Are levels with transparent textures not supported?

Rather than try to explain what's going on, I'll just show you.


Here's what I get in 3DWS:problem1.jpg


And this is what I get when I use the same file (I have a plug-in which allows my program to use .3dw files) in Dark GDK:



The roof completely disappears! Is there a way to fix this, and on which end does the problem lie? Dark GDK or 3DWS?

If you can reload the .3dw file into 3DWS and it displays correctly then it clearly isn't an issue with 3DWS. You could try exporting as a .dbo file and loading that into DarkGDK to see if that displays the texture ok. If so then the issue is probably with the plug-in. You might check that you have exported all the meshes and textures with the .3dw file too and that its not just the fact that DarkGDK can't find them.

I downloaded DarkGDK but never used it, but I think what Pixel has outlined would be the best approach. I have been using 3DWS for a long time now but have never had that problem with any packages I have transfered assets from it to be used in.
