Whenever I open an m3p file from the M3Parameter folder, then Calculate 3D, I end up with the same fractal. I've been trying to figure this out for months. What gives? What is the trick?

I had Mandelbulb running on my Mac a couple years ago and this all worked fine, until a system update wiped out my ability to use it. So I installed Mandelbulb on the new Windows PC I built myself, and now I have this problem.

I see a few other postings online about this same problem, but nothing I do can fix this. How do I open parameter files other than the default one that loads initially??? I was about to give up completely. Is this a bug? How do other people use Mandelbulb?

Okay, I may have figured out a workaround: changing the .m3p extensions to .m3i and then just open them from the "Open m31" button. Well, I've got a lot to learn.

Got Mandelbulb 3D to work on my Mac in Mojave. I know what the trick is now, although it was something of a desperate series of clicking around, so I'm not 100% sure: deselect GPU processing in Wineskin (I'm on a 2018 Mac Mini). I'm solving all my own problems I guess.
