    Newbie : Template previews won't display / run

    Hello.
    I'm a total newbie to all this so be gentle !
    When I open Buildbox, I eventually get the display of multiple templates, all of which move when I mouse over them.
    Double clicking one to open it works but when I click the play button on the top right area, the game window opens but I can't seem to see any gameplay. Eventually it will time out or the char will die and I get game over.

    Hi, could you please check if the camera position is causing this issue, you can test this by putting several other objects in the scene and see if nothing is displayed on the preview window or some of those objects will start to appear now

    I have tried moving the camera position, screen res, % up and down and still see nothing.
    I tried the totally new game and get the basic start with the Buildbox logo and "your logo" option. Even that doesn't show anything.
    Some previews show a brief movement and then I get a game over.
    The game frequently crashes and sends error reports. Would they say that my machine is missing dlls or apps etc. ?
    I usually ditch stuff I cant get to work due to errors but having paid a lot of money, I want this to work.
    Thanks for any further help.


    I try to preview ISO CAR and it crashes and sends an error report.
    What does ISO CAR need to run ?
    This might help me learn whats wrong with my setup.
    I had it with the earlier BB3 and now the very latest BB3

    How do I know if I have all the resources loaded in BB3.1.3 ?
    The templates run as line drawings in debug mode. When running normally, they are blank.
    Can anyone make or direct me to a very basic completed BB3 exe that I could run. If this runs on my machine, does it suggest I should see objects within BB3 ?

    Thanks

    Surely some wiz behind the coding of BB can help me resolve this ?
