View Full Version : Lightwave 10 crashing

05-29-2011, 02:02 PM
Using Lightwave 10 Build 2067 (Win 32) on an
AMD 3200 Windows XP (sp3) 1 GB ram
Nvidia GeForce 7800 GS

ALL hardware and OS updates have been applied.

Getting: "A critical error has occurred, create a crash report?" When rendering with preview active. Seems to happen when using motion blur. Several other things are happening that are strange. When I set the MB type to photoreal, I'm unable to switch back to classic mode. On a completely different machine, I'm getting the same error on object load. I've deleted all the config files and checked the content paths, but nothing is helping.

can you not download the latest build and try that ? 10.1 perhaps ? as for it crashing could be numerous reasons , also your rig has 1gb ram and it will struggle a little .

I had several problem with lightwave crashing. One of the problem i found (you could find it strange) was K9 web protection causing crashing all the time. Check if you have firewalls and other apps monitoring the system. Crashing could also occurs if you use GLSL. Try use multitexturing instead.

I played with Skytracer - and LW (last version) crashed and crashed.
