Hello Frter. Try turning off

Hello Frter.
Try turning off the Internet and using offline activation when the plugin asks.
Also, make sure you can access the website
If it doesn't help, write me again.

How to make the rope stiffer

Hi, Dvieneira. I'll give you a clue how to do what you want :)
1) Open the rope group.
2) Select one of UConstraints (joints between bones), then click "select similar" in the context menu to select them all.
3) Open MassFx tools, open the 3rd tab there and set "Damping" to 500 or 1000.
I attached the screenshot.

Delphinium, just increase

Delphinium, just increase solver iters and substeps in your physix settings. Rope creator works fine. The same things happen with clothes. If you have low quality set, you can experience different glitches. Also you can play with Rope mass.

Problem solved, thanks! But there are still some issues.

Hi now it works! I really like your tool. thanks for helping!

But it will appear a "splitting" result if the number of bones is 8 or more. I don't know if it's a bug of the tool or it only happens on PhysX mode.
And "Rope thickness" doesn't works either. The thickness remains the same after I changed it under physX mode.
