Yes we did, we made a skeleton like wiki and an animation. exported to DAE and imported in the mesh editor.

We used the tutorial character animations -> attack.set(cskel,"anim/test.anim");

We have a similar problem like this:

It has custom animations I rather think it's something else while exporting or importing. Seeing as it's exactly 90 degree and its the same in the mesh viewer. Is it possible to rotate everything in the viewer, code wise or while exporting or something ?

Well, maybe try this:

- load mesh and skel files
- in mesh mode use combnation of buttons ctrl+x or ctrl+y or ctrl+z to rotate your mesh (skeleton will rotate too)
- save both files

I don't think that's it. I did some more testing and it turned the Skeleton and Mesh are in the right position in Mesh Editor:
   

Its when we look at the animation that it all gets messed up:
   

And I noticed it's also varies in rotation and orientation of movement based on what direction the animation is made in max. In the screen shot I just quickly made an animation in max and moved it forward with some simple foot hands movement.

   

I noticed that during the animation in max my character moved on the line via X while in Mesh Editor he moved in a line down on Z axis if i'm not mistaken.


EDIT: Found an solution by using different exporter plugins and exporting it in X format.
