-------------------
If peoples wander where to get Softimage XSI Mod Tool v6.01, you can find it at:
https://www.moddb.com/downloads/xsi-mod-tool-601 (XSI Mod Tool 6.01 file)

For the software Milkshape3d you can find it at:
http://www.milkshape3d.com/ (chUmbaLum sOft)

I know that you can do Milkshape3d files with the software BforArtists.de version 1.0.0 that is based on Blender version 2.79b

Because Pinsimdb is not there anymore, i have think to simply add the Milkshape3D addon in zip format here. This make possible to export and import ms3d files with BforArtists version 1 or Blender version 2.79b.

Brief update the first post here to help the peoples here. The instructions are quite simple for the addon. Download the zip file first. Let the zip file as it is, without unzipping it. Because the 3D software install the files that are into the zip. You can do an antivirus check, just to be sure the file is fine; or do what ever check you want. After you go to the preferences of the software. Next you go to the section "Addons", there should be an (install button). When you press the (install button), the software will ask where is the addon? You simply indicate the directory, to the zip file that have the data needed; then click the button so the software do the installation.

If you want to know fiew things to do about the 3d modeling software BforArtists, i have created some time ago a free pdf guide about version 2.0.0 at: https://drive.google.com/open?id=17ANvDZvigt1y_UpNUBHhKyY2pZLu8HMr (bforartists_sfavron.pdf)
But please take note that the Milkshape3d addon previously mentionned is not compatible with BforArtists version 2, only for BforArtists 1.0.0 that is based on Blender v2.79b. They have a free pdf guide of more then 1000 pages for version 1.0.0. The thank's goes to BFA from BforArtists, that have givin me a press kit of images about BforArtists, with it i could create some background image look for the pages of the guide. Maybe some peoples could create a Milkshape3d addon for the recent software BforArtists?

A+

Thank's for pinned Shiva into End Guides. I'm certain that it will help many peoples. I'm glad to take some of my living time to help peoples for the good of peoples. But i'm gonna be modest, if it was not from the many help of peoples that had teach my self many things into FP; i could not give good explications. Also the thank's goes to Christopher from FP, to Mete Ciragan from Milkshape3d, from Sebek that created Gfx2DmdF, from the peoples at Pinsimdb and many others; that have givin me the authorizations and permissions that i can do printscreens for the many free none official pdf guides i have created
 
There is no problem, i'm always glad to help when i can and have time. I help not only with my free Futurepinball pdf guides. I have created other free pdf guides, some for company's as some none official guides. There is a guide i have made long time ago about an old version of a 3D software called BforArtists https://www.bforartists.de/forums/topic/bforartists-2-version-2-0-0-free-none-official-pdf-guide/ that is based on Blender 3D modeling software. The version 1 of BforArtists with some Milkshape3d addon on Pinsimdb can make create 3d model for FP. I have created a free pdf guides about creating your own pdf guides with OpenOffice, for Muses.org, for MameWah, for Milkshape3d, etc. Long time ago i even have helped Rav by creating the BAM logo for him.

Also there is some company's that i have created for them some none official free pdf guide, about there software to create webpages; of course with there acceptances and permissions. For Nicepage.com : https://nicepage.com/questions/197519/look-at-my-free-none-official-nicepage-pdf-guide , i have from them as they mention the "green light". This is one company beside other company's that have there software to create webpages. Long time ago there was also TemplateToaster: https://templatetoaster.com/forum/6422/free-tt-mini-pdf-guide as they mention on the forum it is "highly appreciated". There are others also @VPGamer75 that i helped.

Some peoples ask me why also write free pdf guides about softwares that create webpages? Simply because i think of peoples wanting to promote there talents with some webpages, even some peoples that want to simply do some basic pages for there services. Simply because i think that peoples have talents, and if it help them have better good ways of life; i'm glad for each of them.

I dont know when i'll die of something it could be of age, an accident or what so ever. I just take my living time for the goodness of peoples, wanting good things for the peoples. Life has been hard for me, it is still hard for me. I still continue to do good things for the peoples. Maybe the things i have done for the peoples, as volunteer for health organism as cancer, multiple sclerosis and others; for there funding events. Have made peoples have better lives. Maybe my free pdf guides have changed and helped peoples have better lifes. I dont know? But i still want good things for the peoples. đź‘Ť
 
Thank you for your guides, a lot of useful info here.!!!!
 
do you only do FP?
any VPX?
 
@HZR Its my pleasure that my free even old pdf guides about futurepinball help. The thanks goes more to the peoples that have granted my self permissions and authorisations that i do printscreens. For the peoples trust and help in my self to make me understand how many things work. When i think in the past all the peoples that have taken many hours for me, explaining my self live to my questions and interrogations; to understand more the softwares. The thanks goes to them and Christopher (futurepinball) for his acceptances that i do screenshots. He is the first guy that granted me permissions, because in the past i wanted to explain other softwares; asked the company's for a simple yes or no, but they did not want.

So i got to say that Christopher is a person that is into my heart. Many peoples in my life, did not want to help me progress in life; many times peoples did not believe me and in my good intentions. Some peoples made fun out of me, telling me that i am not worth and is a waist of time. So many times i have knock on doors, but no peoples had open there doors for me. I'm sure there are peoples that lived my situations, where no ones believe in yourself; and no ones want to help you progress in life. So each of you out there for your help in my life, many thanks from all my heart.

A big mental illness i have is that every things i do, i do it slow and learn slow. Like in school what some normal person do in 1 year, i do in 3 years. But this illness have some very big strength, because my brain activity is slow it make my brain visualize and analyze slowly in a much more deep level. Like some peoples that there sens of smell is not good, there tasting of food is much more developed.

There is other peoples that i give my thanks, like Mete from Milkshape3d for also his acceptances and permissions to explain how to use the basic of Milkshape3d to create 3d models for futurepinball. This beside the Pinsimdb team, so that i can do also printscreens of the FpmEditor. Thanks to the many peoples that took hours to explain me how to do things with fp and other things. I just think of all theses peoples that have opened there doors for me.

What ever i do, the fiew knowledges i have and share free. I think in my self if it help peoples have a better life, do great and good things with the fiew informations and tips i give. If it bring peoples a smile or even a better life, it's like im part of your lives giving you great and good things for each of you; and i am happy for it and happy for you.

The comments i receive about my free pdf guides, is that there are clear to understand, with very simple explications; with also some great tips and details to follow. Having this weakness my self to understand many things because my brain is slow, have give me the very big strength to give easy to follow and pass trough explications for all peoples. Also when i create my free pdf guides, i test them my self. Why? Just to put my self in the shoes of beginners, asking my self many times "is the step by step explications are all clear and simple for all?", that's what i do to ensure my self for the goodness of peoples. Sadly i have notice that many guides not from me about many subjects, are not as clear as my free pdf guides.

@pinhead1 To reply to your question, i do only fp because i have learned fp and many peoples trough the years have took many hours to explain me things, things that i also try and experimented. But i am not closed to VPX. But i'll need many peoples help and many hours of learn, because of my slowness to learn and understand. I'll also need an e-mail (to protect my self) granting me permissions and authorisations that i do printscreens of there software to put into the pages. If i receive not a simple "yes you are granted to do printscreens of the software or/and website for your guides and teaching". If i have some reply to check some webpage with many terms and agreements; then i refuse to do some printscreens to explain the software. Specially these terms and agreements are soo much complicate for me to understand. So if i dont have a simple "yes" i am granted, then i dont do my guides.
 
@pinhead1 I have check the files at: https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=11573 and have done a deep search about the file vpx72setup. It have some virus into and it is a "no thanks" for me. I know that there are videos online that say: "it dont have any virus (then the videos instructions say) just disable your antivirus before installing".

The question is.... if it have no virus into, then why asking to disable your antivirus?? I think there answer is because the system detect the files as problematic. So it is possible (without making any accusations) that the peoples that give these kinds of instructions; "possibly' know it have some virus files into??

It could have like: Trojan/Win32, Trojan.Generic @ AI.98, Ransom.Win32.Wacatac.sa, BScope.Trojan.Wacatac

----------
Bam 2in1 version 1.5.341 is fine. You can find it (if file not changed) at:
https://www.ravarcade.pl/download/archive
Or at:
https://web.archive.org/web/20220119222152/https://www.ravarcade.pl/

But Bam 2in1 version 1.5.365 i dont think i like. It could have "maybe":
Exploit.CVE-2020-0601.Gen.2, Exploit.CVE-2020-0601.Gen.2 (B), Malware (ai Score=83), Malicious.5f2f8b, Malicious.high.ml.score

i'm not sure what you talking about.
i apologize if i was not clear to what i was asking.
you are familiar in making tutorial guides for FP.
i was asking if you had the experience and interest in creating some VPX giuides.
there are some user guides for VPX but none for the VPXDT-1073 standalone exec functions in PDF?

I understand that you would like that i create some VPX guides. But because i have detected some virus, this discourage my self of doing so. There are peoples that trust me, so its like if i told to some peoples to download some software that i do think have some virus.

I'm real great at explaining softwares and make it simple and very easy to follow in my free pdf guides. I just care for the peoples. I know that writing online that i care for the peoples, any ones could write the same as me; and that they dont care at all. But i can say that the customers that i serve in real life where i work for years, because of the professional relationship they know and can testify that i do care for the peoples.

I'm gonna check the file that you mention at:
https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=11572
Its not the same link as:
https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=11573

I would love to create some VPX guides, but if other peoples do some deep virus search of the files before installing; they could think that i would like they download some virus. As i said i real want good things for the peoples (of course i'm not perfect) but my intentions are good for the peoples.

Anyway thanks for the suggestion. đź‘Ť

you probably have viruses because you are not doing the maintanance proper.
when was the last time you cleaned out your PC?
 
I not only do some scan once a while, but i have access to some online trusted virus files check companys, because theses company are not my computer (so i guess not contaminated). Doing also comparing results of companys that not communicate each others there results, when similar results could be an indicator.

i mean do a manual cleanout.

@pinhead1 ive got an idea, why not you create some pdf guide about vpx software? I think you know how it work this software? Me i think to create a guide about bam 2in1 with the aio essential from TerryRed when i can. I do think you can do it for vpx, i'm sure you have great good knowledges to share.

Me my little knowledges is not much beside many peoples. When i think all the peoples that created softwares, recreated and programmed as pinball games. There are so much smart, talented and genius peoples. My life is not much beside many peoples. I do think you are a talented person.

@pinhead1 dont worry i still do think you have your own talents. I think long time ago i have created a free pdf guide about creating some pdf document with OpenOffice; it might help you for creating a guide for vpx? The first thing u should do is simply ask if it's ok for them that u do printscreens, to import the images in the guide and have an email from them for there accepting. I dont know at all vpx Sorry. But i can maybe help u to do one.

you still need to cleanout the infections in you PC.
 
He would write guides for VPX, accept when he installs it he gets flagged for viruses,
mainly from file vpx72setup.exe
He uses a work computer and I think he was saying the Virus cannot be disabled because of he does and they get a virus than it would not be good.
