Hey there. I am rather disappointed at the moment. I have been using a tool called Modeler's Garage, a visual basic based modeler, to create and work on race circuits and their aiw files back in the hay day of the game Sports Car GT. After some years I only tried it again for a try and see if I still can do it and found that its open gl mode isn't working anymore. I remember that the open gl mode showed all track textures fine within the tools limit (801 groups) in windows 98. Now in XP the textures are not loaded or get loaded but don't show up anymore. I wonder where this issue comes from. Compatibility mode isn't working at all in this issue.
I wonder now if anything could be done to retrieve this function of the tool coz it helps big time in mapping as it shows if it happened the right way or if a poly or polys mapping is screwed. Any help here is highly welcome.
the tool and the other installation files are available at http://freenet-homepage.de/bobonen/_downloa.htm
In order to run this tool vb6 has to be installed and all delivered ocx and dll files registered to reg.exe in system32 folder.
