Fracture FX is currently incompatible with viewport 2.0 (which is the default in 2015), so all users using 2015 will have to switch the viewport back to legacy mode (renderer → legacy default viewport) to view simulator previews or any extra output from the break node (e.g. the the paths extracted from the crack image texture).

This will be fixed in the next version of Fracture FX.
