Figured since this thread was started I’d ask my questions here rather than in a new thread.
(edit - the assumption in the questions below is that I am using DS4.5 and up exclusively rather than earlier versions of DS. I do also use Poser)
1 - I have older DS files in my DS folder that were in the .dsa format
example for James for M5 - in the installer version 1.1, the body was
01 James Body INJ.dsa
along with the PNG
the new installer version 1.2 that just came out updated to the DSON format is, of course
01 James Body INJ.duf
instead of the .dsa file and along with the PNG.
Is there ANY reason to keep the dsa files in the folder along with the .duf, or should I just be deleting them? Would they even still work if they’re left there along with the .duf files?
2 - I have a lot of Poser files in my Poser runtime which had .ds files so that the DS mats would be used instead of the poser mats.
And, I think Richard created a script to create a .ds file alongside a cr2 or pp2 file so you could have all the items in the same location (instead of having one place for your Poser files and one for the DS files), but if you’re using DS it would use the .dsa file instead of the cr2 etc.
I figure this still will work, but am I understanding correctly that from now on, a .duf file will take the place of the .ds and/or .dsa file in any of these circumstances?
If I AM understanding correctly, is there any reason to update those files, and, if the files are updated by Daz to be .duf files, again, would I delete the old .ds./.dsa files?
Hope this makes sense. I’ve tried searching to find the answer to this but wasn’t very successful…
Is it my understanding that what now would be done is that you would opent this stuff up in DS
