Textures all render as white

I’m using the Monklypse RCP plugin to encapsulate the JME in an eclipse RCP environment. I realize the project hasn’t been updated in quite some time but I was wondering if there was anyone still using it that can help me. I cannot seem to get any objects to load correctly from a file. I’ve tried both Obj and 3ds files. They both have the same problem. The geometry renders but it is completely white. It seems as though the materials are not being applied correctly. This is strange because JME finds and loads the materials.

Does anyone have any idea as to why this could be happening?

Monklypse is long abandoned I am afraid, I suggest you start using jME3 and jMonkeyPlatform, its close to beta and many people are using it successfully already.
