Windows 10 Problem?

Windows 10 Problem? Empty Windows 10 Problem?

Mensaje por lefty2000 Mar 10 Ene 2023, 18:26

Since I bought a new Windows 10 machine a few years ago, I have been running "The Movies" without any problems.  Within the last few months, I discovered that all my set mods that I have installed no longer work in the game.  When I attempt to load them, it appears the mesh is invisible.  The actors and props appear as they should be, but there is only a blue background.  Looking back at movies I made using modified sets, it appears that the last movie I made using a set mod was september 27 of last year.

It appears that the game cannot "see" a set msh file that has been installed in the ~data/meshes folder.

I have found a work around for this problem.  Removing or modifying the "set" prefix to the name of the msh file causes the msh to be loaded successfully and the set becomes usable again.

This is not a totally satisfactory solution, however, because some features such as lightmaps and weather effects no longer work.  It appears that without the proper prefix, the game engine cannot locate the required lightmaps of weather effects file for the set.

I suspect, but cannot prove, that this problem is caused by an update to windows that occurred sometime in the last few months. I also have a laptop that has windows 10, and it started doing the same thing at about the same time.  That is why I suspect it has something to do with windows 10 update.  I have a lot of theories, but no answers at this point.  

I would like to know if anyone else is running "The Movies" on windows 10 and if they have been experiencing similar problems.

Hello lefty2000,

Do you mean the game doesn't load SET meshes? or also PROP meshes?

I remember I had something similar with the sets that was related to the prefixes. For example, I'm more like "bluescreen.msh" than "set_bluescreen.msh" and with this process the game could read the file but never loads it. The problem is I shot a movie in a bluescreen set and after that I just switched the mesh, after that I lost all I recorded because the game didn't load the mod anymore. It was more complex from what I explained, but it looks pretty similar.

The problem I am encountering only involves "set" meshes.  Props, costumes, all work fine.  Were you using windows 10 when you experienced similar problems?  I am trying to determine if the problem is related to windows 10.  I have an old windows 8 machine and everything works fine there.  All set mods work as they should on my windows 8 machine.

I do work with windows10.

The last common issue within switching Windows version happened between XP and Windows 7, where in the first you could modify any msh file and re-save them in same locations and the game would instantly update it without need to close and start again.

Yet you need "set" prefix to load weather and lightmaps, but for some reason it doesn't load for you. This was my case:

Windows 10 Problem? Sets10

From MED sets I do have, the original ones that come with the game have their normal names (eg: Suburbio, baño 2). All modified ones are "set_" except "0regolerobs" that I made withouth prefix and with the number to load it faster (without need to scroll down from the list).

This is displayname 0regolerobs over a mesh file "set_regolerobscreen.msh" contains empty mesh:

Windows 10 Problem? Sets11

But when I open the game 0regolerobs loading that mesh it loads this:

Windows 10 Problem? Sets12

Since this moment, I concluded the best way to work is using the bluescreen as a prop set mesh, because apparently every modification we do in naming/set just crashes it. Like when you remove the ANCHOR in Blender and there's no way to uninstall the set in the game. Using a propset in which you can load shadowless floor shall work properly, you just need an empty set like originals from the game so you can load weather, but I didn't mean to use lightmaps neither weather as I can adjust them lately in postproduction.

It also fixes some other troubles like shooting a scene with attached props (fire, weapons, explosions, FX) with no shadows on the screen except actors.

Recently I found that doing a clean install of The Movies would fix the problem I was having. Apparently the problem was not caused by the operating system but by something I was doing with Modds that corrupted the files. Since my last post I have upgraded my windows 10 machine to windows 11, but everything seems to work okay with the modified sets.

I suppose I need to be careful with installing modds in the future.
