blender import SCRIPT->3d max DW7 script help~

3D MAX 2012 / SCRIPT -> DW7 ->UV ERROR?


file

texture file: file-G1T
http://www.mediafire.com/?ywfw7e4wu7a4k43


character modeling file: file-elixir(ez)
http://www.mediafire.com/?7q6eb4ufuaq24em

I can't do it.

Please tell us blender :cry:

3d max script want I'm asking
