Milkshape 3d import problem
« on: June 09, 2013, 01:29:16 AM »
I registered mlikshape 3d today, and I've been having problems importing Half-Life models into the program. I select import mdl but no model shows up.

Import MDL? That maybe works in the HLMV. :)
To Import the models you Need to decompile it first.
There are two tools in MS3D:
Tools -> Half-Life -> Decompile Normal HL MDL File...
Tools -> Kratisto's Half-Life MDL Decompiler v1.2 (This is the better one!)

After you have decompiled the Model, you can open the reference SMD file.
File -> Import -> Half-Life SMD...
If you don't like it, mod it! (DaniJ)

Oh so you can't import the actual models into the program? Thanks for the help!!! You should also make a website of all the Half-Life models you have archived.  :)

1. No, you can't, because the MDL file are many different Animation and Reference SMD's you can Import and edit with MS3D.
2. Don't have enough time and space for that! :cop:
