Got a new PC. An Acer running a dual core Pentium at 1.8Ghz, 3GB ram, and a 250GB drive. Running TS 6.6 and it seems buggier than normal. I can't open up the materials windows fully and get some strange crashes. I know the 6.6 crashes but it also wipes my desktop so I have to reboot.

Much faster machine but a bit annoying at times.

You missed perhaps the most important detail: the OS!


If if is Vista, then you can except strange behaviour at times...:(

You probably need to run TS in Adminstrator mode. You can do that by right clicking on the icon and choosing "Run as Administrator".

I have Vista (64 bit) and trueSpace 6.6 and quite often have problems. The one thing that did help big time was changing the renderer from Direct X to Open GL. Since then it has been a lot more reliable.

I listed all my Vista problems during the 'Little Cloud' project and I am still having them but mostly in Vray. Just last night I tried to render a Vray scene (not too complicated) at 3200x2400 and it repeatedly crashed. I tried a few different scenes, rebotts etc. before I just gave up. This is an AMD X2 6000 with 4GB Ram and a Gefore 7900GT


Although it takes ages, my XP laptop renders almost without fail...:(


Progress eh?

yup...I got half a mind to wipe the drive and install a copy of XP on it.
