View Full Version : fiber fx very twitchy

07-03-2009, 07:30 AM
I have using the new FiberFX with some nifty results, but I seem to be running into a very nasty problem: Layout crashes when I...
load in FiberFX files to the FiberFX panel
do too many edits to the "edit guides"
update my model while layout's FiberFX is active
and a few others that I haven't figured out what's crashing it.
Since I have web email (not using Outlook Express or other local mailtool), I can't seem to send the crash reports "Send" and done do nuthin'. Grr.
I've done the usual stuff when I crash like this (regenerate all LW*.cfg files, reinstall), but to no avail. :help:

Before anyone asks, I forgot to add important details, like:
XP with Windows Update on, and LW9.6 Win32 build 1539.

Sheesh, I used to be senior SW QA at an FPGA company 2 years ago. How quickly we forget the basics!

Best I could suggest is to do a search here on the forums for ffx fixes. Right now, I'd say your experience is par for the course. :(

As for bugs, the web-way would be the best; has been for me. The feedback agent is nice, though.

Go here to see how to submit a bug. Or an irritation. Or even praise.

Definately par for the course unfortunately...

And you've played all 18 holes, I'm sure. Or at least have tried...
Doesn't take that much though to get thoroughly teed-off. ;)

Tried that one when you control some value via weight maps and when you change the map in modeler fiberfx just crashes! That's a cool bug too.
