I had so much fun on my mac using the wineskin version, (but it did have some interface issues). For a smoother ride, I loaded Mandelbulb onto my PC now expecting better results. Certainly no wobbly and hopping about windows anymore... but...
When I load (try to load) a demo m3p from the Open menu, the console window confirms Loading:BatJorge-Pong703 (for example) but the usual "Press "Calculate 3D" to render." notice DOES NOT appear, and if I click it anyway, nothing happens.

Is this a known bug? Fixable?

Windows 10 Home edition (version 1703)
Processor Intell(R) i7-6700K CPU@4.00Ghz
RAM 16 gb

running Mandelbulb 3D v1.9.1

that's strange... Maybe there's a particular formula -that's used by Batjorge in that piece- that you don't have in your pc.

No that was just an example, I cant load ANYTHING via the m3p menu at all! I click it, select a file, I can see it is accepted in the "console window" but no message saying i must hit Calculate 3D, and no change on screen.(works on mac)

Maybe you could download the program again (even another version), and make sure that the routes to the directories are all ok.

I've had issues with MB3D's interface disappearing in the past. It sometimes happens when I open the program one too many times. It's a weird bug, I'll agree.

My solution? Download it again. Some of the code might have become corrupted in the unzip process, which is usually the case. Try 7-zip instead of your built-in archive utility, if you aren't already.
If that doesn't work, I dunno. :D
