    NOTE: Make sure you have the latest TFT patch, this does not work with ROC and make sure you have the latest Direct X to avoid errors.

    "This application has failed to start because d3d9.dll was not found. Re-installing may fix this problem." This is what happens when I try to run the program. Any suggestions on what's wrong? I've re-downloaded this 4 times now in hopes something changed, yet nothing has.

    PLEASE P.M. me or post back to tell me what's wrong or if you can give me one that you have that works.

    I keep getting an error that says "Unable to retrieve Direct3D capibilities!" Please Help!

    Never mind, a simple restart of my computer after installing the latest DirectX fixed the problem. But now, this may seem like a dumb question but where do you get the models?

    Nevermind i figured it out. Now how do you edit things now?

    Hey, when does a newer version come out when you can edit and add verticies or other things. I cant make models by scratch atm. and I have been having trouble with imported geosets and which node to attach it to. I still give it a 10/10 though.

    Can anyone help? When I open it, it's just a gray box.. anyone know why?

    {EDIT}
    Oh and mengsta, you change the color by editing the skins, which you have to do in a seperate program.
