Need some help,
first im new to blender and i  havn't 3ds max, so here is my problem:

I Exportet a few models from Warhammer Online
like this


first i have it exportet as an OBJ and convert it to a WMO... and it works perfectly, but a mortar is only a decorative so i beginn to edit the obj and tried to convert the obj as an M2... but it wont work, the converter crashes at Adding Materials.
So i know it must be a mistake of me, but i can't find the mistake and so i need help.

(oh and i tried a few other 3ds and obj to m2/mdx converter... nothing works)

You might want to send me the obj file. It's most likely wrong configuration of blender.

It's just missing the obj file =p, which is the only necessary file !

You might need visual studio 2012 redistributable

I've tried remaking the object as well and exporting it with the correct settings then converting it, still not success.

Your obj is probably incorrect in some way, I got that error when I first used the tool as well.  I believe it would happen if I exported the obj out from 3D Studio Max,  so now I export it out of Blender, I still make models in Max, but when I do the final things, I get the mesh into blender then export to the final obj from Blender.

My Blender 2.68 obj export settings:


which I got from Gamh's website.

Second is that my model all use one texture only and is all joined together into one piece of geometry(you folks call it geosets) before final export.  This error may also be caused if your mesh is made up of multiple geosets and or use multiple textures... I wouldn't know since I join everything together in the end.

Thank for the information, I've got a new error now.



The object is very basic, it's a cube, a 25x25x25 Cube, i'm not sure how large that is in-game as I'm just making this as a test, when i go into 3ds, i just make a cube, export it as an OBJ, import it into blender, export it using the setting provided by Anthony, would uploading my Max file help?

I'm curious about what you're putting into the command line.

why does it end with just a simple  ?   Do you plan to put your texture files at the front of the MPQ file rather than in a folder?  If so, don't put anything,  just end it off with the name you are going to have your m2 and skin files be called, as your image says TheGrassC  which would output files named TheGrassC.m2 and TheGrassC00.skin  .

I made a tutorial on it a long while ago but I never released it due to a few friends not being able to figure it out on their own without my direct assistance.  You can try to view it and see if you can pick up any pointers from it:



Best to watch it on youtube since you can make it bigger or fullscreen where as the youtube tag here for videos disables the fullscreen function.

Goodluck.

I'm glad you got your issue resolved and was able to make use of my video......unlike several of my mates :grumble..grumble...grum...:  XD......well you can still rotate the model manually in Noggit atleast. hehe.

Yeah I'm sorry the tool isn't very convenient at first use. It's still a heavy work in progress. I'm not really deving on it for now, since I have very important exam to pass <-<. However once it's done, I will probably release better versions !
