3ds files import into java3d
Hey all, I have a very troubling ... something... i don't even know how to call this.
i am reading the killer game programming book, now, while I am following the book I try my own stuff you know for trial and error, now i took a few of the 3ds file in the source code of the book and tried to allay it in my own 3D little world and it worked well, now here is the twist, as i loaded the file into 3ds max 9 added material changed the colors did all kind of things to the object, and now when i try to load the file, all the objects whom i have edited, turned out white, with the same 3D little world code as earlier.
now i assume that it has to do with the fact that the old files where made with older version of the program and the 3dsloader is out of date,
now could any one tell me if i'm right or wrong with my assumptions, and if there is any where to get an up to date Loader, because by what i saw it will really take me weeks to write a good loader that will cover most of 3ds max properties...
great thanks to all...
just so you know i'm sitting 12 hours nearly straight just trying to make this thing work in the past day and a half.
any help would be appreciated
