View Full Version : Milkshape crashing non-stop
30th Jun 2007, 09:48 AM
I don't know why this happens now, it started suddenly while it worked just fine previously.It crashes randomly while i am importing/exporting or while working on my object. I have version 1.8.1 .
Could it be relative to the cloned object? But i tried another one also and it crashed with it also ( a counter).
I hope someone can help me.

When -exactly- is it crashing, and what does it do when it crashes?
Milkshape has had a bug for quite a while where the whole program just goes POOF and disappears when you float your cursor over a file in an Open/Export/Save/Import dialog. The solution I've found to that seems to be to use the keyboard to navigate folders as much as possible, and to keep the cursor off any files in the folder lists. Doesn't happen all the time as it's a hard one to pin down but it does seem to happen more often when I'm doing it for the second time since opening Milkshape, and especially when I'm importing textures I just made in Photoshop.
Is it that... or something else? :)

Omg it is exactly that, it goes poof! But why it has started now all of the sudden? Thanks for the advice, i 'll try and do that although i never used keyboard before and i take it i'll have problem navigating to folders lol
Is there any other way in saving progress except exporting it? Cause i kept doing the same thing today over and over as it would crash and wouldnt save.

It seems to be intermittent. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it does it every time. A problem I'm -well- familiar with - it had me crying before I figured out that keyboard navigation works.
You can still use the mouse to navigate the folder structure (up, back, etc.) as long as you don't float the cursor over the actual filenames - so you can start typing "afbody" and it'll pop up the filename and you can hit the down arrow and Enter and open/save/whatever.
There's generally two ways of saving - either save an MS3D file, the whole document as-is, or export in whatever format you'll be using (OBJ, GMDC, SMD, etc.)

Milkshape crashes (goes poof) on me if I keep my files I'm working on on the desktop. When I move the files to a folder, for example under My Documents, the crashing stops
