MaxPyDarkTheme – Dark Theme Python for 3Ds Max

How to install:

  1. IMPORTANT! Close down all your 3Ds Max.
  2. Run a new 3Ds Max window as admin by : Start > type in “3ds max” > right click on the icon > “Run as administrator”
  3. Now, since you run 3Ds Max as admin, you can’t drag & drop the installer to the viewport.
  4. On the top menu, Scripting > Run Script
  5. Choose [DarkPyTheme_by_ManniiCode_x.xx.mzp] and then ‘Open’.
  6. Close down 3Ds Max, installation done, next, just run it normally.

Installation Note:

  1. It needs to Run as administrator because python.properties only lives inside maxroot.
  2. The script is tested on 3Ds Max 2023, It’s highly recommended to use 2022.3 and up.
  3. If somehow things go wrong, the script already made a backup during installation, and it’s called python_backup.properties.
  4. To recover, just delete [C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2023\python.properties] and rename the “python_backup.properties” to “python.properties".
  5. This Dark theme has been designed with a slightly different color scheme than DarkScintilla, making it easily distinguishable when switching between languages. Maxscript = Black, Python = Blue
  6. If you don't have Dark Theme for Maxscript, check out DarkScintilla
