    Question Anyone have an XP computer or an XP VM that runs Shiny?

    I need a little help adding specular gloss to a few model files.

    Does anyone still have a computer that runs WinXP, or one with an XP virtual machine, that can run Shiny?

    My current rig runs Win10pro and will eventually have an XP VM but that won't happen for a while since my friend who knows how to set this stuff in presently overwhelmed with multiple serious family and medical troubles. So for now I can't gloss up the model files that a few skins for the B-45 project require. It's the last thing to be done before the project is ready for release.

    Hi Mick,

    It could be done using MDLMAT which works just fine on W10. PM me with your need.

    Cheers

    I just tried to see if I could figure out enough about mdlmat to do the job. Mdlmat loaded normally and I could open a model file with it. I went through every line and changed the specular level from black to white only to find that the save button was grayed out and wouldn't work.

    I should have looked at that first before I wasted my time!

    I have PM'd you with more information.
