Why is it that Lightwave or Modeler almost always crashes on exit? I noticed this much more ever since I moved to an Intel Mac running the U/B version.

Not sure, I've run into that fairly often on the PPC version as well. I tend to ignore it though as nothing is lost... It irks me a little, but, eh.

Here too. The only thing 'lost' is often the last openned file is not in /load/recent/ ..

I get it about 80% of the time - I just ignore it as it's quitting anyway.

If a crash log is wanted, I'll see about getting one (not sure how at the moment though - never done it before!)

Have you guys tried deleting preferences - that always does it for me ( unless maybe I'm working with millions of polys and hundreds of mb textures; unloading a ton of ram seems to kill LW )

It append to me too.
Often with the CFM version and very often with the UB. (and with Layout AND Modeler)
I'll try to send a crash log to Chilton next time.

Unfortunately, it decided not to crash on me last night - maybe it knew it was being talked about :)

No need to wait for the next crash...

You can just open the /Applications/Utilities/Console app...
Then Click Show Log List and check ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter and/or /Library/Logs/CrashReporter for any LightWave, Layout or Modeler crash reports...

Then send those reports...

But there is a lot of crash in the list and I don't know the one that correspond to a crash on exit !!

But thanks for the infos. It could be usable.

Right, send them ALL to Chilton... Every crash report may have clues that point to a problem that needs to be fixed, not just the crash on exit... besides, that shows them just how unstable LightWave currently is on the Mac... and, Chilton eats them for breakfast... ;)

I have already send some of them.

But if Chilton eats them for breakfast, I don't wan't him to be hungry...

My Layout and Modeler are both pretty stable on PC. Crash on exit, about 1 out of 20? v9.3.1, XP Pro 64.

both PC and UB crashes on exit for me. I usually lose any setting changes.
