If I recall correctly, this happened to me once when I was working on a very
complicated scene with loads of stuff in it, with some very complex
parenting going on. That however wasn't the problem. If memory serves (And I
might be wrong) this could be something to do with you having deleted, or
moved a layer on one of your objects. I'm sure it was something to do with
that. Scene wanted to parent items together, but because a layer which was
in the chain had been moved/deleted, it didnt tell me it was missing, it
just gave that message, or something like that. It really was a long time
ago now, but it was something upon those lines, im sure of it. But I'm not
guarenteeing anything here, I am really trying to think A) what caused it,
and B)How I fixed it. I know I did fix it though if that is any comfort to
you. Just took a while to work out what the cause was.
Maybe what you should do first, is watch what is loading at the point of
*, and look into that object and see if anything has changed. If
neccisary, add a box or whatever to all missing layers in the identified
object (If that is what it is stopping on during loading the scene), and see
if that lets it load the suspicious object. Hope that makes sense. Again, I
might be wrong on this, and I might be thinking of another problem I had,
but worth a look anyway
