Hmmm, as long as you got everything, you should be able to create the
octree. How are you unpacking these files you got from Greg? Reason
I ask is that Greg sent me that very same monitor model and I was
able to work with it, but when I first tried to use it I got errors
working on Windows. There are linefeed issues that can create some
problems here, and I suspect that's your problem. I'd send you a
frozen octree, but I can't seem to find the source files here on my
laptop -- must all be at work (looks like I'm getting my priorities
straight). If you like, I can build a frozen octree tomorrow and
mail it to ya, and we can go from there.
