Cannot understand this, I use Version 1.70 and have no problems.. if you check the downloads at Chumbalum you will find there is a graphics patch for version 1.70 that includes a couple of open gl drivers that address this issue Here
I dont use 1.71 as i found that it crashes randomly when you try to regroup some faces, dont know exactly why...
Well, that link is down, and if you mean the mesa dlls, that is for graphics card working... I got those already. I can open the texture coordinate editor, but I see nothing, some things, buttons etc. do nothing, and if I click somewhere in that grey empty field the program usually just crashes. well that's it.
I am doing UV mapping in gmax for now, also it is easier to regroup parts etc., rotate view, hide/unhide stuff etc. really much easier once you know the commands.
What I found out lately is that, even although it shows up correctly in gmax and MS, aprts of textures that are outside the UV mapping gizmo (file gets repeated at that point) will not be shown in FL, but streaks of the color of the texture at the border of the gizmo.
The only solution so far seems to be to remap the parts where this happens, and then make the gizmo 2 times as large, but use the tiling feature to still have the texture mapped correctly, that should do it.
Nt much of a problem to do this. It's just annoying to experience this once your model is finished, all done and in FL you see the problem, and have to go back to gmax and remap... Well, is there any way to uncollapse UV maps in gmax? "Unwrap UV map" sounded like that, but I couldn't find out how it would do the job...
EDIT: It partially allows to edit collapsed UV maps. Using the offset feature for the images I might be able to fix this without redoing the UV maps itself... I just hope it will show up correctly in FL, for some very odd reason gmax placed some, but not all images with some sort of offset into the material navigator (this does not depend on whether it is a square or rectangle from what I have seen!).
