well i got the panda .x exporter for 3dsmax 2011... first issue i noticed was that i had to attach all parts together as one else they were randomly thrown into wrong locations.

2nd... it doesent seem to export diffuse/refraction/reflection settings etc . just basic colors (also i did notice that .x isnt natively supported for dx10/11).

Any other extensions supported that would allow refraction/reflection etc exported and therefor used in FPSCx10 ?

ok with the model

just send as x. file

to get reflection this needs to be done in seperate stages

1. your unwrapped texture stored as a dds file
2. copy the dds file and turn it into a normal map
3. make a specular map of the dds file also

this will all be layered together to make the object reflect and have bump etc.
then all you do is add the effect from the effect bank ie


for
doors etc
effectbank\bumpent\bumpent.fx

for characters etc moving monsters etc
effectbank\bumpbone\bumpbone.fx

for lifts etc also try
effectbank\illuminationent\illuminationent.fx

for floors walls etc

effectbank\bump\bump.fx

when using a model that has the x file with animation
and all the textures dds, texture/norm map/ spec map

and added to the file fpe/fpi/fps, files

with the effect put next to effect

and insert in game it should work providing you have a light in there.

an example of fpe with effect added




;header

desc = aztec box

;ai
aiinit = appear1.fpi
aimain = default.fpi
aidestroy = disappear1.fpi

;spawn
spawnmax = 0
spawndelay = 0
spawnqty = 0

;orientation

model = aztec box.x
offx = 0
offy = 0
offz = 0
rotx = 0
roty = 0
rotz = 0
defaultstatic = 1
materialindex = 2
defaultheight = 0
;visualinfo

textured = aztec box_D2.dds
effect = effectbank\illuminationent\illuminationent.fx
castshadow = 0



then it will work


hope this helps on how to add x models and add the textures to fpsc

an unquenchable thirst for knowledge of game creation!!!
