When I click the preview button the previw does not work and here is an image-
im guessing that you have used a second monitor? Assuming that this is the second, you will find that if you plug in the monitor that you will see the preview window.
No,I use only a single monitor and when I first started Buildbox 3 I got a message that I audio drivers are missing and i have to install them which I did and the reason why the preview in Buildbox is not working might be related to this and sometimes my free early access Buildbox version also crashes when i click on the Asset Library button.
@Ai Creator if you did have the ability to add a second monitor, it would be good. I have heard/seen this issue a number of times and it’s always related to that same issue. If however it isn’t a monitor then we do need to narrow it down as much as we can. If you are unable to, please send a detailed email to email@example.com so we can try and figure out the issue so that we no longer have the issue
i had this problem before , try accessing it by the exe file path followed by a space and --non-pcf
( this is how it looks for me : C:\Program Files (x86)\Buildbox3\Buildbox.exe --non-pcf )
Thank you, it works.
What does this pcf mean? Do you know how to always open BB this way, not to use the run command?
@kwinchi I have tried this and this does not work for me and currently use Windows 10 and maybe I will need to install some drivers of Windows 10 to make Buildbox's preview button work for me.
Buildbox 3 is showing a series of numbers after I opened Buildbox by using Run,Can anybody explain to me what is this,I have posted an image of it below.
how to do that can you help , i am not getting preview
I clicked start menu, typed run than typed where it says open the path to bb3.exe followed by a space and --non-pcf (example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Buildbox3\Buildbox.exe --non-pcf)
It worked for me, but I have to do this every time
thanks i tried it but still getting black preview screen , did you made any changes in your system , i believe we interacted for graphics card for windows 7 laptop
I didn't make any changes. I have a very old PC
which BB3 version you are using
i've no idea what it means , i also have an old laptop support said they'd flag my graphics card in the next update so i wont have to do it everytime but looks like they forgot
i tried to create a shortcut but it would create one because of the spacing , how i do it now is past it into windows run so everytime i open it it's already there and i just press enter , it's faster this way
i tried to open below by typing in run , still getting the black preview screen , can anyone help
C:\Program Files (x86)\Buildbox3\Buildbox.exe --non-pcf
After troubleshooting Buildbox when ever i click on the preview button I get this image-,and Can anybody help me with this problem.
Have you already reached out to support? If not please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be more than happy to help
Yes I have contacted support and now when I run Buildbox this image is displayed,can you help me-
Hello I guess nobosy has the same problem anymore, but I share my solution anyway. What I did is this:
cd c:\program files (x86)\Buildbox3
START Buildbox.exe --non-pcf
This is a .BAT file that I have in the Desktop so anytime I want to open Buildbox with working preview I just double click it.
