What should I do Hex 2.5.0.5 or Hex 2.5.1.27 (32 bit)

Last week I just got a new computer (Intel core i7,32 GB of Ram, 64-bit Windows 7 Professional) I'm going to install Hexagon 2 on into my new computer.

I would like some insight on how stable Hex 2.5.1.27 is before I install it.

Most of my super important Hexagon files are in 2.5.0.5 format.

Thanks,

    Try to get a hold on 2.1 if you can.

    Version 2.1 of Hexagon. Less bugs in it.

    2.1 was a crashy buggy disaster barely more stable than 2.0

    As I recall correctly you can't go backwards from Hex 2.5 to Hex 2.1 or to an earlier version.

    I use 5.5.0.3
    It has it's bugs. but over the years i've learned to work around them. I've had Zbrush now for a year but I still return to Hex for many items.
    I still like Hex.

    We've all long suspected that daz gave up on version 3, but they gave up on 4, too?? :lol:

    Not for me. Been really stable. Maybe had one or two crashes a year, and I work with it on a daily basis and still do.

    I agree, I've reverted back to the patched 2.1 myself.

    Yes I think daz should issue S/N for 2.1 ever since I bought 2.5 I crash a lot and now since the update I cant follow Tez's modelling the human head as hex just crashes too much it gets frustrating. atleast it would allow you to find a version that works a little better. though I guess 2.1 is probably not available on the store anymore.

    I use 2.5.1.79 (latest official production release) for long time now on both XP and win7 and almost never crash or find a bug....but do lose stuff from user error or going to fast for Hex to keep up.....so don't work faster than Hex can process; especially true for large files.


    .hxn files seem to work in all versions, but I must admit I don't remember using a newer version created file in an old version of Hex.

    I use Hex 2.5.1.79 on daily basis, for hours at a time on some pretty complex jobs with no more problem than any other 3d app. It is a must if you want to use the Studio bridge.
