Need help with Max's macros

Once again I post for help, and hopefully it will be the last time, using MaxOfS2D’s macros, made to be able to compile modified animations using crowbar (found here:, I tried to compile the base male and add it to my QC under another name, leaf to be exact, so I did

$includemodel "leaf.mdl"

, when I tried it in game it didn’t work, and even when I added a copy of the file to each possible folder and added multiple “includemodels”, it still didn’t work, is there something I am doing wrong or is there a problem with the file? I hope to hell that my problem is just not writing the qc correctly, I will post everything if requested.
