Max 2013 Crashes
show user profile  laffyseviltwin
Anyone have advice on how to streamline Max2013 so it won't crash so much? I have had it crash at least once every time I work in it, seemingly for no reason at all (most times I am barely doing anything. Most times is it when I am doing something like modifying a UVW Unwrap or a FFD modifier, but it has occurred when I have simply exited the edit mode for a mesh or modifier.
My machine specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 2.39 GHz
Memory: 3.00 GB
32-bit operating system
Graphics: NVidia Geforce 9800GT
The display driver I am using in Max is the default (Nitrous), if that helps.
I usually run it with only Photoshop and Spotify running, but it happens even when I am not running other programs.
Any other information I need to give that might help, just let me know.

unless you can identify a specific thing you're doing at the time it could be literally anything. Personally i'd switch to a 64 bit os, even if you do only have 3gb of ram since max's development focus has been shifted to the 64bit version long ago and its generally regarded as more stable.

2012-64b has been the most stable and reliable build/release in my experience.

If moving back isn't an option - be sure to have the product updates and service packs installed for your current version.

Hmm... guess I can't do 64-bit without the hardware, and can't really do that now. I'll look into the product updates/service packs for sure. Thanks guys.
