I have never used DBPro or DB, and i have some questions.

Which format is best to use for limb/bone animations. I have CharacterFX but it does not export MD3 format (I dont even knows if that file format is good or not..).

Does .3ds or .x format stores bone-structure?
(I heard about DX9 stores bones structures..)

I guess that bones and limbs is the same...

I have characterFX too and its brill, I've used it to export loads of .x models with bone animation and they're supported with DBPRO.

.x 3D files do support bone animation but .3ds doesn't as far as i know.

To make a .x file animate correctly you must have every single vertex assigned to a bone or it will animate very strangly.

Thank you for the answer

That sounds good to use .x models, I will try that.

I have not yet used limb/bones animation in DB so it will be exciting to try. I am currently just look into DB to see what it can do.
