Download Bug?

Postby NotKain » Mon Jan 27, 2020 6:31 pm

I have the Alpha version, and for whatever reason, I go to community tab, sync all of the add-ons, then when i download the skins I want, then try to apply them to the model, I just get a wrap around text of "No Texture Found". So me, being the problem solver I am, went into the web community, found the source code for one i wanted, copied it, went into files, opened a working skin, removed the code, and pasted the code for the new community skin, then saved it as a new file, same .mhmat ext. I then went back into MakeHuman, and it showed up, but when i applied, just got the same wrap around text. Any help would be appreciated. Hopefully i'm not being an idiot. haha (I tried to download atleast 6 or 7 from the downloader, but only did one of the copy paste code.) Thank you in advance.

Some assets are broken because of mistakes made by the author of the asset. In this case I'd suspect misspelling of the file name of the diffuseTexture.

The way to fix it is to use any text editor, find the file with the extension .mhmat, and edit that file so diffuseTexture points at the actually downloaded image texture. And report the mistake to the author of the asset.

The files are under makehuman in your documents directory.

Okay, so I did alittle digging, and I was able to find where the downloader saved the image, theres no easy way to ask this easily, but where is the file SUPPOSE to go? Because at the moment, this is where the .png, .mhmat, and the .thumb are saved. C:\Users\(NAME)\Documents\makehuman\v1py3\data\skins\. Is that where the files are suppose to be, because i can't find a "diffuseTexture ../textures/ type folder ANYWHERE. Ugh, so frustrating, I just want it to work! :'(

Each skin should have it's own discrete folder in skins the texture files both .png and .thumb would go into the folder for that particular skin then open the .mhmat file with a text editor and check that the path to the texture is pointing to the right place BTW notepad may not save in the correct way so I would recommend notepad++ a full open source text editor with good syntax highlighting.

The downloader has placed the files in the right folder. The error is the mhmat file that points somewhere else. You could edit it and remove the "../textures/" part.
