I recently got into HM3 after a long time off. I’ve been practicing shading, highlighting and masking in general. I’ve been having a problem pop up from time to time, where I load a saved character and all items that were masked become unmasked. This happens when loading from local storage (“Your Saves”) as well as loading the same character from a text file. In the worst cases, the base items (the ones that “received” the masked object) disappear entirely and only the formerly masked object is visible; ie. the shading or patterns.
I’m using the HM3 Premium version. I’ve experienced the problem in Firefox and IE, and in two different computers (Win 7 and Win 8.1). My flash software is up to date.
Any ideas about the problem and possible solutions? It’s really bad to fix when you have many masked objects.
