This is probably the wrong forum - maybe it should be in help wanted- anyway- everyone seems helpful enough here so pls forgive.. What I want is simple: 1.I simply need a free soldier model holding a gun in md2 format. I have milkshape but it's too fiddly for me trying to get each vertex assigned to a bone for the crap models I mess up *every* time ! 2. If the model is very complex then like mip mapping I'll need some smaller versions for when the soldier is quite a distance off. 3. I'll need it to have key frame sequences for standing, kneeling, lying down and running, walking, crawling.This must have been done to death... 4. I want to color the soldier a vague misty blue hew or vague misty red hew depending on what army he is in. Simply opengl set color material command would work wouldn't it ? I've trawled the web and found a zillion matches, they are all in 3DS format or some other format which I don't know. I have a feeling what I'm askign is so simple that people don't even bother giving it away for free - (in the same way people don't give free opengl squares away for free) ! cheers Ade

For some reason my milkshape doesn't like the MD2 file format.

What do you mean? Does it export wrong or what?

Well, when i make 3 random cubes and save it as MD2, it pops up a message saying that no animation is exoprted, because there are no bones. The MD2 has some weird bone and tag stuff, which i had in a book somewere, but i'm too lazy to find it right now.

MD2, the original Q2 form, has no bones. Animation is entirely per-pixel keyframing. This is probably the source of the problem.

I looked in the book and it was about MD3 instead, which had those tag_head, tag_body etc. My mistake
