Mouse click sound file name length
Jul 15, 2015
Not sure if this is correct forum.
I have developed a course in SL2 with screen recordings of a new software package we are bringing onto our business. I have mixed in 'Try Mode' and 'View Mode' recordings and when publishing it is failing due to the output path being over 256 characters. I am saving to a network drive, with our team folder buried under a few layers of folders (which I have no control over). I have tried to reduce the folder name characters, but it is still failing.
When I investigated what is causing the issue specifically I found that when a 'View Mode' screen recording is used, a mouse click sound file is generated in the story_content folder which has a reduculous amount of characters (e.g. MouseClickSound_5079b791-7c18-43ba-8e0e-832282deb8f9_22050_56.mp3). To work around this I am saving to my desktop, but am unable to copy the generated course folder to our team folder (able to copy the generated .zip SCORM package, so all is not lost!)
I am wondering if this is an issue for anyone else, and if this could be picked up by the development team to look into. I am not sure the reasons around the length of this file name, but if it could be reduced, it would sort out this problem.
