  1. Alrighty, give this a try. I think that old file I linked you to was nothing worth your attention. It includes a before and an after. OX_Cart.zip
  2. Ah, would you mind exporting the ox cart as a .obj file and then zipping it up with a texture? I'll just use that for a template for you.
  3. The later is a great model. The first... hmm maybe this is not the file I thought it was. I'll need to open up Max and check that file out.
  4. Always glad to help when I can - consulting is the easy part. You guys are doing the hard work these days, developing! It is amazing to see the vision I and a few other founders set for the project 13 years ago still in motion. So thank you Erik, and everyone else who has picked up where others have left off - successfully passing the torch.
  5. I have a sneaky suspicion that something there is hidden geometry. Right click and unhide all. Then delete anything else that isn't reliant. The only thing you really want is the chariot body and the left and right wheels for geometry. There is also going to be some helper objects that define "prop points". I'm not sure if you are familiar with those or not. You'll need to keep those, and keep whatever the bone structure is - I forget if it was a bone, or a box, or a helper (Its been close to a decade since I made that file ). If you should post a screenshot of your screen and maybe a sc
  6. Yeah, it doesn't like your skeleton. It looks like the big skeleton file has been split up into separate files and now lives here: http://trac.wildfiregames.com/browser/ps/trunk/binaries/data/mods/public/art/skeletons/chariot.xml The engine doesn't like your model because the skeleton doesn't match the model. Which could be because the bones aren't named correctly in Max. Check the object names. It could also be plain missing... When you export the .dae actively select the objects (meshes, bones, helpers, etc) you want to exported and try "export selected" vs. just "export" which will do t
  7. Ok cool it worked The missing .dle file could be found here: The bip and graphic files live in the art repository - but you don't need those. You could get some of these from the game's texture folder. which lives here: ps/trunk/binaries/data/mods/public/art/textures (it should like this - if you have access - http://trac.wildfiregames.com/browser/ps/trunk/binaries/data/mods/public/art/textures ) (BTW, as your learning, document it here: trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/ArtDesignDocument) Check out the simple bone structure in the file and the modifiers to get a feel for it. Like I say, try exp
  8. Might be good to document this on the wiki rather than the forum too? Keep up the good work agentx
  9. Before Blender became so prevalent, 3DS Max was the tool that exported the majority of models and animations until around 2006-2007. It should still be possible, in fact many original .max file are available in the artist's SVN repository if you would like to view those. It sounds like you need general information of how to do rigging, not specifically how to get 3ds models and animations into the game? There are numerous resources for the former, and I'm one of the few resources for the later. So if you ask me specific questions I'll do my best to answer them. I'll subscribe to this threa
  10. Aye, when animations were created... units were not supposed to destroy buildings. Instead they would capture them.
  11. Nice work, animals are tricky. I'd love to see a run animation too. (in case run and stamina are ever reimplemented into the game)
  12. Could you describe your specific problems? Maybe I could be of assistance.
  13. Sounds very interesting - I'm looking forward towards hearing more about the progress you make, and one day - testing it out! Screenshots would be fun to share too
  14. IMHO the crenellations look odd in general, chunky/blocky and cartoony. What was the inspiration? Was it sources like this? http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/fortresses.htm Maybe if the scale was smaller it would look better?
  15. I agree - and nice work Tomas, looks fantastic. It would be neat to see a battle horse in the scene as well
  16. The actor probably just needs to be tweaked. There is an animation that exists for cavalry spearman. http://trac.wildfiregames.com/browser/ps/trunk/binaries/data/mods/public/art/animation/cavalry/spear/attack
  17. I tried this morning to find the name of the former ES employee that offered to be a sounding board for AI related ideas/issues that 0 A.D. was coming into but I can't seem to find him. It might have been Pottinger or Pritchard, but I can't remember... But, I did come across this while doing old searches on the forums. Probably isn't anything you guys don't already know about though... http://wildfiregames.com/users/code/resources/divisions/Graphics/Resources/terrainanalysis.zip
  18. It is a starwars font, I could dig it up if you really have to know - but it would take me a bit of time.
  19. I love the tweaks for the aircraft, did this get incorporated? Would be great for http://www.moddb.com/games/rogue-republic I'd hate to see pyrogenesis loose this developer.
  20. Fun facts - the pyrogenesis "logo" was a single character from a font. It was intended to be similar in look to the Chinese wildfire games character. I think the name was selected by a team vote at the time when we were using greek to name certain aspects of the game - like Atlas and Odysseus. It's prior name was prometheus, which we found out later was already used. I think before that it was briefly called omicron. "New Fire" was what it was supposed to mean, loosely following the wildfire moniker. I think the attached file is the original .max file for the 0 A.D. logo (guessing based o
  21. Have you guys reviewed wfg's data? http://www.wildfireg...showtopic=13784 http://www.wildfireg...showtopic=15089 Making reports like this: http://feedback.wild.../report/opengl/ http://feedback.wild...ic/cpucaps.html http://zaynar.co.uk/0ad-pub/performance-20100306.png http://zaynar.co.uk/0ad-pub/ram-20110401.png Like wraitii suggested - hard data is the way to go. It will help you make the call one way or the other and you'll have the data to back up the decision. Also worth a read: http://www.wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=14419&pid=217338&st=0entry217338
  22. Have any screenshots? For fun and old time's sake
  23. It also was intended to protect your domestic animals from being immediately stolen and taken away by the enemy.
