3D game tutorials
« on: October 06, 2005, 10:29:19 PM »

Anyone got em'? i really want a tutorial on how to create 3D games using WME.
i have been designing a game for a year and want to start making it, but then i though 'i don't know HOW to create 3D games'

So...anyone know where there's a tutorial?

Hi,
are you talking of 3d characters or complete 3d games? Maybe you misunderstood something then, because WME *is* a 2d engine, but you can use real 3d characters. But only characters, not full 3d rooms like in some ego shooter, etc.

That are no weird lines, that is the hidden scene geometry as stated in the documentation. The important information on how to create games like that are in the chapter named "3d characters support".

Yes, you need the hidden geometry (walking areas, waypoints and blocked areas) for the characters to navigate properly in the 2d scenes.
