I think if you're running it, then it might, if you weren't... I'm not sure what's going on.

The post though, it kinda dies at the end though I know jje1000 managed to do it since they showed a wip of it on their tumblr

Does this happen to you as well? Is there some other effect cloner tool? A 64 bit might run better.
I'm looking at the issue section here https://code.google.com/archive/p/s3pi-wrappers/issues
there's a download here https://code.google.com/archive/p/s...ppers/issues/13
I downloaded it but like how or where do I put this file?

Is the one you want. I would try extracting it with 7zip NOT winrar, because WinRAR will corrupt the wrappers ^- ~ and import them into you helpers folder in s3pe, if not, just the S3PE folder (Where you can find the s3pe.exe)

Still no luck, I've been searching around apparently it's due to garbage collection not being implemented well. Effect cloner works fine for smaller effect files you know it's just the large file in deltabuild0.package that's causing the problem. What's weird is that the first time I installed the effect cloner and ran it, it ran fine and it could even read the file in deltabuild0.package.
The problem started occurring after I installed TSRW(latest version) from here https://www.thesimsresource.com/workshop/ And when I installed TSRW two additional programs SlimDX .net 2.0 and visual c++ 2010 sp1 were installed. I think it was one of these that made some kind of change in my computer, maybe the mscorlib.dll or sos.dll were changed idk.
Anyway I wanted to ask two questions now
1)Are you able to use effect cloner to open deltabild0.package effects after installing latest version of TSRW?
2)Is S3PE and effect cloner made using .net4.0 or .net 2.0?

Sorry i wasn't around to answer your question! >-<

I don't really have the latest TSRW version since it's really buggy and breaks my CAS creations, so maybe that's... it?

By the way, the deltabuild version of the SWB is merely an, I think, a data thingy? Because the delta one's not working for me, though the fullbuild0 is. So that might be worth a check!

The fullbuild0 works for me too but it doesn't have most of the effects only the base game effects I think.
I was able to open the Deltabuild0 the very first two times that I tried to open it. Then I installed TSRW and now I can open only the shorter files like the one in fullbuild0 or the ones carrying only one effect I even tried uninstalling TSRW and it's components but no dice

Is there any other tool out there that can open .effects files??

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...tion-in-asp.net. I found some stuff here that might be useful but I can't try it now as I'm going to be away from home for 3 days. Have to check when I'm home.

I think I got it to work. I copy pasted the wrappers from No effects modder made by Velocity Grass in the S3PE folder and the effect cloner tool helper folder. Try it out, it should work. Velocity Grass saves the day again. Love that guy
