I'm starting to find my DAZ difficulties kind of funny. It turns out I somehow installed two versions, 4 and 4.1 - and they were kind of splitting resources. I can get stuff to install in 4.1 but not 4, so I guess that's what I'll be using. Even though I'd been using 4 until now and 4.1 refuses to recognize it has access to the basic genesis figure unless I manually drag it in from the folder...
I can't seem to import the scenes I made in the old one, but I haven't gotten too far into looking for help yet though.
I managed to get the later Genesis models working, but I found out I had gotten an old 'Victoria' model years ago. (I tried DAZ but my computer wasn't up for it, there was a lag of 10 to 30 seconds between telling it to shift a limb and it doing it, so I decided not to bother) I can't tell any big differences between Genesis 2, 3, and 8 yet since I've moronically decided to just poke around for myself.
I have a few folders of poses that the programs can't find on their own, but if I click and drag the pose file into DAZ the figure will get in that pose. About half the items, like guns and benches are the same way, but the other half just give me an error that says there's no way to import that file.
It's not the worst time I've ever had with a new program, but the issues are just weird and varied so I guess that's where my amusement comes from.
