This is great news. Have you considered also sharing the format specs with the guy who does the Noesis model viewer/converter so that he might add support?I have deciphered the format of BOD-file completely. Also I've made the "alpha"- version of new script of 3DSMAX9 with the special utility to export models into BOD format. I think this script will be work in other version 3DSMAX too. For example, simple object (box) was exported from 3DSMAX9 into BOD:
It works in my Windows8.1.
But now I also think about Blender plugins if it possible.
No, this format is the property of RAS or Codemasters and I will not disclose it specifically. I only want to give some help to the BOD fans. There is one problem. MAXScript in 3DSMAX9 and early versions can't write(read) the double numbers into(from) binary "*.BOD"-files. However, Avguard Extensions plugin with avg_dlx90.dlx gives this possibility.Have you considered also sharing the format specs with the guy who does the Noesis model viewer/converter so that he might add support?
Maybe you did not enter a suffix name ".BOD"remember these plugins: bldexp.dle, Camera.dle, MBWImporter.dli ?
I was trying to use first one to export simple model I committed and I or it failed.
No matter what I do when I try to save as .bod it always says "Don't know how to export this file" (or something like that)
1) First, I was using these libs: MSVCRTD.DLL, PYTHON15.DLL, BBLibc.dll, BUIxc.dll, Raster.dll (from god knows where... - I found them somewhere on drive included with installation on 3dsmax-2.5 ) They all rely on MSVCRTD.DLL and looks like they are "designed" for that role, so to speak but anyway export doesn't work.
2) Cuthberth said they can be taken from $BOD/Bin directory (these are linked with MSVCRT.DLL /normal, non debug version, interestingly enough with one included in Blade they don't work so it's better to leave them link to system one/ and require BUIxc.dll, blibc.dll as well), so I did and they work as above, namely export doesn't.
so question is - is it problem of libraries or something else I miss with this plugin
maybe I didn't... hehMaybe you did not enter a suffix name ".BOD"
