QA was able to fix this and the links from my reset order are now working, without needing another reset - try yours, and if they don’t work try a reset from your Itemised Order History..


I reset my order history for this and now the files for the models are there, but the MetaData installers are missing.

Not quite certain what you are seeing as other people join dates, Because I see both RH and Brysey as joining on the same date I did, which is 2003-10-10.

Seems that different people see different dates. Check out the screen captures below.

THat’s interesting. But I am sure one day doesn’t make that much of a difference, can be explained by time zones, after all

There isn’t a metadata installer, they’ve stopped providing a separate installer - it’s in the main installer anyway.

Ok, I just reset my order and i can confirm that the 1.1 update seems to have only the metadata. Those of us with both files have the earlier 1.0 version.

Your Jedi mind-trick won’t work on me. These are the droids I’m looking for, and there clearly was a MetaData installer just a few hours ago.

Are you saying that between versions 1.0 and 1.1 of this product the file named “14581_RealTanksContainersMetaData_1.0_ds” was removed leaving only the single file “14581_RealTanksContainers_1.1_dpc”?

Is this why the product went from 1.0 to 1.1 (bundling the MetaData into the single installer)?

I’m seeing the same thing as de3an, all three registered “2003-10-9”.

Funny enough, de3an never joined, his profile states “Joined 0”... gulp

LOL

Anyway, how does one reset a download in this new site?

Please, pretty pretty please don’t tell me it’s through the “Itemized Order History” - Mine is 161 pages long, and obviously not sorted by date (that would be too useful), but by creators’ shoe size…

Yes, it’s using the “Itemized Order History”, and it is sorted Alphabetically.  Numerals come first.

Oh no…


Given a page refreshes in 4 seconds (right now), it would take me a little over 10 minutes of rabid clicking to go through the list, looking for the “Real Tanks Containers” file. If it was by date, I could at least start from one of the ends.

They’ve definitely decided to make using the site as tiresome as possible…  :-(


Thanks anyway!

Using binary search methodology, you should be able to find any item in an alphabetically sorted list 161 pages long in 7 attempts maximum. 


Click on the middle page and determine the Alpha direction to try next.  Select the middle page for each range.  For instance:


Page 80 -> page 40 -> page 20 ->page 10 -> page 5 etc

You could also grab Taozen’s history tool, and use it for file reset. (I swear I’m gonna bookmark the link this time.) Ah here we go: History management tool.


I will also recommend the download tool.

If someone joined at say 06:00 today (i.e. on the 29th) , to someone in the -07:00 timezone they actually joined at 23:00 on the 28th. Same instant in time, different representations in different parts of the world.

First thing to do is to select it to show 50 items per page, which will cut it to 33 pages. Kendall’s suggestion of a binary search will give you the right page in 5 attempts, but the alphabetical nature of the data will potentially allow you to find it in less.

What I did when I had a few minutes to spare waiting for a render was copy the data from each page into a spreadsheet, labelled with page number. To find the right page I then just look it up in the spreadsheet. It will slowly go out of date, but hopefully DAZ will have gotten around to improving the functionality by the time it’s no longer a timesaver

I doubt the update was just to remove the separate metadata installer, but it does seem to be the new standard system not to have a separate installer for just the metadata.
