View Full Version : Bug in LW[8] Scene Files?

05-20-2004, 10:48 AM
My scene files grow unexpectedly which slow down LW[8] operation. I noticed it took longer and longer to load my scene and I had not added any content or plugins to slow it down. The small scene I am working with tool about a minute to load, and I had terrible OpenGL updates, etc. I looked at the scene file with a text editor and saw 32 copies of:

"Plugin MasterHandler # WindowConfigure
(where # is 1-32)

I have seen multiple copies of other plugins also. I manually edited them out and the scene opens within 5 seconds without the redundancy, and Lightwave [8] operates screaming fast again also.

This appears to be a bug in the scene saver. The problem repeats on the very next save, adding one redundant copy of WindowConfigure per save. Any advice?

Same happend to me, the scene grew from 1MB to 64MB. I saved 3 times, the second scene was 13MB.
