I was just looking at that thinking I already purchased it but I purchased the earlier one for M4 and Genesis. It took me a moment to realize it was a new set. I wish they had given the set a different name. I am worried some others may make the same mistake. *chuckle*

I love the new set, though. It is very different and adds quite a bit of variety to the mix of M5 shapes and faces. Great work, guys!

I have the original but this dude is just spell binding handsome to me.  The older Nigel was one of the first I bought for Genesis but there was something about how the shaders or something about it… can’t remember but begged off using it.  I know this team is even better than ever at their craft so the purchase was well worth it and at this intro price.. hell yea

Can anybody confirm if he comes with any gens textures? The store page doesn’t mention anything about them.

Yes he does. We’ve been drooling about that in non-creepy manner for a while. Honest. I swear.

Ah. So, just to be clear: if we buy him now but are running 4.0.3.47, we should hold off on installing the new Nigel to keep from messing up old Nigel until we’re running 4.5? (I like old Nigel too much to mess him up, meself.)

you can install the 4.0 version now, the 4.5 version will overwite the morphs; though you may need want to remove or rename the directory in People->Genesis->Characters->Male_M3dia so that you don’t get confused with the presets. Or you can just set the uninstall flag so that it will remove nigel when you’re ready to upgrade.

Also if you have the Genesis/M4 version, the morphs and textures in this product are in separate directories, so you won’t lose the original morphs or textures.

 

Ah, OK, I missed that you had both 4.0 and 4.5 installers the first time you said it.

That said, it looks like I don’t have a good version of the 4.0 installers, which, given the weirdness with ordering (not your fault, the store went all wonky in the middle and then double ordered for me) doesn’t surprise me.  It’s missing everything but the Color and Bump texture directories; Displacement, Specular, Transmap and SSS are completely missing from my installation.

How big is Nigel supposed to be? I have two installers for PC; part 1 is 231.144 KB and part 2 is 198,663 KB.

EDIT: Reset, redownloaded, uninstalled, reinstalled. Still no sign of those texture directories. Tried installing the 4.5 version to a temp directory to see if the directories were there—textures are textures, right—but Studio won’t let me install Genesis-dependent files to directories without Genesis in them, and I don’t have the right version for it to let me install anyway.

EDIT 2: Was actually able to install the 4.5 version. No joy there either; the same textures are still missing.  Something went weird at DAZ with the installers, I think. Is there perhaps supposed to be a third installer file with the rest of the textures for both versions?

Makes me really really really wish for zip files, this does.

I installed the DS 4.5 version of Nigel for M5. The metadata is quite unconventional. The majority of the textures appear in the Smart Content tab under Materials->Masculine->Nigel for M5->EHHS and Materials->Masculine->Nigel for M5->Default. This is not under the Presets->Materials grouping where you would expect such materials to appear. Also, I expect EHHS is a typo for EHSS. The morphs appear in Shaping on the Smart Content tab, not in Presets-> Morphs. I had a hard time finding all this. Is there a good reason for deviating from the norm with the metadata for this product?

Edit: Added the Nigel for M5 I left out of the metadata path description.

I’m having problems with Nigel for M5 product. I think maybe part of the product was left out of the installers. I installed the DS 4.5 PC version (14966_NigelForM5DS45Pt1_1.0_trx.exe and 14966_NigelForM5DS45Pt2_1.0_trx.exe). 

When I try to apply either body texture (00 Default Body Bald.duf or 00 Default Body Hair.duf), it cannot find textures for Displacement, Spec, or SSS. If I look at the path specified, there are only two directories (1. Color and 2. Bump). There is no folder 3, 4 ,or 5 for the other textures.

There also seem to be no textures at all for the eyelashes. If I start with a plain Genesis, and apply the Nigel materials, I get solid lash arcs. If I start with M5, I get some eyelash maps left over from the default M5 Phillip texture; they are not replaced with Nigel maps.

Does anyone else see these same errors?

Edit: Aha! I searched my hard drive and found some additional folders in the wrong place. This product evidently installed a second runtime folder under the real runtime folder. As in: ...\My Library\Runtime\Runtime\Textures\JSGraphics\Nigel M5. Perhaps if I move those to the real runtime where the program looks, it will solve these issues. I will try tomorrow when I have time.

I’ve let DAZ know about the installer issues. It’ll be up to DAZ to fix them asap. Sorry about this.

YES! That’s exactly what happened! Thank you for discovering that! I moved the files and all the presets worked!

I just installed 4.0 version to check if the maps were there, but nope, only 1. Color and 2.Bump

Waiting for update, but as the bug isn already reported I don’t have to report it.

... Santo and Ryuu will be addons for their original products (so if you don’t have ‘em, get them today

Ok, not sure about what this means. If we purchase Santo/Ryuu for Gen/M4 and want to just use the Genesis version we still need to have/install the M4 version?

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.
