Hello there.
Somehow 3d models I download from the Net (.3ds files) can't be loaded by DB Pro.

Here's what I do:
1) put 3ds file into project directory
2) write a simple code to load the object and display in on screen:

load object "whatever.3ds",1
position object 1,0,0,0
position camera 0,0,500
point camera 0,0,0
wait key

And, you guess it right, it doesn't work. I get Runtime Error 7018 - Could not load 3D object on line 1. I've tried different objects, but to no avail. Please point out what's wrong here. Thanks.

.3DS objects are dodgy anyway - try .X files...

Good news everyone! I really am THAT good... for great plug-ins - oh my, yes!
