|My goal has been to write a Quake 3 arena MD3 import plugin. The design is somewhat unique...the plugin that DeleD calls is written in C++ but calls functions on an embedded python script to do the parsing actual work. Very flexible once you bolt down the C++ part. You can change the logic in the python script that does the heavy lifting over and over as long as the functions that interact with C++ don't change.
So far I've got it pretty close to done (minus the morph target animation part). Estimate a few more weeks.
Is there any standard on how to make the GUI part? I did not see any of that in the Wiki. So far I have hard-coded the file string pointing at model to import in the C++ code. I need a dialog to pop up and ask where to look to import the file. Any suggestions on best way to do that?
