i think you need to render to texture first

Yup! Bryan is right. It is widely explained in this thread how to export data to MY3d format. Th main idea behind it is to get the baked textures (lightmaps) and the difuse maps into one single file that can be loaded into Irrlicht.

I know it's a bit long thread, but you'll have to dig into it. There's a step by step howto by Zdimitor himself.

But i have rendered the textures, and they are in the irrlicht\images map. Also i can see the files after the rendering. But as soon as i start the exporting 3dsmax hangs and crashes. (And I followed the step by step howto)

which Max verion r u using? Max5? Are you telling the exporter to include the maps in the file and RLE compression?

just checking; final question, did you compile the plugin yourself? It might have gotten corrupted somewhere.

you could also upload the version of the plugin you got so that we can try it out and see if it crashes Max for us too.

:D

Try to use only textures with diffuse map.

When i've started at first time with my3d had a same problem with simple scene. After changing of material properties /only diffuse map/, got success.

I planing to do new release of My3d Tools, as soon as i can:

----------------------------------------------------------
changes in My3D File Format
----------------------------------------------------------
1) no changes (steel using v.3)

----------------------------------------------------------
changes in My3D Irrlicht Loader:
----------------------------------------------------------
1) Issue with AABB solving (etcaptor did it already);
2) Improvements of loading multiple meshes with the same material, they merge into a single mesh by a loader;
3) Loading normals from MAX (for the dynamic lighting);

----------------------------------------------------------
changes in My3D MAX Exporter:
----------------------------------------------------------
1) Normal will be exporting from max, dont need to calculate them manually (for the dynamic lighting);
2) MAX5, 6 support;
2) Normall mapping ... :( I steel don't try this feature in Irrlicht, maybe later.

-----------------------------------------------------------
