    Do you have a problem with installer stucked at downloading .NET Framework?
    Then use Quixel Suite 2.0.2 offline installer [without .NET 4.6 downloader].

    But you will need to install .NET 4.6 on your machine manually if you don't have it already.

    No 2.0.2 available, it's 2.0.1 on Quixel.se. And link posted by alekseypindrus contain a Highrisk trojan (360 total security).

    So err... What's the verdict on this file?

    It seems odd that the official site still has 2.0.1 and a forum has a newer file flagging up as a virus lol.

    Hacked and sabotaging forum account or safe?

    Please advise >.<;

    I think we wait for official Quixel release.
    Downloading an installer from "http://d85clmw03d1co.cloudfront.net/.... is probably no good idea. :#

    Ah I just restart Quixel and the splash screen now says 2.0.2 hehe,
    It states it is a Patch, if I did not download the 2.0.1 patch will 2.0.2 include all the 2.0.1 contents?
    I know usually this isn't an issue but I want to make absolutely certain as I am paranoid and working on a project for University >.<

    Huzzah! :)

    It no longer crashes straight away when I try to bake, good job!

    I suggest you find a way to automatically handle the popups that are related to missing color profiles. Not only do they require a whole lot of confirmations from me to continue baking, but sometimes they don't get pushed to the front and it looks as if the bake froze when there is just a photohop popup behind the window that needs confirmation. Also the baking process seemed really slow, but it's hard to really compare because it handles the files I fed it very differently than the other program I made bakes with. I think an option to treat a single file as a single object and not create a single bake for every mesh group inside of it would be good. It might even be there and I have not seen it.
    It also seems hard to multitask while it's baking. The progress bar is always on top of other running programs and the mouse seemed laggy.

    I'll check back for 2.05 or so. Keep up the great work!

    That's one of our download servers. There's nothing to worry about. :smile: 

    Jinka: The 2.02 patch is just a patch - you'll need the earlier 2.01 for now!

    Martin: If you'd like to let the developers know directly, please post on the Quixel Live Support group. :smile: If you don't use Facebook, I can forward it there for you!

    • There wasn't 2.0.2 on quixel.se or updater because it wasn't pushed there at the moment.
    • There's a link in original post for 2.0.2 — just click on «Grab it here!»
    • My link is to official Quixel server, you can get the same link from Facebook group.
    • if you are really paranoid you can check from which server it will donwload if you'll use button on quixel.se
    For example, go to newly created http://quixel.se/download and hover your mouse over buttons ;)

    versan, false positive result. Be prepared, you will get 'em a lot with something like 360.
    You can always check your files on https://www.virustotal.com/ to compare results.

    Had a very hard time updating to 2.2 (weird)

    For those of you having issues I did the below and it sorted it:

    Download the quixel suite 2.0.2 offline installer.

    uninstall the quixel suite using the quixel uninstaller and delete all registry entry's from quixel.

    Update the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 via windows update and reboot.

    Turn off or disable your anti virus.

    Run the quixel suite 2.0.2 offline installer (run normally not as administrator)

    After installation close the installer and do not run quixel.

    Run quixel from the destop icon and your good to go.

    I have no idea what you guys did to this installer but it's been throwing up this issue with ASP.NET and hangs the installer:

    Updates to the IIS metabase were aborted because IIS is either not installed or is disabled on this machine. To configure ASP.NET to run in IIS, please install or enable IIS and re-register ASP.NET using aspnet_regiis.exe /i.     

    Had zero issues with the 2.1 update !!

    Cheers

    Please do so, I don't use facebook. Thanks a lot!

    @Repete: Thanks for sharing! Imho no legit software should ever require Antivirus software to be turned off. Let's hope they get this sorted out for 2.0.3. I didn't have any issues with the 2.0.2 offline installer. I just left everyting on default folders and installed straight over the old 2.0.0 version. I skipped 2.0.1, so maybe there is a chance that this is related to the issue you had with 2.0.2. Just a thought.

    Had no choice, just wanted to make sure noting was interfering with the install

    Horrible luck with installing this update - patch one or offline. I will wait until Quixel figures out how to release a stable installer...

    Mant1k0re, it is stable for most of us out there. If you want Quixel «to release a stable installer» please consider providing additional details about your problem. Better to do that in Facebook group, you will get answers much quicker there.

    can someone confirm that the airbrush painting option is now broken in 2.0.2 ?
    It is always active. Regardless of being switched on or off.

    You might wish to consider posting on the Quixel Live Support group with any error messages that would explain what's happening for us. We'd like to assist you if you're willing! :smile: 

    Defragger - if you're on Quixel Live Support, you can tag @Sameer (our 3DO engineer) and let him know that the airbrush isn't functioning correctly. He'll take a look at it ASAP! :smiley:

    Skeyper, as far as I can tell, you have a laptop with 1,366*768 resolution.
    You can resize that window (hover mouse at bottom right corner) but it will not help because you can't move it anywhere, am I right?

    I saw a similar report on Facebook. Let's hope it will be fixed for the next release.
    Maybe default window size will be lowered. Or even better — you will be able to move that window not only using upper corner but right one too.

    I would if I had any. When I click on Setup the windows becomes irresponsive and that's it. When I download the patch the windows becomes irresponsive upon hitting 100% and that's it. :/ I must have downloaded it 5 times.

    The panning speed on the camera goes way down when I change the FOV slider when 3DO is painter for mode for any DDO mask or NDO. The camera also rolls and I don't know how to unroll the camera - some additional camera controls like a roll and a reset would be nice.

    Thank you for the reports, @GCRev - I'll send this off to the developers. Regarding rolling, you can use the turntable function of 3DO to unroll models, or simply close 3DO and reopen it to see if that fixes it!

    I would ask that in the future, if you would kindly; please do not bump topics with replies that are not relevant to the topic. If you're having a particular issue, feel free to create a new thread on the subject. Cheers! :smile:
