  1. I had my retired brother who was in IT since the 80's take a look and he figured it out. I'm more of take a hammer to it kind of guy
  2. I believe it was the long file path name that caused it. Mapping the drive seemed to have solved it.
  3. Well copied all my files over to local c drive. I can open some of the mdl files but some crash AM. I cannot open any of the prj files without it crashing. Files created in the new version seem to open and save fine locally. Here is the error from the event viewer: Faulting application name: Master_64.exe, version: 19.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x6085510c Faulting module name: ucrtbase.dll, version: 10.0.19041.789, time stamp: 0x2bd748bf Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x0000000000071208 Faulting process id: 0x1b70 Faulting application start time: 0x01d78ec7bc4479ef Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Hash Inc\V19.0\Master_64.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\System32\ucrtbase.dll Report Id: 492b889d-88e0-443b-97e4-6935c1611945 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
  4. No dump file Tried running as admin and still quits. I can't even open or import files over from the nas or it dumps out. So for now I'm copying all the textures and models over to the local drive. Very strange but leave it to me to break something lol.
  5. Nas stays on if that is what you mean. I don't know why AM 19.p is the only program I have that poops out when saving to it. Benefit of the NAS is I can access files over my network from different computers, ie create a cad file on one, pick up the stl on another to upload to 3d printer etc. An external hd has to be mounted and unmounted and moved computer to computer. Is there a log created if AM just quits out without an error message? If so maybe I can post that.
  6. I can't even just save out a mdl, it just quits out. My CD version 15 saves over the network just fine.
  7. Thought I posted a save bug but not showing. I have my work on a nas drive and unable to save directly to it from AM. If I do try AM just quits out without any error report. Possible permissions bug? Suggestions to fix?
  8. Working on a gadget that offsets the weight and transfers the force to the root. So my thought is to make a sweep like this wire sample with bones as shown then see if it reacts like the real world object. This would save me time and give me options to fiddle fart with proportions and offsets etc. If you bend a wire as shown you will see how it can hang straight out, more force the more stable it becomes. Something used in rigging when lifting objects up buildings.
  9. Can you simulate cantelevers in AM with the bullet physics?
  10. STL files only support single closed mesh geometry. An obj can have multiple mesh's in the same file. So unless you can make the model in one piece with 0 errors you may be better off with an obj.
  11. STL files are good for the single continuous geometry. When there are multiple objects and shapes that intersect then obj files work better for some slicing software. I remember formlabs software that uses meshlabs would cause grooves where you may have co-planer faces on the prints. Other oddities was hollows where shapes intersected each other. Obj format it was repairable within the application. Anyways if possible just make a clean model without errors if possible.
  12. Hold down Shift+Control and this will bring up the install to install/repair it. Holding down just Control and launching the program will bring up a prompt so you can reset aspects to the program.I I have Open CL off in my preferences when running it on my i5 laptop with Intel HD graphic display and it runs fine.
  13. That is really sad news. Big loss, loved his animations and had a great style. My condolences to his family.
  14. That's a good deal on the licensing. Not sure if there is any path from AM to FBX, there might be some 3rd party utilities you may have to hop through. I stopped way back when they changed over to Maya for content creation.
  15. I had done animations a very long time ago for the Unreal engine. I used 3ds Max at the time and there was a plug-in to do just that. Not sure if you can import direct x files into the Unreal engine or not but you can look into Garagegames Torque engine. It is a little dated but last I checked it accepted direct x files. The Unreal engine isn't all that tough to work in but I found it unstable. Way back I used to make 3d models of my map bases in a poly modeler preferably one that supported quads, exported an obj file and used that geometry to subtract my map from the world. I believe the licensing for Unreal is pretty high if you plan on making a retail game.
  16. Does not work on my laptop at all, can only access the options in the calendar date drop down. Used to be able to do that prior to the last updates. I think that Windows programmers are dumbing down the systems so much they become cumbersome to get anything done. Sad day when the OS get's in the way of production. I would go back to Mac if their OS updates didn't nerf every program I purchase on such a consistent basis. Too bad Unix and Linux are so limted when it comes to programs written for them and driver support on harware is pretty poor.
  17. My favorite is Airplane Mode. What would we do without that option on a desktop? Also love the fact you can no longer search custom date ranges and to access basic date range you have to type in *.* in the search field to bring up the search options. Lastly my other favorite new feature is you can no longer selectively chose what gets updates so if you have an older video card that runs like @$$ with latest drivers it's tough luck. Yes that is on Win 10 Pro.
  18. I still have the 15 cd and it works ok on my Win10 laptop BUT it is not as stable as 19. Having both I would recommend the sub on 19 as it has better stability, much faster rendering and has some new features.
  19. I actually had a congo african gray (all black beak) and a timna african gray (tan upper beak). Congo had a mean streak, the timna was about the friendliest bird. not that it even matters but just wanted to randomly blurt that out. Most don't know there are different types. Cute story the timna picked up the door knock sound perfectly and the congo would hollar out Hello?!. Drove us crazy.
  20. I used to use Network Solutions but they sold out and are now one of the worst. Trouble is GoDaddy wants to drive customers to use their web based tools and those are pretty limited unless your making really simple sites and stick to their templates. Anything beyond that they want to sell development services. I just use them for email and have it for unlimited data which seems to have a limit as it hangs after 500 messages or so. Let me know who you find if you find a better host.
  21. I can't tell you how many times I yelled at them for screwing up my site and email. Those code kiddies need to stay off social media and do their jobs. Went to renew my domain and they expired my pw and didn't tell me. Hopefully I can just reset it without getting on the phone with those brats. Sadly not many good choices for hosting out there. I feel your pain!
  22. I use an i5 intel laptop here with built in video and the only issue I have is if I use any desktop scaling as it will make moving pallets look offset until you let go. The OpenGL on them is pretty good now and only drawback seems to be the shared memory.
  23. Sounds good but think I just don't have the enthusiasm to dive into this at this time. May change my mind and will let you guys know. Thanks for the invite though.
