@Piboso

As you stopped us asking more you wrote:

The filename ( but not the internal name, displayed in the user interface ) of paints has always been limited to 31 characters.
It is now enforced to avoid crashes, memory corruption and other issues.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Can you tell us the file name length now please that might help to start with

So basically I am screwed for the database and will have to start again and hudreds of paints can no longer be used without renaming the file name, then uploading, then downloading then testing ingame then uploading again and posting it all correct? This is a nightmare for me and will make online look bad as paints will be missing everywhere its NOT a small thing to start again. I have 16250 files to check!!!!!

Edit: its no biggy only 8.43 GB and 2893 pnt files I have to do no problem...................

The frustration is understandable.
Maybe the community can help renaming the files?

If this task will turn out to be too problematic then it will be addressed in the next GP Bikes update.

I don't personally see why it was changed in the first place? Never had an issue with it, never even knew there was one since I started (beta 12)

@ Piboso

Ok, so it is just enforced you say but I always kept to within the 31 characters and my files within that are no longer working so it must be a bug?

Example:

IAS Racing DD AGV Pista 2.pnt  WORKS in beta 18b   25 characters

IAS Racing DD AGV Pista 2016.pnt WONT WORK in beta 18b ? 28 characters

This would be good if a bug?

Thanks Piboso

But I can't name a paint file (not internal) more than 10 characters... Never mind 31 characters


And there was no crashes etc that I noticed, and none that were on the forum's reported.

I had

'MP Racing suit' (14 chars)
Not working


Now it's 'MPRT Suit' (9chars) works

I dont have any paints over 28 characters and all over 26 do not work

Seems a bit of an odd problem then MPR

are certain characters now not allowed? or lowercase lol

Is there a correlation in the length of the full path of the paint files?

Thank you for the report.
Unfortunately there is indeed a bug. The code mistakenly counts the file extension as part of the 31 characters, therefore at the moment the limit is 27 characters.

OK thanks for the  update Piboso................can you PLEASE fix it as it is most file names will be a problem if this is the case?

The limit is 26 by the way 27 wont work been testing
