(tools for other recent versions of Max such as 2019 may be possible but porting and testing would be required)
The new w3d tools are 100% compatible with files made in Max 8 with the old w3d tools. When you load an old file, WWSkin data is converted to Max skin data automatically. All the material settings and export flags will be read in and converted as well.
Features from the old plugins not currently supported:
Animation compression BFME2 FX shader chunks and associated data NPatches (hardware that actually supports this feature has long since vanished and current versions of Renegade no longer support it) Export with Std Mtls Create Settings Floater Full documentation can be found here: http://tacitus.w3dhub.com/display/WH/W3D+3DS+Max+Tools
How to Install
Download the files! Copy the the files in the "W3D Exporter - Max 2017" folder to your 3DS Max 2017 directory. Default: "C\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2017\Plugins" Run 3DS Max and the tools will load with it! For W3D viewer and W3D Dump, they can be run directly from the folder that they are already in, so they can be copied anywhere. Note: If you have any issues with any missing files, you should install these Visual C++ Redistributables from Microsoft: https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x86.exe and https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x64.exe There is a separate readme included for the source code.

By danpaul88A prototype replacement for RenegadeEx and XCC mixer built upon the W3DHub code libraries which intends to resolve the deficits of both those tools whilst also introducing brand new features.
Currently it features a simple tabbed interface which allows you to view the list of files in any W3D MIX (or DAT) archive and extract one or more files from the archive onto your disk. It will also show a preview image for any TGA or DDS files when they are selected.
Please report any issues and/or request features on the issue tracker: https://gitlab.com/w3dhub/w3dhub-w3dex-net/issues
