[Fixed] Bitmap missing full.bmp
« on: September 01, 2016, 12:19:36 PM »
MAX 19.0 SP2
Vray 3.40.03
Plug-in : Forest Pack RailClone

Does anyone get this message ?
it's very annoying.
It seems due to old plug in info in my file from multiscatter ...
If i could get some help to remove it...

It looks like, that for some reason paths to Forest Pack's assets (specifically the full.bmp Distribution Map) are missing / not properly mapped under your 3ds Max's configuration accessible by Customize - Configure User Paths - External files and stored in the 3dsmax.ini. The .ini file is located by default here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Autodesk\3dsmax\<max version>\enu\3dsmax.ini

Actually, it's not necessary to configure these paths manually. When Forest is loaded, it's checking if these paths exist and if not, all of them could be added automatically (the plug-in shows a warning message).

If you've marked previously the "Do not show this message again" check-box to disable that pop-up window, you can revert it to its default value (to pop-up) by setting the checkTexturePaths = 1 in the forestpack.ini configuration file located by default at:


Hope that helps.

Best regards,

First, thanks a lot for your quick answer ! ;D

Ok, so what i have done is to modify the forestpack.ini has you explained and after restarting max i said "yes" configure the paths automatically.

It's ok !

Problem fixed !
Thanks !
