Max 2009, just installed and textures not showing
show user profile  capone_adam
Well colour me baffled. Textures are just not showing in Max. They render but do not show in viewport. I have made sure to assign then and click show in viewport button. Got correct ID. Gone into viewport preferences and put then to 'match bitmap as close as possible' , restarted etc Maps are in correct directories etc

Any ideas? I'm sure it's something daft.

Still cannot figure this out. Applying the texture just makes the object go a lighter shade of gray.

I think it's something to do with how there is no open GL option anymore. All I can select is direct3D Direct9x

Aha, found a 'revert to 3D' button or something and was able to change to GL in there. Only problem is now I cannot restart Max!

Yeah I just installed the graphics card driver from my CD, it's worked like that before with my laptop and max2009. Will try getting the latest. Need to go off but will continue thismission later.

Thanks

edit: nope didn't work said driver not compact with my OS. Think it's because I used original XP instead of laptop disk with XP
