View Full Version : Legacy files? LWS6.1 to LWS9.6

Legacy files?
Can't seem to open some old LW6.1 or LW7 Scene files - they look ok in notepad but won't open in LW9.6
Was there a scene file change that I need to reload an older version for?
Or might I just have some corrupt files?

Older scenes should open fine. In what way won't they open, what error message are you getting?

won't opend in 9.6 it just hangs. I'll check the error message in the morning.

Long time ago with LW 7 or something there was a problem with the .LWS extention being writing - so from some files I have had to add the extention.

Just going back and looking to pool all my assests and rerender some older work not that it can be done in a day and not weeks. In doing so I have found some scene files just won't open - again details in a day.

Thanks for your time.

Looks like I have a very slow NTS drive at times and I have dumped some 4,000 object files in my catch all objects folder.

What I am getting is a "program not responding" however is I wait 5 or 10 min. is starts loading. If crash a time or two but I think that had to do with my trying to cancel out of what I thought was a lost cause.

Seems a number of the scene files dateing back to 2002 or LW6.5 are missing file extensions which was a problem until 6.5b came out I think.

Thanks again for your time your question put me on the right track.
