I'm using the Intel version of Lightwave 6.5 and find that I'm getting some very strange return values from requester objects. For instance, this code segment
// slider to set KEY POSE OFFSETS
tstep = ctlslider("Key Offet (secs)",2,1,10);
always returns a value of 58066776, irrespective of the actual value set by the slider.
Also, this segment
// filerequester to get filename
c3 = "path.mot";
outfile = ctlfilename("Save Filename",c3);
results in the string 'outfile' begin set to the sum 586065144.
Anyone any ideas about what's happening here and how to set things right? Is it simply a matter of data conversion?
