Great! 11 minutes to go

By the use of a download manager, I got it downloaded in about 40mins...quite fast. I guess, dl-speed will decrease in a couple of hours.

cheers,
toby

just been testing - got it to bomb already - opening an Max 09 file.

Viewport is fast, but have strange z sorting issues on some scenes, and frame rate goes from 60fps to .09fps then back up again. Could be a driver issue though, so will update.

just loaded the same scene into Max 2011, no crash, so file not corrupt.

Loading the scene into will crash 2012 everytime, looks like I've found quite a nasty bug. Submitted report anyway so they can check it out.

Does this mean I get a badge for first major bug on release? or maybe a t-shirt?

For those who are normally getting a boxed version and are looking for their serial/product key you can find them here:

subscription center -> contract administration -> coverage report -> click on your contract in the popup and the serial / product key is listed in the lower part of the screen. (took me a whiel to figure that out )


The installer looks slick, only the girl on the space bike has her hand dangerously close to the spinning turbo fan.. if I'll run into any other important issues I'll post them too

No, neither option is compatible with iray at this time.

hmmm, I'm having trouble finding old Max 2009 files that won't bomb 2012 - this is a bigger problem than I thought.

So far tested 5 files, all of them load into Max 2011, all of them bomb Max 2012. No plugins used in these files either.

have you tried to import them with merge ? this way you may find if this is caused by a specific type of objects like lights or camera...

Since I skipped 2010 and 2011 I'll be loading mostly 2009 files, wonder if I have to skip 2012 as well?

Anything special about your files (CAT, custom attributes etc.)? What happens if you resave those files in 2011 and open in 2012?

That's a disappointment but thanks for trying.
