Just opened some of my projects with build 1264. The legs-wiggle is less or even completely gone. Great job, Steve.
I can't wait for the future builds.

One think I didn't quite get at first is how to try the different solvers. I thought I can select in between them. But the one used by an8 is great.

Thanks, Steve and have a great New Year, bro!

Steve: Yes, I usually run it as admin. It is most probably the antivirus fault. I've added an8 to the "Do not scan" list. Now it seems to work like every time.
The weird part, as I said, was that I didn't get any message like I did before "Please wait, we are scanning this program", so it was impossible to tell if the antivirus was holding an8. The fact that I couldn't end processes in task message had to do with the antivirus also... I believe.

Steve: I was trying to figure out what was the problem. What would delay or stop an exe file?
For example, on my old hard drive, my antivirus used to scan any new exe file when double-clicked it.
     It showed a message "Scanning" and had a menu where I could check "Always trust this file" After that, everything was fine.
But now it doesn't. And this couldn't explain why files I already have on the hard drive are stopped/delayed. Maybe it didn't have anything to do with the antivirus. Who knows?  This time, I couldn't even "End process" in the task manager for all the copies that didn't run. Had to restart the comp.
   I usually don't touch the setting. Any new build works and should work just time every time.
The wiggle happens when playing the animation, and also in the render. Usually, I solve it by modifying the animation a bit. Yes, I was thinking one of the reasons could be I have more bones, but I believe this problem will stop when the end-effector bone will have the orientation locked. Can't wait  for this! :D Thank you, man!

Hey Steve.
I've managed to make 1263 work. I believe it was a local problem on my laptop. But I still don't know what was the cause.
Before that, (see the vid) I created a new folder and copied all the builds in there. Only a couple of them run. You can see in the Task Manager the ones that didn't run and the one that did run.
Also, I show in the vid the problems with those Spider/Werewolf legs, and the weird wiggle it happens.

System info (for the laptop, where this problem happened):
OpenGL Vendor: Intel
OpenGL Renderer: Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500
OpenGL Version: 4.4.0 - Build
OS Version: Windows 7 (6.1) build 7600

Forgot to mention, when right click and End Process on those an8 copies in the Task Manager, they won't close. I need to restart every time to get rid of them.
An8 it shows about 30,000K for memory when it works, but it only show 108K for 1263, and it won't run :( :( :(

Hey Steve. Build 1263 it won't run. I double click it, triple click it, quadruple-click it and nothing...When I go to Windows Task Manager I can see all the an8 1263 instances opened, but they won't run.
Any an8 build it opens in 2-3 seconds, this new one, it doesn't. And it also shows 108K for memory...

Cool, Steve.
I'm sure you're gonna do an amazing job again. 1258 is the best so far. Had no problems with it.

Btw, just a quick question. This is not a problem, more like a ... I dunno.
So, I've got 2 machines: my laptop and my desktop. In the last year, I barely turned on my desktop. I usually work on my laptop. But there's a big difference I noticed today in the way anim8or is shown.
On my laptop, it has the gray background but on my desktop it's purple. Since in the last year I only used anim8or on my laptop (which it shows gray), I could have sworn the gray BG was a change you made.
My question is: Do you know what influence this? Me personally, I just love the gray BG. How can I change it so my desktop will show the same gray bg? Thanks.

johnar Yeah, sound like what happened to my character. Anim8or just crashes when I try to move let's say the character's pelvis, with the feet locked.
But I'm 1000000000000000% sure Steve will fix that. He's a genius :D :D :D

Oh yea, in that screen shot it seems I must have clicked on 1250. I have all versions in the same folder. Didn't noticed. My bad!

But the consistent initial problem with the 1261 is the crashing when try to move the torso of my character, while the feet are locked.
I dunno why this happens, and never happened in the previous releases. I believe I will still use the 1258 untill the next reliease :(

No problem, bro! We all appreciate everything you do with anim8or.
So far, the best version for me was 1258. No problem there whatsoever. If only it had orientation lock :D :D :D

Then I tried to open your IKtext.an8 and gave me those controller errors :(
...and also to my other projects...

The l initial crashes happened when I try to move the body by bones, the feet being locked...
I don't have this problem with the previous versions...
