It's recommended to use 3D MAX 2012 to avoid unsolveable errors.

Script needs OpenIV version 0.9.3(or newer) for openFormats<>game_resource conversion(ODR->WDR, OBN->WBN, etc... ).

I'm not sure what happened with last update, but now i'm scared to do any more. Now it's not loading textures when importing ODD. If i save just imported model in MAX and reopen from it, textures are showing up then. And ODD export is giving me some "call needs function or class 1.0 error".

So i guess i'll get this version again and be done. Hopefully there is not gonna be some old version compatibility issues now.

My error message was due to damaged bones. Somehow all of them got different size and after i replaced them with those from previous saves, i could export my work with no more errors. Errors came just after i agreed to update, what coincidence. So sorry for honking horn for nothing.

when I import a model into 3DS max GIMS IV it always gives me an error like this:

"-----.odr is encrypted or wrong format" Do you know how to fix? Its not encrypted and I did the export files into Openfromats

After long time i needed again CLONE wpl object and it suddenly never worked. I already done it so many times few years ago and now i see, CLONED object will copy it self out of hierarchy. It no more groups automatically into existing ones, so they have to be "relinked". It looks like bug to me, unless it has some higher purpose.

It took me half day testing, then i finally went to old WPL objects i already made and tried to make more, ofcourse that didn't work and then i've noticed that displacement.

I'm not complaining, I'm greatfull to have this tool anyway and i,m mentioning this just in case it needs to be fixed, or others have same issue

I just upgraded, change vertex tiny bit on ped and can't import through open formats no more. Getting this

Not supported format version, actual: "13" but expected "12".

I already made those changes 6 times with no problems before.

OpenIV update fixed import of above complaint, but from now on peds hair transparency is somehow wrong.

Transparent ends are blocky and black if color is bright. First i was just hoping some polygons are flipped, but thats not it. Also, since OpenIV is updated, new gims exports are working, but all old ones are making above error, so importing previous gims exports where hair is still ok, are no more possible. I tried reexporting some older MAX saves, they all come out with hair like this

Again, i very much appreciate u giving us this tool. Hopefully this is fixable.

Can You make a tool witch automatically turns .Obj files in to GTA IV supported open formats by taking a model and its texture?

Or it ask for a .Obj instead of .ODR file?

^^ Latest open4 update fixed that, but some old saves would start showing that error after
