[TresEd] When turned on and off, it's ok. But when I load any level my or trespasser and I click on Quit it will crash every time. but I dont think it will have some bad effect.

You have to be very careful, then, especially if you save around the time that you exit. If TresEd crashes while you're saving, your level will be broken. You should also be careful that you don't "Save and Exit" in that case.

[Help] Please how can I insert my the terrain to the level for which we used our own material and we created in 3dsMax7.

You don't need materials on your terrain in Max when importing to Trespasser, as they won't display. As I said before, Trespasser uses TrnObjs in the level itself to determine where the textures go.

The "Negative data value found" error indicates that, again, there is a vertex of the terrain which is below a height of 0. You CANNOT have any part of the mesh below 0 height.

Ok :) I have already understood how texture is placed on the ground by TrnObjs, it looks very handy. But how to insert TrnObj into the level? create in3ds and using GeomAdd? and how to texture the individual TrnObj? Do I have to texture in 3ds max?

So my video tutorials explain the basics here... But beyond that, some basic points.
-A typical small trnobj for placing around a map is a simple square with a single texture on it, fit to the edges of the square
-Easiest way to make a new small trnobj is to export one from a retail level's basement (the area off-map which contains organized base models - press "P" in TresEd to show obj locations as red/green dots), then give it a new texture by naming the new texture to the name of the original or opening the TPM file in Notepad and editing the material text
-When making a new (typically 256x256) terrain texture, just make sure it has the same palette as the other trnobjs; this can be accomplished using "Wally Palette Editor" in "Trespasser Twilight" (see sig link)
-Larger trnobjs, such as the light brown dirt/leaf-looking rounded "cover" trnobj in retail JR, use repeated tiling textures and cover more area with fewer objects
-The largest trnobjs are used for the bottom-level ('base') and might be giant squares, hexagons, specially-designed shapes, etc.
-Pay attention to "SoundMaterial" - a trnobj has a soundmaterial-area equivalent to its maximum rectangular dimensions based on the location of the pivot relative to the mesh; if you're not careful a large, unusual-shaped trnobj may cover an area with its sound where its texture is not present, causing one to scratch one's head for a bit

Hope that helps -
