View Full Version : LW 9.3 does'nt like LW 7.5 files…

I just upgraded this week from LW 7.5 to 9.3
and discovered that I have problems loading lwo files
created with my previous version.

I first thought it could be due to some shaders
included in the surfaces (like Fprime) but it's not.

When it happens :
> the Modeler displays the message
"Error on object loading
Error encountered, keep the partially loaded object ?"
Then if I say yes the object is loaded but all surfaces
has disappeared, things like this.

> The Layout also displays an error message while loading
the Scene and when the whole file is loaded I see that concerned
objects are replaced by Nulls.

Those troubles don't happen with all files so it's hard to find out
where is the issue. Though I must say it happens on Mac AND PC
(Mac OS 10.4 / Windows XP)

help please !

OK seems I found where the issue is :
Both Modeler and Layout of LW 9.3 can't
open correctly .low file containing curves.

As soon I first delete curves in LW 7.5 before,
no more trouble to open files with LW 9.3.

At least that's what I noticed on Mac, guess
it will be the same on PC.
