-====== Torchlight to Blender Import and Export ====== 
  
-By: Wolven 
- 
- 
-__Notes:__ 
- 
-* Blender version: 2.71 
- 
-* Ogre Tools version: 1.7.2 **Note:** TL1 won't work with new 1.7.2 exported models. So use version 1.6.3 for TL1 models and version 1.7.2 for TL2 models 
- 
-* Torchlight to Blender version: 0.6.2 
-

- 
-===== Download and Install Blender ===== 
- 
- 
-Download Blender here: http://​www.blender.org/​download/​ 
- 
-Install as instructed. ​ 
- 
- 
- 
----- 
- 
- 
-===== Download and Unpack Ogre Command Line Tools ===== 
- 
- 
-Download Ogre Tools: here: http://​sourceforge.net/​projects/​ogre/​files/​ogre-tools/​1.7.2/​ 
- 
-Now unpack the OgreCommandLineTools_1.7.2.zip archive, and copy it to a directory with no spaces in it. It's also recommended to use a short directory structure. The Torchlight to Blender plug in is very picky about where it can find these tools. 
- 
-On my system I've place the Ogre Tools in the root of my C: drive, in a folder named: '​ogre_tools'​ 
- 
-  C:​\ogre_tools 
- 
- 
- 
----- 
- 
- 
-===== Download and Install Torchlight to Blender ===== 
- 
-Download Torchlight to Blender here: https://​code.google.com/​p/​torchlight-to-blender/​downloads/​list 
- 
- 
-In Blender go to: **Edit --> User Preferences --> Addons**. Then click the '​**Install from File**'​ button, browse to the zipped archive (ImportExportTL_blender25x_v0.6.2.zip) and install it. 
- 
-This should place the plugin in the this directory: **//​C:​\Users\<​UserName>​\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.71\scripts\addons\io_mesh_TL\//​** ​ 
- 
- 
-Next you need to tell the import/​export plugin where it can find the Orge Tools. 
- 
- 
-Open the directory where you just installed the plugin. (**//​C:​\Users\<​UserName>​\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.71\scripts\addons\io_mesh_TL\//​**) 
- 
-Edit the file named: '​**_init_**'​ with a text editor like Notepad. 
- 
-Scroll down a bit and change the path to the OgreXmlConverter.exe from the Orge Tools, so it points to the directory you placed it in: 
- 
-  # Path for your OgreXmlConverter 
-  OGRE_XML_CONVERTER = "​C:​\ogre_tools\OgreXmlConverter.exe"​ 
- 
- 
-**Note!** The '​AppData'​ directory is hidden by default, so enable hidden directories in Explorer. Or type this in the Windows Search Field, and Explorer will open the directory for you: 
- 
-  %AppData% 
-  
- 
- 
----- 
- 
- 
-===== Enable the Import-Export Plugin in Blender ===== 
- 
-In Blender got to: **File --> User Preferences --> Addons**. 
- 
-Scroll down the list until you see: '​**Import-Export:​ Torchlight MESH format**'​ and tick the box to enable it. 
- 
-You should now be able to Import and Export MESH files from/to Torchlight with Blender.
