Step 1 - Import your own .dff  in 3ds using Kam's script or just import your model in another format,run dexx tool from your 3ds window and set the options like in pic(for standart neons)

Step 2 - Create some omni lights in the order of lights font and assign them a colour like in pic

Step 3 -  When u placed all the omni lights on your side clone them to the other side to have the neons on both sides like this

Step 4 - When you finished  select all the omni lights and go in the dexx tool script menu and click Add Light Info (Light), then edit your lights options and click on Apply to Lights at the end click on Export Info.It will ask you to save a file that includes the lights options

Step 5 - Now open RW Analyze and import your .dff clicking on File;Open,then close the frame list list like in pic

Step 6 - Open the geometry list and check the first geometry line and go in his extension menu
