What's missing from my computer, the engine keeps crashing.

I’m new to game engines in general and I’m trying to learn how to use Godot. I downloaded the engine and opened it and the command prompt showed a bunch of errors before I even loaded a project.

Then, I tried to create a 3D project and the engine crashed. I downloaded the example project “3D FPP Interaction Template,” but when I opened it, I got this error and the engine crashed again.

Can someone explain to me what I’m missing? I’m trying to use the 3.1.1 stable x64 version on a Windows 7 computer

I’ve also tried opening a project using OpenGL 2 and it works, but after I save it and reload it, the engine crashes again. This has happened to me on 3 different computers. I’ve got to be doing something wrong, can someone please explain it to me?

Are there any graphics inside your game? Can you tell your graphic card and driver?

It’s only a blank project. I literally, downloaded the engine, opened it, created a new 3d project, closed godot, opened godot again and tried to load the project and the engine crashed.

Try opening the project.godot file contained in the project folder with a text editor. Does it contain the following section?



If not, try adding it manually – if there’s already a [rendering] section, just add the quality/driver/driver_name="GLES2" line at the end of the section.

I just tried that and the engine still crashes when I open the project.
