New to GE 6.0.3 and following tutorials on loading a map. Able to open GE and start to open a file (map 01 from FS15) it starts to load map and just as the LH box populates with items I get a windows error message saying GE 6.0.3 has stopped working and closes out of program.
Anybody else have this error? What do I need to do to fix?

first thing you coudl try is to start the GE first and load the i3d afterwards.
There was (or still is) a situation where the direct loading does not work perfectly.
But we could not yet reproduce it.

Anyway, depending on your hardware you might not be able to use the GIANTS Editor at all.
e.g. laptops often have onboard graphics cards, which are not supported by the GIANTS Editor.
The game itself might run with them, though.

So, if your error remains, pleas epost your system specs.
OperatingSystem, CPU, GPU, ...

A final try worth might be to re install the GE, but make sure to delete its config folder after deinstallation: e.g.
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\GIANTS Editor 6.0.3

Thanks Emil
My problem will be the laptop. Game runs fine on it though. I tried downloading an older version of GE (5.52) and using it. I could open some maps but could not really edit them. Guess I'm looking for a desktop to build may map on.
