Will DS4 and earlier users ever get a workaround for duf files?!
I've seen more and more DS4.5 only products coming out in the store and frankly it's irritating. I'm a firm believer in 'if it's not broken don't fix it' ... Even so, while I still don't understand why Daz created 4.5 so soon after releasing a brand new version number [DS4] and is now trying to force all of us to accept their new file format, I DO understand that people may want to use 4.5 and duf files. That's fine! Choice is a beautiful thing ... however why is it that legacy users are essentially being denied the choice to not upgrade?
I personally have no interest in DS4.5 and my main concern is that Daz isn't providing legacy installers with all their new content, as they should. Especially with the Daz Original content which I pay a membership fee to get a discount on, and now can't even use. I've passed up on the majority of the new items in the store for this reason, and I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same frustrations or has found a way that legacy users can work with products that are in duf format? I was interested in the Horse2 and I know someone said there's a remap floating around out there, but I'm wondering how you can even remap something that - like genesis/most genesis content - probably doesn't have a standard obj (to import into DS) associated with it?
I'm not holding my breath for a solution since I'm pretty sure duf wasn't created to be backwards compatible, but it would be really nice to hear some official word from Daz on why we're being cornered into this upgrade and whether us legacy users will eventually have to shop elsewhere for new content!
