Adding a new fixture library does not work in Hog 4 OS


Adding a new fixture library in Hog 4 OS does not work. A "Failed to create directory" error might be given.

Description/Explanation of Issue

The error given is usually caused by a library already existing with the same name as the new library. This error is most commonly seen when adding or updating a full fixture library on the console or in Hog 4 PC.


The solution is to rename the new fixture library prior to loading it into Hog 4 OS.

  1. Rename the file to whatever you like, even adding a 1 at the end of the name is fine. Make sure you leave the .hog4lib extension.

After renaming the library, try adding the fixture library again.
