    Version 1.01 is uploaded!

    I removed the positional light test so redownload and try again. Let me know if it still gives an error. I also added an MS3D (Milkshape) importer.

    This is a great tool, and the help file included is very detailed.

    I would reccomend uploading the tool to the tools section because most users don't visit this forum.

    It's gray simply because it's not implemented yet. Making a geoset-model editor is not an easy task so it will require some more work/time.

    All it needs now is an animation maker ^,^. Great program, but an extremely confusing one. Is there a tutorial somewhere? Or are you still working on completing the program?

    Considering any edits I make with this break the model, and I find myself using Image Viewer more, I have to disagree. until the 'not yet working' tools are implemented and the model doesn't break, I'm happy with my stone-age tools.
