    Hi guys
    I recently found some time and started making model for my map. It's mostly geomerge, and I don't plan to upload it on Hive even if it's finished, but I spent a lot of time on it, and when I finally got to attaching verticles to bones in MDLvis, I got a message: 'model is damaged, report to author'. I still can do my job, but it's really irritating, 'cause the message appears every time I do something. Can you tell me how to fix it? Here's the model: View attachment Warrior.mdx
    I would be grateful for help :-D.

    I had a lot of errors like that. It was mostly because some vertices were not attached to bone. This error ocurs when you switch to bones tab, right? You could get the matrix eater to asign the vertices to bones and then try to open it again in mdlvis.

    No need to switch to matrix eater. Closing and reopening mdlvis does the trick most of the time.

    Really? Something is wrong then with my version. It always shows me that error.
    Sometimes it has errors when I wield two vertices into one and I need to close the program. Can someone link me to latest version, please?

    Well occasionally does happen if you do something stupid in the bones tab or in the vertices tab (welding two vertices from two different geosets usally does that).

    Just do not save the "bugged" version and open an old one.

    Because of that, I make multiple copies while working on a model. After a particular mesh or animation stage I create a copy and work on that. This way MDlvis can't destroy your dreams.
