I was going through the side scroller tutorial and, when it gets to the part where you add the bonus_star, as soon as the editor opens the system locks. I have to do a hard reboot. Has anyone else have anything like this?
I just tried side scroller tutorial and it worked fine. I’m on linux, but not on a Fedora. Does system crashes when you open any game object? It might be a driver issue. In that case you can try setting environment variable before starting editor, as described in FAQ.
Maybe you have some errors in logs (Help → Show Logs)?
I just tried it on Fedora, but in a virtual machine, Windows 10 host. Works fine for me.
Please supply logs if you can (see Vlads post)
Based on a similar problem someone else was having, I attempted to install the Nvidia drivers. But my laptop is slightly older and the amount of effort involved to even attempt to do this was cost prohibitive. I did try the trick in the FAQ but that didn’t make a difference. As a test, I ran through some other tutorials and every time I tried to open any game object, new or pre-existing, it always locked the display. I can ssh in and reboot, though.
Just for kicks, I’m going to try running the Win version in wine and see what happens there. If that doesn’t work then it’s VirtualBox, here we come.
Thanks for the assistance, though.
