Importing Direct X (*.x) files

So I’m trying to open and view a .X file.

I’ve found the stock DirectX import/export plugin in user preferences and activated but the *.x file format does not appear in the import file drop-down menu.

What gives?

There is no import, like the plugin says, it’s an .x exporter:

Use Milkshape to import and convert DirectX files to Blender.

Thank you, using Milkshape to open the files then save them as *.obj did the trick
