    Very nice program. I've been trying to learn how to model edit with so many programs for several months now. I open this and bam, 10 minutes later I'm completely changing the look of a crypt fiend. Thank you so much for making this.

    And for everyone who says "its just a gray box, how do I import a model?", you also need warcraft 3 viewer in order to extract the .mdx file from blizzard models. Modeling takes multiple programs, and truly isn't that difficult if you follow the tutorials here on the hive. Go here for a list of modeling tutorials.

    I successfully downloaded it, but when I want to open it I get an error saying that my system doesn't support linear mip-map filters. I have no clue how to fix that. Can anyone help me?
