That sounds very annoying. I have an old version of the head that still pops up in some of my older outfits (apparently "find and replace" didn't get everything), and it always appears with an absolutely ghastly "sad" expression.

The old animation HUD was glitchy as hell; the newish one is fair bit better, and it at least shows what animation is playing. I find that clicking "Stop" on the HUD usually not only ends the facial animation, but whatever else is playing too, but that doesn't work for you? Is it possible you're not using the latest version of the HUD?

I got the genus head about 3 weeks ago? So I'm hoping it's the latest version! It lulls me into a false sense of security - acting like it's fixed then when I least expect it... BAM, the hideous smile returns.

When the hate comes Genus wearers be like....

Well said on the pros and cons. I can only add one negative, which is that, imho, Genus has yet to prove they are capable of addressing known issues with robust, well-tested updates. Soon enough it wi

Huh. That certainly should be the most recent version, which dates to mid-March, I think.

Does it sort of randomly start playing? Or is it there when you put on a new outfit? (The latter was my case.)

Even if the DMCA is genuine, it doesn't necessarily mean that their business is done with. It might be something as simple as a script,  in which case they would need to do is replace those, and then they could carry on with business as usual. But even doing that might take time. 

OFF TOPIC:   I'm sorry to go off topic for a bit but if it's a script or something else...perhaps a portion could be allocated to the person who may claim a right to an original part.  It is very easy to allocate a portion of money to someone else besides the main seller through a script which allows a certain portion of money per each sale of anything in SL to go to another person whether it's on Marketplace or inworld and even Gachas inworld on the machine can automatically send a portion of money to another person. 

This is entirely off topic...sorry...just an FYI kind of post.

I hope all is settled soon as it appears some need support.   I don't own Genus heads currently but did have Genus Classic on my radar as one I might like to buy.

Randomly happens. My face ends up stuck in the smiling then for hours!

That's just weird, then. I can't even guess what the problem is.

What I'd do, I think, is take a redelivery of the head, set up a copy of the new head, HUDs, and so forth in a separate folder, and then use the "Find and Replace" feature in Firestorm to replace existing copies of the head and HUDs with the new one. It sounds to me as though either the HUD or the head on the copy you're using now is "broken."

Alternately, take it up with the Genus group, if you're a member? They're a pretty helpful bunch of people, and they may have an easier fix.

Redeliveries aren't working at the moment... looks like I'll be stuck with a wide-eyed forced closed mouth expression. Thanks for trying to help!

Oh, damn. Of course, they wouldn't be.

What about unpacking your original copy from its box, and starting from scratch? I'm pretty sure that the problem you're experiencing must have started at some point after you set it up, or everyone else would be experiencing it as well.

Randomly happens...anywhere...everywhere?  However, *if* you are in one particular region ONLY though...go to a sandbox...Builder's Brewery or another sandbox that is NOT busy so you can see if it's the region you are in.  There may be something you can do which is a character test but that is a little complicated at this time to explain.  To simplify things rather than a character test at this time, is to put on another avatar and then re-build you avatar with a fresh head as Scylla has recommended.  

I've noticed and experienced that SL and the internet in general is a little "wonky" right now as it has so many more people with "safer at home" situations.  I'd be patient with it at this time and wait a bit to see if it settles down or try different low lag regions such as sandboxes that aren't too busy to see if it settles down or not.  The reason I say a sandbox is because you will need to go to a place that allows scripts to be run and sandboxes allow scripts to be run.   Many sims don't allow scripts to be run.

I just found out myself only a few minutes ago they were back up..

This is the best news.. I've been dying to get the strong 2 head since it came out.. I paused at first and then when I went to go get it had found out the store was temporarily closed, which was the first day it closed..

So I missed it by a day.. Now it's going to be waiting until traffic cools down..Because wow is it packed there now..hehehehe

But that's a really good thing..

it's a good day 😃

I've waited this long, I'll be fine waiting some more..

So many people have been waiting that didn't even have heads yet and wanting to get in there..

I'm just so glad to see them back up and running :)

They had just said something about the redeliver in the group..Something about updates not being out yet and to use the re-delivery for only tech issues for now..

Something like that..

They actually only fixed re deliveries a hour or so ago, so it might not still be working for everyone

I don't know if i got lucky or if the limit on the sim is set to a pretty high number..

There were 66 when I decided just to see what would happen using my landmark and got in on the first try..got my head I wanted and plus grabbed a couple of demos from the 002 series..

it took about 5 minutes altogether..

A lot of that probably had to do with me knowing right where everything is that i wanted and I wasn't trying stuff on there..

I'm sure if I was there for the first time or just trying on demos, it would probably be a bit rougher..

I like to hit the ground running if I can hehehehehe
