    Attach the Geoset-manage thing not to 'Head-ref' but 'bone-head' otherwise the head invisible.

    Try to attach the geoset to a Bone-symboled Node that contain the ref, so for Militia it's Bone_Head.

    "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.

    PM me please.

    I'm sure everyone would, but unfortunately, not everyone can spare $3,995 for Warcraft modelling. Unless you work at Blizzard, of course.

    Torrenting paid and copyrighted software is illegal if the company that created said software exists within bounds of it being illegal. Not to mention that fact that it's copyrighted software. AutoCAD, 3DSMAX, they're all copyrighted.
