When i open GE it closes by itself. I have the x64 version installed. when i install GE 7.1.0 it works fine.. anybody have an idea? there is no errors in my event viewer, so i am stumped. It does give a Windows noise before it closes, its a warning sound like you did something wrong in Windows... running Windows 10x64

Found a problem in the following log file for Giants Editor, you can check yours aswell.
See for errors the editor log: {USER}\AppData\Local\GIANTS Editor ...\editor_log.txt

Turns out my laptop doesnt support OpenGL latest versions.. :(

It will not work at all if the graphics card (and driver) doesn't support OpenGL 4.5 (or upper).

I have the same issue, but last week the editor was working fine so it is not an hardware problem.

The 7.1 is working fine, I tried to reinstall it but it didn't help, if somebody have an idea...

1. Don't use cloud storage for user datas (eg. OneDrive).
2. Due to certain gfx settings the GE window might not open - in this case try starting the GE with shortcut, where you set "Run Maximized".

Mine quit too. I tried updating a bunch of things and nothing works.

Habe ein Problem mit den giants editor 8.1. Dieser lässt sich installieren. Wenn ich ihn öffne schließt er sich wieder. Open GL ist die neueste version drauf. Grafikkarte hat auch die neueste Version.

Bitte mir recht schnell helfen.

Vielen dank

Gruß Nicole

Have a problem with the giants editor 8.1. This can be installed. When I open it, it closes again. Open GL is the latest version on it. Graphics card also has the latest version.

Please help me quickly.

Many thanks
