So a few of my students were having a problem. They opened up the sample .blend file and the top of the logic panel was hidden. We could see sensors and actuators that were already created, but not the “add sensor”, “add controller”, etc. or anything above them.
Could this have been caused by them accidentally hitting a shortcut key? I’m not aware of any shortcut key that has this effect, but it would be useful to know. We managed to restore it by merging the panel into the “3D view” and then splitting it back into two.
Not sure if it matters, but the computers we use are about 3-4 years old and not optimized for graphics at all. All of our work is done in Multitexture mode.
