I've been trying to build an animated mesh (a simple humanoid figure) in blender and export to .x format for use in a DX9 game. So far, no matter what I do, what tutorial I follow, and what exporter I use, the DX9 mesh viewer either refuses to open the x file, or crashes after loading it. Is there a real, definitive source of information on getting this to work with Blender 2.41 and DX9? If not, and I need to use another modeller, can someone recommend one (low cost, preferably) that I could use? I am a programmer, not a modeller.

I can't advice you about Blender but to propaply view your x file mesh use Right Hemisphere Deep exploration.
I'm using 3DMax 8 with Panda Direct Exporter and it's good SO far.

I have had trouble with the blender .x exporters before, which is why I don't use them anymore. I do know for sure that skeletal animations from milkshape export to .x just fine, in fact there are two exporters that can do the job. Milkshape is pretty cheap too.

Make sure you don't have any degenerate faces in the scene. Like, a face with only 2 verts or something. That will cause the xfile exporter to create inconsistent files. The x viewer handily ignores any chunks that it feels don't make sense.
