Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[Question] Replacing the Shooter Game Character

ok been trying for a while to replace the Shooter Game Character but no joy, i don't want to use the Characters rig as i find it to be very strange with the bone alignment of the spine bones !!!

so i decided to scale and import one of my own characters along with the UDK anims, after i spent the time re-creating the anim blueprint i found that my character warps out, any hints or tips on where i might have gone wrong would be most help.

alt text

i realise this might not be wanted, but i expect others will use the game as an example and get stuck

it looks like there is something not right with the FBX during creation or your choices during import. Look at the model that they supply for the tutorial. This is just from the looks of the image you posted. Maybe if you can put the model in the drop box or post your steps that you took to import ,setup...etc etc

My student made a Maya rigged version of the template character using The Setup Machine. I think it is 2013 version. Obviously it won't match with the internal rocket rig but it could be used for replacements.

i doubt that will be the answer but you never know, atm i've narrowed it down so that when i un-plug the additive node for the aimoffsets then the mesh plays the anims as normal.

i didn't know of a second hot fix so i'll have a look later

ok sorted, it was just some of the aimoffset anims properties that wasn't set, which i missed, you have to set them to additive

Animation Hotfix

GeoDav did you use the Beta6 Animation hotfixes/patches, the 1st one and the second one which restores the name signature?

What you are seeing looks alot to me like the pre-patched Beta6 animation problems I was having
