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:

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

Have fun, Finn
