Hi guys!

I use Vista. The FadeColor attribute doesn't seem to work in WindowEdit. When I change this attribute and save and close the window file, the change isn't there when I open the file again.   ::)

Technical forum / Problems export 3ds Max to X format
« on: February 14, 2007, 06:41:19 PM »
I've got a tricky question, but hopefully someone might help.

I created a low-poly model in 3DS Max and when I put textures onto it, I used different Map Channels for different areas of the mesh and differen UVW maps (sphere for the head, cylinders for body, arms and legs). When I convert this mesh to X, there is only one Map Channel and all textures are possitioned according to it's UVW coordinates, so the eyes, for inctance, are located on the neck, etc.

I tried to flatten the UVW and render to texture, but after flattening Max doesn't want to export in X, it just crashes (I'm using DirectX SDK). If I export to 3ds first, then the model receives all the seams and looks terrible, i.e. the mesh is distorted. Moreover, after saving this 3ds as X the model lays on its side, rather than standing on its legs.

Is there a way to export the model so that it looks the same way as in Max (correctly placed textures and correct position and no distortion to the mesh)

Thank you.

Sorry, but a last try...  :)

What if the L-path is created via two straight paths? In other words, when the player Left clicks, the game checks, whether Scene.MouseY equals to Actor's Y position. If it does, then actor.GoTo(Scene.MouseX, Scene.MouseY); if it doesn't than actor first goes to Scene.MouseY and from there goes to Scene.MouseX  ;D I think, this might be done within scene.script

What do you think?

Thanks! I see what you mean.

IMHO, this approach will make 2d artists' job more complicated, and the result won't be ideal...


Can't the waypoints be used to make sure the actor avoids blocked areas (with L-path)?

to allow the developer to define exactly which animation to use for each walking angle.
I don't quite understand what you meant...  :-\ Do you mean, there will be 360 directions instead of current 8? ??? If so, then there'll be huge number of sprites needed... Or is it something else?

When actor is made to go left or right and the position of the mouse click is slightly above or below actor's hot spot, he goes to the new point in a straight line. This looks unrealistic, since the actor's legs walk strickly right or left (as animated), but the actor also "floats" upwards/downwards.

My suggestion is to make the actor follow a so-called "L" shaped line in this case, so that if the position of Mouse click was slightly above/below the hotspot, actor firstly goes upwards/downwards (or in diagonal) until he's at the same horizontal level with the mouseclick point, and then goes right/left.

I've seen this approach in a game, made with "Point&Click Development Kit" Engine. This game, as an example, can be downloaded here: (8mb)

This approach, in my opinion, produces much more realistic results.  :)

I suppose it's completely random?
Looks like it.

No obvious causes, no disk activity in the background, virus scanners, Google desktop search,
Quite possible that something works in the backgound, I'll check.

Thank you, Mnemonic!
What I mean is when my actor walks (on the same scale) he sometimes walks slower, which looks like the fps getting lower for some time. However, the FPS is stable. This problem is only experienced in accelerated mode. May the both problems be a result of using ATI video card?

Just one more thing. I turned on Hardware acceleration in ProjetMan and SceneEdit, and now they open quite quickly (3-4 seconds), however, the setting windows still takes about 20-30 seconds to apear, which involves ProjectMan not responding.

And just one more thing I'd like to ask Mnemonik, which is not related to this problem, but still worries me. My actor sometimes walks slower sometimes faster, in other words with variable speed. Is it normal, or it's because my sprites are too big, or something else?

I think, it might be the problem of the scene editor, since I got wme_crash.txt saying:

---------- WME crash report: 16-03-2006, 21:22 ----------
SceneEdit.exe caused a EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in module SceneEdit.exe at 001B:0044F431

Stack trace:

Also when I open the scene editor it doesn't always appear on the Taskbar, moreover if I open a scene, and without changing anything try to close it, the Scene Editor asks whether I want to save changes  :o .

here is my wme.log just in case:

Nothing seems to help.  :'( :'(
But thank you, that you don't leave me one my own with this problem!  ;D

Well, might be... What is my action in this case?

Thank you.
