Hi, so I’ve been experimenting with making models in Maya and exporting them using a tool called Mesa.
I successfully did this once, with a Chinese lantern model I’d made.
Having tried it two more times, when I try to load the models into hlmv I get “error loading model”.
I don’t think I have ‘bad topology’, but can someone explain to me how I could tell?
A difference I’ve noticed between these two models, and the model that worked:
upon compiling the qc, a 3DS Max Physique file is not generated for the ones that haven’t worked.
Update: I fixed it.
Basically, I’m using Mesa, a tool to export smd’s in Maya.
You need to make sure that whatever .tga materials you apply to that model are in your mesa project folder in a subfolder called ‘materialsrc’.
I know it’s weird that hlmv wouldn’t load a model because of this but, it works.
