Hi,Ever since we installed SPB16.0 it seems Allegro/Specctraquest is working in slow mode. Has anybody experienced the same graphic problems? how to cope with this slow behaviour - any variable related to enhanced graphic needs to be disabled?Please help!Saad.
In 16.0, Allegro PCB Editor and other backend products were integrated with a new graphics engine (Open GL). The problem your are experiencing is most likely related to your graphics card. It may be necessary to upgrade the card however I would first recommend downloading the latest driver for it. For best performance, your graphics card should have a minimum of 128MB of Video RAM, 256MB would be better. There is a variable to disable Open GL which reverts the graphics back to what you were accustomed to in 15.x. Go to Setup - User Preferences - Open GL category then set the variable "Disable_OpenGL"
