  1. ah ha, that's where it's hiding! good to know!
  2. Had tried that, and unfortunately it looks like the reset doesn't affect window position.
  3. Alt (option) 1 doesn't seem to do anything; I'm guessing that's the Windows equivalent of command-1. In the "View" menu, "Project Workspace" can be checked or unchecked and either way there's nothing there. (I've even tried quickly spamming command-1 on and off to see if I can see the flicker of a corner of a window somewhere.... nothing!) edit: Alright, tried one last thing... and it worked! I had been trying to change the resolution with A:M open, and it didn't do anything useful as the UI seems to still maintain the same size of the original resolution (parts of it bleed onto the second monitor). However, when I changed to 800x600 with A:M closed and then opened it, I got the Workspace back! Whew! After closing and re-opening A:M, it seems that the Workspace moves around on its own if it's not docked to anything. And if you don't move it back every time, eventually it winds up off-screen. Dunno if this has been fixed in a more recent version. Thanks for your help tho!
  4. Heya! Cracked open A:M (v17 Mac) for the first time in ages, and it seemed like something was missing. Sure enough, it's the Project Workspace! I think it must be off-screen somewhere, but I'm having absolutely zero luck getting it to show up. Tried all the usual tricks (changing resolution etc). I've poked around in the prefs and even done a complete factory reset (which unfortunately does not seem to affect window position). When I open a model or a project, all the other windows are here... but the Workspace is completely absent. Hitting control-1 (hide/show) produces nothing. Any suggestions? Is there a way to reset window positions (reseting form the Help menu, the Customize... menu option and deleting MasterPrefs.ini all don't reset them)?
  5. In answer to your question, no, I don't think there's an automated way to create what you're trying, sorry. I could be wrong, though, many of the users here have far more wizard/plugin knowledge than I.
  6. Fantastic default chor setup, thanks a ton! I had no idea you could change it. I went ahead and tweaked a few things, here's my version: 1) Got rid of extra characters. 2) Got rid of dialog boxes. 3) Set SimCloth default tolerance to 0.3 (something I've always wanted in my default chor!). 4) Got rid of 'kicker' folder. Default_Chor.cho Thanks again!!
  7. Great vids for fan bone basics; that's something I've never really played around with! Learn something new every day!
  8. Looks like that was just the "drivers" that got embedded in the file; those lines go away when I delete them (but still won't simulate in v16). How DO drivers end up in a model, btw? Is there a way to make that not happen?

  10. Hmm good to know. That's pretty much standard on the Mac; I honestly can't remember the last time I've ever had an actual error dialog. Only crashes.
  11. I see you posted a dialog box with your report as well. This might sound dumb, but... is that normally what happens in Windows? Those sort of errors just make the Mac version of A:M crash, we don't really ever get error dialogs.
  12. Not exactly a "simple" case, but I stripped the texture off a couple models and embedded them in a project: clothtest.prj.zip No animation, just static models with SimCloth. Simulating this chor in v15 works just fine, but simulating it in v16.0a chokes and crashes A:M. Tested a few different things myself (deleting embedded drivers, making new cloth materials from scratch), no luck.
  13. hm, made a quick test from scratch and it simulated fine. let me test some stuff specific to the model quick.
  14. I'm having difficulty getting cloth to work - at all - in 16.0a. Simulation always creates infinite collisions, no matter how low I have the threshold set. Loading the same project in v15 makes the cloth simulate perfectly fine. Submitted an AM:Report, anyone else having this issue?
  15. Yeah, I got that far, but I couldn't find the relationship itself anywhere (to modify its value). I went ahead and just deleted the relationships from the action and re-applied them in the chor. Thanks!
