View Full Version : Evaluate al only outputs numbers

01 January 2008, 02:09 PM
Hi, i'm having some trouble running scripts in the Maxscript editor. When i press evaluate all it only displays a number in the script listener window without showing the actual menu/rolout. It doesn't matter wich script i'm trying to run they all display just a number when i hit evaluate all, even the sample scripts from the 3DS max DVD. I think i might hit a shortcut or something but i can't figure out what it is :(.

I just reinstalled 3DSMax but even that doesn't work. I just can's seem to run any script:sad:.

You are executing macroscripts, not scripts !!!
Macroscripts have a '.mcr' extention while scripts have a '.ms' extention.

1. open the macroscript in the editor
2. at the top of the file look for the line containing 'category:'
3. evaluate the macroscript,
4.go to menu 'Customize/customize User Interface'
There, in the category drop-down list, look for the category of the Macroscript you just evaluated. The macroscript will be listed below.
5. assign the macroscript to a Keyboard shortcut or Toolbar or Quad
6. done !
