I’m having bit of trouble with the game engine. I’m not sure exactly what is the cause, though. So, lately I have been downloading a lot of blends having to do with the bge, but my issue is that a lot of them won’t render correctly. For example; from the Blender Wikibooks there is a game called Frijoles. That game won’t render correctly after I begin the game engine. The entire viewport goes purple and nothing else will happen. This also happened with a few other blends I have gotten from the Internet (most turn black or only render some of the things in the scene but not all). The issue isn’t that I have gotten bad blends, because I’ve been getting them from reliable sources, but I think it is a different issue entirely.
I’m running blender 2.64 (I think. I’m writing this from my tablet in bed at midnight and don’t feel like getting up) on a decent computer (nothing special, but nothing I wouldn’t brag about). Am I possibly using a version of blender that is different in just maybe one line of code that makes it ever so slightly incompatible with everyone else’s or is it something else? Any ideas will help because I am completely lost.
