Opened DIM this morning and every character I own for Genesis seems to be getting an update, but no info on what the updates involve.  Anyone have an idea?

Egad. o_O I hadn’t launched mine at all today and sure enough, there they are.

Time to download, not install, and peek in the zips.

/edit
Used DIM and right click > installer files and I’m stumped. Was hoping to see some files going into the G2F folder, but nope. I think I’ll wait to install this until I find out what the updates are.

I’m kind of curious what these updates are for myself. Saw them when downloading new purchases so I installed the updates. V5 seemed like it was the largest. Took quite a while to download it. No mention in the product readmes in the doc center.

I looked inside the V5 zip itself, and according to the file dates the Bree textures and files in /data have been updated.

Haven’t checked, but I’m expecting some older files may eventually be updated to .duf format?

I just started using this thing, how do I find updates? All my products so far have been downloaded & installed the old way, I’d rather not have to do it all over again just to find out what’s changed.

All I saw was characters in the updates. So no need to download anything else if there is no updated download showing in DIM.

This is weirdly variable. I have most of the characters Anikad showed in that screencap, but the only ones I have with updates at all (not just from the screencap) are Aiko5, CitizenX, Stalker Girl, Michael5 and Gorilla. No Young Teens, no Andrei, no Hiro5, no Stephanie5. Very strange indeed.

Most of them already were DUF. The only character from my list above that wasn’t originally issued with DUFs is Michael5, and he got DUFed for DSON back in October.

You have to use the DIM to find out about updates. I believe you can get away with just downloading everything but not installing and you’ll still get notifications.  There is also this update thread where folks are commenting when something they have has been updated: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/3885/P540 but that’s not going to catch everything.

I’ve checked on new Julia and it looks for me that many morphs were compressed. When I decompressed main Julia morph it looked pretty much the same as before. If there are differences in code, it would take a lot of time to decompress and compare everything so I wonder if anybody can compare functionality in some other way.

Well, now 6 of this morning’s updates are on the list again.  Gabi for V5, Gunner for D5, Mavka for Genesis, Riley for S5, Tori for V5, Arashi for H5 were all updated at the time of my original post, but here they are again in DIM, and actually not in the “Products to be updated” category, just listed as Products to dl and install.

Whatever it is, it doesn’t seem to be hurting anything, other than messing up a little of my custom naming conventions.  For example, I hate when products have a + or !! in front of their names to bump them to the top of the list in Smart Content, so I usually remove that punctuation so they get alphabetized like everyone else.  So now I have double entries on all of the ones I did that with.

I don’t own any of those items but I checked and none of mine have repeated from this morning. Maybe they will eventually get around to putting the changes in the readmes but that doesn’t seem to have happened yet.

Has Gabi for V5 actually been updated?  The files aren’t showing an update and 2 versions show up in the product Library that have slightly different sizes.

Quick addition it, looks like multiple versions are showing up for download in troducts Library for some products.  Mavka has a new version and an old version.  Both files are the same size, but they have different dates.

The multiple duplicate name files it looks like is the problem.
