tried opening it in notepad.....
like you suggested, but notepad only recognises text files and Maya is a Maya Binary File.
When I opened it in notepad I just got a whole page full of unintelligeable symbols with alot of squares mixed with letters.
Also, if I did manage to change it like you suggested, how would I save it as a Maya file, as notepad only saves as .txt files.
Any help is much appreciated!!
