Added support for new MD34 model format
Bones now animate correctly

0.14 - April 10th 2010
Aligned all submeshes to their appropriate bones
Skinned vertex positioning now based on all weighted bones (thanks to MD5 documentation)

Initial version of M3 import script

  • Model mesh still does not bind to the bones properly for some models (eg. Immortal.m3).
  • 3ds Max can be slow importing some of the larger models if you choose to import animation sequences. This is due to the inherently sluggish nature of maxscript, import animations at your own peril.
  • Some animations are still not animating correctly.
  • Vertex normals at the moment are SLOW to import due to 3ds max being crappy about how to manually set them. For large models it will slow down the import considerably.
