It would be great if daz provided an auto update, or notification process for owners of products and include the uninstaller with the new update. It seem strange to me to me that this process is all user initiated. I own many daz products and wow, I’m going to be spending a lot of time on this… When I’d rather be doing daz modeling.

I agree. Renderosity notifies customers of product updates, and so should DAZ. I don’t know if Runtime DNA or Content Paradise do, since I’ve never received any notices from them, but I’ll assume that they do. Manually resetting and downloading each and every item to see what has been updated is time- and bandwidth-consuming. At the very least, put the latest update version and/or date on the product page, so customers can tell at a glance.

How do you figure out Epic Wings works with genesis?

they are fitted to genesis but you move genesis and the wings just stay where they are?

A couple of props/figures do that - I generally parent them to Chest (and twiddle the Y-pos a little)

RE: Future Cop For Genesis (1.1)
My installer for that is named 13337_FutureCopForGenesis_1.3_ds.exe

I haven’t reset because I can’t find it in my list so it could be newer by now I guess.

Hmmm. I once had the “bright” idea to change the names of all the installers so I could find things easier. I only did a few and then changed the names back. Might have done that with the Future Cop installer and somehow put in the wrong version number I guess.

Thank you for your hard work - I know it takes a lot of time and energy to do something like this, and it’s appreciated, very much.

However - rendering is supposed to take my mind off of stress, not create more.  Granted, it’s a tiny mind and doesn’t take much to push it over the edge - but doing all this resetting and re-installing falls firmly into the hot zone.  I’m sticking with DS4 - this is too much work.

I feel your pain…I had that bright idea once too - was a BIG mistake smile

And once more with feeling:

GOM Genesis Male Morphs 1.1 (upgraded from 1.0 at some point, sometime, somewhere there’s a place for us….)
Fantasy Wrap for Genesis 1.4 (in list at 1.2)

So much downloading ... so much reinstalling…

This really calls for an updated Itemized History (show the products in the order of when the latest version hit the store).
I have 44 pages @ 50items /page, takes a while to find every item, even if you binary search or guess that “T” is about 38,  or M is about 27 or G is about 18, but you always need to step a few pages back and forth.

I got so much to update and I’ve updates a lot already.

Updated 8-23-2012

Fixed:

Some typos
Put some stuff in correct order that wasn’t
Changed Stephanie 5 (.DSA) (1.0) (Included only in the Stephanie 5 Pro Bundle) to Stephanie 5 Pro Bonus Poses (1.1) (Included only in the Stephanie 5 Pro Bundle).  Since that is the name the product has if you look for it in DS 4.5


Added:


Beautiful Fingers for Genesis (1.0)
Cool and Sexy Poses For Stephanie 5 (1.0)
GOM Genesis Male Morphs 1.1
Miyu (1.4)


A note with a link to the thread with Richard Haseltine DAZ Studio 4.5 - Fix Duplicate IDs script was added to the notes.


Updated:

Fantasy Wrap for Genesis (1.4)


Duplicate Ids have been reported with:

Amethyst Fantasy for Genesis (1.1)
Defiant for Genesis (1.5)
FM Fight Club Clothing (1.0)
Genesis Bikini (1.2)
Hitomi’s Day Out (1.2)


Jade Assassin (1.1) in addition to having a duplicate problem was discovered to have had another bug.  If you look for it in your Content Library it is under Minight_stories instead of Midnight_stories.  Support is aware of this problem.


So we may get new versions of those in the near future.


Also, do note that I try to get the main list fixed as soon as I can, but may not have time to make a post to announce the updates to it right away because of time constraints.


The forums have been giving me trouble the past few days with making posts and updates, which also has been a major problem in making sure it is current.  Almost didn’t get this posted today because of that.


Thanks to vwrangler, Mike, and anyone I’m forgetting for all the recent contributions of updates and information on updates.


Thanks for all the kind words and support of this thread everyone.


Some quick replies to previous posts:


Sarsifus RDNA & Content Paradise have sent me out in the past emails when items have been updated.

I do miss that DAZ stopped doing that and doesn’t have the Last Downloaded and other things that it used to have to help in keeping things up to date.

RAMWof I actually was thinking the same about this being insanity a few times. 

With all the updates to genesis and the additions to MetaData to Non-Genesis.  I wasn’t to do any fun personal DS4 renders for about 2 months as all my free time was being spent downloading, uninstalling, and installing content.  I know I had over 150 gigs of files I downloaded that were just updates for products from between last April and now, since I burn them to back up disks.

Jay_NOLA, I’m glad that you thought to put up and maintain this list. It’s good to have this information somewhere. (Now if only the Powers That Be could be persuaded to make it a sticky…)

Today’s resets and version numbers:

Dead Nation Boots (1.0 - note that there may be issues when using the boots on a character with the David for Genesis shape dialed in; the vendor is aware of the issue and has contacted DAZ with the fix)

Alexios Hair (1.1, both Poser and Genesis)
Corbin for M5 (1.0)
Damaris Hair (1.1, both V4 and Genesis)
Gabriella for V5 (1.0)
Enticing Ladies (1.1)
Handsome Head Morphs for Genesis (1.0)
Leather Jacket for Genesis (1.0)

Thanks vwrangler,


I just added them in.


Support is aware of those items I mentioned in my last post that were reported giving duplicate IDs.  I mentioned that to them when I had to call them earlier about a glith with my PC mebership that happened today.

Something I found when I tried to reopen a saved file using these items only to discover that Studio 4.0.3.47 threw off errors, so I reset them, just for the hell of it:

Breezy, for Summer Dress for Genesis (1.2 - in list at 1.1, updated to fix material settings tool tip error)
Summer Dress for Genesis (1.1 - in list at 1.0, no reason given for update)

I agree completely. If you have windows you can use Taozen’s download history: http://taosoft.dk/software/dazhm/ which lists everything in one page and allows batch resetting. However, I am not happy about having to use 3rd party software to do this. Daz should be providing an updated history and should be automatically resetting a product when it gets updated and then emailing us.
