Whenever I try to start gmax, it cums up wiv ''Fatal error'' and ''interactive 3d render initilisation failed. Please check your device settings by using the -H command line option''. how do i fix it?
What this is is your computer isn't able to render the 3d model. What you need to do is go to "customize" then "preferences". You will get a pop-up window with a load of options. Click the top one that says "Viewports". In the bottom right corner, click the button CHOOSE DRIVER. Another pop-up window should appear with choices of HEIDI, Direct3D and OpenGL. One of these should already be selected. Simply chose another one. Go OK and then OK on the next window. That should fix the problem.
Where is the Customise option?
Third from the right in the top list (with file, edit etc.)

If you go to the gmax icon on your desktop, right click and go to properties. Then under target, add " -H" to the end without "s to make: "C:\Program Files\Gmax\gmax.exe" -H This time, the driver selector should come up with the choices of HEIDI, Direct3D and OpenGL. Again, one should be selected, so choose another one and go OK.
