Yeah I have realtek drivers on Asus board...probably have armoury crate...I'll check when I get a chance.
Yeah, its random..doesnt do it every time either..and its independent of how much geometry is there (it will do it on an empty model).
Yeah, I wouldnt hold my breath...ive been reporting it for years, and theres been no movement.
I imagine its probably due to some rather ancient coding...or gremlins..lol
I checked out the thread you cited. Disabling the Nahimic service eliminates a number of Lightwave crashes that have been reported as Lightwave bugs. Interesting.Something odd is happening to Marander's helpful advice in this topic (and most everywhere else in this forum). It's vanishing. I understand what is likely happening but it is still odd. For full context of this Nahimic service issue, check out this topic with a few more options for dealing with it. https://forums.newtek.com/threads/163864
There may be a more persistent resolution by exempting LightWave from its influence in the blacklist file, mentioned in post #5.
That's the big question. I have not had any showstopping bugs since addressing the Nahimic service. I've tried to recreate some of the 2020 bugs reported by others but I've been unsuccessful at breaking my LightWave installation. It seems to be working fine for me now....LW 2020 has a reputation as being quite buggy & hard to use reliably in a production setting. Is it really still that bad with Nahimic disabled?...
I remember Nahimic being identified as a source of all sorts of problems that gamers were having on their gaming PCs. I think that was quite a while ago.That's the big question. I have not had any showstopping bugs since addressing the Nahimic service. I've tried to recreate some of the 2020 bugs reported by others but I've been unsuccessful at breaking my LightWave installation. It seems to be working fine for me now.
That is the problem with this Nahimic service incompatibility...its symptoms vary between systems.
In defense of LW, it should be recognized this is a universal problem with many other 3D apps. LW is not at fault. The problem has been reported with Substance Painter, Rhino and Houdini. Example: https://www.sidefx.com/forum/topic/51389/
