Stellarium CRASH

Recommended Posts

Hi - anyone know what's occurring with Stellarium? I've been running it for a year or so with no issues, but as of today it won't run on any of my laptops. I've tried reinstalling (several versions) but to no avail. Splash screen loads then it opens normally, but within a few seconds it crashes.

Yep, I've tried running it on a number of PC's, and even though it 'starts', it takes ages to open, but then just sits there totally unresponsive and unable to do anything, even with a clean install (20.0.2) and no add-ons.....

I tried downloading Stellarium umpteen times on my laptop and it never loaded properly, always had parts of the screen blank and the image swirled around uncontrollably so I gave up.

I now just use SkySafari with no issues at all, it's really good. :)

Well some success, try running it using one of the other 'configuration modes', e.g. Angle Direct3D 11 mode, Angle mode, Mesa mode etc.... 

If any of these work, you'll need to update the default start link to match, so that you don't waste time with the default....

I have to run Stellarium in ANGLE mode, due to a rather poor graphics card.  

ANGLE seems to be the least demanding of the PC's hardware.
