I am trying to modify zelda's model but when I import it into 3ds max it looses its smooth shading, not sure if this the right forum to ask this question, but I am just wondering how you guys deal with this.

    Use "MeshSmooth" in the Modifier List. Alternatively "TurboSmooth".

    thx
    Bonus question. When I import the model back into Brawl Box, the materials and bone-object visibility get all messed up, is there a way to fix this?

    In the Material's folder when selecting a material, scroll up to CullMode to change the materials visibility. And for the object's, go to the Object's folder and change the bone for the Visibility Bone.

    This should've been posted here: http://forums.kc-mm.com/index.php?board=43.0
    Also using Mesh or turbo smooth will raise the polygon count of the model, if you want it to be the same and fix the shading go into the modifiers, select the face edit mode then go down the scroll until you find smoothing groups and then hit the auto smooth there. You can change the angle or manually edit it as well but auto is the fast way of doing it.

    Everything was fine until the 503 Nation attacked.

    Weld is also a good modifier to use as sometimes the vertices aren't always connected so in reality you can sometimes have like 4 times the number of vertices. The Weld fixes this.
    And yah, like Allbait said, this should've been in the Help section.

    I make YouTube videos (which range from SM64 videos to Brawl hack showcases to Let's Plays to animated videos), SM64 hacks, Brawl Hacks (obviously), Gmod Addons, and NSMBW hacks. I also have short attention span and tend to switch around a lot and put things on hold. But when I do finish things, 95% of the time I gave 110% effort, the other 5% of the time I give 100% effort.

    Just dont forget to drag the smooth/turbotsmooth/edit normals/whatever you applied under the skin modifier in the modifier list, I think brawlbox has problems if you dont keep the skin modifier at the top
