 +====== Setting Up Meshviewer by Runic & TLMeshViewer by Dusho ======
 +
 +When working with Torchlight models we want to use tools to help us.
 +
 +A model viewer is really needed and working with two model viewers is great.
 +
 +===== 1. Torchlight Model Viewer by Dusho =====
 +
 +**Download:​** https://​code.google.com/​archive/​p/​torchlight-mesh-viewer/​
 +
 +This is a very simple model viewer. It's my standard MV.
 +
 +Set up the .MESH files to open always with this application.
 +
 +Right-Click any .MESH file go to Proprieties and change the application there. From now on every time you double click a .MESH file is going to open it with Torchlight Mesh Viewer.
 +

 +
 +===== 2. Mesh Viewer by Runic Games =====
 +
 +Unfortunately this wonderful mesh viewer comes with some problems (//Failed to Init Mogre. External component has thrown an exception.//​)
 +
 +Thanks to Kva3imoda we have a solution. I found this on Runic Games forums (http://​forums.runicgames.com/​viewtopic.php?​f=57&​t=54581).
 +
 +This MeshViewer is inside the //GUTS Tools and Assets// from Runic
 +
 +**Download:​** http://​docs.runicgames.com/​wiki/​GUTS_Tools_and_Assets
 +
 +In order to make it work you have to create a shortcut "Mesh Viewer.lnk"​ in the folder "Send to"
 +Path: C:​\Users\******\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo\
 +
 +Once you do this, you can right-click a .MESH file and go to "Send to" and select "Mesh Viewer"​.
 +
 +{{:​tlmeshviewer02.jpg?​700|}}
 +
 +As you can see here to the left we have the model opened with Dusho TLMeshViewer. To the right the same model is opened with MeshViewer from Runic.
 +
 +
 +===== Conclusions =====
 +
 +Both MV are great and I usually work with both for references and other things.
 +
 +Hope you can use both and set up everything properly.
 +
 +Thanks for reading. Gao
