I don't know much about it at all, but if you have a directx plugin for 3ds, you can make a directx XFile, which you can then use KernelBase's KernelBasher (the newest Flubber Text Tool) to use that Xfile.

Well, I've never made my own, so I can't really give you input on that.. I just changed mine to a preset that came with KernelBasher, (in my case the XBMC logo). It was retardedly easy, just picked the .x file and applied..

ps, I'd like to know what you come out with, as I'm bugging my friend to do me up something in 3ds as he's been dabbling with directx recently..

Well I seem to be having some issues here so here are a few questions.

1) Where do I get the directX plugin for 3ds 8?

2) Where can I find tutorials on how to do this since I have never done this before?

3) Wasnt there a site where you could download premade ones?I swear I was at one just dont rememebr the site name.

4) Worst case cenario.Even though I realy want to do this myself is there anyone willing to creat my custom "xbox" text for me? Again this is absolute worst case cenario.

I haven't done this before but...
When you download Kernalbasher from x-s here It installs a PDF.
The PDF is a tutorial for useing 3ds.
EDIT: The PDF has links for a trial version of 3ds. It might be different from 3ds 8.
Does that help? Have you seen that already?

I'm really curious what you come up with. Please keep us posted. smile.gif

here is the 3ds xbox text templates. i attempted this a long time ago and havent had any success. basically i was always over a couple vertices and indices. i couldnt make it smaller. maybe it was because i had 3ds max 7 installed, i dunno. so i gave up. i hope you have some success then i did wink.gif

ps: here is a video of my xbox booting up.
