Would you please make an on off switch for DSON.  I think that would be useful in poser.

Since it is only running when you are using DSON Content, what do you see as a reason for this?

Have there been any negative issues with DSON and Poser 10/PP 2014?

ALSO:  I installed the 32 bit DSON for P9.  I wonder if DSON should be completely uninstalled first, then the new 64 bit DSON installed for/to PP2014 x64?  Well, I won’t be using P9 or PPro7 much any more.  PP2014 meets all the needs I’ve had for all previous versions.  So I will uninstall the old DSON.  Just wondering IF we *could* keep both 32 and 64 bit versions installed to the respective 32 and 64 bit installations of P9 and PP2014?

Not that we have been able to determine.

This new Dson importer seems to have broken in Poser Pro 2014.  I select a new character and nothing shows up.  Opening up a file with a Genesis character now offsets all the texture files!!!!


****EDIT - Okey dokey, my mistake.  I moved a folder by mistake from my Library which I’ve now put back and all is ok.  DAZ’s new Install Manager updated and started putting files in the wrong place.  So clearly Dson was looking for something it couldn’t find.

Silly me!  Sorry.

Are you sure you’ve added the folder to which you installed the DSON Core files to PoserPro 2014’s list of external libraries?

“Since it is only running when you are using DSON Content, what do you see as a reason for this?”
In poser 2014 it is possible to use poser skinning and save a genesis as a poser Cr2.  It obviously can’t autofit more clothes but you can make all the clothes fit prior to saving and save them as well, say for a certain character.  Then you can just use the character in poser.  Problem is DSON keeps on slowing things down.  I may want it on again when I get more clothes for the figure or want to make a new figure etc.
So yes, there is a good reason for wanting the on off switch.

If you aren’t using DSON figures, then DSON isn’t slowing anything down. It is like saying you need to turn off Wardrobe Wizard when you are not using it.

that isn’t true I think.  the last time I tried poser skinning of a genesis figure and saved it, everytime I reposed I think dson ran anyway but wasn’t needed.  I think.

The functions only run when you call them by using a DSON figure. (Like Genesis, Genesis 2, or the Mil Horse 2.) If you are using Poser Content it not only doesn’t run, it can’t run, unless you specifically call it from your poser content, and you would have to manually add the lines required.

Just a quick note for a little thing to pay close attention to when installing DSON:
SO FAR, the installer has offered me Poser Pro 2012 for the default installation path.
I’ve never had PP2012 at all.  Only P9 and now PP2014.  I paid only cursory attention
to that and found it wasn’t in PP2014.  Exploring a little bit showed me a PP2012 folder
and only the uninstall info and data file for DSON.  Re-running the installer asked to
uninstall the old, then install the new (yes).  I then made sure to manually select the
PP2014 folder and DSON is present and working. 
Just a little thing to keep in mind is all!  wink

I could not get IK on legs to work to use Genesis in Poser Pro 2014 in order to do a walk simulation.  Read online that DSON does not support IK for Poser.  Has this show stopper been fixed for Genesis 2?  Or, am I doing something wrong?

Oh I wouldn’t call that a show stopper, as I don’t use IK.  Not an animator.  So I can’t answer that question at all.  Sorry.
PS- I’m delighted that IK is now defaulted to OFF with Figures!
