XGen - hair will not follow guides anymore
okay so ever since I've began using XGen there's this same problem and I can't find out why.
Only thing I can tell, is that it seemingly happens after I apply a region map. The hair just suddenly refuse to properly follow the guides.
The problem has persisted through different Maya versions (since Maya 2018), Files and projects.
I have attached 2 pictures displaying the problem. Once with and once without the region map applied.
In this specific project I've been closely following a tutorial but still it does not work for me, while theres no trace of the issue within the tutorial.
Windows 10, Maya 2020.2
any help would be dearly appreciated.
