    I just received an email from Dimension 3D in response to my inquiry of Genesis X Generation's status update. As I told him, I am sharing the contents of said email on this thread. His response was:

    Hi.

    The update for GenX for DS 4.5 is on its way. Actually, all I'm waiting for is that the update goes live. Maybe it is even already live and just no-one told me ...

    If you like, reset your download for GenX at DAZ store and see if you already get version 1.2. (Sorry that I can't tell for sure, but I really don't know at the moment if it is already live or not.)

    Regards, Ralf Sesseler]
    *EDIT* I just reset my download for Generation X, and it has not yet been updated to 1.2 as of 1557 Hrs PST.

    Ditto. Sigh...

    But at least it's almost here, so I can go ahead and load 4.5 on the new machine I just finished building. :coolsmile:

    Because as stated earlier in the thread "patience is a virtue’ and they are trying to help us be virtuous . .......well it's either that or they are actually
    in a small time bubble ,where time is just not the same as in the real world .You know the kind that wraps around you the older you get ........time seems to go by so much faster then when you were younger ....

    Where do you see the version number on the page?

    At http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genesis-generation-x it says " This product is currently incompatible with DAZ Studio 4.5"

    but on the update software page http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genesis-generation-x-upgrade-from-gen4 it do not say "incompatible with DAZ Studio 4.5".

    I assume it is not ready for 4.5 yet.

    Not on the shop page, in the name of the downloadable file in My Downloadable Products.

    Does the Gen3 addon also need to be reset, or just the base program?

  • riftwitchriftwitch Posts: 992

    I reset those, and they do have new files that have Studio 4.5 in their names, as well. I've downloaded them all, now I just need to find the time to install them.

    Okay, I reset my downloads and got 3 files for the Gen 3 shapes (M3+V3, A3+H3, and S3, D3+F3) The Gem4 update is only the one file for M4+V4. This is because all the secondary figures were morphs of M4 and V4 right? I'm not missing any additional files.

    The Gen 3 addons are in 3 files because they can be bought separately, that's all. The main program is just one installer.

    Good-oh, I was pretty sure it was something like that.

    Looks like it's no news, but here's the official announcement that GenX and the Gen3 add-ons are now available for DAZ studio 4.5. Former customers can get the updates by resetting the download for their purchase at the DAZ store. I'm sorry that releasing the update took a bit more time than expected.

    Besides working in DS 4.5, there are also some improvements and bug fixes in the new version.

    1. The morphs are now transferred with an improved scheme to get smoother results in particular for the face (s. image). The improved presets are selected initially by default when loading a figure in GenX. The former presets are still included, they are marked by [1.0] just in case you prefer the old scheme.

    2. It happened sometimes that a few single points were transferred wrong, in some cases this ruined the transferred morph, in other cases it was hardly visible. This bug has been fixed, there should be no more errors in the transferred morphs.

    3. It is now possible to get morph values (i.e. dial settings) directly from a figure in the DS scene. If you have a character saved in a DS scene or as a DS script, or if you have otherwise problems to load the morph values into GenX, you can now load or setup the figure in the scene and get these values from there.

    4. GenX now supports compressed DSF files and has some other adjustments to be compliant with the DS 4.5 file format.

    Because of 1. and 2., I recommend to transfer your morphs again to get better results.

    Because of 1., you should also update the Gen3 add-ons to benefit from the improved morph transfer. (Edited to add: In particular the Gen3 add-ons for A3 and H3 have been improved to work better in the eye area, e.g. the morph for closing the eyes transfers much better now.)
