MDLX converter
2 Attachment(s)
Now without .NET and pretty thorougly tested.

- Click "Convert" and choose one or more files to convert.
- Click "Repeat" to do the last batch over again. This
is useful if you had an error in your MDL and just went
back to fix it.
- You can also click and drag files onto the program
from Explorer or open MDL/X files with it. This makes
converting a file as easy as going into the right click
menu in Explorer.

source would be kind of good anyways it works and it seems it even does stuff correctly and could replace yobgul's what is amazingly good. Approve + rep

Great : ) I like the repeat function. And theres no stupid error when you close it like on YobGuls : )

ah... I was in a great need of a good coverter and this one seems to be great.

I sense Vexorian asking him how to make it I think... +rep for the good job to make the converter.

I updated it. I had forgotten about ParticleEmitters (ParticleEmitter2s were fine) and it now the file dialog remembers the file type.

The source is kind of a mess. I might post it some time.

anyway +rep

I posted a new version with some bug fixes (for ParticleEmitter2s) and here is the source.

i downloaded a huge model pack off filefront that claimed to be a WC3 model pack, all of the files are .MDL and all 5000+ of them seem to fail when i try to convert them... solutions? or is it possible that they are for a different game and will not convert? :roll:

You can import the mdl files directly

I found a bug, it fails to convert right models that have an omnilight, the light ends lighting the whole map. Plz try to fix it, I really like this tool.

I also experienced the bug yesterday, then after a little seach I finally found the problem.
I'm not sure that people still need this, but there are the fixed executable & sources.

- 2 compile errors (with VS2008)
- Omnilight's corrupted conversion

Hidden information:
MdlxData.h (modified), from lines 4262+:

//It turns out that omnilights was not converted properly during .mdl to .mdx conversion.
//When a corrupted model is used in a map, this leads to map's lightning to be totally broken.
//It happened because TYPE_LIGHT was added to the light's type (Omnidirectional, Directional,
//Ambient) value. (~profet)

if (line->type==LINE_FLAG && strmatch(line->label,"omnidirectional")) {
} else if (line->type==LINE_FLAG && strmatch(line->label,"directional")) {
} else if (line->type==LINE_FLAG && strmatch(line->label,"ambient")) {
