Ok new issue.  I just purchased the Supersuit pro bundle which I WANTED smile

However, when I go to the download page I have PC stuff mixed up with my Mac files.  I hate when I accidentally DL a PC exe file.  It just gets real confusing.  Can Someone on the website team get the “Mac only files” feature back for downloadables? 

Thanks it is much appreciated!  smile

Since DAZ is going to move to ZIP files rather than installers I suspect this won’t change.

Zip files rather than installers??? But Mac users have always gotten our installers packed inside Zip files. So there’s no change there. The only difference now is that it’s an absolute nightmare to have to randomly weed out all the mac installers between the exe files, especially if you’re downloading more than five products.

That ‘Mac only files’ filter needs to come back ... PLEASE PUT IT BACK! snake

No, they are switching from installers to a zip file with the content, which will be the same zip for all platforms rather than a separate Win installer and Mac installer.  There will be an OPTIONAL stand-alone installer for those who want it.

A zip file with just the content?? As in now we’ll have to manually place all of our new content ourselves by default. Did someone just up and decide that convenience is evil?!


gulp


Wait … and wasn’t there also a legal issue with that? I know Daz used to send out zip files for products with the old Mac installers that no longer work on current operating systems. But they updated their policy and discontinued the practice ... this would be like restarting it again on a mass scale wouldn’t it? grrr

Some people prefer zips that they can install themselves, while others prefer installers.  SO DAZ will be providing the content in Zip files, and an optional, stand-alone install manager that you download once if desired.  You can then either download the content yourself and install it yourself, or download it and have the install manager install it, or have the install manager do everything (check if products have been updated and download and install them on request).

Don’t know why my thread was moved to this one. It has nothing at all to do with any of the topics shown in the first post. *shakes head* But fine, if you wanna have my info covered up by other issues about forum/site bugs…so be it…


This entire thread is on store bugs not forums bugs…that is a totally different thread which you can find here:
http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/123/


As for why it was combined with this thread (while I didn’t move it) I would assume it is to keep all such information together. Having 20 different threads in three to four different areas is painfully hard to keep track of or for anyone trying to do this fixes to follow. Putting the issues together is far easier and a better way to track things.


Also, this thread isn’t just for people to discuss the few things I had listed, it was to report other things you may find as well smile

I sent out an email to support earlier today about pc membership.  Is there a chance that it will be worked on Saturday.  My membership expires Sunday.

I am not certain whether they will be working through the weekend or not though if the membership would lapse or they don’t get to it in time, they should be able to just put it back live again with no issue.

The store is not alerting me to purchases I have already made.  I purposely put an item into my cart that I knew I’d already purchased.  I got no warning.  I went to checkout, and STILL had no warning.  This is a HUGE issue for me. Please tell me this is a known bug and is being resolved!!

Hi,

a note for all who are stuck with the “pending” status of new order/downloads. I got the same and tried to contact the CS by mail, but without any reply. However, after a couple of days I just did this: Go to “itemized order history”, scroll to the order number in question and just hit “reset” (despite the fact that it is already listed, but “pending”). For me it immediately worked, all links reset and were functional.

Hello alls,
i move my post to this topic, Richard Haseltine gives me the right direction, thx

My Question: Posted: 25 May 2012 08:30 AM

Hello alls,
sorry if i say that in Moment ... but where is the ” No like Button” on the new Website?
The new Daz-Shop makes Trouble. The Old Forum looks better than the New.

If i try to buy an Item then i stuck in Ceckout Window. He say “add a State or a Provinz” but how to do it?
It exist no Entry Window to do this. I live in Germany, we have no States.

I wish me the Old Shop and Forum back !!!

Greetings Nabou

Thx Richard,
the Problem with Checkout is solved :-D
i have only to Update my Billing and Shipping Adress, then works all fine.

But some other finetunig on shopping site i wish and are verry important..

I see no Filesize on Product-page or in Download-page or if i download a Product, its how a blindfly..
I see not how many Files the Product have on Product-site for comparison with my Download-site.
The Pay-Windows comes first before i can check the Orders for correct Pricing or add a Gift-Certificate.
I can not disable the Mac- or PC-version in my Download-Area, this generate a long list with Information i not need.
And i got no Mailnotification that i become a answer from u Richsrd :-D

sorry my cheap english and typos

Greetings to all, Nabou


and a new Failure i see in my Download Area
the Daz 4Pro that i try to download (Version 4.5) is a Zip file and has no Installer.
I hope all that failures will be shortly eliminated to become my old fine buy-feeling back

Greetings Nabou

The Daz Site is not showing coupons for discounts at checkout nor are they showing coupons and minutes offered for the month. 

Daz site is not adding products for redownload once requested from the download files saved on Daz. 

The Daz Site is not recognizing previously purchased items on Daz and are putting them in the cart any way. 

The downloads on the Daz Site is not giving you the option to choose pc only downloads or mac only downloads. 

There is still no ArtZone availability on Daz that allows us to post our art without having to go through a bunch of rules, regulations and bs.

I really hate the new daz site, it makes everything harder and when you select the contact us button, it does not work and you just feel like your being redirected in circles with no real help being offered.  Still does not have readme files for a lot of their products.

I tried to download Aiden for M5 but it’s now download and it says Aiden for M5 is an addo on and they must be installed to the same location as M5.  I did select the same location but it’s not recognizing it.  It just says please choose a different location or install the required products first.  Can’t download my downloads.  Still you have not brought ARTZONE back.

Most of the things on Daz do not work now!!!  Good Lord, the site is working just terrible.

Plus paying for the membership witch this month has been a waste to me, I am scared to order anything else so I am missing what deals are out there.

Also don’t like at check out then your Item on sell goes back to full price, once in your cart to check out it should not change! JMO

Which email did you use? Did it bounce, or are you simply waiting for a reply - as you may imagine, support is dealing with a heavy load at the moment.

The one for sales is support @ daz3d.com - though the cs address should be working, certainly.

I have thousands of items dating back to 2005, and this new itemized order page is extremely non-functional and useless without any way to change the number of items you want to see and also a search function.  I always used to just hit ‘Ctrl+F’ in FF and then type in my text to search for.  I want that back.

I also want the option back to hide the Mac files.  I don’t want or need them, and there’s no way to turn them off.

I’ve already had to ask for a refund because I was charged twice for something because the site didn’t warn me I already had the item.  They need to put that back muy pronto.  Every other site warns you if you’re trying to purchase an item you already have.

The ‘Add to Cart’ button rarely works for me and I have to keep refreshing the page in order to get the item to actually go into the cart.  Then I get a warning I can only put that item in my cart once.  Well really???

I’ve had to change my password 3 times because the site won’t login correctly.  Even when I am logged in, if I go to another part of the store, I have to login again.

It’s a chore to shop or browse with the way the categories are set up.  Why couldn’t they have left the show ‘All Products and Promotions’ choice?  They really need to work on how the categories are arranged.  It makes no sense at all.

Editing to add:  I don’t like these new forums either…..and now that I see my ‘first’ post, I notice it’s not adding spaces between paragraphs.  Now it’s just displaying as one long tirade.

*this*
I have 81 pages in my itemized order history.  That makes it absolutely useless.
