i down loaded milkshake and all the import and export files and when i try to use milkshake it wont run ive down loaded it 3 times.im useing vista and runinng it on an alienware machine.what i need is a modding program that will run on my set up.id like to get into modding and willing to learn to program my own ships and not asking someone to do them for me so all help will be welcomed.
Try right-clicking on the Milkshape3D .exe and selecting "properties", then setting it to run in a compatibility mode. Maybe that'll get it to work. Are you using 32- or 64-bit Vista? I'm guessing 64-bit with the machine you're running.
What version of Milkshape are you running? I think version MS3D 1.8.1b and above support Vista. Might also inquire over at their forum. http://www.chumba.ch/chumbalum-soft/forum/index.php
