It’s the first time I do updates for products at the DAZ store, but as for as I know, the updates will be available by downloading the product again from your DAZ account and you should get an e-mail notification when they have been released.

You probably should post a notice here when it is updated as the email notification doesn’t seem to work anymore. at least not for a number of people here.

Now this is GOOD news….GenX is the main reason I’m not updating - I may not be that good at using it, but it’s still indispensable to me.  I’ve gotten Alice and GND4 to work in Genesis (more or less *wink*).  Main reason I purchased it was Stephanie 4….I got her working in Genesis a few days ago.  Even after purchasing S5, and am happy with her, without all those shaping morphs, she’s no replacement for S4. That was a great product you came up with, and I’ll be waiting for the update…no rush, I’m happy with what we have.

Nuts I just purchased it without realizing it will not work!
Ahhhhhhhh!
I wish Daz would flag up problems with updates rather than spending money and finding out like this.
Applying for a refund and will buy when the problem is fixed although at the rate Daz is going the update will come out before then!!!

Would you mind explaining in great detail to the rest of us how you did this, with Stephanie 4 in particular?

I am sure we would all very much appreciate this. grin

Like many, I’m not updating to 4.5 until your plug-in is ready.  Your tool is amazing, allowing me to use content from other vendors, etc. on Genesis.  Thank you for your hard work in advance and can’t wait for the
update.  Peace.

I thought I would get round the waiting by using the original freestanding Gen4 version that I had.

Alas, it requires the old .dsf genesis file.

There is that technique to be able to convert without using GenX at all. I might give that a try.

Last resort is to install the disk partition image that I took before I upgraded to 4.5.

I am sure the new version will arrive when it is ready, but the wait is killing me.

Lol, thanks Totte, for saying it first!  I’m pulling my hair out that Dimension 3D is MIA, and not giving any updates.  Right now, I’m largely regretting my upgrade to DS4.5, solely for this plug in.  It would be handy if D3D could give us an update on the plugin, rather than leaving us in the dark.  I know that stuff can take a lot of time to develop, but many of DAZ 4’s plugs have already been updated to work with DS4.5.

So D3D, if you’re paying attention to this thread, please provide your adoring public with an update, maybe a ETA on the plug-in.  The wait is killing me!

I take it we should expect to be charged for this upgrade and I would gladly pay the fee. After all, D3D had GenX working perfectly until DAZ made changes.

Daz will have a riot on their hands if they charge for the update. It will be free.

“I will release free updates for both applications as soon as possible.” - from the first post in the thread.

Er false alarm….

Man I SO NEED genX to work again… I had to update to 4.5 but boy does it really, really make me mad having to update tons of things (or not having the ability to update) when things weren’t even all updated for 4, much less ready for 4.5 yet. What a yucky mess and loosing lots of backward compatibility.ick.

Thank you D3D for working to update this… I for one am VERY GRATEFUL and probably wouldn’t be into Genesis without it.

Hey Dimension3d - are you participating in the PA sale this month, and if so, can you tell us roughly when, because I would love to get your GenX products and would hate to miss the date.  Thanks.
