NILE - Cache Folder - NPZ and NPJ files invisible.

This is suddenly happening in Windows 8.1 -

I can only see the Cache folder and the NPZ/NPJ projects in the editor open/save dialog.

When I look with explorer they are hidden from view.

All the methods I've tried so far will not reveal them in explorer.

Strangely (and so far inexplicably) - I can see the file backups on my external drives but they disappear when I drop them into the JOCAG folder.

So - NILE will find them OK and load them OK and the game will play them OK.


IMO:
After a seemingly consistent assault by MS on the home user and developer, this new type of hoodoo voodoo in the program folders is somewhat worrying...

Could it be the old VirtualStore shunt?

I can't emphasize this enough: Run ALL NovaLogic executables as admin. Installers, patchers, games, and especially, the mission editors.

Noticed that Windows 10 Registry has a Wow6432Node shunt in a Wow6432Node.

IE
...\Wow6432Node\Wow6432Node\...

(I guess I'd better not put the actual path here)

It might be how they're managing the experimental builds so I didn't touch it.
