    Some models are not openable, it shows "Unable to load textures\something.blp, file doesn't exist". Shall I find it that I can't open models where the textures need overwriting?

    Hmm... Just wondering how to replace the MDX texture. For example, for the Jaina mdx model I imported my edited blp and removed the original one. But..didn't work. Any suggestions or even other programs to use?

    Well, i solved problem with replacing textures this way:
    Each texture in warcraft 3 has it's path within mpq archives, which we can find out in <texture manager> of this model editor. So, we just paint our own texture, then import it into Warcraft 3 World Editor, then at <import manager> we should change the path of our texture to a path of the texture we want to substitute...
    (sry for my english)

    Lol Dark, your English ain't got a problem ;)
    I've solved the problem already but thanks anyway. And btw, this website and the programs it has are quite useful (if you havn't already checked it out.)
    http://www.oinkerwinkle.com/tools/index.html

    Thanks again, but I want to ask: do you know a program that is simple but effective in adding, merging, and creating vertexes, creating faces, etc., whilst keeping the addition with the bone?
