Has anyone had problems getting a new license from Worley for Fprime after they changed to a USB dongle:

send us your receipt, get newtek to contact us, do this, do that.

It's hardly bloody worth it. For vertibevel a simple email, no problem!

Worley, get your F'in act together, your plugin's are expensive enough without all the b'ullsh'it!

I didn't get that. I mailed 'em, said "check with Ben Vost to see I'm not scamming you" and got my new keys in under 24 hours.

I've got it now, ended up just forwarding the email that Ben sent me and said 'hope that's enough'.

Having some serious problems with nodes and Fprime though, hmmmm, node support in Fprime, don't think so.

that's no surprise, it's normal development. Newtek comes out with new nodes, breaks some stuff along the way. Worley eventually fixes it(not everything unfortunately though). I just got an email back from them saying they are waiting for Newtek to release the latest release which hopefully will provide Worley with the hooks to fix what's not working currently in Fprime.

Not all nodes will work in FPrime, the preprocessing ones can't since FPrime never preprocesses...

This is just relatively straight forward gradients in 9.5 release, not even 9.5.1

Gradients don't work?

Nope, I'm using a node surface that uses gradients for reflections and colour, just simple incidence angles and what I get is a silver object when it's supposed to be orange!
