I've got just installed DynamicaBullet-2.78ForMaya2009_32bit. Windows 7 64 bit. Maya 2009 (both 32 and 64 bit installed in different directories).
First of all, right after installation there was no new plugin in Plug-in Manager
. So I've installed it manually:
- added Dynamica.module file into my mayaPrefs/modules folder. That file contains the following text:
+ Dynamica 2.78 C:/Dropbox/Public/Maya_settings/0-addons/Dynamica
My mayaPrefs folder is C:/Dropbox/Public/Maya_settings.
- copied installed contents of Dynamica's folder into the directory specified in Dynamica.module file (C:/Program Files (x86)/Dynamica/* -> C:/Dropbox/Public/Maya_settings/0-addons/Dynamica/*).
- copied msvcp90.dll and msvcr90.dll to the system32 folder.
- removed dynamica installed in Program Files using Windows Add/Remove programs utility
- restarted Windows
- launched Maya again.
So now it should work properly. And yes, BulletMayaPlugin.mll
plugin appears in Plug-In Manager
window and successfully loads when I click the corresponding checkbox. It also automatically creates new Dynamica
But when I click into the first shelf button (Open Main Dynamica Window) Maya freezes for a while (about 5 seconds) and then writes the following error in script editor:
// Error: Too many children in layout: frameLayout53 //
And there's no Dynamica window appeared. Here's a screenshot:
Next, if I click the same button on the shelf for the second time, the main Dynamica window appears. But something obviously wrong happens to the tab names and (maybe, I don't know) there's some tabs or buttons missing. 'Cause previous error mentioned something about that. Here's second screenshot:
I've tried it in both versions of Maya (32 and 64 bit, installing corresponding version of Dynamica). And the error is still there. I've even cleared my entire mayaPrefs folder (except for mayaPrefs/modules/Dynamica.module
file and mayaPrefs/0-addons/Dynamica
folder with all contents). But result is the same.
Looks like Dynamica is working (at least it creates active/passive primitives), but it's kinda weird to press the button twice for getting window pop up. And red error in command line is annoying, too.
I'm not sure if this version of Dynamica is stable. And if not then is it a bug or I'm doing something wrong. But it would be nice if someone explain how to fix that.
P.S.: sorry for my bad english
I've tried to explain the problem as best as I can.
