Subject: Vue 8 xstream - doesn't load texturesnoofkin opened this issue on Jun 29, 2010 · 25 posts
Hi guys, I really hope you can help me. When I import an object, plants etc ... it always appears without textures. Every object I import (even if it has textures in its file) VUE displays an error message: "unable to find file bla bla bla/org-maple.prf" (example).
and even if I import free objects with textures (I downloaded) it requests textures from vue that aren't even necessary for this file? What's wrong? I reinstalled VUE but I still get this message...
thanks so much!
holy vue, this is really weird. Now I can't even import objs ... vue closes itself without a warning or saving ... what the hell is going on? I did this update, but nothing happens .. the same problem. everytime I load a file it closes and the message pops up:
a software problem has caused vue 8 xstream to close unexpectedly. we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you ...
what am I supposed to do now? ... I run an antivirus scan... but nothing found. What could be the problem? thanks for your help!!!
Ok I'll do that. (I'll try this beta update u mentioned before)
I am using a MAC, maybe this is the problem? It worked before ...
The problem I am having is with materials and objects. When I try to open files I get a pop-up saying "Unable to find fileApplicationObjectsblablabla.jpb or mat or veg. Would you like to locate it?" But those "files" or "jpgs" vue requests don't exist ... Do I have a bug or something?
I then get about another 10, 20 similar pop ups asking me to find other jpgs, mats, etc.
or when I try to import a tree the software crashes down.
I'm so desperate now ....
It looks like Vue is looking for content and can't find it at the right location. Is it looking for .prv files? When it asks for the texture, if you browse to the texture and click ok, does it load the object (not Vue objects, but for example 3ds or obj files?)
Is your content folder at this location: Application/E-on software/ Vue 8 xStream, etc? Because for example on WXindows, content is by default in a Documents folder. But I don't know about the mac.
Now I downloaded the PLE version and even that doesn't work. Everytime I want to import a plant or an object this fu**** message pops out - sorry, I'm so upset and angry.
"Unable to read file /private/tmp/mystation/eon/2451245_q452/.veg0Fy6fVmat."
this happens in my full version of vue 8 xsteram and now in the PLE 7.5 ....
I installed the 8.5 PLE version. Everytime after I save the files and reopen them the textures can't be found. Vue asks me for mat. files or jpg's I haven't even used ... what is wrong with this? I mean, I deleted everything from my mac, installed this PLE version and even this won't work ... ...... ....
Ok, I think I got it. The objects, plants, etc you are trying to load are objects that are sold at Cornucopia, they are not objects that ship with Vue. They can be recognised by the Cornucopia logo at the bottom right of the object's preview. Try and load for example a Rural maple tree, this one is a tree that ships with Vue. If it loads normally, then your Vue version works perfectly.
no no, I don't use the things that carry a logo. I have the same problem with free models I download from the Internet or normal "plants" that already come with VUE... like cherry tree or grass or something that doesn't carry a logo. It worked before .. now nothing works ...
I reinstalled it, but nothing ... No vue version works ... not my full version, not the 7.5. or 8.5 PLE ... ....... :( : ( :( :(
Ok, did you do a clean uninstall? I mean, on Windows, there are folders that need to be deleted as well as the main Vue folder, like the folder in Documents, and a folder that is called "AppData/"Roaming,/e-on software/Vue... I don't know where this folder is found on the Mac, but you need to delete it as well. And any temp file in your temp folder just to be sure. If you've already done all this, then I don't know, and you should open a support ticket at e-on.
