In beta18, I had a strange bug during which I couldn’t save anymore. I fixed errors in both xml and v4p files but most of nodes in my patch have disappeared and v4p file refuses to open.
Does anybody know where this problem could come from?
I didn’t find any strange symbole nor in the main patch or the subpatches. I just found (4 or 5 times) “ll” as value for renderstate in phongdirectional shader; I also copied the patch as several parts, everytime I succeded saving the copy.
I think I left to remake the patch following xml file!
Thanks anyway, I learned something!
Sometimes the saving just breaks down and when you save the patch is still marked as not saved. The files saved are incomplete with parts of the patch not included and tags left open so they don’t open in vvvv. You can salvage the parts of the patch that has been saved by opening the file in a text editor and manually adding missing closing tags.
This is a really critical bug since it leaves you with any previously saved patch overwritten with an incomplete one and no way I can think of to save, it seems to break copy/paste too so you can’t try to copy to a new patch and save that.
