Testing MaxScript

The newer Maproom releases also come with a built in test system. This is my attempt to use some sort of test driven development approach in 3dsMax. Having these tests will certainly help me releasing a more stable Maproom while keeping adding new features.

Download the a Maproom release with tests here testable maproom release. Get the latest mzp-file labeled with TEST in the filename.

Test instructions

If you’ve just downloaded the mzp-file, install it first (Installation). To run the tests, go to the Maproom installation folder. That’s something like this: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\[3ds max version]\ENU\scripts\KlaasTools\Maproom\scriptfiles\tests. In that folder there’s a file called Test_root.mse. Drag and drop this file into a 3dsMax viewport.

While the tests are running, info is being printed out to the maxscript listener (press F11 to open it). Copy and paste this info into a text file and send it to mail@klaasnienhuis.nl.

Manual check

The tests (should) also create some images in your user folder. They should be about here: C:\Users\[username]\Documents\3dsMax\Maproom_Test_MXS. Please zip that entire folder and send it over too.
