Heya okay ive been looking round the internet for about 2 days trying to find a solution to this thing, and i couldnt find annnything.:confused: Im modeling in milkshape (kinda new to it still) and i know how to export the MD3 file and such, but when i import the model into my map, all the textures are white :( My texture images are .BMP and their in the right folder i think. Its only a model of a piller. Orginally i had an error saying "Error downloading texture!" everytime i tried importing the textures into milkshape, but that seemed to fix itself when i renamed the texture to "d".. O.o helpy me pweeze

My experience with md3's is limited, and with 3dsmax 7. But here's something to try.

Set up a base/models/(whatever)/ directory. Put your textures in the (whatever) folder, where (whatever) is the name of the folder you're using. Apply the textures inside milkshape (so when you render they show up).

But basically, the path for the textures needs to be the same in the pk3 as in the modeling program. That's how I understand it.

And get GMAX, at least. Milkshape is icky.

Apply your textures to the MD3 properly. Don't just assume because it looks right in MD3View that it is right. Take the extra 2 minutes and finish it up.

Also try JPG's. I tried BMP once and nothing showed up but the model.

JPG's are a much better route. In the very least, they decrese your finished file size innumerably.
