While this is an old post, this post was brought to my attention yesterday on IRC. If it was bought to my attention earlier then not sure why I didn't reply, perhaps I did?

Anyway, certainly BG is a fantastic program and is mentioned a fair bit over on BB [example from ~2015], your name and the program's name appear in the release thread here:

and will appear in Help->About in the new version.

The original BB v1 was designed to look like BG (and on purpose too as like we have said over there many times it's a great program).

BB v1's F3dex interpreter and importer is based on source from Glide, Jario, (not sure if that was the domain name though?) and def snippets from BG, I also remember messaging xDan on the core about a few things when I started the model importer, but in general BB doesn't use direct source from any of those (though I do remember your VTX implementation) as it has expanded into animation and animation importing etc but certainly spring boarded my knowledge.

I wish this came to me over at BB and didn't take a year to get resolved.

BTW does BG do DK64 models?

I have written a setup viewer for DK here:

Happy to give the model file info if required
