Greetings.

I got a question. Why we can't use the prefabs in jackhammer? Also want prefab factory and support in new version.

Regards.

Prefabs are not implemented yet, sorry.

There is something wrong with the interface. Whatever I do, create brushes, adjust them, scale and so on, nothing updates to the other three screen which are those grided overviews from the different angles. I'm trying to run it as an administrator and changed compatibility to Windows 7/8. I'm using Windows 10, and I didn't have these problems before.

Is there any way to make it work as it should be? It is impossible to try to create elements when nothing happens on the interface, not even numbers update, I just tried to blindly put values when making arches, but it didn't recognize I tried to type "84" not just "8" etc.

Any help is welcome. I couldn't find any support email or side where to post about these issues, and I really hope this could be fixed rather quickly/easily. Should I start using virtual machine just for this one program*

Windows 10 is supported, JACK was tested and should run perfercly on it. You don't need a virtual machine for it. Do you have the latest video card drivers installed?

My computer is brand new, there shouldn't be need to update drivers, right? I just got it. I will give it a try, and see whether or not it starts runnning smoothing*

My computer is MSi GL75 6QF and had GeForce GTX 960M video card.

Edit: Even GTKRadiant editor works on this computer without any issues.

Please try to uncheck "Draw camera" option in Settings, 2D-Views and tell whether it helped. If not, please record a video, so I can see the problem in details.
Btw, that's real life. :) For example, I can't run Source SDK's Hammer on my machine because views are black and are not redrawn at all. But Radiant and JACK are ok.

I can't get any respond when trying to click tabs in toolbar. I managed to open options but couldn't open other pages in it "2d" page, tried to click that. It seems like it doesn't get mouse position or something, it also doesn't give that hovering effect when.. well hovering interactive parts of the interface. The thing is in interface nothing updates. Hopefully it has the driver issue, I am now trying to install driver I just found from MSI support web page.

After installing just the video card, issue still exist. Maybe it has to do with something else? When it comes to system/update/technical issues, I'm pretty much noob in that area.

No, this doesn't look like driver problem. It looks like a deep problem with the operating system, or particularly with Qt framework. Never heard of such a problem before...

Is there way to modify/change Qt framework or do changes to the code or something, I have no idea what that is even. In a meanwhile, should I try to use virtual machine, or might the problem still be there*

I just have to say, that I prefer using this program over GTKRadiant/Hammer Editor, it is just my personal favorite when it comes to brush architecture.

I don't know is there any way to fix the issue. You are the only person who experiences a problem of such kind so far.
Is there a problem in the previous version, 1.1.855?

What about version 1.0.155, the earliest available?
By the way, didn't you install a 32-bit version of JACK on a 64-bit OS? This can also cause issues.

Hotfix version: 1.1.1064 (replacement for 1.1.1058). Fixed two bugs, one of them is severe. Update is strongly recommended!

Static libs are evil if you implement a factory registering classes in ctors of static objects. They simply won't be constructed. Use dlls.
