2D actors:

In actor definition you set a couple of spritesets (idle, talk, walk, turnright etc...)

  ANIMATION
  {
    NAME       = "idle"
   
    LEFT       = "actors\molly\ll\stand.sprite"
    RIGHT      = "actors\molly\rr\stand.sprite"
    UP         = "actors\molly\uu\stand.sprite"
    DOWN       = "actors\molly\dd\stand.sprite"

    UP_LEFT    = "actors\molly\ul\stand.sprite"
    UP_RIGHT   = "actors\molly\ur\stand.sprite"
    DOWN_LEFT  = "actors\molly\dl\stand.sprite"
    DOWN_RIGHT = "actors\molly\dr\stand.sprite"
  } 

By default the "idle" is used for idle animation. The variable in question allows you to override it by a different animation. This can be usefull for example if you want to randomly play different idle animations. So if you have eg. animation set called idle2, you can use:

actor.IdleAnimName = "idle2";

For 3D actors, the animations (and their names) should be defined in the .x file itself. In actor definition you will reference the animation set like this:


  ANIMATION
  {
    NAME="idle"
    LOOPING=TRUE
  }

The usage then is the same.

Hope this helped.

My file "*. actor", looks like this. This is not correct? So, I need to change it?

Code: [Select]
ACTOR
{
  NAME = "actor"
  CAPTION="My brand new actor"
  X = 100
  Y = 100
  SCALABLE = TRUE
  INTERACTIVE = FALSE
  COLORABLE=TRUE
  ROTATABLE = FALSE
  SOUND_PANNING=TRUE
  SCRIPT="actors\bivalov\bivalov.script"
 
  FONT = "fonts\Teslic1.font"

  WALK
  {
    SPRITESET
    {
      LEFT       = "actors\bivalov\ll\walk.sprite"
      RIGHT      = "actors\bivalov\rr\walk.sprite"
      UP         = "actors\bivalov\uu\walk.sprite"
      DOWN       = "actors\bivalov\dd\walk.sprite"

      UP_LEFT    = "actors\bivalov\ul\walk.sprite"
      UP_RIGHT   = "actors\bivalov\ur\walk.sprite"
      DOWN_LEFT  = "actors\bivalov\dl\walk.sprite"
      DOWN_RIGHT = "actors\bivalov\dr\walk.sprite"
    }
  }
 
  STAND
  {
    SPRITESET
    {
      LEFT       = "actors\bivalov\ll\stand.sprite"
      RIGHT      = "actors\bivalov\rr\stand.sprite"
      UP         = "actors\bivalov\uu\stand.sprite"
      DOWN       = "actors\bivalov\dd\stand.sprite"

      UP_LEFT    = "actors\bivalov\ul\stand.sprite"
      UP_RIGHT   = "actors\bivalov\ur\stand.sprite"
      DOWN_LEFT  = "actors\bivalov\dl\stand.sprite"
      DOWN_RIGHT = "actors\bivalov\dr\stand.sprite"
    }
  }
...

And then, something like that.

I modified the code for an actor and it worked. Everything is working. Thank you very much.
