Version confusion with KRAY 2.59

Hi There,
I'm getting version errors after installing 2.59 in LW 11.6.3.
After installing 2.59 the Kray GUI says 2.2. Also the 'Use KRAY Instances' flag is gone from Plugins tab.

See attached images.
For the sake of testing, Plugins completely removed and deleted from configs before re-installing new versions.
I reinstalled plugin and all Common .lsc's from the download packages.

We seem to be getting inconsistant versioning in LW.

With 2.55 installed:
- GUI version: 'Kray Options (2.5 Build 1223 LSC) (This seems incorrect to me? Should it be 2.55?)
- Plugin version: 'Kray 2.55 for Lightwave 11.6+

2.55 Install


After Installing 2.59:
- GUI version: 'Kray Options (2.2 Build 1224 LSC) (Shouldn't this be 2.59?)
- Plugin version: 'Kray 2.59 for Lightwave 11.6+

2.59 Install


And this is a list of the LSC files that were added from the 'Common' downloaded package for 2.59. Some of these appear quite old, is this correct?

Thanks,

Is correct. GUI and Render Engine has different numeration. As you see some scripts are very old because is nothing to do with them. Probably K2.59 is pre last version of Kray and history of plugin will finish on version 2.60 (depends from Newtek and G. how long he wants support Kray 2.x in LW).
The most important in number in Kray Render Window. If you have 2.59 it means you have the newest version of Kray.

Ok great. Thanks.
Quick question - I assume the 2.55 'Common' lsc files (UI 2.5) would work Ok with Kray plugin 2.59?

The 2.5 UI has the 'Use KRAY Instances' flag, the 2.2 UI included in the 2.59 package has this removed.
We still maintain some older scenes that use Kray instances instead of Native LW, and this flag is handy for quick proofing.

Regards, - Matt.

I think you can mix ls scripts but if are problems, please write here and I will post to G.
