If a definition file’s name is too long, the Hapax will give an error that the definition file isn’t found. Once you edit the name to a shorter length, it works. I’m assuming this should give an error that the title is too long? At least saying the definition file doesn’t exist would be incorrect in this case.
Syntax error line 4, which is:
Based on the comment in line 3, “Supports all alphanumeric ASCII, and ’ ', ‘_’, ‘-’, ‘+’ - can also be NULL”, this syntax error doesn’t make much sense. The title also does not contain special characters and should allow spaces.
Replacing the title with NULL allowed the definition file to load successfully.
Had the same type of issue with my Machinedrum IDs. Line 10 had no name at the end of the drum lane . Added NULL. now Null shows up as the name of that drum, but it loads. leaving it blank as I did previously causes it to fail to load.
