So as state, while editing a project I am unable to view it with the play button. I can press it, or F5, and a window shows up, but it’s invisible to me, and i can’t interact with it other than to close it. If I play my project from the project selection screen it displays and works perfectly fine. I was just wondering if there was any fix to this. It’s slightly inconvenient

are you on Windows?
any message from terminal?
you can run editor in cmd to see better error message.

Yeah, windows 10, it’s not displaying any errors, the window/game opens on my taskbar, but it’s not visible and I can’t interact with it.

Your problem is clearly something related to your project, or your installation, because I can play the project I’m editing just fine by pressing F5. You need to add more information on the question, that can give a hint about what is going on in your case. Did you try the example projects? Did you try to create a new empty project with just an empty scene and see if it runs?

I did indeed try an empty project with an empty scene, doesn’t run.
I don’t know how it could be a problem with installation, as far as I was aware, the program is self contained and didn’t need installation? Idk how it could be a problem with the project if it runs and functions completely fine from the project selection hub. Just not when it’s open to be edited. And this is all with an example project. I’m not sure what else to say unless you guys want my PC specs.

in the Project Settings:


I had already set a main scene. Like I said above, it works fine from project selection. But not while I’m working on out. But just to be clear, the problem is not that a scene isn’t set, I assure you the main scene is set.
