I have 16GB RAM, so I doubt it could be that.

The version I have is 3.1.1 (07-04-2018). And i'll let you know if the normal version does this too.

Nega, It is difficult to say what is the reason. Need more information about your actions that lead to this.

For example, opening this window multiple times can crash the program.

The window will still open, but no files will show up and then it will close entirely.

Maybe it's a problem with my Windows? I was thinking of trying Windows 7 again and using Model Researcher on that.

I updated the program. Added logging.
Download the latest version from the site and run the program using the "-log" option:
C:\%path_to_MR%\ModelResearcher.exe -log

After launch, the out.log file will appear in the program folder. After the program crashes, check the log.

I found one more option that MR doesn't have but Hex2O has. There is no option "noStr FFFF" for faces, only "Triangles", "Tri Strip FF" and "Tri Strip". I Think it's not necessary for most of models, but I have the only one which that option does matter. :D

Can you give an example of a model with a template for Hex2Obj?

Here is H2O sample and template files. In MR faces doesn't look correct.

Thanks! I tried with option Tri Strip or Try Strip FF and that's why faces didn't displayed correctly. I tried Triangles with count 2754 and thats why I got error but when divide faces count by three (918) faces seems to be correct. :)

I'm trying to extract the levels from a PS1 skateboarding game called Grind Session. I found the models inside the level files but they always have missing triangles. I have attatched a rar file that contains the level files for one of the levels as well as some of my templates for different models within the TRACK.DAT file.

I second this.
Also looking to get the models extracted from this game and would like to request adding whatever face-format is required to make the models work properly. :)

Why do you need it? It is hardly possible.

rudi246
I looked at the files with the models. Unfortunately, I did not understand how to extract the model.
