How to fix it if Hardware acceleration is off

Foundry requires Hardware Acceleration to be enabled in the Browser. Without it, nothing will work, you won’t be able to see any scenes, you won’t be able to unpause your game, and can get random errors (such as cannot read property "tokens" of null)

Step 1) Restart your browser

If it used to work and now it stopped, then it’s quite possible that you do have Hardware Acceleration enabled in your browser, but the browser lost access to the Graphics Card. This can often happen after a GPU driver update for example.

The first step we recommend is to restart your browser just to make sure that’s not the issue.

We will also always recommend to make sure your browser is updated to the latest version if you can, and we recommend using either Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox.

Step 2) Enable Hardware Acceleration

If that didn’t help, then you most likely have the Hardware Acceleration disabled in the browser, and you will need to enable the option.

To do this, it depends on your browser, please follow one of these links:
Chrome
Microsoft Edge
Firefox

If you’re using another browser, we highly recommend these once, as they are confirmed to work.

Step 3) Toggle Override software rendering list

Paste chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blocklist into your Chrome Browser, and toggle it.


Enable Acceleration in Chrome

To quickly get to Acceleration, you can just paste ```chrome://settings/?search=hardware``` into your browser. If it isn't on, you should enable it.

Press the three dots in the top right of the browser.
