    Hi,

    I'm trying to open FPSSample in 2018.3.0f2. It constantly crashes. I've tried reinstalling it through Unity Hub and Download Assistant, running it from Hub and classic launcher and opening an new empty project. Every time I get the same result.

    I've just reinstalled Windows on my laptop. It's an i7-6700HQ, 16 GB, GTX 1060M machine, running Windows 10, with the newest update and graphic drivers.

    Unity 2017.4f7 LTS works just fine, so it's probably related to this particular Unity version.

    Anyone had this issue and knows how to fix it?

    Are you sure FPS Sample is compatible with 2018.3? Unity 2018.3 has just gone out of beta.

    Do you have the same problem if you try opening it with Unity 2018.2?

    Do you have the same problem if you start a brand new empty project?

    I have seen Unity 2018.2 crash if you have DX12 enabled in the Windows player options. Try launching the Unity editor with the -force-d3d11 switch. That will force the editor to run in DX11 mode, which is stable. I don't know if that is issue you are running into. I just mention it because that was a problem I ran into when moving from 2018.1 to 2018.2.

    If you read my original post, you'll see answers :)


    I've checked Unity logs and that's what crashed.

    As I said. I can't open any project. Empty project doesn't work either.

    EDIT: By the way. How can I download the beta version? I can't seem to find it anywhere. There's only the stable version in download sections now.

    Thanks. I've tried installing it. Didn't help. Still crashes when I'm trying to open existing or new project with the same error. I've submitted a bug report of number 1110483.

    Deinstall Unity completely, then delete all what remains of its directory. After that delete the Unity folders that are in:
    • C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local
    • C:\Users\Username\AppData\LocalLow
    • C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming.
    Once this done, install the version of Unity that best fits the FPS sample project which seems to be that one: https://unity3d.com/unity/beta/2018.3.0b12.

    Then I suggest that you go to that thread and ask about FPS sample and Unity 2018.3.0f2. :)

    I had something similar going from 2018.1 to 2018.2. totally crashes, even empty projects.
    Upgrading Nvidia drivers fixed it. Was awhile ago and I forget the details, but thats all it took.
    (have a GTX1070 btw.)

    That helped! Thanks! After removing Unity from these directories the engine started after reinstall. It opened new empty project without any problems and is now importing the FPSSample.

    Both Unity 2018.3.0f2 and the b12 version works now.

    Thank you! Worked for me too! Must have been corrupted somehow.
