Won't display shader nodes anymore

Gabe Newell 4 weeks ago • updated 4 weeks ago 3

I created this shader with Shader Forge but suddenly it stopped displaying upon a new opening of the file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J4pABi4hPRJZPNok-ZyEJJ7JsjtUqyBR/view?usp=drivesdk

All my other shaders open and display properly

Glad it worked out! Did you ever figure out what caused it?

I'm not sure I can explain it properly as I didn't completely understand what happened.
I realized that the gameobjects's materials using the shader had an incorrect path (something with "Hidden/..." instead of "Shader Forge/Flowmap"). I'm not sure why it changed to Hidden path nor why upon setting the path back to the proper path I finally was able to open it in Shader Forge. Why would a gameobject using the shader matter to the shader? not sure. I just don't know what happened ;)
