It's been a while since I used 3DHA 6.0 and I'm having trouble finding out why the display mode won't stay in "rendering" while I'm looking through cameras. As I'm walking through I have no problem and see everyting in solids, but as soon as I stop walking and move the cursor over or out of the screen, or simply click to change the color, texture, etc of an object, I loose the "rendering" mode and can see through all framing, furniture, details and such. I must have changed something in the settings a while ago without realizing it, and can't figure what. Can someone help?

Hi vibi,

I am not a V6 user, however, the issues you are describing are symptoms of a video card problem, independently of a program / version

Try these steps

1 - Check the website of your video card manufacturer and update the drivers

2 - Go to the video setup on your PC (may be different for different versions of Windows and video card); for most, click on an empty part of the windows Desktop, click on Settings->Advanced->Troubleshoot). Back the accelerations slider to the left, one level each time and see if the problem dissapears

3 - Right click on the wallpaper (look for a place without icons)--> Properties--> Settings--> Advanced--> Open GL--> Compatibility Settings--> Force 16 bits--> Apply--> OK

4 - Set your video color depth at 24 or 32 bits ("true color")

5 - Go to www.microsoft.com/directx, and see what version is current and check if you have this version installed in your computer

6 - Some NVidia card users reported additional problems--> in this case change the color settings from 32 bit to 16 bit

If you are using Win 7 look for Personalize--> Performance

Hope this helps
