PVRGeoPOD plugin for 3ds Max 2020 is missing from PVR Tools 2019_R1


It says in the release notes here that:

PVRGeoPOD v2.25

Added support for Blender 2.80
Added support for 3ds Max 2020

…except there’s no 2020 folder:

I tried copying the “PVRGeoPOD.dle” file from the 2019 folder to “C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2020\Plugins” and it says I have the wrong igame version.

I also tried downloading the “offline” installer (2.4 GB), thinking maybe it was included there, but the download failed 3 times now, each time when reaching 1.00 GB. Your server must not be configured correctly or something.

Could you please attach an updated .dle file?

PS: I remember asking you guys two years ago for 3ds Max 2017 SP3 and you were so nice. Carlos?

Oh, and one more thing, if I update 3ds Max to 2020.1 will the plugin for 2020 still work? Did they change the igame?


Sorry about this. We forgot to pack it in our 2019 R1 release. We will do a respin shortly and I will make sure it is there. I am attaching it here. Uploading:…
Let me know if it works for you.

Brest regards.


Did not work. Let me try again (1.7 MB)

Thank you!
I can confirm that it’s working with both 2020 and 2020.1.

Have a wonderful day!
