Where does Relink Bitmaps store my settings?
Your settings are saved in your
Relink Bitmaps.ini file here:
When I click my Relink Bitmaps icon nothing happens
This is usually because Relink Bitmaps remembers which monitor you had it one when you closed it last. To easily fix this open your
Relink Bitmaps.ini file and change x and y saved positions to 0.0
Alternatively you can delete your
Relink Bitmaps.ini file and it will be created with defaults.

How do I run Relink Bitmaps on a folder of max files?
If you want to batch Relink Bitmaps from the command line, or over a series of max files in a directory you’ll want to pair these instructions with Paule Neale’s excellent ‘Batch It Max’ script found here: http://paulneale.com/batch-it-max/
You’ll want to create a new maxscript file to run on each scene:
-- RelinkMyScene.ms file example -- Get the path to the Relink Bitmaps.mse file relinkBitmapsFile = (getDir #userscripts) + "\\Relink Bitmaps\\Relink Bitmaps.mse" -- Import the file and all the functions fileIn relinkBitmapsFile -- This will open Relink bitmaps which will load the necessary functions createDialog rlt_RelinkBitmaps 300 545 -- To search the folders 'C:\Textures' and 'D:\Maps\Scene1' for missing textures and all subfolders this is what you would run: sceneRelinkBitmaps #(@"C:\Textures", @"D:\Maps\Scene1") ignoreCase:true ignoreExtension:false recursive:true undoOn:false lowMemory:false allMaps:false -- Close the Relink Bitmaps window closeRelinkBitmapsDialogs()
Run this file using ‘Batch It Max’ over the folder of max files.
