  1. I seem to have gotten the issue resolved on my computer. It was an issue with an updated version of the video card on my computer. Tech Support gave me instructions on how to revert to an older version of the video card and everything seems to be working great again now! I will just copy and paste my conversation with tech support here and you can see if you happen to have the same video card. If you don't, you may want to contact tech support yourself to ensure you get the proper version to get things working for you again - but hopefully this will get you on the right track at least. These posts start from the most recent so you'll want to start reading from the bottom. Hope this helps!! Support Answer - Katherine Kory Friday, Nov 10, 2017 - 07:54 AM PST Hello Travis, As I suspected what you are seeing does fit with this issue we've seen before and it appears to be bad drivers possibly in combination with Windows 10 updates starting in June from Nvidia. As a result, I would suggest rolling back your graphics card driver (for your 1060 card) to one from May (I would check in with Nvidia on the process for doing this as this goes a bit beyond the realm of our tech support department but you might be able to download the May driver and install it so it overwrites the current driver). I did take the time to find the May driver for you that should work but I have also included the manual driver search information below. May driver:" target="_blank"> To find the May driver I would go to this page and use their manual driver search (the options would be Geforce, Geforce 10 Series, your 1060 card, English, and All). The results will bring up a number of different drivers but the ones at the bottom should be the May drivers you are looking for. Nvidia Manual Driver Search Page: If after you do roll back to a May driver and you are still having issues, please provide us the latest graphics card information so we can continue to work on finding a solution for you. So far our customers with the same issue have not reported any issues using that May driver so it should work for you. We are still looking into a more permanent solution going forward though.

When you open Chief Architect go into Edit -> and down to Preferences. In Preferences in the left column click on Video Card Status and let me know what you have next to the following items: OpenGL Vendor OpenGL Renderer OpenGL Version Video Memory Driver Date Best regards, Katherine Technical Support Analyst Chief Architect
  2. Now that you mention that, I had a notification earlier this week that my computer had updated overnight, too. I have updated my submission to Tech Support to let them know this was a common factor for both of us - hopefully just a setting that needs to be changed from the update! Will let you know as soon as I hear something.
  3. I have also been having this exact same problem. It started for me just a few days ago. My program is doing the exact same thing and I have tried the same solutions. I submitted a case to Tech Support this morning. I will post what I hear back from them.
