    User Feedback

    Sadly, the links and videos to this tutorial are lost to the ages. I've searched the web for these, but all other links to these elsewhere lead to spammy adult naughty sites. Kinda sad, because these tutorials would be an excellent jumping off point for new BATters...

    I fixed the videos. They should play now. ;)

    We're looking for the gmax model that was made in this video series. Has anyone downloaded it before and would be willing to share it with us? We would really appreciate it! Thanks! :|
