Two questions: First is that I have been having a 'List index out of bounds' problem with Apo 2.09 jk. It only happens to a few files that I migrated over from an old pc to the new. The second, I really like the 2.08 3D hack version. Only it won't render anything now. Any ideas on how to fix either problem?

List index out of bounds is from parameters calling for plugins or secondary params for variations like julian that have sub-params. that are not loaded into your program thru the usage of plugins.

as for your question on apo 3d I will need a more specific explaination of what is going on in order to give you a proper answer. what are the error messages you receive or anything that shows failure.

Not sure what to say... apo 2.08 3d hack seem's to be working now.

Understand the problem with the list inex out of bounds. Is there a work around that would resolve the problem?
cmptrwhz Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looking at the text of the param file and see what plugins you need to load. And trying to ensure you use scripts that have been updated to work with the newer apo. Its a pain but once you catch them all it will be better. Also one other thing is if you have a faulty plugin you can get that error too. You can remove all the plugins from the folder and add them back one at a time till you find the one that causes the error.

Probably wouldn't hurt to remove all the plugins and download them again.

Thanks for everything.

I have them split up into tested and non tested here [link] feel free to grab whatever plugins you desire.

Many thanks! Yesterday I was thinking of finding all the
plugins I could find and put them into one folder. Now
I don't have to do it. Many thanks to the person that
compiled them all. :clap:
