... 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?

Those versions have both the M4 and Genesis installers. You don’t need to install the M4 versions if you don’t want to; however there is an issue with Ryuu where the genesis material presets are calling the M4 files. There’s a update for that (nudges FW again wink ) that fixes it and also adds DS 4.5 compatibility and has better HSS settings. Santo will be getting a similar update. These updated installers will be needed for the M5 addons, as they will have new M5 morphs and textures for the M5 gens.

Edit: Santo has a Genesis only version, so you don’t need to install the M4 version…. But the genesis files and the bundle will be updated for Genesis to set up the materials for the addon.

Thank you, hopefully a forum post when the update gets posted so I can reset dl.

Btw, I really like how you have multiple characters in one at a good price (and excellent quality from the promos.) I wasn’t planning on buying any characters but couldn’t pass them up. I ended up buying 4 and will probably go back and get Nigel bfr the sale ends. smile

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.

Hm… Interesting character.

Somehow this slipped under my radar.  Thanks for the heads up smile

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.

Just a follow up…
Yes, moving the files to the correct folder resolved the error messages and the eye lashes problem. I still puzzle over the strange metadata organization, though.

Thank you!

That’s the Nigel Model morph.

And this is the older morph, Edmund:

Edit: PS…. My Avatar is the Chandler morph… since some of you have been staring at him for at least a month.

Could someone please do me a favour and post a render of Nigel using the hairy body option, as well as Man Fuzz? I wanna see how well the two co-operate with each other. :3

@Juju: Nice, I like the way the dynamic pants fits.

Took a bit to respond to the thread, I had to make icons and mats for the armpit hair and sent it off to be tested (Don’t complain about the icons… it’s close but icons definitely aren’t my thing). Didn’t know about the hair until I saw the promos. wink Hopefully the update to the product will go out either today or tomorrow.

Ok, if you haven’t checked, the updated files for Nigel should be available for download.

Thanks. 
A word of caution:  The 1.0 Nigel uninstaller removed parts of the Genesis base figure from my files…I had to reinstall Genesis for it to work properly again.
