Hi again, I thought I had downloaded the latest version since I got it from the Download link on this site.. but now see it's really old..
So.. installed the new Octane and poof.. now nothing works with either Poser Pro 11 OR my previously working Poser 2014 GameDev.. argh! Same affliction on both versions.. =(
At this point, I strongly believe there is a problem with Poser and not all on Octane being broke at this moment.. The Poser DownloadManager started to hang during launching and couldn't get anything going.. So I un-installed once again all of Poser 11 Pro.. and re-installed the DL Manager.. and now nothing seems to be working as it once was.. ARGH! why fix something that wasn't broke by updating / upgrading.. when will I learn.. (frustration mode on, sorry)
I also tried installing the previously working version of Octane 18.104.22.168 and that too now no longer works.. same results.
As requested, I've uploaded a screen shot of what it looks like now and has been since yesterday. Octane isn't rendering, and though NOW i can change the settings, it is so sluggish as heck but Task manager doesn't show it as suspended or any CPU load what so ever..
Something is seriously broken here.. betting on Poser being broke.. =(
Waiting on SM to get back to me with some help, hopefully..
Just an ADDON to this.. I finally managed to get an "error report" by forcing Octane to do something.. and when it hung up and needed forceful shutting down, i got this error report pop up stating:
Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'meshNodes'
It points to the "Poser 11/" folder for some reason.. and I can tell ya that there ISN'T such a folder what so ever on the system after I un-installed it earlier today.. So for SOME reason, it's looking for love in all the wrong places... ?
perhaps this is the clue to what's going wrong with this setup now?
