• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

[RESOLVED]Problem creation "Material template editor" with the latest version MCX.

Hi,

With the version of 30-11-2018 (changelog) I can create a template
no problem using an existing material.

But with a 2019 version it does not work I have this error message:



I have not tried on another computer.

Thanks in advance

Are you creating a new template or loading an existing one?

Hi,

I can't reproduce the problem here when I try to add new attributes to a template.

It is weird that the error mentions an old version of the DLL file. Are you sure you updated all files with the new version? Or are you loading a template saved with a much older version?
 
So for example you take any .BGL
You give him a setting ...

And if you want to save it, it puts this error message.


thanks to you ,

I'm still a bit confused. Are you applying the template to a material or making a new template?

And you still didn't answer the question if the template was made with an previous version.
 
hi,

-I'm exporting a .bgl blender output
-I do it in MCX
-I open material editor
-I do my settings
-I open material template editor
-I click on the triangle next to 'New'
-I select my material
-I rename the template
-I close (ERROR!)

Thanks

Hello,

I use the last developement version and ... I never find a "Material Template Editor" in menus or shortcuts.
Where can I find this new function ?

And at which step from your list do you get the error?

The material template editor is inside the material editor.

Hi,

The video shows a different error than you posted before. I'll see if I can reproduce this one
 
Hi,

The error in the video is because there is no folder "templates"

So it's ok, I'm going to redo a video with the previous problem.

That folder should be there if you extract the zip. Are you sure you installed the tool correctly?
 
Yes of course I install it correctly,
the folder "Templates" I had isolated it for the video ...

I'm coming with the video :)
