3ds Max 7-8?

Postby Shanat » Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:26 am

Hi there! I'm Shanat.
I'm new here, but a long time fan of Myst. Recently I decided to try and create an age but I can use just 3ds max. I searched the Autodesk website but they say you can download 3ds max from 2015 to 2018, while you need 3ds max 7 or 8 to create ages. Can you help me? I don't know where I can find that version. Or is there any possibility to use the last 3ds max?
Sorry for my bad english and thanks for all the help you can give me! :)

I've used Blender to make ages although a friend of mine used 3ds Max 7 along with Cyan's pluggin to make his ages. You will also need the latest version of Drizzle. Here is a link to get you started: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4308

Shorah!
Thanks for the reply. To say the truth my problem is to find 3ds max 7: it’s an old version and I can’t find it on the autodesk site. I installed drizzle and I downloaded the plugin but it seems it doesn’t work with the new 3ds max.

This is not entirely correct. You need a version of the plugin which was built specifically for the version of 3DS Max you wish to use (they all have different SDKs). As far as I know, the 3DS Max plugin works for all versions between Max 7 and Max 2012. Later than Max 2013 is a problem because they only support 64-bit plugins, and Plasma is not yet 64-bit compatible (along with lacking a 64-bit PhysX compatible with the engine).

If you want a free way to create Ages, I would recommend learning to use Blender with our plugin Korman. It is being actively maintained and developed, and works with the latest version of Blender (both 32- and 64-bit).

I see! That’s why it didn’t work! I’m 64-bit. Thank you very much! I’ll try to learn blender.
Have a nice day!
