An element name will become incorrect if a previous scene is loaded by 3ds Max 2013. :wacko:

Maybe, it is a unicode problem of 3dsMax 2013.


I am checked on 3ds Max 2013 English and Japanese Language mode on Windows Japanese.


Before 3dsMax 2012 with no problem.

Hi Eduard,


Thank you for this release. I appreciate you being prompt with updating GrowFX to support 2013.


I have also noticed that opening a file in 2013 that was initially created in 2012 swaps to using the Japanese language. I am from Australia and using the English language. This issue does not occur when creating a new GrowFX object in a fresh 2013 scene.


It's not a big deal, but I thought I would flag this also.


Thanks again,
