Post by Wolfy215 »

For example

I¡¦ll get it converted tto .3ds , buti tink the yellow is a material
How o I do this?
Better yet, does anybody have a model of a school bus?

After spending money for a model I'd opt for getting it to work...;)

When you import your .3ds model, are you selecting the latter option of D3D data type? That will place any texture(s) that are included with the model.
