Modeldef.xml GUIDs issue

Postby AlexisVGR » Fri Dec 28, 2018 9:35 pm

It looks like the 3ds max tool Animation Manager doesn't catch GUID formatting errors (tested with P3D v4.4 SDK).

I accidentally added an extra character into a GUID's first section making it 9-character instead of 8. The animation was assigned and exported into a .x file without issues.

The problem was caught when compiling with XtoMDL which refused to compile and logged a guid formatting error.
