated.
Same for tS7.6
