Xfile loading update problem

Hi there, I’ve been having a problem with the xfile node where if you feed it a string for the first time (i.e. it hasn’t loaded a mesh yet) it doesn’t seem to recognize that it is getting a string, and won’t load a model.

If you try to press the reload inlet on the xfile node then the console outputs an error suggesting that it is trying to load the directory that the patch is in (I assume this is some sort of default value).

If you mouse over the filename inlet of the xfile node however it finally decides that there actually is a string coming in and it loads the model just fine.

You can find a patch demonstrating this issue at:

Hopefully it’s just a quick fix!
