View Full Version : problems loading earlier files

I just upgraded to LW v 9.3 and I'm having trouble loading some of my older files from v. 8.5, 9.0. and 9.2. I keep getting an error message, 'unknown file format' when I try to load a file I created with an earlier version of Lightwave. Any thoughts?

Shouldn't be doing that .. if anything, it would be the other way around. ie files from 9.3 shouldn't load into older versions.

I just loaded an old object into Modeler and Layout and had no problems. It was from 1999, so I'm guessing around LW6ish?

Hm, that brought back some odd memories.
