    Thanks. I looked there before but probably got confused by some other words like Oinkerwinkle.

    I tried to use the paladin Dagren on a Knight, the experience was not at all comfortable ... It requires a lot of bone editing, his legs do not match well, and even his face is unbalanced in most animations.
    Regarding the reverse process (mounted)... I don't know about other Reforged mounts, but the Knight (HU) has very specific bones and little synchrony in relation to the bones of the other models.

    @Retera i started using your Programm and learning from your videos right now I remove all parts of attachments like
    Example Footman
    Helmet
    Chest
    Weapon
    Shield
    Bracers for Hand and Shoes
    Belt

    and Save this attachments for faster modelling in folder like a library of all attachments

    so my question is can you figure out how I can switch on mount units the rider? That would be great if you can figure out a method and how I can extract blp textures on your model studio so I can recolor them ?

    You can get the textures from the game files. Use CASCView (or MPQ Editor for older versions) to open them.

    For reforged stuff you will need CASCView. Make sure all programs that might be reading the CASC files are closed (the game, editor, Retera's) before trying to open it. If that doesn't help, post the error you are getting.

    You can also right click and export a texture from the data browser in Retera Model Studio, which uses JCASC by DrSuperGood to load the game data in a way that is similar to CASCView. It's less powerful than CASCView but if it can be good for a quick shortcut to save time if you're already model browsing.

    @aldreen
    In Reteras M.S, on the "Script" tab, convert your .mdx to classic (HD -> SD), then using the program Milkshape 3D, import by choosing the option "WCIII MDX"... Export as "Wavefront .OBJ"...


    @Retera In Retera's, accessing the modeling tab ... using the "F" function to trigger the frame animations, there are problems with rotating the "nodes", after right-clicking on a given node to insert a rotation by specific numeric value, creates an error window.
    Not being inconvenient or rushed with future corrections. Do you have a forecast for a possible update patch to correct the rotations by specific values?
    Because to edit certain animations, it is important to use angle rotation in exact numerical values in each frame (as it exists in MdlVis). After all, manual rotation without precision with the values, brings us imperfections and lack of synchronism. Thank you for all your dedication!
    EDIT:As with the example with MdlVis of rotation in digit:

    Hey, this tool is godlike. Retera, would you include a plugin that will rip all external games such as World of Warcraft? Because the jm2 converter and the long-method of exporting porting the models take too much time. But if you could have an extra tool like batch convert m2, obj, wmo to mdx would be nice add-on.

    thanks Retera, salutes.

    @Draconian The "ammo" machine guns are came from the Reforged model named "Orc Cart" as shown in the picture below.
