The bug(s) in question - description
When opening a place in studio (any place), it either crashes 100% of the time with the standard crash message and the place cannot be accessed, or it mysteriously says that plugins failed to load and all the standard studio menus appear, but the game viewer cannot be used to see the game (blind), and upon closing studio, it states that it ‘failed to bind to workspace’
With this, I also discovered that I can also not play any Roblox game at all, resulting in a completely white screen when trying to play - or sometimes I’m greeted with a half-loaded skybox accompanied by a freeze shortly after.
The bug started happening today, and last night it worked fine. I already tried restarting my PC and reinstalling Roblox Studio, none of which resolved the issue.
I’m sure this is a PC problem, as my brother’s computer works fine.
Snapshots of the bug(s)
At opening place bar hitting 100% it just remains black and pops open the generic crash text. A new dump is created after each attempt.
When trying to play any game, the screen is just white and nothing happens, clicking the window makes it not respond.
CPU - Intel® Core™ i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50GHz
Memory - 8.0 GB DDR3
GPU 0 - Intel® HD Graphics 520
GPU 1 - NVIDIA GeForce 940M
My guess is that it has to do with my graphics driver of some sort, as I updated some of the drivers.
So today, I decided to check how things are working and found that heavier games crash me faster than those that are simple to load. While I cannot say for sure the rate at which I crash on the low-end game, I can confirm that within the first 30 seconds on the high end game the client just freezes and forces me to force close the game. Earlier I couldn’t even get into the game, freezing when the skybox is loading, and sometimes I get the general failure error.
As far as studio, it appears to do something similar in that studio crashes in a studio that is filled with more parts, models, etc.
