- FIXED: Bug in Bake Sculpties when “keep center” was checked.
Known bugs in 2.3.3:
Bake tool: When you are baking multi-part objects and if you do
not want to use “Keep Center” then you must apply
Object -> Transform -> Center New
to each part before baking. Otherwise weird results can happen.
It is not yet clear what causes this problem.
09-sep-2010 FIX: Object Center sometimes jumps away from geometrical center during bake
When an object was scaled in object mode, the calculation of the object center was done wrong. So it could happen that an object center jumps way out of focus and potentially causes very odd behaviour after baking. This problem has been fully solved and object centers should now be placed at the correct location in any situation.
09-sep-2010 FIX: Objects sometimes jups away from its original position during bake
Occasionally an object jumps to a different location directly after bake. Usually you can get the object back to its original location by hitting CTRL-z. We think we found the cause and fixed it.
09-sep-2010 FIX: Multipart baker sometimes creates LSL-file with wrong object scale
The symptom is that the LSL-script generates all parts of the object in nearly the same size regardless of their actual size. The problem was caused by the “optimized resolution” feature. This feature actually uses different BoundingBoxes for the parts of the set, while the original algorithm used the same BoundingBox for all parts and adjuted the size of the parts by reducing the number of available grid points.
03-sep-2010 FIX: WIN File association “.blend” was not correctly resolved.
When Jass was told to server the .blend file association, it did not find the correct jass executable and/or the associated python. The problem raises especially when multiple versions of blender and jass have been installed on your system. This problem is now fixed.
03-sep-2010 FIX: WIN File association was taken from other app (blender or jass)
Jass was silently overwriting the file association entry in the Windows registry. The new installer now tests if the association has already been granted to another program and asks if is allowed to switch the association over to the new installation..
01-sep-2010 FIX: WIN problems when switching between PRO and PUB versions of jass
When you want to use JASS-PRO and JASS-PUB on the same computer you might have faced some weird baheviour. The main problem is that all versions of Jass and blender share the same application folder. This is a limitation introduced by blender itself and we did not want to fix blender at this time. Instead we now check during startup of Jass if the Jass version matches the version stored in the application folders. When Jass detects a missmatch, it will fix the application folder on the fly by copying the matching scripts version from the installation directory. During this process Jass also detects if you have modified your default start page and in that case it asks you if you want to migrate your start page.
NOTE: This fix is only partial and it does not solve all problems with sharing of application folders between different applications. We eventually will fix blender’s behaviour and the way it searches for its application data directory right in the blender code base. Such that it will become fully independent from the blender data.
01-sep-2010 FIX: WIN: internal usage of PYTHONPATH/PYTHONHOME caused problems
We have been told that JASS does not cooperate well with other tools which also use an embedded PYTHON. In particular users have reported that the parallel usage of blender 2.5 was broken. We have taken care about that and we have completely removed any usage of environment variables from JASS. Furthermore Jass will now automatically decide if it will use the embedded python interpreter (which is installed by default together with JASS) or the python installed on your system. Note that if both are available Jass will use the embedded interpreter.
28-aug-2010 NEW: WIN-Installer now has 2 fully supported installation modes
In previous releases the installation of blender often was a problem on Windows-7 and Vista-systems. We now have sorted out most of the issues and have created a new installer which supports 2 installation strategies:
Multi User Installation
In this installation mode the application data of blender is copied on demand to each users application data folder. Each user can then modify and customize the application data separately from all others. i.e. it becomes possible to customize different default start pages for different accounts. Or add different sets of scripts to different accounts.
Single user mode
In this installation mode the entire application data is copied into the installation directory. In order to avoid permission issues the application data folder has been “unsecured” by granting full access to all authorised users.
Please note that you can switch between the 2 installation modes by rerunning the Jass-installer.
28-aug-2010 NEW: WIN new utility program factorySettings resets to the Jass
When you are operating in multi user mode, then an update of Jass will not automatically update the user application data. Or sometimes you might have corrupted your application data and want to return to the factory settings of Jass ? For these cases we have added the new program “factorySettings”. This program does a copy from the safe (and never touched) factory application data and overwrites your personal applicationData folder.
Important note: After a reinstallation of Jass or after an update of Jass in multi user mode the existing application data folders of the users are NOT automatically updated. So in order to get the newest scripts each user must run the factorySettings script once after upgrade.
The script is available from:
Start -> Programs -> Jass-PRO -> factorySettings
FIX: MAC-OSX Wrong file permission.
The repackaging of blender/jass for Mac-OSX introduced wrong file permissions on the scripts folders. Blender could not open these files and thus they where not accessible in the program.
FIX: Mac-OSX Compatibility code for Mac was missing.
The MAC-OSX code for Jass-2.1.2 has never been stored in our versioning system. Hence
FIX: Bake of multiple parts with “Keep Center” was broken.
The size of objects was calculated wrong when “keep Center” was selected together with “Optimize Reolution”. Now you can Use “Keep Center” together with “Optimize Resolution”. However there is a remaining bug, see below.
FIX: Import of .obj files did not auto-create the UV-maps
The File -> Import -> Second Life sculptie is able to import from an .obj file. We have changed the API for the sculptify object tool and forgot to propagate this change to the import function.
NEW: “Optimize Resolution” now always visible but disabled
The “Optimize Resolution” feature is only usefull in multi üpart bakes. In 2.3.2 the function has been hidden from the GUI for single sculptie bakes. This caused a bit of confusion. Hence i have changed the GUI such that now the option always displays but is disabled for single sculptie bakes.
NEW (MAC Support for JASS-2.3.2-PRO) :
I managed to eventually release the JASS-2.3.2 MAC-OSX PRO version, so MAC users are now also up to date. MAC-Users please just go to the Jass-Shop and buy the JASS-PRO version as everybody else too. The vendor will provide you a Download-link containing 2 separate binaries, one for Windows users, the other for MAC users. The MAC installation video still applies. Only the release number has changed.
IMPORTANT: If you have already purchased JASS-PRO for Windows, JASS-PRO For MAC is free for you. All Customers please either use your received Inventory link, or if you do not know what that is, go to the Shop and click on the Update Vendor to obtain you personal Inventory link!
NEW(Separate Scripts archive):
If you just want to get the PRO scripts, we now provide a third binary containing just that. So if you are running on Unix, Linux or any other operating system which we do not directly support, but which is capable to run blender, again buy the PRO edition and then download and unzip the scripts archive. Then install the scripts into the scripts directory of your blender-instance and you are done.
FIXED (Bug with Baker tool):
A customer found a bug in the JASS-PRO-2.3.1 release when baking sculpties with “Keep center” checked. This broke the sculptmesh in a very odd way such that only one half of the sculptie was baked. This problem has been fixed.
please report back if anything is broken. In that case we are either going to fix your issues as soon as possible or we will refund you if you prefer.
