Free entities order
« on: February 05, 2008, 06:37:44 AM »

How to say to WME which free entity must be drawn first? I have 2 free entities in my scene: the bed and the luggage on it. 3D-actor will open the luggage. The entity "luggage" has animated sprite. Here is screenshot from SceneEdit.
And how to set correctly hotspot to make actor's hands is drawn in front of the bed when the actor is openning the luggage?

Hello Dionysius,

maybe I can help you with the hot spot. In my scene with the fountain I use the piece of fountain as free entity and the hotspot is a region entity. So I have the cursor only at the fountain. On my screenshot you can see it perhaps better.



I would make appropriate region entities. Hope it helps a little bit.

hotspot greets,

Simply put, free entities/actors are sorted by their Y position (as long as they stand in the same region).

Mnemonic, the bed has hotspot{268, 321} and the luggage {73, 321}. I tried to change luggage's hotspot to {73, 323}, but  all thesame the luggage is closed by the bed. What's wrong?
So, I guess, I need to use region entity to solve this issue.

I don't know what's wrong. Are they in the same region?

Yes, they are. The scene has no any region entities.
