Gmax and the activation key.

#1
Hello,

I like to start designing airplanes and scenery for FS9.
There is a copy of G-max on de CD but this program apparently needs an activation key.
I tried almost everything but the returned key is not working and after 3 day’s of useless attempts so solve this, hope is fading away.
Question is now, does anyone knows a solution for my G-max problem or is there other software available.

I know my way around in AutoCAD and inventor….

Regards johan

Thanks for the quick response.
I just downloaded the program in case of..
However, the reason of the malfunction was due to the clock settings on the PC.
Once corrected, the key was accepted!
So, Let’s start the tutorials…

I have downloaded GMAX on a new laptop using Windows 10, pasted in the FSX Gamepack and used the workaround for registration. I do notice however that I can create new models but cannot edit the 200 odd old ones and for me, that is a big deal. I also found this on my last laptop but my PC is still ok. Is there a way to fix or open the old model files that doesn't glitch out GMAX? Is this a laptop issue?

You can't load MDL files in gMax, you need the original mesh.

I'm sorry Paul, I didn't make myself clear. I have installed GMAX on a new computer but the old gmax files glitch out when I open them. I can create new ones but what a hastle. Instead of the usual four screens, I get one screen, no texture and lots of static lines. Also, I cannot select or change the screens.

Do you have these problems with gMax at all times or does it occur only when loading an old model? Does gMax itself work properly?

I'm sorry about the delay as I'm only at home one day a week. I've changed my email address so I can pick this up while on the road. I've made a zipfile at http://www.alanblencowe.com/Resources/gmax.zip that has the model and textures and a couple of screenshots. Could this be a windows 10 issue as I had the same problem with my last new computer? I could make new models but not edit old ones. Here are the others finished. I can send gmax and textures privately to modelers if that will help. http://www.alanblencowe.com/FSX/FSX_ModelLibrary.html
