    FSX GMAX Material Editor not available after Windows 10 upgrade

    Isolating "gmax_MaxUtils.gup" and "gmax_MaxXML.gup" shows my model all black but Material Navigator works well. Obviously these files are related to MN. Has someone found the solution?

    Thanks Tom, I think that making a little more job we can find a general rule to avoid the trial and error thing.

    FSX Special Animation

    Finally I found something that works for me, and I would like to share it with all you guys. 1- I create the upper and lower objects in gmax. 2- I used Look-At Constaint to set the Keyframes for each part, Upper and Lower objects. The objects are then perfectly aligned. 3- I clone these objects...

    Thanks, Well, I went trough the topics you explain before. First I reset XForm, then I used Look At constraint. Is a very powerful function, and it works neat for making animations in Gmax. Once I collapse my rotation to frames I saw that the rollout related to Look At constraint disappear. This...

    Thank you guys, I verified my animation controllers and are set to Linear. I didn't remember when I did it. Now, I have to update myself about the Reset XForm and Look At constraints. I'll be back soon.

    FSX Gmax - Landing/Taxi Lights for FSXA

    I found the solution. I reset the textures and apply it again adding the night textures. I still have to go deeper in this to understand why.

    FSX Gmax - Landing/Taxi Lights for FSXA

    Sorry to bother you again. I have 5 different Lightmap textures and just the one, used for front and aft fuselage works. I did exactly the same for the other 4. Even I tried to change the Emissive Mode from MultiplyBlend to AdditiveNightOnly and Blend but It doesn't work. As you can see in my...

    FSX Gmax - Landing/Taxi Lights for FSXA

    That's funny! Thanks n4gix. I got it working neat now. I already did my night textures. How can apply it to the model? . I don't see any spot in Material Editor (Gmax). Do I have to add _l or _lm to the name?

    FSX Gmax - Landing/Taxi Lights for FSXA

    Thanks Heretic, something is happening now, but I still have to orient it better. The intensity is very low. I suppose that adding more polygones will add it more brightness.

(In green) 2- I moved the Gizmo (Affect Pivot Only) to make the z axis point opposite to the supposed light direction. 3- Using Attach Point Tool in FS Tools, I...

    Hi Karl, I checked out my paths and I couldn't find any difference. I'm posting some views of my code. Maybe you can fin something wrong if you don't mind. Gmax is installed in drive D where my FSX and FSX SDK are installed.

    Hi, I'm installing Gmax in my new computer running WIN 10. Gmax standard version is working OK. I put FSX_GmaxGamePack in gamepacks folder and have changed gmax.ini and pluging.ini data to the right installed path. I also changed the new shortcut to the gamepack path. I open Gmax from this new...
