For the last few weeks I've been searching for a program to convert LWO to OBJ or FBX. I decided to do a little snooping in the Treadmarks game files and found that a lot of the models are in .lwo formats. Then remembering that there are people who (used to) actively edit and add new tanks and whatnot must have had some kind of program they used to easily make lwo files. The only reliable program I've found is and it does Not work at converting lwo to obj or fbx as it says it does.

I need a program that can successfully convert lwo to obj or fbx, with or without a texture (as I can add that later).

Any knowledge would be appreciated.

LWO files are object files from a old 3d application called Lightwave. If you google lightwave object file converter, i'm sure you will find some free tools. I believe blender handles them as well.
