3dsMax 3.1 language

3dsMax 3.1 language

Just got ver. 3.1 off ebay for a steal, but I didn't get a manual.. Does anyone know how, of it's even possible to make the menu's appear in english. Evidently I have the german version but I don't speak a word of it so I have no idea what they mean. My guess is there's an option somewhere in the setup or UI menu but I don't have an english overlay.

I do have a little tip for ya's-
  I know Max has a problem importing/exporting certain types of files. Recently I was turned on to 'Milkshape' which has alot more import/export options. I use it primarily for importing *.nif files into Max. Use milkshape to import the *.nif, then export it to max, or autocad. Works good but has a problem with complex models and some light maps.
      Hope this helps someone.

RE: 3dsMax 3.1 language

Greetings all:

Recently I purchased a used copy of 3D Studio Max 3.1 just so I can mod BC. The program is ancient (7 years old?) and unfortunatelly Discreet (Kinetix) no longer supports it. My problem is the menu's are in German and I don't speak the language. I've traced the menu tab labels back to the *.cui files in the main menu of the program and I'm begging for someone to e-mail me those files from their English version. I count about 4 of them (*.UI and *.CUI) and combined they total about 100K. If you can help me, please PM me as Discreet won't help me and I don't have the resources or the knowledge of the German language to translate the tab label files.
