Here's a simple little question for my first post.

When you save your backdrop files, what is the suffix that you should add to your filename?

Would just like my Mac to recognise the file type, instead of having to manually choose "All documents" to select my backdrop file.

Well thats no boring question, thats an interesting question. Its annoying when LW looses its path to all pictures and texturemaps and you have to choose them all manually when you open a file, and clicking on "all documents" first too. So i like to hear the hopefully simple answer too.

It's ".cfg"

If you ever have any more questions like this, a simple way to check is to open the 'LightWave Modeler 3 Prefs' fie in something like Simple Text and check the settings.
