Character Export Mystery

Recommended Posts

ok so

-modeled a character

-rigged it to the skeleton as per this tutorial: http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/tutorials/newteammax.php

-edited the heirarchy as per that tutorial

-installed POEtools, set up paths

-applied bf2 dx materials with proper paths to textures

-named each skinned mesh segment according to tutorial

-tried exporting, the "debug" files (.dat, etc) show up, while exporting

-debug files disappear when export is "finished," no skinnedmesh or con file or any of that appears in the folder.

My maxscript listener looks like this

first - change your 3pskeleton dummy name from ske::3p_setup to ske:root_skeleton

second - connect arm meshes to your geom0 lod0 and skin them with 1p skeleton
