We had to temporary locate to Seattle where my husband underwent a major organ transplant so I have been absent from Daz Studio and the forums from the end of May until just recently with the exception of a few days. This is evident by my user status and number of posts. I think when the old forum ended, I had some 500-600 posts to my credit.
We are now back home, and I have spent the last couple of days trying to catch up on the Nuts’n Bolts, Daz Discussions, & the Commons forums, but as you can imagine, it would take forever to read each and every post. My dilemma is that I would like to upgrade to Daz Studio 4.5 - mainly because I understand it is much faster than D/S 4. However, having read about all the glitches that “might” appear if I do upgrade, I am hesitant to take the plunge. I’ve prepared by downloading the upgrades for, but not yet installed, my beloved GenX, and Reality 2.5 along with the newest Dynamic Cloth Plug In.
In the past, I have generally not had any problem with my old D|S 3 content which is in its own folder, nor with the My Library folder. However, I read about all these Duplicate IDs problems. So, to make a long story short, what exactly can I expect if I do upgrade to 4.5 in the way of Duplicate IDs messages? My OS is Windows 7 - 64-bit. I have about 20-25 content items that need to be updated as they are included among the list posted in the Updated Genesis Products List & Thing To Be Aware Of thread.
Can someone please describe this Duplicate ID problem?
