Hola all!

I have heard several references to pointing the content directory in LW to the "Monkey Directory" in order to make the motion paths work, etc.

Well color me stupid, but where IS that directory? I am running the latest 4.6 update, and I see no such animal. It is possible all my content wasn't installed orginally?

Here are a couple tips that might help. The content directory should be:
C:/VT4/LightWave/Content

Maybe you have already set that...
Ensure that LightWave has recognized your FX-Monkey plugins:
From Utilities Tab/
under "Plugins" select "Add Plugins"
Browse to, C:/VT4/LightWave/Programs/Plugins

There should be 3 files there
fx_monkey.ls
fxmonkey.lsc
FXMonkey.p

Highlight all three and select Open. That should have loaded the FX Monkey stuff for you . Now from "Plugins", "Additional" you should be able to choose FX Monkey.

On a good day that should be what works...

I hope that helps
