Forum rules
This forum is designed for you to get HELP with building fixtures, Please make an attempt if you get stuck YOU must upload your partial fixture file (as an exported fixture file) so we can point you in the right direction if you don't do this you won't LEARN and if you don't learn you will may never be able to get the fixtures you require. It is Very hard to make fixtures for people when we don't have the same light at hand to test it with after all having the light in front of you makes programing so much easier! That's why we will help but rarely build any fixtures for you. You Alone are the best person to build your fixtures if you need help ask if you want it building for you Don't....
or alternativaly if your willing to pay for fixtures to be created then go here : ... on_service

You can Upload your fixtures as attachments to your posts so there is no need to supply email details Please post any fixtures in the download forum if you require help please contact an Admin/Moderator.

sometimes I had an error saying " Path not Found " and so, since I had a saved show I didnt bother, since when i load it, everything was alright again.

Now I need to do a new patch for a small gig on friday with different rented lights

Everytime i try to add fixtures i get the message for example "Plastic LED.fxt : Path not found: "C:/FreeStyler/Fixtures/"
Mostly it happens with custome made fixtures, but also with premade like the sharpys.

When i delete all lights and want to add for example 8 LED-Pars it allows me to add 1, and the remaining ones are shown some "empty" in the fixture list

to be sure i didnt messed up the fixtures i upload all my custome mades.

If there is someone who had a similiar problem, or knows whats going on, im in a little bit in trouble.

I am running 3.6.49. I downloaded and Imported your 4 fixture definitions and then added them to the Freestyler workspace. I did not encounter the Path Not Found issue.

The fixtures do not have a picture. Is this a possible source of your issue?

In the Freestyler directory you should find a file named freestyler.ini. Open and look for the lines starting with the text remember (ex. remember1 and remember1_file). See if these are correct - if not then delete these lines and save the file.

Copy your Chases, Fixtures, Locations and Que folder to a safe location, uninstall, install the latest version, add/merge the folders and you should be alright.

Had this problem with older versions where somehow paths were messing up for some reason. Even with the files their selves still available on the disks.
