Which version are you using? Version 2.2 and higher should now support .tga format. Earlier versions didn't though...

Current Version 2.5 Alpha 3 here:

PaintDotNet_2_1b_Full.exe (26mb) dl yesterday.

yeah, that's the latest of the "Stable" releases which doesn't support .tga format.

You'll need to download one of the "Pre-release Alpha/Beta" versions in order to get the .tga file format support...

Check the link above for a newer "non-stable" pre-release version. As horrid as that sounds... the pre-release versions should still be "stable" ;)

thanks Darth333 for updating the link, and thanks svosh too.

however...

after installation, whenever i run gmax it asks me to obtain my "free Registered User Identification Code by visting:
http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/register/ ".

without that Code, i can not run gmax, and whenever i click on that link i get a "Page Can Not Be Displayed" error.

help! what do i do?

now all of a sudden the link works for me too, must of been temporary

What version of NWMax do you use and what editor (gmax or 3dsmax and what version)

JonDeere
01-11-2006, 02:02 AM
I'm using 3ds max v7 and I downloaded the latest version of NWmax (version 8). Before that I tried version 7. And just out of curiosity I put it into gmax, and it didn't work there either.

oldflash
01-11-2006, 04:15 AM
Here are all nwmax plugins (http://nwmax.dladventures.com/download/) which are good for import/export kotor/tsl ascii models. When you install plugin you will be prompted to confirm gmax or 3dsmax location. If installer doesn't get right location of program means it will not work. But all this in only one condition: gmax or 3ds max to be installed in other place than c:\
However, this plugin (http://nwmax.dladventures.com/download/NWmax-gmax-v0_7setup.exe) should work just fine for gmax v1.2

Ill Really appreciate if you could add KISS (which in fact as far as i know is the only tool that can make mods compatible, unless fred update KT, ive been away for a long time :/ ) in the general mod editing section.

Kiss can be found here: www.gameapps.com

Also, it was created by The0 (so you can add it in the "tools by author section" :) )and used in the Customization packs I, II, III and IV, that can be found here: http://www.spellholdstudios.net/mods/custpacks or here: http://corellon.clandlan.net/index.php?page=corellon/kotor/pp

Thanks in advance!! :D

You should have a look to second post (at bottom)

Mod Compatibility Tools
Kotor Mod Manager (KMM)
DLG/UTI/UTC Language Converter
TSLPatcher
It's not easy to make compatible 2 mods which use same files. I'm talking here about textures, models, items difinition (.uti), dialogs, scripts... However, I think TSLPatcher is perfect.

The thing with kiss is that it makes them compatible automatically, so yes, it IS easy to make them compatible. Read the KISS info :)

In any case, it doesnt mean that if you dont use it, someone else might want to use it, so ill still appreciate if someone added it to the tool list :)

Cya arond!! :)

First of all, I love the fact that all the tools are assembled in a nice clean post, thanks D-Trips :p, but I was reading through them, and I didn't see any links to Hex Editors, maybe using a hex editor is out-dated nowadays, but I like using them, I'll search for some and put some links up for someone to check out and see if they are worthy of being on the list :)

This one (http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm) is pretty good.

In general you can find good ones with a simple Google search, I suppose that's why there isn't a hex editor listed :xp:

Added. Never hurts to add free tools, thanks man! :D ~ ChAiNz.2da
