Problem with importing mdls to 3ds Max

Whenever I export the mdls from NWN Explorer and try to import them to 3ds Max via NWMax Plus, I get this error

Is there a way to solve this?

NWMax Plus doesn’t work good with 3DS versions after Max 2015. That error looks similar to the GMax skinmesh import/export error. You could try this:

  1. Run 3DS Max as Administrator - directly from the 3DS Exe, not the NWMax Shortcut - and close once all plugins load.
  2. Run as normal starting from NWMax shortcut.
  3. If that doesn’t fix it, then the problem is with the script itself - probably something changed in maxscript between 2015 and 2021.

I runned 3DS Max as Administrator and it solved the problem.
