Just discovered you can't have more than one instance of DR 2.1.0 open, because the camera view in the second instance shows up as white. And even after you shutdown the first instance the camera view in the second remains white.

This looks like a coding issue.

I can have three instances open without issues, at least the code is not actively preventing anything like this. It might be a problem if your video card resources are running low, maybe your first instance was running a map using a lot of textures?

 

Also, is there anything shown in the corresponding darkradiant.log file about not being able to create GL contexts?

  1. ah ok good.
  2. I have a GTX1070 with 8GB and 16GB of system ram running under Win7x64 - so will monitor closer.
  3. Will check, remind me where this is stored agauin and I am not seeing it in the root of the DR folder.

Ok, so just rebuilt the PC (I upgraded the SSD weeks ago and have been meaning to do a clean rebuild).

 

So will see if the issue re-appears.
