  • New scenes & website updates

    published on 10/16/2011 3:24 PM
    I'm currently working on v2.0 of the visualizer and it will be a while longer until it can be launched since its a complete rewrite of the configuration and scene editor. Because of this I will start to upload a few new scenes as a normal user and eat my own dog food so to speak by going though the real scene upload system. I have found and fixed a few issues so far and if I find any more I'll correct them too. So if you have a nice scene feel free to upload it.

    The front page has received a 'new scenes' section. It should help when trying to quickly see if any new scenes has been uploaded. The scenes page have received a few extra tabs also to filter the existing scenes and quickly find scenes that are not included in the installer.

    Since new scenes are now uploaded to the site you have to go to the site and download the scenes manually if you like one. The visualizer already captures the scene specific file extension so it should be a quite streamlined experience. The process should works something like this.

    1. Click to download scene
    2. Go to the folder where the scene was placed or double click on it in the browsers file download window
    3. Answer yes that you want to import the scene
    4. Answer yes that you want to open the configuration window
    5. Go to the scenes tab and you should find the new scene under the 'Imported' branch

    The website have also received a few visual tweaks however you need a fairly modern browser to see them.

    Lastly the statistics page have been updated with a few new values including memory and core counts.

Thanks for the bug report! I wasn't aware of this issue before.

If you want a bug report, here is one:
Exporting a scene only works when you start the scene editor with administrative rights (I don't know the exact english phrase, my Windows is german). If you don't, you'll get the following error message:

Failed to export the scene
Der Zugriff auf den Pfad "C:\Program Files (x86)\Plane9\zdfbtmpp.1bf" wurde verweigert.
[OK]

As you see, the last part is in your OS' language - it means "Access to path ... was denied". Export works when you start the scene editor with administrator's rights.
I have Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-Bit. Plane9 v1.8.0.
The filename seems to be random, name as well as extension. Of course, the file doesn't exist - I guess it's a temporary file that's deleted afterwards.
Hope this is helpful.
