I have a GI_joe script available to download, it's just that the instructions are hard to follow. Could some one write a easy tutorial on how to install?

Unzip the GI_joe.zip and copy the mel and the scene file (GIJoe.lights) into your script directory.
Copy the GIJoe_icon.bmp into the 'icons' directory of the install directory of Maya (i.e.: drive:\AW\extras\icons)

with notepad edit the mel script and search the string 'your_script_directory_path/GIJoe.lights' (located in line 57)
Replace the existing path by your own script path (ex: d:/Maya/scripts/GIJoe.lights) . notice how its / not \. so D:\ would be incorrect , D:/ would be right. the slashes that is.

- Start a Maya session, and open the script editor by going to Window / General Editors / Script Editor. Once script editor is open , goto file / open script. open up the GI_Joe mel script , once its open goto script / execute. Once you have done that , use the command box at the bottom of the screen and type GI_Joe

its case sensitive so GI_Joe

dont take my word for it though, im sure there is a easier way , but whenever i type source GI_Joe it doesnt work. im sure someone here should know why

Here is the first problem I ran into while following the instructions.

How do I find the icons directory? I can't even find the install directory of maya. You wrote down the same instructions from the site I downloaded the GI_Joe script from. The instructions are too hard for me to follow at this time, sorry.

I can't go any further on this until I get more info on it.

I just source it each time I want to use it. I don't use it all that often, so that works for me.

Source it? How do you source GI_Joe ? Don't you have to install it into Maya before you can use it?

Window > General Editors > Script Editor.

File > Source Script

As long as all the files associated with the MEL are in the same directory, after you source it, just type GI_Joe; in the command line.

I just type source GI_Joe.mel command line. or maybe without the .mel

I cant remember and it's not open to test. What a useless post this is :/

These handy instructions for GI Joe, which Icarus kindly wrote for me, worked well; perhaps they might help.
