Cheers lads, thanks for the reply’s. I heard that games like Doom 3 and Half Life 2 had around 5,000 tri’s. Maybe I an wrong. SI unit?
And to Barry Gallagher, I am not that new, I have been using max for over 2 years now, and I do know how to press the more button under the utilities tab. But I am afraid it is not available in max 9, the polygon counter is not where it used to be, I dont know why they did this but they did. Never thought about using the edit mesh modifier but it looks like the only solution I can use unless there is a third party piece of software somewhere.
One more question, is there somewhere you can go to find out the poly tri count for a game or do you just look and take an approximate guess how many poly’s in that game. Cheers again for the help.
