First off, hello! I'm a 3D artist (3ds max user,) interested in prototyping a few game ideas I have. Today I found out about Dark basic.

I just started reading about Dark Basic/Dark Basic Pro I have a few questions.

I see in DB, there is no support for single skinned model animation, just segmented "rigid body" animation. Is that the case for DBpro?

If there is support for skinned models, is it via 3ds max's Skin Modifier, Bones Pro, or Physique?

Naturally, I assume the model must be exported as some format other than .3DS as that file type does not support skinning.

Finally, does DBpro support vertex coloring?

Well, sorry for the newbie questions, thanks for your time!

Any chance I could get those yes and no referenced to the questions I asked? (Or at least point me to some documentation where i can find out?)

DBPro supports halflife and quake model types which have skinned meshes. They're .mdl .md2 etc. or something like that. Also I think .x models support skin meshes in directx 8 now although I could be wrong, I haven't played around with skinned meshes yet.
