Hi,

When I launch 2021.96 I get a black screen that has the title bar but no menu, launch dialog with options, workspaces or anything else but a black screen, anyone seen this?

I uninstalled it and reinstalled 2021.96 with the same result of a black screen, reinstalling 2021.95 over the top of 2021.96 works as expected.

Thanks,

Andrew.

.96 still just black screen

any ideas when its fixed

Same here.

I'm just guessing, but it could have to do with the "AMD Polaris chip".

I tested it on my end, and FILE > SAVE AS works fine. Can you (temporarily) rename your MY DOCUMENTS/3DCOAT-2021 folder > Restart the application and see if that helps? If so, some .xml file probably got corrupted

Yes, purging 3DC config path helped with "File->Save As" and "File->Open". Thank you, @AbnRanger.

Frankly, I find this odd that a relatively new 3D Coat configuration gets corrupted so easily. I didn't change much in the settings. So the question is why 3D Coat's XML parser keeps corrupting files that it processes? For what it's worth, I updated Mantis report with a recursive diff of XML files from "factory" and corrupted config directories.

Of course, the problem with file chooser is not 100% resolved because selecting an arbitrary path in "Edit->Relocate 3DCoat's data" still crashes 3D Coat in the same manner. But I guess it's a subject for a separate bug report.

Also I got pretty big FPS drops down after some operations with layers like copy layers, deleting layers and other. And same FPS drops I got when I open big file after other big one. Actually not so big files, around 50kk tris at all, usualy my computer render it easy, but now sometimes I just have to restart 3d-Coat after some operations.

I see a big problem with having fixed scene scale in preference :

what if you have old projects with different scene scales ?
opening them and saving will break them, yes ?

If you open an older project, the project's scale will be used. Only the new scene uses the fixed scale.

Hello, today I got an extra dangerous issue, Coat completely lost all information from few layers. Luckily this information I found in some autosaves. But it's really scared me.

I have also experienced some layers and even file corruption. I dont know whats causing it, I suspect freezeing operations or volume painting

Thanks, now understood, we will fix it asap, very probably, today.

Hi Andrew,

I have installed .98 and it now launches, however I am now seeing a message at the bottom of the screen "The program data was changed, it is impossible to function correctly, please reinstall.".

I deleted the Docs/3DCoat-2021 folder and reinstalled but still get the same message, I have attached an image for you.

Thanks,

Andrew.

I will correct it asap, but now to avoid problems, delete python.dll and python39.dll in installation folder

Hi Andrew,

Deleting both python.dll and python39.dll stops the message appearing.

Thank you for storing retopo island colors !
What does this do ? thre is no tooltip for this image.png.66b78c034eaf4aae070af78b1b9bd37f.png
could the viewport NOT be grayed out when you do this ?

what is the last item in the changelog "fixed the "tiring problem when you bake PBR shaders from sculpt>paint" ?

Could there please be an option in preferences to disable the "graying out of the background to concentrate the attention on the dialog" ?

This is saturation randomizing. Ok, will not grey for pickers.

Tiring - if you bake shaders to texture cubemapping there was strange lines on the baked color texture. Now it is fixed.

Cool news about the first 2022 version, thanks! What's the best procedure to install it when you've already got 3DC 2021 installed? Deinstall 2021 and install 2022?

I think it would be nice to add a new language to the wiki manual, but can you break this into a separate page?

I'm using a translator to view it, but the two languages are mixed and it doesn't work properly...:(
