Just downloaded the demo of LW2015_2. Loaded a project from LW 3d 11.6.3 that uses fiber fx and as soon as it loads it crashes in seconds in this latest update. I've not bothered with 2015_1 as it crashed a lot so thought maybe update 2 might have fixed things. Sadly still not working for me. :oye: Anyone else have any problems like this?

Best not to load projects from earlier versions, there appear to have been tweaks which aren't backwards compatible.

FiberFx?

Which scene is this? (EDIT: Sorry, thought you meant some demo content from 11.6.3.)

FFX can be crashy, but this should really be sent as a bug report... it shouldn't be happening! Make sure you get this scene sent through to Newtek using your login account, you can send bug reports from there... it's dead easy!

ffx is never backwards compatible. Also don't use config files from LW11 inside of 2015.

I spent some of this afternoon loading up old FFX scenes from the old content in 11.5 into 2015 and they all loaded fine. Maybe it's a configs issue?

Half the time it is, yes.
