Hi all,

I'm trying to convert some of my old Dark Basic Pro programs to AGK. I'm having a horrible time converting my DBO models, created in 3D World Studio, to something AppGameKit doesn't choke on. For the life of me, I cannot get textures onto the models, they just display as grey. I suspect part of the problem is that the textures are exported as individual files, rather than a map. I've tried several online converters, and I'm no expert in Blender (blimey, that program is tough!) but no joy.

1. Wouldn't it be great if AppGameKit could load DBO files?

2. Could anyone point me in the right direction with this? 3DW Studio exports .x files with separate images for textures, and AppGameKit won't load them with LoadObject().

Thanks in advance for any help,

James

I did a converter ages ago to convert DBO to AppGameKit loadable X files and/or AppGameKit meshmemblocksand put it on the forums here. didn't seem to be much interest so I use it for my own use now,

I had a similar problem with models from DBPro
I had to use loadObjectwithChildren and set the texture for each childobject even tho it was the same texture
but that was with the .3DS models

and was for animated models from DBPro not sure how to import/export DBO files

Hi all, thanks for the replies. I've found this post:

https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/223230 which is BotR's "DBO to AppGameKit MeshMemblock converter" thread, but the program doesn't seem to be on there. Does anyone have a link to this? I'd like to try it out, it might solve all my problems!

Thanks again,

James
