Ya I did not have luck finding that program a in January when I started to model. What step in the process are you on in your modeling work?

Thanks Crashed... I will go have alook right now.

As for my progress in the modelling game Junkyboy... not far. I have done some tutorials in gmax - and also some tweaking to models in G4 but without the Middleman prgram I cant import at all! Hopefully i willbe able to give you a better update soon!! I have found a plan and converted into the 3 views and set up the background in gmax. I now need to start constructing. Starting with a Beagle Pup.

Thanks for all you help guys - including arb6591 who dhk79 (Doug) put me on to and we have emailed... waiting on a reply there.

You guys are all always willing to help. Kind of gives me faith in humanity again!!

Jon

Ha! Typical!! I didn't search for it - i just saw the plans and thought it looked straight forward for a forst attempt... and there lies the issue... You are unlikely to get quality from me just yet. It will come though!!

Regards

Jon

Unknown File Format - DE .x test file

Hi Andrzej

I have the files and they are all in the correct folders etc, Thanks very much. However when I tried to create the test file and open it in Deep Exploration - DE says that it is an unknown file format, and therefore nothing shows...

What have I done wrong?? I have been over the instructions a few times.

I sent you an email before coming on to the forums.

I have tried the file association method too which triggered an update to the Cortex.exe plugin manager but needless to say that won't run either!

Cheers

Jon

I know this topic is VERY old, but since I myself spent way too much time searching for a solution and found none around, I might as well share this here too;

I solved the "ERROR!! Opening MakeMdl (path/file not found)" thing by adding, as mentioned by some tutorials, the MDLCommander.exe to the Gmax/plugins folder, thus renamed to "makem.exe". Everything worked just fine after that
