Can anyone tell me what this error is when trying to load a model into VMDViewer or PMX Editor?
The file header has been tampered by the model author so PMXeditor can no longer recognize it as PMX anymore. Open the PMX on a Hexadecimal editor (plenty on the internet). If you compare it to a healthy PMX, the first line of the hex numbers are different. Make them the same and save. Don't worry, nothing could go wrong.
Thanks! I was able to get farther, after modifying the first set (16 characters), I was able to get the info and the vertices to load, but there are no bones and no textures loading. Does this mean that there's more data on other lines changed? How do I know which ones, and how do I go about fixing them?
header changes doesnt affect mmd, load the model in mmd to see if it has bones at all.
Wait no! should only modify the first 8 characters (50 4D 58 20 00 00 00 40). Model breaks if you change anything more than that. You can't fix this and should start over. I guess something could go wrong after all. Sorry >_<.
