Advice needed on Modding please what is the best App to download for ease of use to make new costumes. I have a Mac not Windows I've tried Blender but it just crashes every time I try to download it. Cheers

If your mac is crashing during download, check:
1- are you downloading from blender.org?
2- if so, what is wrong with your mac?

If your machine crashes after you have downloaded blender when you are trying to launch the blender program check: what is wrong with your mac?

I use mac too, and never experienced any problems either downloading or running blender.

Perhaps you have an overfull hard drive?
Hope this helps.

Cheers Bongo,

My Mac is running fine and the hard drive is quite M/T - so I'll check it's the correct Blender

Anything you use will take a learning process... but Blender is probably the most versatile tool.
You will need Blender 2.49 for MS exporting, and dont use any version newer than 2.62 if you want to export costumes to MS, because: newer versions of Blender are not backward compatible with v2.49, which is the only version of Blender that has an export script for MS.

There may be another way.

 

More recent versions of Blender can export files in Milkshape3D format. Now Milkshape is only available for PC, but there is a Mac version of a Milkshape-ish clone (better in my opinion) that opens Milkshape files.

 

It's called Jalada Sculpture.

It can then export CAL3d in the proper formats.

 

That way you can use the latest version of Blender (2.76). ;)

 

You can download the skeletons in Milkshape format here, that either Blender or Jalada can read.
