It has taken many months, years maybe, but here it is. A working importer for alo/ala files for 3D Studio Max 6, 8 and 9. Capable of importing models and animations from Empire at War, Forces of Corruption and even Universe at War.

Get it from my Mod-Tools site (http://modtools.petro-gamers.com/tools/AloImporter).

Be sure to read the instructions carefully on how to set it up and use it.

you know, when i opened this thread i'm like "oh he updated the ALO viewer again, eh? cool"...then it hit me that you wrote Importer....and think i died with happiness. XD

oh, and you totally made my month with this, lol

Edit: hmm, hate to add this to the first post, but it seems that it only works for some of the models, mostly the very basic ones. I can't even get anything more than a mesh for the Stormtrooper, and others like the Executor get nothing.

And apparently this also rapidly kills 3ds Max 8, regardless of how high it's patched...i've had to reinstall twice already :(

I've heard about this from one or two others, and for many others (including all the testers) it works flawlessly. I wish I could say I knew what caused this. Maybe you set the intial heap size is set too high. You can reset it in 3dsmax.ini if it crashes again. Other than that I can't figure out what could make 3dsmax crash on startup.

I don't suppose that there is any chance such a wonderful tool exists for GMAX is there?

I love your site! Bookmarked for FoC modding reference.:3heart:

Nope, sorry. Not by my making anyway.
