For me it sounds like the browser for some reason has decided images from daz3d.com are dangerous.

 


Um, Totte, some of them are...!

To the user maybe, but this one only protects the system i guess wink

Well, I hope that image arrived OK - unfortunately I can’t see it myself - as I mentioned on Friday, I haven’t been able to see ANY images in the forum since October (several other people have this problem too, but I don’t know where the problem is as you all are obviously getting your images) - I just hope this gets resolved before the voting starts!
Thanks to Totte and Luci45 for their kind comments on my previous posts. I’m really sorry I can’t make any further comments on all the images posted since October 30th, but I’m truly in the dark about them all!
In a spirit of optimism, I’ve made my final pull…
84 = Merman
420 = Sport-Trainer Shoe Pack for Genesis
761 = Cold Life
597 = Songbird ReMix Shorebirds Volume II: Herons & Bitterns

Have you tried a different browser, security settings, reset cookies?
For me it sounds like the browser for some reason has decided images from daz3d.com are dangerous.

Actually I started using Google Chrome during September because I was having problems downloading files (purchases) from DAZ in IE9. Then part way through October Chrome started behaving a bit strangely with images - they would initially display but once the whole page had loaded all the images would disappear again (little “X” boxes instead).  So I switched back to IE9 for Forum browsing.  Then on about October 30th I started having problems on IE9 too. Pages with images take ages to “finish” downloading, but the images never turn up, or sometimes just a garbled version of the top 1/3 or so of the image.  It’s weird and some other people have reported the same thing, but it seems to be just a few of us.
I tried clearing cache, removing cookies, rebooting, resetting IE9 to default settings,... but nothing seems to work.
So if anyone does have any other suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

ETA: And the only place I have a problem is the DAZ Forums - the shop is perfectly OK, so are other sites that I go to regularly (though there may be others that I don’t visit that also wouldn’t work, who knows?) I can see the avatars and images in people’s signature line, just not the javascript-based attachments.  I updated Java to make sure I had the latest version, but that made no difference either.

ETA2: I’ve just been to the forum thread where fellow-sufferers have been hanging out and have discovered that the problem is with our anit-virus - a recent auto-update caused the problem. I now have a work-around that brings my images back! Oh, joy - now I can get back inside the twisted minds of Totte, Ken and the rest of you!

Thanks a lot, Jaderail - I was just updating my post above for the second time as I’d just seen the latest info in the thread you linked - we cross-posted - so as you see I’m fine now, thanks.

Thanks, Totte, “last supper?” Haha. I guess it does. Lord Biddle is a cross-dressing lunatic, but so far has not been crucified. I guess he doesn’t cause that much trouble…

Markus, good to see you back at RRRR! #1 has got so many great things about it, mostly I like the rich color, texture and the lighting, your stark post-apocalyptic ambiance. #2 Gorgeous rich colors! I love that Juggling costume, still haven’t used it.

Welcome, adacey! #1 Nice eerir one. That stark blue is chilling.

KaribousBoutique - Welcome! I love #1 (saw it on deviantart too.) Really good use of pull and funny and great composition! #2 - It’s fun doing something dramatic (or melodramatic?) like this too. Anything goes here (within the TOS), as you may have noticed.

Totte, #6, wow, that is really wacko! I downloaded it to have something extra to chuckle about. (The flying guy could be mistaken for Mr Methane from this angle. An accident? smile )

Ken, the penultimate one - strange as always, and pretty funny. LOL What is that extra moon? And no, I never really got the whole Paris story - my mythology knowledge is pretty spotty.

Kaputcha, #6 - another nice one. I always like your compositions. What are the two sculptures? Did you make them?

MelanieL, that’s a really nice one! The dialog and posing are great and bright airy daylight adds to the incongruity or twistedness of the situation. Sorry about your browser problems. Oh, I see you have a solution? What Anti-virus program do you use? ( I wasn’t mentioned by name as a twisted mind. That’s not good.)


My ultimate pull:
Hardcore for M4
Lana Elite Texture
GIS Link
Great Room Grand Forks Furniture, Eclectic Texture

And…, as I frequently say to my bartender, ‘Last one, one more time!’  (And this really is the last one, as in draw #7):

612 - Spirited Ladies
1025 - Fairytale Collecton - Prince Charming
568 - Lisa’s Botanicals - Grasses & Flowers
468 - Mystery Cave with Water

I think I know exactly what I want to do with this one.  Hopefully, it won’t require more shopping!


I actually did two versions of this - one in Poser 9, and one in DS4.5Pro.  I chose the Poser version, because David’s expression didn’t import into DS properly; in fact, none of the morphs worked in DS! (What’s up with that!?  Never mind.  I just checked the Poser General Preferences, and found that ‘Use External Binary Morph Targets’ was turned on; yeah, that’ll do it!  And yeah, I’m an idiot!)

Also used:
Kozaburo’s Kyoko Hair MK-3 Universal
AprilYSH’s Jamie Hair
Millennium Dragon
LA3D’s Donavan for David (head morph)
LA3D’s Shelby for David (texture)
Lee Dress for V3 MFD (Freebie from ShareCG)
Morphing Fantasy Dress for V3 (Had to wrap that Lee Dress texture around something!)
Vampire Coffin (Another freebie from ShareCG)

But I’m seeing a bit of a Louis Carroll influence in this one.  Except, instead of one Mad Hatter, there’s a whole gaggle of them!

Thank you. smile Those sculptures were generated from the Square Cliff prop that was part of my pull…it’s a fun prop, and very versatile!

I don’t remember if I’ve done 5 or 6 of these yet, so I’ll make this my last entry. And…pull!

295. Wizard Pets Familiars and Constructs
247. StoneWare, Organic 1.0: RoundStone
374. Mestophales Dragon
346. Gutterkraw

Interesting mix, if figure and prop heavy. The pets/familiars pack has at least 4 different ones as I recall, Roundstone is a pretty versatile prop, the Dragon is awesome, and Gutterkraw is a drum prop for Troll.

So as I can now see images again, I thought I’d take a look back over the last few pages:

barbult RTFM - that’s really good - love the chef’s expression.
Ostadan Audition - Lovely image - I like the big cat’s balancing act, I’d give him the job!
Sasje There is a little story - very nice render - the colours really draw the eye in.
Totte Homeland Security Officer… - nice stance!
Sasje SSSSHHHHT - another beauty - you’re really on a roll there! Neat use of Enchanted Island and Leviathan too.
Micky_3d Natasha & Tora - lovely colours again and I like your characters too.
Luci45 Lord Biddle and his daughter… - another weird and wonderful one - I love all the hats!
sedor Matchball - another wacky idea - fits together surprisingly well!
adacey Look out behind you - very striking render, bold colours and lighting too.
KaribousBoutique I don’t think we’re in NVIATWAS… - very clever - I like the “ruby boots”!
Totte Dr Horrible’s Garage Sale - wow, what a product list - I though we only needed to pull 4??! (and I like the jetpacker’s expression)
Ken OBanion Thou art a true Wizard… - nice smoky atmosphere, makes the characters really stand out.
Kaputcha Stranger - what a striking background you’ve put together - the trees really look good - I like the colours here.  Have you sorted out your laptop invisible image problem now?
KaribousBoutique We Don’t Take Kindly to Strangers - another striking bold colour scheme - good render too.
sedor Costume Party - very atmospheric lighting - it really brings out the dingy surroundings.
KaribousBoutique The Modern and Archaic Methods… - very funny! The woman on the right has a very determined look.
Kan OBanion While performing his Princely duties… - amusing as ever and nice colour scheme.

Thanks for the comments. It was Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 - upgrading (free) to 2013 apparently solves it. Sorry I didn’t name-check you on the “twisted” front - I hadn’t seen your latest oeuvre when I posted that!
