Stumbled upon a strange thing in my latest project.
Every time I close the project and re-open it all the events in sub folders get copied to the root folder, the multitrack events keeps their automations and the simple events will turn into multitrack events. If I close down and re-open the project again another set of copied events will appear beneath the old ones.
I’m using Mac and tried it in a couple of different versions of Fmod Designer including the latest release. Currently I’m using 4.42.05 because of the sound-definition preview crash in later versions.
I’m able to simply delete all of them before I make a build of the project, but it’s still somewhat annoying. Any ideas?
Hmm, this sounds like a certain little-known issue that occurs when a project’s ‘template file’ property is set to the project’s own filename and path. You should probably check whether that’s the case – look at the ‘template file’ property in the ‘Project Properties’ window.
Templates are supposed to be stored in an external file, you see. Because project files and template files use an almost identical format, Designer will load a project file as its own template file without trouble – but when you save, it will save both sets of data into the same file, meaning that every event will appear twice. Then, when you re-load, it will load the saved events as both events and templates once more – and then when you save, it will save them twice each, and so on. Effectively, if the problem you’re seeing is the one I’m describing, the number of events in your project is being doubled every time you load and save.
If that doesn’t solve your problem, I suggest sending a copy of your project file to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a detailed description of the problem, so that we can try and work out what’s going wrong.
[quote="gumviktor":211wera9]Yeah, I set the template file to another directory and that fixed it.[/quote:211wera9]Incidentally, if you’re not actually using templates for anything, you could simply leave the ‘Template File’ project property’s field blank.
