Please post here all of your reports about bugs or crashes in SpaceEngine. Before you post any bugs, please follow these steps:

  • First of all, make sure you updated your video card drivers. This may solve 99% of all isues.
  • Read the Fixing common issues section below. It is possible that your problem can be solved there.
  • Read the List of known issues section below and make sure that your bugs are not on in it. You can use your browser's word finder to help search the list.
  • If the bug is not on the list then please post it in this thread. Attach to your message a screenshot (if possible) and a log file (it's called the se.log and is located in the SpaceEngine/system/ directory). Only the log file will help us to understand your problem and find a solution!

    Fixing videocard-specific issues

    If you do not know which videocard do you have, open the system/se.log file in the text editor and read the Vendor information in the beginning:

    [MT] Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc.

    Then look for a solution for you:

    Nvidia: Major lag spikes

    Nvidia: Water missing on terras, clouds are below the surface

    ATI/AMD: Crash on approaching to the black hole, neutron star or white dwarf, on using ship's hyperdrive, or when enabling the Oculus Rift mode or the Fish Eye mode

    ATI/AMD: Crash on Startup on Windows 10

    Intel HD: Glitchy landscape and textures on planets

    Intel HD: Red clouds on Earth

    Fixing common issues

    1) Obsolete or incompatible drivers

    2) Weak system

    3) System with hybrid graphics (NVidia/ATI + Intel HD)

    4) Artifacts on procedural planets

    5) Frequent crashing while generating planetary surface

    6) Spaceship disappears when far from a star

    7) Blurry textures on Solar system planets

    8) Problems with very high resolution displays

    9) Problems in Windows 10 + AMD/ATI

    List of known issues

    Green items have been fixed for the next release

    Not real bugs, but effects caused by limitations in the engine:

    When I explore through large nebula, it sometimes causes my graphics display driver to crash, although not causing a blue screen of death. The graphics (APU) on my computer is A4-5000 (Kabini 1.5 ghz quad-core) with AMD Radeon HD 8330 (512 MB). Other than that, no problems with SpaceEngine. Could it be with the APU I'm using? I didn't have any problems on my old computer. I had hard disk drive troubles on my old computer, which is why i got a new computer. Thank goodness I got everything backed up.

    FYI: The APU on my old computer was A6-3620 (2.2 ghz) with AMD Radeon HD 6530D (512 MB). Never had any issues on this APU.

    I tried doing the Intel HD fix for a glitchy landscape, but I'm still getting the problem among other things like boxes over lens flares. Does anyone know how I can fix it?

    davidmegatron2096, Have you tried deleting the atioglxx.dll file in the system folder? It worked out for me.

    If it is in the program files folder, move it on another folder.

    Alright, this will be my first post on this forum. Awesome game, got it 2 days ago and have been playing around quite a bit.

    Now I am not sure if this is bug or something but I have this problem where the Orbital red circle for spaceships disappear randomly. Not sure if it is a bug or if I am pressing some button that activates/deactivate it. If it is some button I am missing please feel fre to move my post to the appropriate thread to ask the question.

    /Thanks in advance smile

    Halp, my whole solar system is not found! I added a bunch of galaxy mods but have no clue when I would have altered the solar system in anyway. If anyone knows how the catalog works or has catalog code for the solar system I would greatly appreciate it cry

    I have a problem I can not explain. Before, the system showed good day and night on the planet but since I added a star (however far (0.576 light years) and is a Wolf-Rayet) in this system, it appears more light is that I put too much of a star?
    PS: This is my famous Sanctsystem system and now has 15 stars in all and it is from Sanctsun it no longer shows the day of the planets.

    This system and the star :

    Edit :
    I removed 4 stars and it works be committed.

    Not sure if this has been addressed before or if its a bug, but if found a warm oceanic planet with life near a red dwarf. On the back side of the planet, which is land locked, its all land. I thought oceanics were supposed to be all ocean, no water. I know that it being land locked and all would make the back side a lot colder but the water would be constantly churning. I know that water can remain liquid in very cold temps from the movement and possibility of salt. I have pics aslo.

    When i tried to run SpaceEngine.exe in the system folder, i get this error. (see attachment)

    I have tried re installing it from a different mirror, and i still get the same problem.

    Wondering if there is a fix?

    Also i dont quite understand this error, never seen it before.

    Edit: had a look around in the forum and found the fix!
