Export Script for Blender 2.80

https://mxsimulator.com/scripts/jm_export_280.py

1. Download via Right click, Save link as.
2. In Blender, open Edit / Preferences.
3. Go to Addons and click "Install...".
4. Find "jm_export_280.py" and click "Install Add-on from File...".
5. Find "Import-Export: Export MX Simulator Model" in the list and check it to enable the add on.

This is a little different from the previous script for material settings since the blender internal renderer has been removed in 2.80. For this version, select "eevee" as your render engine in the render tab, unselect "use nodes" in the material panel and then use "metallic" to set the environment mapping alpha, "specular" to set the specular intensity, and "roughness" to set the specular exponent. The specular settings are only used when there is no specular map.

All my exports turn out black like UVs aren't working or something. I've tried changing material settings but nothing seems to work.

Looks like they changed how texture coords are stored and it didn't cause an error because I had it in a try block. I'll have it fixed shortly.

The texture coords should be fixed now. I didn't rename the script so you can re-download from the same link. The script version will be 0.4. If it says 0.3 you still have the old version.

What skins are you using on the model? do you have Normal and Spec maps for them? the issue most likely isn't the model.

You need to uncheck use nodes when you export the model. This is what JLV said to do in the original post. Follow his steps and it will fix it.

Too much specular. Read Atlas's post and then turn down your specular setting.

i unchecked use nodes but im confused on how to " use "metallic" to set the environment mapping alpha, "specular" to set the specular intensity, and "roughness" to set the specular exponent." sorry kinda new to this thanks for the help
