: I never thought you would take that so damn personal. Its my oppinion that it doesnt serve the purpose of a skin painter...
: Anyway just to make every thing clear as crystal.
: I LOVE Quake2 Modeller! Its a great program and I use it ALL THE TIME.
: Perhaps you should not get so upset about little things like this...i dont know if anyone else who read that message thought that i completly hated the entire program or not...i really hope not because that was not my intention. Ppl who have read my earlyer messages here and also on q2modeling (pq mailing list) will prolly notice that if I recommend a program for md2 models then i recommend q2modeller.
: But i do not like the meshpainter (or should i say the meshtester?)...it does not fill a function in _my oppinion_. Yes i know i could have used a more friendly tone in the message (and in this one as well) just to make sure that you did not get upset but you could also take comments about your program (again a good program!) less personal.
: I really do hope you understand that i do not nor have i ever and neither will i ever try to slander or in any other way give a wrongfull impression of a pice of freeware software.
: I do however have the right to have a oppinion.
I agree 100% that it does not fulfill the requirements of a skin painter. But like I said, it was not intended for that.
I didn't take the message personally. I took it from the point of view of a developer, who just had a portion of his/her product denounced for not achieveing a task that it was never intended to do.
All i wanted to do, was it make clear is that it was not a half-hearted stab at a skinpainter type product.
I apologize if my response seemed emotionally or personally based, and the response was NOT meant to be interpreted this way.
Also, there is no need to lighten up the tone of any message, If that is what you feel about a product, then come right out ans say it. Any form of critiscism is usually good.
And EVERYONE has a right to an opinion, and a right to express it.
