    This book covers spacific games too much and not games i deal with. Like Battlefield for example it does not cover. The instructions are VERRY basic and i feel end before they should. 3DS Max 6 bible is way more in depth and can still use gmax with this book. The interface is a little different and gmax dont have some of the 3ds max features but it can still be done easily.

    A disappointment

    I preordered this book a few months ago when i first started looking for books for gmax and i just recieved it today. My main reason for doing so was because i had just bought a game called dungeon siege and this book is supposed to teach you how to make things for the game ie new characters and items. So when i finally got the book, i opened to the section called 'easy character creation with siege max and paint shop pro'. Much to my dismay, the section (which is all of 10 pages with many pictures) has NOTHING AT ALL about making new characters. It tells how to change the way an existing character looks. Another problem i have with this book is how you have to download certain files from the internet to use this book. Even though this book comes with a cd, you are still forced to download these fairly large files to get any use out of the majority of the text. If you are a dialup internet user like me that can get to be a very time consuming thing. Take my advice and look around for FAQs and tutorials on the internet instead of wasting your money on this book.
