gMax Contact Points helper Beta 0.1

Basically this allows you to use gMax to visually set your contact points (not just position but also gear compression, etc), static height/pitch, etc and then copy and paste the data to your aircraft.cfg file.
Here's the beta script. I was hoping to polish it a little more before release but I'm not going to get a chance to work on it until next week so....[b]READ THE README.TXT FILE BEFORE USING![/b]...as the script doesn't have much in the way of error trapping and the like:
Zipped gMax Contact Points helper Beta 0.1 (~5K)
I've also recorded a video which talks through the whole process using the sample P47 gMax model. It's not really very polished, but I only did it in one 'take' as it's only for the beta one after all!

You'll also need the camtasia codec which you can get from
if you don't have it already.
Have fun, Finn
