On my system, Hexagon crashes on load, during the splash screen. How can I make it output a crash log so I can troubleshoot the problem?
You just gave us all the info you need. Your problem is right here:
Catalyst Control Center
I’ve used ATI in my systems for many years, and I’ve never seen a single advantage that CCC provides.
And oh BTW, it has a tendency to crash hexagon.
I advise people to remove it completely (I never install it in the first place), but if you’re uncomfortable with that there’s a tweak you can do on it that apparently stabilizes it for hexagon.
Unfortunately, I can’t remember offhand what that tweak is. It’s a simple one, involving turning off one of catalyst’s controls. It may be opengl or video acceleration, but I’m just not sure. I’ll see if I can find the thread where it was mentioned previously.
In the meantime, you can either uninstall catalyst, experiment with the settings I gave you or wait to see if someone who knows the specific tweak I’m referring to comes along.
The good news is that it’s an easy fix.
Turn of “triple buffering”.
This fix was mentioned as a possibility by Laschae in this post: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewreply/98146/
To which the user responded “IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disabling the “Triple Buffer” in the OpenGL settings of the CCC solved the issue!!!!!!!!!!!!”
