Random files in Repository Browser
« on: Jan 31, 14, 07:15:50 AM »

What gives? I can't find these things locally, and I can't delete them, either.

Not sure why you wouldn't see them locally - but one thing for future reference, do not put spaces in ANY files/folders.

Did you perhaps download a sand textures pack from somewhere and it had that stuff in it?

Make sure to follow the terrain tutorial, especially with filename or they won't show up in the engine.

For instance, diffuse needs _d.dds at the end, sand_01_d.dds

Normals need _n instead, sand_01_n.dds

Stuff you may have known already, just re-iterating for kicks.

Still can't find out what the .ini and .meta files are, I don't get it.

Those are files you added, looks like they are part of a purchased sand textures pack. Though the desktop.ini could be a result of odd use of an unzipping tool as well. You can simply delete them from the repository browser.

But they are still listed in the local view, but not in Explorer.

I'm assuming that means you have "hide system and special files" enabled in windows. Windows by default hides things like ini files from users, so that only advanced users would enable the ability to see hidden files and modify them. I do not recommend turning off this option as it's more likely that you could modify files which you don't understand their purpose.

When I synchronize, it automatically uploads those hidden system files, which, I believe, is not intended behavior (and it also had not been happening before).

The repo will take all files from your local. Specially as intended, otherwise you wouldn't be able to upload a large number of file types. It's not recommended to put junk files into directories you plan to synchronize, or to unzip 3rd party files into folders you plan to synchronize.
