Firstly, my maya directory isnít C:\Documents and Settings\chris\My Documents\maya
like most of you guys. For some reason itís C:\Documents and Settings\chris\maya
. Donít ask me why this is cos I donít know
, I tried to reinstall maya, but that didnít change it, so Iíll have to live with it.
1. I put the GIJoe_icon.bmp
in the folder C:\AW\Maya4.0\extras\icons
(as instructed in the pixho.com instructions)
2. I put the GI_Joe.mel
files in the folder C:\Documents and Settings\chris\maya\4.0\scripts
3. I opened the file GI_Joe.mel
in ConTEXT, went to the line 57 [which is string $pathL = "e:/vfx/mans/maya/scripts/GIJoe.lights";
] and changed the path in that line to "C:\Documents and Settings\chris\maya\4.0\scripts\GIJoe.lights";
Ė thatís where itís GIJoe.lights
4. In maya I typed: source GI_Joe;
I pressed Alt+Enter to execute and the GI_Joe preload window appears.
5. I close the GI_Joe preload window and highlight the text entered in point 4. and drag it into the shelf and give it a name [GI_Joe]
6. I press the GI_Joe shelf icon and the GI_Joe preload window appeared.
7. I clicked Go Create
and the following message appeared in the script editor: // Error: File not found.: C: Documents and Settingschrismaya4.0scriptsGIJoe.lights //
I tried all the following commands to get the slashed to appear:
C:\\Documents and Settings\\chris\\maya\\4.0\\scripts\\GIJoe.lights
C:\Documents and Settings\chris\maya\4.0\scripts\GIJoe.lights
C://Documents and Settings//chris//maya//4.0//scripts//GIJoe.lights
C:/Documents and Settings/chris/maya/4.0/scripts/GIJoe.lights
Each time I executed this command I got this syntax error: // Error: Syntax error //
Well, Iím doing everything the instruction ask for but it isnít working
Yeah, but no but yeah but no....
