Specificity, the following plugin's won't load with Gmax (so install to 3DSMax v4+ only):


3doexport.dle, 3doimport.dli, asciiimp.dli, Esmexport.dlu, GEOExport.dle, GEOimport.dli, ghoul2imp.dli, HDxfExp.dle, lwo2imp.dli, Max2MayaAsciiExp50.dle, Max2MayaAsciiExp60.dle, md3imp.dli, Mli2Max.dli, NifImport.dli, NWN2Utils.dlu, objimp.dli, PVRExp_v4.dle, SDFImport.dli, smdlexp.dle, VDFImport.dli, vrmlexp.dle (stdplugs dir), and xfrog.dlo


This is something I've had in my plugin archives and I thought I would share here since most of these can't be found online anymore. Hope they help, and happy modding!


P.S. - Also, there has been a rendering plugin created for GMax a long time ago ...for those who'd like to render images of their masterpieces. Just do an internet search for "GMax Renderer" and you should find it.

If any of the plugins fail with Error 126 at start-up... it means it is missing a required dll. Please let me know and I'll try to help you find it and sort it out.
