    SW 11.5.0.595 severe bug

    Necromanthus Level 2
      Hello folks,

      A piece of advice to all: do NOT install Shockwave plugin v11.5.0.595!
      And here is why:
      SW 11.0 : http://necromanthus.com/Images/StrykeMC.jpg
      SW 11.5 : http://necromanthus.com/Images/StrykeMC_SW115.jpg
      It has a severe bug text member (height) related.
      There're hundreds of v10 and v11 online projects messed up because of this new introduced bug.
      Until Adobe fix it (and update the SW plugin download), you should stick with the previous plugin (11.0.3.470).

      cheers

          Thanks necromathus.

          Usually, I'll keep my plugins/apps/drivers up-to-date as soon as the updates - or better to say patches comes out. Since 11 and since they pre-choosen installing the unnecessary rubbish, my guts says "becareful with Shockwave/Director"

          I wonder whats going on with that team.. they are professionals right?

            A wise decision.
            In fact, I keep them all (full installers) starting with v8.5
            The main problem is that v11.5.0.595 is a bad promotion for Director Shockwave!
            There're hundreds of (very popular) shockwave pieces looking terrible because of this text related bug.

            I get the feeling they don't have a QA team ... :)

                I got a presentation/demo last Saturday. Luckily I've ported all the stuff to Blender - previous project were run on 11 (Developed on 10). I've experienced this kind of frustration years ago - something about Havok and Director (which I can't recall what)

                  Let's hope not.

                  I just talked to Allen P and they're working on it.
                  Why now and not before the SW 11.5 player release?
                  I have no idea.
