WTF

SoftImage|XSI doesn't support there being a space in the path used to install the program. So you can't put it in Program Files.

It also doesn't let you set where the user files are stored, so while my windows user profile is on E:, my SoftImage user stuff is on C:.

Yes... yes, this is 2005, I think. I wasn't sure, but I've checked, and it is.

WTF? HOW ARE THESE PEOPLE NOT BEING KEELHAULED. KEELHAUL THEM I SAY

They don't support spaces in the path, but they have a vertical bar in their product name?

Wow.

I'd say return the product. I know I would.

[rolleyes] Maybe that part of the program was written by some trainee who hadn't been paying attention in class.

I've found XSI to have quite a few annoyances like that (or at least the version created for making HL2 stuff does), the non-standard file dialogs and bad multimonitor support are the two things that annoy me most about it (If it detects you've got two monitors it just seems to assume they're both the same resolution and physically located right next to each other, when they aren't things go wrong).

Yeah, I remember it seizing my monitors and refusing to return them when I had both monitors connected previously...

This is just the mod tool, so it was free from their site (HL2 modding). But yeah. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the product.
