Hi all, I purchased this program today, having been on the fence for a while. Downloaded and when I start it, the screen goes black and then nothing happens. I guess you know what question I have. (I noticed it runs x32 and I run x64, could that be the problem?)
Edit: I had placed the program on an external drive, when moving it to the hard drive I got one (tiiiny) step further. Now I see a blurred floating island occupied by an oak or some such. And there it stays, hanging.
Edit 2: All right, I obviously had to direct my dedicated graphics card to FlowScape. Now at least I get to the "front page", but clicking a button takes a very long time or crashes. I'll try on lowest setting, though I expected a GeForce GTX 960M to be enough--
--nope. Perhaps I'm just delusioned and thinking my graphics card is good enough, lol. I suppose this program needs a "Recommended System Requirements" notification somewhere.
Down to 800x600 and it kind of runs...
(Hopefully final edit, sorry!)
Okay, I've got it running at 800x600 and while it is slow when I hit menu buttons ("New", for example), painting/creating is going fast enough. Unfortunately it is not quite what I'm looking for, as Reddit would have me believe. I need larger landmasses (I want to do more "panoramic" scenes - my dream is to make a visual of "my" medieval fantasy city, but I need city walls, bell towers, domed temples, spires, piers, stairs, more different buildings for variety, etc. Basically less "battle map" and more "concept art", so I guess it's my bad for not realizing what FlowScape actually does) - or even smaller units. But hopefully this will explode and there will be lots more assets :) Thanks for the good work.
