GUI crashes when attempting to load TRIANGLE node files (.node and .ele files)

I have made some grids on another program and have converted them to .node and .ele files as the manual suggests. When I try to import the .node and .ele files , the GUI crashes. I have attached the .node file and have the .ele file but I think I am only allowed to attach one file.

Can someone help with this issue?

iRIC does not ensure the safety of the attached file.

    Please note the following when creating “.node and .ele files”:

    ・iRIC parameter
    ・Node code
    ・The position of the space (especially unnecessary after the enter mark)
    ・Rotational direction of element constituent nodes (counterclockwise)

    Even if you attach a file, we will not download it here.
    Try it yourself.

    Thanks for the help! I found that the error was due to the number of elements in line 1 of the elements list not being equal to the number of elements in the file. After fixing the issue, the files upload the grid correctly.

    Video2X stable release fro Windows 4.8.1 appears to crash when attempting to input a large source file, either by drag ‘n’ drop, or using the Select File button.
    All I can say at this point is, I can import a 2,144,689,376 byte file (1.99GiB), but not a 2,182,650,184 byte file (2.03GiB).

    Educated guess: somewhere in the file reading code, there’s a ~2GB limit and an unhandled exception.

    Edit: Had a brainwave. Under above circumstances, a split-second before the whole program crashes, line “Unhandled Python Exception” is printed to the CLI window.
