Thats the scientist from jon ...im trying to retexture it but got a few problems. ( with the animations as well ).

anyone knows how to attach the normalmap to a dynamic entity ?
seems like this only works for static segments ?!

and of course , why is this model walking with its back to the player ?
if i wouldnt have set the fps to coward , the model would walk backwards and you would never see its face. anyone got this problem ?!

thanks

yeah...thats the ticket !

ok, use the rotatey in the fpi , to rotate the model 180 so it faces the player.

The normal map is a problem, I cant solve either, I just posted for help on the models forum, but...2 hours and no takers....

And a plug, go check out the new criminal underworld video at the criminal underworld post!!

Thanks , will check it out in a minute

So what problems do you have with normalmapping ?
on segments all works fine for me...but noch on characters or weapons.
dont know which fx file to use. i think bumpbone is the wrong ?!

yeah...thats the ticket !

I got it !!!

you have to open the fpe file and set the effect to
effectbank\bumpent\bumpent.fx

then open fpsc and right click the entity and attach the same under the effects tab.
usually it looks like theres always the bumpbone attached.
now , thats a pretty scientist face , eh ?

yeah...thats the ticket !

you need for example :

character_D2
character_N ( this is your normal map )
character_D

and i used additionally character_S ( specular map )

and i realised every time you start fpsc , ti changes the bumpent.fx back to bumpbone. thats bad. you just have to attach the bumpent.fx everytime you start fpsc again. in the editor. the fpe file doesnt change..luckily.

a new scientist ????? will have a look on that now

and of course heres another picture ...its still in progress...im just happy i got bumpmapping on entitys working

yeah...thats the ticket !

Thank you so much!!

hey btw there's a bump map converter here. Just import your TGA file and it makes a normal.

wow thanks a lot johnny
i think i will create 4 or 5 different characters made of the scientist model. mainly through out texturing. and okay...a bit modding if i ever get the new softimage xsi version

and of course...hows your corepak 2 going ?

ive seen the new zombie model and the fat zombie. will you create more zombie creature like models for this pak ? and some "good" meelee weapons...like a sledgehammer with hands ?!

i think of buying your modelpak 1 ..cause theres a hospital bed which really looks amazing...the bloody one

yeah...thats the ticket !

yeah the guns are great !!
i tested the file a few minutes ago...and tried to get it working. but still there are no zombie animations. then i copied the animation info from the zombiedoctor and the fpi but doesnt work either. i changed the aishoot, too. and of course the main fpi.

will try to get it right tomorrow. now gotta learn for exams

--- i love normalmaps !

yeah...thats the ticket !

I have thought about this and if you change the fpe in the fpsc folder it will not change.

yeah ! perfect jon. Clothing folds look very sweet ! i think because of the ability to use normal maps ...and generally shaders....in fpsc, its possible to create a commercial game.
Now, i got my new modelling program...and in the next week i will create and modify some models. More screenshots to come

yeah...thats the ticket !

Great. That zombie is little too big for my taste though.

yep, even Doom 3 was extremelly reliant on its normal maps (even though it says bumpmaps in settings, they arent)

and if you look at the HellKnight or pretty much any model in that game without normal maps, you'll see the difference

thats what alot of people on these forums are forgetting, they are complaining why the graphics isnt good enough and that shaders muck it up

Quote: "its just amazing what the use of shaders does to the usual textures. the modernday colt with specular highlights...i know this is nothin special...but i love it "


yep, thats my favourite when it comes to shaders, i love when the specular highlights just roll over the barrel
