fpic loads a random picture

Jun 12 2006 | 6:03 pm


having a rather strange issue with fpic. i have it set to read/display a
certain file with a loadbang, but it puts up a random image from a
completely different folder for a brief moment before dispalying the image i
want. it’s usually the same image, which resides in a folder at the Hard
Drive level. I’m working with a patch, abstractions, and images that all
reside in a folder on my desktop.

any help here would be greatly appreciated.

thanks a lot.

Hi Owen,

Are you sure you dont have an image on your HDD which has the same name as the one which is trying to be loaded ?

I had problems with this that even if the names werent exactly the same, if they were in the same folder it would read the incorrect file/image. In the end I just ended up moving the incorrect images out of the folder which was specified in the file preferrences.
