It seems Kimera never ceases to show how things can go wrong one time after another. Well, sorry. I'm working on fixing things up.
I don't quiet understand your problem Mike Strife Nguyen. Is the framerate low? Then you could enable the DList optimizations. It will make the rendering process faster, but I left it disabled this time because it can cause some graphical glitches when you start doing changes.
As for your question NeoCloudstrife, It's hard to reply. I'd provably say about 4. Let's face it, Kimera's desing isn't too good. I tried to do things well, keeping the different comeponents independent, making the code easy to follow... but as time passed I grew tired and started doing some nasty things. Anyway, I'd tell your friend to do some Import/export plug-in for 3Ds Max or something like that. Dealing with one of those plug-ins APIs can be hard (It took me ages to do some things on XSI), but in the end you don't have to worry about all the stupid little bugs that you can read on this thread... frankly, that's what I should have done. Maybe I will.
