WME book online
« on: January 02, 2013, 10:02:23 PM »


Hello,

I've discovered Wintermute engine last week, That's a really interesting job ! I'm interested to create games with this engine.

So I've downloaded the 1.10.1 version and learn to use it with the WME book online...

But, will you complete the book ? there is no revision since 2008...
Does it exists a complete PDF version I can dowlnoad ?

Also : I've tried to place and use the 3d character "Trinity" in a 2d scene but the character stays invisible...

thanks for your help !

The scenes
Unlike the ordinary 2D scenes, you will need to add an extra layer to your scenes to support hosting 3D characters in them. This layer is called the "hidden scene geometry". Basically it's a simple 3D model which defines the 3D layout of your scene. It defines the walk-planes and blocked objects. Although this 3D model is never actually visible to the player, the 3D characters are using it to navigate the scene. They are walking on invisible 3D planes and they avoid hidden blocked objects.

Once again, this hidden geometry has to be created in some 3D modeling software and then saved in the 3DS format. 3DS is the only format WME accepts as scene geometry. This format is very popular and you should be able to export is from most 3D packages.


The hidden geometry file contains the following components:

Walk-planes
Blocked objects
Waypoints
Lights
Cameras
Other objects for shadow casting purposes

thank you ciberspace for your answer ! I have to try that.

...what about online book ? I hope it will be completed, it's so easier to learn step by step how to use a SDK...!

EDIT : I've made a basic 3d scene in 3dsmax with camera (Camera01), collisions (walk_floor, blk_house) and waypoints (wpt_01, wpt_02, wpt_03).
I've placed actor "Trinity" on the scene. All looks ok in scene editor, trinity is there, so I save.
I launch the game. Unfortunaly, tere is no actor, and a message "script runtime error, see log". But there is no messages in log.

any idea...?

Thank you

So : I put Trinity in my scene, but WME is looking for Molly !  :(

Here is what I've done:
-> I've removed Molly out of my project, 
-> in the scene editor : actor > load actor > trinity > trinity.act3d
and then, I've placed actor.

But please have a look at the the log :

Oh, another problem to solve...waypoints are present in my scene (called wpt_01, wpt_02, wpt_03 in 3dsmax).
Scene editor seems reconize them, there are crosses on the scene to symbolise them.
But when I launch the game and click on the scene to make move trinity, well, she don't walk...

Is there a script to write ?
