Update Notes: The DIM version of Asobi may not be an update from the last stand alone installer version based on the dates in the DIM files. Most current DIMs for a product with December 2012 date or earlier for files have the same files as the last stand alone installer made for the product and don’t need to be updated.
Asobi Outfit is a newer version since the last version in a standalone installer.
A few things about updates and DIM files that may not have been mentioned in previous posts by others
Just going by the date stamps in the DIM files also gives some problems with knowing if a product has been updated that hasn’t been mentioned.
The DIM version may have been created latter and had no files updated since the older installer, but it will show up as being having a latter date because of the Manifest.dsx file that is in all the DIM files.
In some cases the DIM versions have been reported as missing files that were in the older installers and the DIMs had to get updated again to fix them.
For several items you were better off using the installers instead of the DIM version because of the missing files problems.
You don’t need to install the DIM version if you have the older installer installed in many cases as nothing was changed.
In some case the newer DIMs do contain newer files and DAZ never bothered to update the installers long before they started to phase them out and the DIM got updated when they still were including installers. (A few of the Poser CFs got updated versions, but they were only in DIM versions and this was a few months back.)
The product Read Me pages often give no information about the update or give the wrong information on what was updated and when the update was done.
A few clothing items got updated a few months ago with new versions and some had new character fits added and the Read Me pages were wrong on what was updated in regards to fits.
A product was updated on a certain day, but the DIM wasn’t uploaded till a few days latter.
The Read Me will say the product was updated on 6-30, but the files were actually updated on 6-26 when you look at them, so you are left wondering if another update is going to be out soon or if you got the current version because of this.
All of this makes trying to know what needs to be updated and what doesn’t is a nightmare.
I’ve actually considered just getting completely out of working with 3D figures because of the constant updates and trouble of finding out what was updated and have been buying mostly older content for Gen 4 & Gen3.
I really wish they would have keep the older installers had had the date last downloaded for files and the way newer downloads would show up in your account the way it was before switching to the newer store.
