could not load my saved files
« on: July 27, 2008, 04:00:34 PM »
Hi RMS,

 With the last sculpture i made, at some point
i thought i wanted to change something on the "body",
but when trying to load one of my previous (back-up files),
they all didn't load in anymore.
ShapeShop crashed while trying.

I would need a copy of the file to try and debug the loading failure. I can probably recover it, though. If you want me to try, send it to rms@unknownroad.com

cheers (and the sculpture is great, of course!)

cant open Any saved Shapeshop file
« Reply #3 on: August 06, 2008, 05:12:04 AM »
P.s /btw RMS

At the moment and maybe at all moments before too;-), i can not re-open any of the shapeshop files ...
so when i have something created worth to save i have  save it in an .obj format.
Which does not give the opportunity to change things later on in Shapeshop
so you have one session, one change to make something good !!!!

well i must be patience ... to let the "The ShapeShop" grow.

anyway i am a big fan already!

succes RMS!

That is very strange - I have no problems opening my saved xml files.

Can you try to make a file that you can't re-open, and send it to me at rms@unknownroad.com? Then I can debug the problem and fix it. (I can't do anything about it until I have a save file that re-creates the problem).

cheers,

RMS, i  installed just now,ShapeShop also on this computer ("My internet-computer")
and here i can re-open my files when created on this computer.

(i  could however not re-open the--file i sent you, the--file i made on my "work-computer").
My work-systen seems to  give the problem then.

Both run under WinXP SP2

if you need any(other) details, just let me know

greetings,

corien

You could load the files that didn't open on the other computer? Or you could load new files?

Anyway, I did reproduce your problem with that file on my machine here. It was a bizarre bug though, I can't see how my save-and-load would ever have worked with that bug (!). Looks like it might have been dependent on un-initialized memory though, which would give possibly unpredictable behavior on many computers.

I have uploaded the fixed version, but I did not rename it - it is still ShapeShop B4. So, just un-install re-download, and re-install, and your problem should be fixed.

(If it is not, please let me know).

Cheers, and thanks!
