Part 6179 error in Studio


Part 6179 error in Studio
#1
I can't get 6179.dat to load properly in Studio—its subfile 6179s01 is invisible and only the quad of the tup surface is rendered. (Interestingly, the one patterned version of the part does load correctly.) Can anyone reproduce?

Strange... it worked fine for me directly for 6179. For 6179px0 I had to put 6179px0.dat AND 6179s01 in CustomParts. I looked into Studio library (C:\Program Files\Studio 2.0\ldraw\parts), it contains previous version of 6179 that was not yet subparted, so there's no reason for it to use 6179s01?

Hmm, what about the two stickered versions? For me, they also load with the subfile missing.

Would you mind posting the older version of 6179? I think I see what the problem is (I had updated the ldraw folder inside Studio, thinking it was a good idea—perhaps falsely)…

The Batman one loads fine, the other is missing the sticker.

OK, putting that old file back into my Studio LDraw folder worked. What also worked was your solution, putting both 6179.dat and s/6179s01.dat (the current LDraw versions) into my custom parts folder—but only as long as I had the appropriate s/ sub-directory.

So the issued is solved, now there's just the matter of curiosity: why didn't it work in the first place? why was it bad for me to have the most current version of the part in the Studio folder? And why was the patterned version messed up for you, but not for me?

I've learnt many things about studio library management, but some still puzzle me....
