need help exporting a viewmodel with the bones

im trying to make a viewmodel so far i have gotten everything to work. i click the cube and shift+click the bones and export them and it works but when i compile it in crowbar it only finds the bone weight painted to the cube “master” and the bones parented to that bone

the cube has a bone “MASTER”. the bone is attached to the r_hand bone. when i compile. only the bones from the r_hand and back get compiled “$definebone” and not the fingers?

it exports to smd with the bones. but when i compile it in crowbar it only defines the one bone in the cube mesh it self. $definebone “MASTER” “” -3.662083 -19.085535 -0.546032 -79.749939 -89.999983 -90.000038 -0.000000 0.000000 0.000000 0.000000 -0.000000 0.000000

does any one know how to make it work or define all the bones. i missed a step or left something out i have spent hours and hours working on this and nothing i do helps. some one please help

FIXED after a long battle with blender and crowbar i found the fix… so the smd was exported correctly with the cube and the bones. but i needed to add $bonemerge to the qc
