Great script - I have an issue though
When i select a loop/ring the script ends - it doesn't callback to start the script again.
I'm using 3dsmax 2011, I've put the script in my 3dsmax dir scripts/startup
wondering if there's anything I'm doing wrong?

thanks
Andreas

Hi, Alex! I have a few

Hi, Alex!

I have a few questions. Agaian. :)

1. Is it possible to put the category of Mouse Loop-Ring, so I can place a button on toolbar and load script directly? The script work very well, but sometimes it's stop working(every time when I use http://illusioncatalyst.com/ic_tools.php#IC_PolySplitRing). I try to put the category of script, but every time script fail to load. Is it possible to have a categoru or not?

2, Is it possivle to extend selections of script with vertices and polygons?
I made some changes and now I can select vertex and polygons loops and rings, but... I the script that I used to do this is capable to make only one vertex or polygon Loop/Ring. And it is impossibe to add another Loop?Ring to curent vertex/polygon selections.

Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rTbnclLey8

Best Regards!

P.S. I use James Haywood vertex/edges/polygon Loop/Ring script - http://www.jhaywood.com/maxScripts.htm

The first version of script

The first version of script was work is not stable (with pressing and holding LMB).

So I refused to use this method.

With last version you can also use Loop selection or Ring selection with pressed Shift-key.(Like Silo or Modo)

Alex, you are simply the

Alex, you are simply the best.
Thank you very much!

At first I thought that I must first choose the edge and then execute double click. :D Thank ypu for the explanation and for this beautiful and very useful script.

I change my Windows XP's double clicking time to 190 ms. Then change tm_click value in your script(I hope you do not mind) and now I select edge loop very very fast.

One more questions. Can you make a script that select edge loop with hold down LMB(like first Mouse Loop-Ring script), where we can change delay time, and with double LMB click to select edge ring?

Best Regards!

P.S. If someone wants to change the mouse double clicking time in WIndows XP - see how to do this here: http://www.liutilities.com/products/registrybooster/tweaklibrary/tweaks/...
You have to reбоот your PC.

And here you can see how fast is your double mouse click:

Just execute double LMB click and see the result.

To miauu. Do not need to

To miauu.
Do not need to double click.
You should make a click and after the half-seconds make second click.
Almost double click. :)
Unfortunately 3dmax has some stupid restrictions to solve it a script...

To Fenom
3ds max 2010 not correct working with callbacks.
After each opening or reseting scene manually start script.
I will try in the near future to solve this problem.

Thank you very, very much!

Thank you very, very much!
You are Great!

Best Regards!

P.S. I have a question again :) is it possible to select loop with second mouse click. Now, with first mouse click I select an edge, then I have to do two mouse click to select an edge loop. Is it possible with first click to select an edge and then, if I made a second click in next 0,2 sec(for ezample) to select whole loop.
