I was following the Building Cal3d Models with Blender 2.35 tutorial (http://community.crystalspace3d.org/tiki-read_article.php?articleId=16
) and I finally got to the exporting step when I ran into some problems.
First of all, my export menu looks nothing like the one in the tutorial. It's just the average blender file-browsing window -- no "Export to," no Scale slider, no buttons, or anything. There's a button on the file-browsing window that says "Load UI," and I have it pressed, but nothing happens before I export the mesh, after I export the mesh, or when I hit the button. I don't know what it's for.
Second of all, once I export the mesh, I get one .cfg, .xsf, .xmf, and .xrf file each, but no .cal3d file, and the tutorial says to load the .cal3d file in viewmesh.exe.
When I export my mesh, I make sure I've heeded all the stipulations. The only error I get is that my mesh has multiple armatures so it automatically ignores one of them and continues anyway.
I'm using Blender 2.36; I tried ALL the available blend2cal3d python scripts, from versions .9 to .11. I'm using python 2.3.4 (because, for some reason, if I use any more recent version, NOTHING on my computer recognizes that it is installed) on a Windows XP machine.
Please help, this is very aggravating
Thanks ahead of time.
edit: wait, I lied. I didn't try all the the available blend2cal3d scripts... apparently there's a .5 but I REALLY don't want to use it.
edit2: Ah crap, sorry for all the edits. I juzt realized that on the download page for the blend2cal3d exporter script, it says the latest version is .12, but when I click on "Download," I can only find up to .11. Maybe this is the problem?
