Makehuman stopped working after pc crash.

Postby ebar » Thu May 20, 2021 3:37 am


I was fiddling around with some poses when my pc froze. I had to restart it manually.

Now when I start the app, nothing happens.

Running it on Win 10, version 1.2

Here's the content of python_err.txt

error: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 566, in main
File "", line 197, in init_logging
import log
File "./lib\", line 49, in <module>
from core import G
File "./lib\", line 80, in <module>
G = Globals()
File "./lib\", line 58, in __init__
File "./lib\", line 67, in _preStartupConfigScan
data = json.load(f)

Thanks! Awesome app btw.

It looks as if your configuration file (settings.ini) has become corrupt. You can find this under "MY DOCUMENTS"\makehuman\v1py3. Easiest option is to simply delete it. This will reset MH to the default settings, but all user data will be preserved.
