Hello everyone
When i try to open GE it crashes right away and it closes. Is there any posible solutions?

Not with this poor info.
Post the GE log: {USER}\AppData\Local\GIANTS Editor ...\editor_log.txt

Did the GE work earlier? If so, what has changed meanwhile?
Are you using cloud storage (eg. OneDrive, Steam cloud etc.)?

The log tells you already
"Error: GLSL version 4.50 or better is required. Your version is 4.40"

The Radeon HD 5450 supports OpenGL only upto 4.4, but the GE8 requires at least vs. 4.5. You need a better gfx card.

Is there any possible ways to update it?

Bilbo Beutlin (BBeutlin) 26.11.2019 14:38
Yes - a new (better) gfx card.

It crashes stating I don't have OpenGL Version 4.5
My system >> DOES << have 4.5

Giants will NEVER fix this because they don't care.

What is a gfx card and is it simple to replace?

Bilbo Beutlin (BBeutlin) 11.01.2020 04:51
gfx = usual abbreviation for "graphics".
If you don't know what "graphics card" means, google for it.

I know its a bit late to reply now but this may help someone. FS22 GE editor 9.3 crashes all the time, I put my power setting to Performance and now can do all with it. Hope this is a help.
