See, ive been in the modding years ago, but I did never got out of GTA SA, so I tried to get in the IV era modding, starting with 3DS Max, I installed GIMS, but it comes with problems when I try to import ODR, ive been following many tutorials about rigging, and in all of them, when they import a ODR, the PNG file coming with it, doesn't appear in the model on 3DS MAX, they just get a simple color in the model, and I get the actual texture.
Well, that's one thing, the next are the most important issues, they are two, one of them did never appear until one time it came out, after that, it does ALWAYS appear; whenever i try to import a ODR, it asks me for the texture folder, when I select the texture folder, it says this:

And this:
user posted image
And then, this:
user posted image
For any doubts, this is the folder where I keep all those files:

Okay, the third, I asked several times in different topics about this, they told me i just had to reinstall GIMS, and yes, it worked! But the problem is that when I close the program, and then open it again, it happens again, I reinstall it, open, close, and again, I reinstall it, open, close, and again...
here it is:

So, this is the secuence wich is always happening when I open 3DS Max:
First, I open it:

Then, i click either way yes, or no, if not, the next screenshot does not apply:

Then, after some loading, this:

Then, after closing that:

Then, I try to open an ODR:

After that, it asks me for the texture folder:
user posted image
Then, secondly explained issue pops out:

user posted image

And finally, this:

(Notice that second issue happened even before third issue did confused.gif )
Any suggestions? cryani.gif

i think that errors are caused because you put the odr files in the same folder as the .skel, .mesh and the textures.
