*It is best to install to the Root Directory of the Drive that you have Maya installed to*


Converting Maya Files:
It is best to convert all the maya files before using Ninja City.
This will save all the maya files to your version of maya
It will also repath all the texture paths to the location you have installed Ninja City to

Under the Convert Menu run Convert Maya Files
Run the Convert All

All Modules have been edited with 2011.  If you are using a version of Maya before 2011 you will have to run the convert RR files under the help menu.  This has been tested on 2010 and works.  The convert will repath all the texture calls and save the maya file to the same version of maya that you have run it on.


Why pay $35? 
1. You get unlimited downloads / upgrades.  You can download updates through your dashboard in the purchases tab. 
2. I will be adding new features on a regular basis  and bug fixing. (I am very open to feature requests)
3. I will give prompt tech support.
4. This script is a big time saver.
5. It goes to a good cause.. All sales will go to my son's college fund.

Tips:
1. close UV Editor
1. close Mel Window
