Hey y'all,

I've been having problems using the 3DS Max Importer/Exporter plugin. I put the one from the SDK in (yes i put it in the right place), and when i run 3DS it says that it failed to initialise the plugin. 3DS still runs, just without that plugin. I think it may be due to the plugin not being compatible with Max5? Help please.

Thanks, ATL/DMobley

The ArmadaII exporter is for Max4, and works, so the Max4 nif exporter should work too. Can you send it me/tell me the d/l URL plz?

Thanks, ATL/DMobley

A NIF that comes out of Max 4.0 is in NIF4 format, and thus will need to be converted with a program called Nif2Nif..which runs on JRE (Java Runtime Environment)..and is a royal pain in the arse..Your best bet is to get your hands on a copy of 3D Max R3 and use the STBCExporter that comes with the SDK. That's the -only- way I could get it to work.

@ Atlantis, email the file to feddel@hotmail.com Include a title about converting, otherwise I might just delete it without reading (get hundreds of email a day)and include a short message about converting it from which version of 3d Studio Max so I dont store it to hard drive and forget about it. If I am at the computer when it comes you can get it back in about 15 minutes. But otherwise when I return from work.

This goes for anyone needing to convert from 3d studio max to nif.
