Well that is a shame. I checked your version and there's no mistakes on my end. I also got the black textures on the DirectX Viewer, but when I turn it so its almost completely vertical or horizontal, then its colours appear. I also fiddled around with the settings and turned off an option, something to do with shadows, and the colour came back (more or less). I might try going through the tutorial again, hopefully it was a small typing error that I missed. Thanks all the same.
@Encrypted Im going to attempt to contribute now i have the ability too. I tried a few years back but there was nothing like unreal or a working wings 3d back then. Now everything is possible. I thought "what better way to re-train my self on new software than to try replicating things from my favorite game!"
Its nice and simple animation too so i can really try at it.
