There is also an x-file exporter for 3DSMax4 included in the sdk extras directory. Should allow you to save directly .x

Did you try running it from a command prompt or just Start -> Run?

What you need is a program called EZconv or EZconvert, I can''t remember. Basicly it is an addon to the conv3ds.exe. It is a window where you type in the name of the file you want to convert as well as if it has animations or not. It works!!! You can find it on the net.

If you go to Microsofts site by the SDK downloads there is extras for Directx 8.1. Get them there is an export plugin for Max 4.x that will save x files.

did you read the read me file in the same directory as the conv3ds, there are several switches you can use.

type in the dos screen command line conv3ds -m filename.3ds.It will be easier to have the file to be converted and the conv3ds in the same directory. There is no reason why it should not work.

Mission 1 is complete we tought our children how to hate. Mission 2, the off switch does not work !!!
