Hi,

Could you tell me which version of Pixel FX Designer are you running and what example did you try to load?

Hello! I am having the same issue with lots of old examples and new examples. I am using a 1050 ti and the problem started after I updated my drivers a few weeks ago. I did not mind but now it is also incredibly slow on some particle effects that used to run fine.  Pd I am using the steam version.

After testing it a little bit more, it just random crashes with different events. 

It crashes when adding or removing particles, also crashes when changing sprites with this message:

That sounds like the app isn't using your dedicated GPU (in this case 1050ti) but your integrated one, and that it cannot handle the particles as It should. Did it work correctly before updating drivers?

Hello, yes it did work fine. I went back to version 1.1.5.4 and it is working now I just had to redo some particles I had made, I am sure it is something else. Your other app (I think is yours) juicy pixel runs completly fine with lots of particles.

Edit : I just updated to the latest version again to make you a compilation of all the crashes, but it no longer random crashes, it only crashes when trying to load some especific old examples. For example the i_dont_feel_so_good file always crashes with this message.
Also 1.1.5.4 is considerably faster(5x times maby?), than the newers version, do not know if it is related.
