Hello,

Other than viewing the models in game, your only option is to extract, convert, then load into a modeller.

You need 4 things to view kotor models:

1) Kotor tool to extract the .mdl, .mdx and textures
2) extract0-4 to turn the binary .mdl and .mdx into an ascii .mdl file
3) gmax or 3d studio max (gmax is free)
4) nwmax to import the ascii .mdl into gmax or 3d studio max

kotor tool:

extract0-5:

thank you very much for your explanation and your links

I use 3ds max with nwmax plugin, I can see models, I can modify models, it works fine

--------------------------

but is there a small prog to just visualizing models quickly ?

no I think, if there were one, you would have say it to me

it would be very good if there were a model viewer in kotor tool like there is an image viewer

hello all,

Well, you can try:

You will still have to use kotor tool and extract0-5 to get the model into ascii format. I can only get blasters and swords to work with it. More complex models (i.e. characters, or models with animations) crash it.

There is no current way to view a binary kotor model.
