Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / .Obj export crash (broken material used)

Attached is the file as the example. I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate but anyone should be able to reproduce it...

Just open the file and you should see a sphere with a material with bad references to a texture file. Go to Object->Export, export the file and it'll crash and produce an invalid .obj/.mtl file.

Well, I haven't really bothered with much since my alien-pig thing from a while back, so I figured I'd try out some video game art.

Featuring: The Burlap Man
This guy has a burlap bag as its head. He's the main character in a side-scrolling game in which he uses tribal weapons to kill off all the cute cuddly creatures in the jungle. Originally I was going to make him just extremely ugly, but what I drew was so hideous that I had to put a bag over his head :P

The reason behind the game's idea is that there are too many games where cute people/creatures kill off ugly mean monsters, so I'm making an ugly person kill off cute cuddly creatures. Makes sense right?

The specs I'm going for are just a general amount for a mid-level game:
  • Main Characters/Large Creatures: 2000-2500 Triangles, (1)512x512 RGB head texture, (1)512x512 RGB body texture
  • Small/Medium Size Creatures: 500-1500 Triangles, (1)512x512 RGB texture
  • Weapons/Props: 100-300 Triangles, (1) 256x256 texture
  • Animation Cycles: Walk, Run, Jump, Duck, Idle, Attack1, Attack2

I'll be trying to make everything nice and colorful and creative. Can't say it'd be very original though, since this kind of thing has been done before ;)

i figured i'd get more exposure by posting the same stuff in the same kind of topic at both and so that non-org users can take a look at my stuff

i'm reserving this topic as a posting place for my artwork that isn't specific to any project i'm working on!

here's my first doodle i'm working on, some kind of pig-like alien!
