Desperately need Gmax file export help...

Recommended Posts

I cannot get Gmax to export in Flightsim.bgl format for FS2004. I'm following a couple tutorials and have made my building and applied the textures. When I try to export it, all I get for "save file type" options are "Plasma(*.P3D) and "All Files".According to the tutorial I'm supposed to specify "Flightsim.bgl"I copied MakeMdl from my Fs2002 CD and placed it in my Gmax plugins folder as per directions. I have my Gmax folder inside the main FS2004 folder.Would some kind person please help me out a bit here. I'm at an impasse. Maybe I'm missing a file or my config paths for Gmax are wrong.Thanks, Adam

So you have installed both the MakeMDL.exe and FsModelExp.dle in the plugins folder of GMax? That sounds correct.Have you tried to copy the entire gamepack from Fs2002 to GMax? It does also include some config files I think, maybe that is the difference.

Thanks guys, I figured it out. I had 2 instances of Gmax. Somehow I was running one and then using the other to try to export *:-* . I found the files I needed in the 'other' Gmax scenery folder. All is well now.Thanks again, Adam
