If they were installed properly, and we will assume they were, they should show up in your Content Library Tab in the Poser Formats section. Those are older files and will not show in the Smart Content Tab.
I hope this helped you if not let me know.

They are perfectly good items. V4 is a stand alone character that you can load just like Genesis. And the other set is some textures to make your V4 have that skin and some morphs and stuff. By older I just ment they were made before DS4 and Genesis. Some of the older sets only show in the Content Library Tab because they do not have the NEW Metadata files, the items with Metadata are the only ones that will show up in DS4 or DS4.5 in the Smart Content Tab. We all were using those OLDER files before DS4, Genesis and Metadata was released.

Did you find your files?

I’m not a Mac user but you should be able to load Victoria 4.2 by clicking on the icon. I’m not sure what all comes in that package but I think you get some textures that are Skins you add after you load the model and some poses that will put the pose you select on the character after you have it loaded.

Are you 100% new to 3D? If you are I can point you to some good starter videos.

Hi,

i dont see the icon when i load the program, i wonder if there is a way to point the app to the files??

i dont have any of the paid items showing up in the program. i am using the 64 bit version, im not sure if that makes any issue,

i just purchased the victoria 4.2 BASE, do i need to get the morphs as well ???

im new to 3D but im not having problems with the app, i found the learning curve to be quite easy,

by the way the victoria pack includes

Victoria 4.2 Base
Installers
Victoria 4 Base Power Loader - exe - pc
Victoria 4 Base Power Loader - zip - mac
Victoria 4.2 Base (Mac) - zip
Victoria 4.2 Base (PC) - exe
Victoria 4.2 DS Poses (Mac) - zip
Victoria 4.2 DS Poses (PC) - exe

whats the windows way to use older 4.0 versions of files ?
