It worked perfectly until today, now I get this error no matter what I choose....

"Line 1322, invalid object method writedata()"


Lw 9.2, winxp

And I was using it for a project I am working on now...HEEEELPPPPP.....anyway I am loading all manual but it's really cool to change from the library and see it almost doing nothing.. ;-P

Cheers:

ermmm... at this point it's trying to save a new Background Ball. By default it will try to put it in your content dir/objects, but if it can't find it you should be asked for another spot.

Several scenarios are possible, why it cannot save it:
- Your content dir is writeprotected or inaccessible
- You have just run out of diskspace
- The last object you've loaded is coming from out of your content dir (9.2 has added some strange behaviour regarding content management - when an object comes from somewhere else, it tries to be extra smart and redirects the objects directory - in this case eventually to something that it cannot write to)

What you could do:
- watch the status message on the bottom of the Layout window and notice the path it tries to save the ball object to.
- you can also try setting your content dir to something entirely invalid before running the script, forcing it to ask you for a place to save the ball.
- or load in an object that is definetely coming from the right content dir.

Let me know if some of this worked. So I can pin down th eproblem further and fix it in a future version...

Try the latest version, it might be fixed. I cannot really tell, because I never got that error, so I am pretty mich tapping in the dark. I tried to make the background ball saving a bit more fail-safe, and in any case it should fail gracefully at least  Undecided

Get version 0.99:  http://www.hdrlabs.com/sibl/downloads/sibl-loader_lightwave.zip

and tell me if that fixes it for you.
Otherwise I am running out of version numbers...
