bzwtools for blender

Post by Army of One » Wed Feb 12, 2014 3:44 pm

I have recently got back into playing bzflag and making maps for this great game---How ever i now have suse linux 13.1 kde desktop, not sure which kde but i am pretty sure its the latest, like 4. something. Anyway I went to yast software download and downloaded blender- found bzwtools, somehow most links were not working. but i can not get blender to install the plugin in-phython console does not give any errors and blender acts like in installs the plugin but when i look for the bzw expoter/inport funtion its not there- i am using the lastest stable builds for everything-just curious on what i am doing wrong. Thank you very much bzflag community, your the greatest-you have really given me a lot of help in the past-I usally try to look most stuff up and learn to fix it myself but this time i have failed-any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

Army of One

The tools are very old and do not work with the current builds of blender. The author has not maintained them.

OFC, the general documentation (help/manual files) is useful, too.

Also, Calzaath could use Blender here not too long ago. Maybe you just have to use a previous version of it. Try to send him a P. M.:
