Working With lwo Files
« on: April 07, 2016, 05:38:16 am »

When I attempt to open the file attached below (Runabout_SP.lwo), I receive the following messages from Anim8or: “Missing LWOBJ” and “Error Reading file”. Why does this happen? I encounter this every time I attempt to use a lwo file in Anim8or. I think part of the problems I am encountering with using 3d models and getting proper textures to display is because I have had to convert lwo files to work with them and use them with Celestia. lwo files will not work with Celestia and I cannot get them to work with Anim8or even though Anim8or has "lwo" in the drop down box for importing. I have also included the textures below, all as originally downloaded from the internet. Help please.
