From readme: 1. Drag and drop

From readme:
1. Drag and drop file BonyFaceLight_eng.mzp to 3ds max window.
2. Go to Customize\Customize User Interface\Toolbars, and create new toolbar.
3. Select "ScriptAttack" from Category list and drag label "BonyFace v2.0 Light" to your toolbar. The button will be created there.
If you wish, you may drag the label to any standard toolbar without creating your own toolbar.

Where is your steps 2-3 after dragging BonyFaceLight_eng.mzp?
Just tested in 2010 x64 - all fine

Hi 1acc,
First of all, the drag and drop file into max window doesn´t work at all. I mean I drag and drop the script but nothing happens. So I run the script through MAXscript/run script and then it pops up a runtime error as I showing you in the Rar file attached.
It does work on 3ds max 2008 32 bits(the drag and drop thing and everything) but it would be cool if it also worked in 3ds max 2010 64bits since it is faster
thank you for your quick response. now im going to bed because it´s 1:34 Am here in Lima-Peru.
Best Regards,

Hi, awesome the light version. I dont understand the align tool . everytime I want to make something with align tool it pops up an "something wrong" window message error and I have to close and restart the script again. can you make a video showing the usage of the align tool please. IT DOESN´T WORK WITH 3DS MAX 2010 64 BITS. can you make the script to work with 3dsmax 2010 64 bits?
