well, that’s not helpful :). There’s got to be a .plist, or com.xxxx or xls file somewhere in the Mac Prefs to delete. (ps… I’m on Big Sur/2020 Mac Pro, blah blah)… Just having a hell of a time with it all… ALSO had to do clean deletion and installs of Cypher2 and Strobe 2 to get them to work as well.
Well… I tried deleting all the preferences files from ~users/name/Preferences. Deleted them all, then ran License Mgr again for a refresh… I figured the com.bfddrums.bfdpaths.plist would do it. Still crashing. Don’t suppose it would do any good to upload a crash log?
Look in User/Library/Application Support/BFD Drums/BFD3/. Data Paths.xml and BFD_User_Preferences.pref are probably what you want. I’d back up that entire directory and blow it all away, and then start from scratch.
I don’t think it does. For some reason, I came to the conclusion that the .plist isn’t the golden source for configuration, and is generated by config that is stored elsewhere.** Don’t ask me why they’d do it that way. Maybe it’s just how the Apple API works.
**The gory details, if you care to know, are that I have this weird thing where standalong sometimes shows up way at the bottom. This goes back to v3.3 or earlier. Anyway, I tried to fix that in v3.4 using Xcode, and found my changes to the plist were simply overwritten.
The FXpansion ones are for FXpansion BFD, i.e. v3.3. They’re completely irrelevant to BFD Drums BFD, i.e. v3.4.
@kafka thanks so much for your insight. I simply blew away that directory and then the list was empty upon starting up the standalone. YAY! Then I did a scan of BFD samples folder and TA-DE-F’IN-DA all is well.
WTF support couldn’t tell me that is beyond belief when I remember asking [paraphased] “is there a way to simply delete every entry in the list and start over with a fresh scan?”.
