I wonder how, I wonder why...

I just wanna know how the .... I can import objects into my OpenGL game, I want to import .3ds or .lwo or something like that, but I don't want to Import them in .cpp format, because it sucks. I want to import them direct, so I can change the models later without compiling again. I want to import the objects WITH the textures like other games, like QUAKE...

thanx, that wouldn't be to hard...

No, I wonder if someone out there have a library for opening objects...
I wouldn't even consider to learn the .3ds format, I'm a total newbie, I'm working on my first game...

i suggest 3D studio MAX .ASE files: very simple to parse, and they have anything you need to start.

geometry verts, texture verts, vertex normals, vertex colors...

Your making your first game and you want to load in .3ds files?
Whatever happened to learning to walk first?

Well, I don't presently know of any libraries for loading 3d files, but if you want to get good, I really do recommend you research the file formats for yourself - they are not that hard, honest http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Research, code, make a great game.
