Strange graphical errors

I wasn’t really sure where to post this but General Discussion felt safe enough.

I recently installed Panda3D and have started the tutorial in the manual… but during the process of this tutorial I’ve experienced multiple odd graphical errors, most of which I assume are related to my outdated OpenGL. To give you some idea of what I’m talking about… here’s a screenshot.

I’m mainly just wondering if this is going to affect my projects. Like if I make something original… would this problem exist there as well?

you can try changing renderer: directX or opengl.
in panda3d\etc folder there is a file named config.prc, uncomment one of the two lines in the file:
#load-display pandagl
#load-display pandadx9
if you use Panda3D 1.8 or older version, you can also try: load-display pandadx8.

if all these don’t work, you need a newer display driver or device.

Please give more information about your Panda3D version, and your graphics card.

Which version of the SDK did you install? Which operating system are you using? Which drivers? Which video card do you have? Have you tried updating your graphics drivers?

Thanks for the help. :slight_smile:
I’m using the latest version. Switching to DirectX9 fixed the problem.
