Hello Fred,

thanks for your report. Can you please send us SpaceEngineers.log?

I ask those who made update 1.194 to select a bug with the display of the character. Do not ignore my request, I already paid for the DLC.

I as well am having this issue. Was fine before the new update today

Non-Modded

I have some questions.

1. Is the character invisible all the time? For example in the Character screen in Main Menu?

2. Did you try to change his skin? Or just uncheck all skins (helmet, suit, gloves, boots). It can help.

1. Is the character invisible all the time? For example in the Character screen in Main Menu?


Yes, Ive I tried the Character screen on the main menu. Ive also tried single player, a multiplayer server, and reinstalling my game nothing changes


2. Did you try to change his skin? Or just uncheck all skins(helmet, suit, gloves, boots). It can help.

Hello, thanks for your report.


Unfortunatelly we need more information to reproduce this.


In the meantime, have you tried deleting your shadercache folder and or mipmapcache files from SpaceEngineers Appdata folder?


The steps are:

  1. Use shortcut Windows+R and type %appdata%
  2. Confirm
  3. It should take you directly to Appdata/Roaming folder
  4. In there search for SpaceEngineers folder and open it
  5. Select the ShaderCache2 folder and any mipMapTextureCache* files
  6. Delete them and start the game
    If that helped, then please let us know, if it did not, then please send us your dxdiag and the spaceengineers log and config file.
    Both log and config file can be found in the same appdata folder.

Deleted both files multiple times and nothing has changed.

Thank you for your cooperation.


Can you please update to the latests drivers for your graphics card?


And you can get dxdiag by windows+r type dxdiag and confirm. A utility is going to be launched which gathers data from your computer about the drivers and various other things. You can then click on the button Save all information and save it as a text file. You can then upload the text file here. But please do so only after updating the drivers.

Drivers are updated

Hi guys,

we are still investigating it.

photo

I think it seems to happen for older drivers/video cards. For example, I use a NVIDIA Quadro 4000 and I can't see characters. Other players are able to see them just fine. As far as reproducing it goes, try popping an AMD Phenom II X4 945 Proccessor and NVIDIA Quadro 4000 into your computer and then playng Space Engineers.

Also deleting the shader files does not work. It seemed to make the game run smoother, but I could still not see player characters. Drivers up to date

photo

Yea if its hardware that's gonna suck due to I don't have money to spend on new hardware

photo

I feel like even if it is because of old hardware, we should hopefully get a bug fix otherwise they should have announced it ahead of time.

When will the problem be resolved

Footprints are still visible though. and the particle effects that footprints make

i forgot to mention, the game worked fine on the same computer before, up to the decorative update II.

the frostbite update is when the problem started for me.

same here

photo

Got that bug aswell :(

photo

oh meeen :c

photo

Same problem here ! the only thing i can see is the flames of my jetpack and my tools !tried reinstalling , updated Drivers and blablablaaa....nothing seems to work :P

photo
2

Same problem brother:D maybe they fix it but only what i recive is comment that i got old GPU lol

photo
3

they have the same problem since a week, and probably just for the minority with old hardware, so they dont gonna fix it, and the forum shows a large dev situation so... bye xd

photo
2

Same problem here. Is probably due to my old GTX 560. But worked fine two weeks ago.

photo
2

This problem appeared, but everyone writes that they have problem from first start with Frostbite. I went in first to SP world and i saw my char, but then, in same session, i went to my friend's world and recognise that i don't see him.

Tryed to reconnect, reboot models by F11 menu, reinstall game, update drivers and the tips I found here, but nothing helps.

Maybe it's iportant detail.

photo

On the playtest branch that was posted on here seems to be working now, I can see the Engineer again, but it seems to have been set to an older version of the game.

photo

So i can say this bug is two weeks o;d and still not fixed so i think i won't.

Be4 relese this game goy update every week now its busted,such disapointing

photo

I mean I wouldn't say its not going to happen, I mean before release they were split working on several projects but now they are focusing on SE alot more and are actively working on it. But seeing as it was working fine until this last update tells me its something with the player render that they changed, maybe for frostbite stuff or whatever, but I do know a decent number of people are affected by this issue and thats a decent size of their playerbase as a decent bit of Nvidia cards are affected from what I can tell.

well im on an active pvp server and it would be great to get this fixed sooner rather then later its incredibly hard to play with out the basics of seeing another person.

photo

16 days and there is no fix on the main branch perfect

photo

Yep they let it be and no fix so far.so people with older Gpu won't get it fixed its annoying but its just a bug like many other in this game nothing more

photo

According to the log your GPU does not meet the minimum requirements. Unfortunately, we do not test on configurations that include hardware below our minimum requirements.


This is why it was not tested, under these conditions, prior to release.


We are very sorry if this has caused you any inconvenience. This issue appears to only affect older hardware.

Regardless, we are still investigating this issue and trying to resolve it. We want to fix this issue.


Until we can complete our internal investigation of this issue we suggest playing on Branch 1.193.

Well it clearly isn't the GPU being screwed since before the frostbite update everything worked fine (so most likely something about the way characters are modeled was changed) and the latest hotfix has yet again not fixed this issue

King Of Claw you got right all work before Frost update,If they fix great if not it will be sad but its minor bug

@Space Engineers SupportThanks for the update. I can fully understand that the issue is the old GPU. Hope you can find a fix for it and keep up the good work.

Hey Im new to the game - just purchased it yesterday (08 April 2020). I can see my character. Thought its maybe an extra purchase, so bought the deluxe on top. I can see the golden gear in the create character in the gear selection tabs, but no character.

Is there a fix yet. Yes, I am on older hardware GT630m I think.

Please assist. Dont want to waste good money.
