With today's free update on Steam, developers will have access to an all-new vehicle command set for building interactive cars and trucks with a physically realistic transmission model. Built-in water settings have been added in the editor to provide life-like water with the click of a button. Leadwerks Workshop, a one-stop shop for browsing and installing free game assets, is now more easily accessible with a visual interface built right into the Leadwerks editor. In addition, over one hundred small fixes and improvements have made their way into the new update.

The free trial of Leadwerks has been updated to version 3.4, and is now available for Linux for the first time, in addition to Windows. A 66% discount on the indie and standard editions of Leadwerks Game Engine is being offered during the week of the launch.

I tested and am unable to produce this problem with Nvidia, AMD, or Intel graphics hardware on Windows with the latest drivers for each.
