ok, im posting this is the OJP forums also, but its more likely to get looked at here.

since my Assimalate program errors out every time i try to tell it to Build, i hand drag the *.car file onto the carcass.exe, and it gives me this error:


Error: Model has 54 surfaces, but only 1 can be reached by recursing from surface 0 ('stupidtriangle_off')
You need to re-hierharchy this model correctly
These are the surface(s) not reachable from surface 0...
saber
saber2
staff
blaster
launcher
golan
blaster2
*hips_cap_l_leg
*hips_cap_r_leg
*hips_l_knee

bla bla bla, you get the point. I have 3DS Max 6 SP1 and i have no clue how to re-hierharchy my model :(

could someone please help me with this?

It means you havent linked the hierarchy correctly.

Use the autolinker to link the basic stuff and manually link any non-standard meshes you might have.

get autolink script here (http://www3.sympatico.ca/psykopat/tools/autolink.zip)

Check out space monkey's tutorial to see how the hierarchy is done.
