as far as I know we did not yet test Win10.

Please try the normal advices:
- update drivers of graphics card
- re install GIANTS Editor

If the error remains, please have a look at the log.txt of the GIANTS Editor, check it for error messages and eventually post it here.

I'm running windows 7x64pro and windows 10x64pro. On my windows 10 system I have to run GE in compatability mode. I believe the issue is with the new hard drive format. Windows 10 doesn't use NTFS format. Have same issues with other program. Do as Emil says, update drivers and reinstall GE. I'm not sure what version of windows 10 your running, but check to see if it allows compatibility mode. If so, then run in compatibility mode. I run it in windows 7 compatibility mode. Though most of time I'm still booting into windows 7, so no issues there. Hope this helps.

for me the compatability mode (win 7) helped a lot. BUT(!) the perfomance with win10 is very low.

tested both version with win10 - 32/64bit version of editor.

the 64version in compatability mode still crashing - only the 32bit version works

please fix it! :-)

I have to agree with frank, Giants need to test the editor in house on Windows 10 especially the 64 bit version of the editor.

Only the 32-bit editor works for me.

No updates or a new version of the editor since December 2014, are we going to see a 6.0.4 version in the future?

Sorry, but I think Windows 10 isn't a good workspace for programming. It's just too technically oriented on smartphones and tablets. I think it isn't as good as Microsoft promised. I tried it for one day and made a rollback to Win 7. It's just the better Windows...

Why would you expect Giants to fix this? (it's not there fault) Win 10 is still in developer mode, duh

Master Saygo (Unknown) 09.09.2015 22:42
windows is always in developer mode. Finished to them means they added all the eye candy and now it's time for the general public to beta test it for them.
