View Full Version : Model Viewer Problems

08-31-2004, 05:26 AM
I downloaded the Skinning & Modelling Kit from Ravensoft and I cannot get the Model Viewer to work. I keep getting the message "Filesystem call made without initialization" when I try to open a GLM file.

Help! :(

Check the path to the file. Seems like the model viewer does not allow longer pathnames than 64 chars.

When veiwing a player model in modview the folders
must be set up so they start at the base folder.

So if you were trying to open the kyle model, the
pathway must read as:


I've also written up a tutorial for using modview
on my site that you can check out if you have
any further questions.

The pathname should be okay. I put the "players" folder directly on the C drive. So the path is C\players\model\model.glm

I did run into the pathname problem before this one. That's why I moved it directly onto the C drive. When the pathname was long, it gave me a different error. Something about q_max exceeded or something like that...

I'll give it another try tonight...
