    Hey there, is this on all projects you preview? What graphics card does your system use?

    Ok this is definitely something specific to your set up. That card is a 2008 graphic card and end of life so it unfortunately cannot be guaranteed to work with Buildbox. It looks like it may not support OpenGL 3.1 and other issues are afoot. Would definitely recommend a more modern graphics card for game development in 2020.

    Hopefully this clarifies.

    I had the same issues or similar at base and I followed this steps:
    - Go to device manager -> display adapters and uninstall Nvidia GeForce drivers (right click->uninstall)
    - Then with Display adapters being selected right click and scan for hardware changes
    - After install, restart your laptop and use buildbox as usual. this is a specific videocard driver issue and they can't do nothing about it since they started to support a newer version of OpenGL

    Let me know the results
