comment How can I convert .X files from text to binary form?
Sorry I didn't reply: I have been away. I am exporting from Blender. I'm importing using Irrlicht, so I'm not writing either the exporter or importer. The model I am loading was extremely high poly (around 20,000) so perhaps that was the problem. @PatrickB thanks for the info on binary -- doesn't sound helpful then (if you post that as an answer I'll tick it). In the end, I gave up on .x and I'm using the B3D format instead -- it's much simpler but suits my needs. I can load the same very-high-poly model in a fraction of a second.
