What works

The progam does load up fine, and seems to generally function until you load up a new file or an existing map.

On further testing;

I was able to get the 3D window to work for about 2 seconds before the program crashed; this was reliant upon running the program with Independant Window Configurations turned on, and maximizing a single window in 3D Textured mode. It did allow me to rotate the camera around for a moment. I verified this by loading up a map file that came with the SDK, and it looked correct until the program crashed.

What does not

Viewport display. Seems to have a number of Child Window bugs. 3D viewports display black; if you minimize or maximize them, they sometimes bug out and the base editor window will receive the child window's scrollbars.


What was not tested

Any viewport editing.

Additional Comments

Likely a child window or opengl issue as discussed in bugzilla.
