[COLOR=Black]Hello, I'm Lasha, I've been looking arround the forums and ,well, this is my first post. I'm a good skinner (I say because i was asking if someone need a skinner on some project,, I'm always up to help heh) Well, anyway. I have a terrible doubt. :p For long time, I've been trying to make new animations (stances, etc) and effects (like force effects , lightning, grip.. etc) and well scripts (not simple ones, something like the Naruto Scripts and Elemental scripts.. you know, with effects and all that). BUt no mather how much I try, it's always the same. I just got an idea and then!!... I paralize, haha because I don't know how to do anything of the things i mentioned... Only skinning... and weapon moddeling. So I was asking, if someone could tell me how to do these stuff. I mean, scripts like the Elements one, and the Force effects... The animation don't because I tryed it too much and I get upset haha I don't understand Dragon. Anyway, I've been looking the tutorials but really or is hard or I'm stupid, because I don't know wich tools use and HOW TO USE THEM hehe...
Well I hope someone can help me out, with steps to follow or I don't know ha. Just please tell me if you think you could help me and well... Thanks.
Well first welcome to the forums and this should help after making them http://forums.filefront.com/sw-jk3-modding-mapping-editing/383156-getting-animations-game-tutorial.html
For making them i cant help even though i make them.
well, dragon may take some getting used to, but its worth it... and afteru do an animation or 2 its easy.. the .efx files, can be easily changed.. u can either replace the existing ones, or go into animevents and add them there... the scripting may take a little more tutorials and time to get, but that as well is worth it.. lets take it one step at a time though, whats the first effect u want to change? u said lightning... which u can change around in effectsED (giving that you have the directory setup properly) then just save it, and replace the .efx file in the assets1.pk3. with grip, i beleive its more hardcoded into the game as drain_hand (i could be wrong), but you can still totally change it in animevents... if you want, i can help u 1 effect or 1animation at a time and show u how to compile them and get them working. animations are my favorite, i do a little modeling, some mapping, some textures, uvmapping, efx files, etc... but i like animating the best. the tutorials on this site are killer.. they should help u get your feet wet.. and welcome to the forums
You could always try applying for JKG for skinning position if you have good work to show.
Oh thanks really. And well ChalklYne, alright, hehe well I just mm want to make not new animation for the lightning, just like in place of "rays" I would love to put some "animal" forms, like an Owl in withe color. Like coming out from the player, like an spiritual effect... that is all, and you dont have to waste your time I mean I'm not like "Oh can someone do this work for me?"(giving work to people, I'm not lazy i think) I like to learn things hehe, so please with only giving me indication on how to do it i think making 2 or 3 like that i'll get it hehe. I dont want to bother you.
And Pande that is a good idea thank you, I'll check that out. :nodding:
cool, i was just sayin i know it all can be a lil overwhelming if u dont take it 1 thing at a time... heres a good reference of where to start with the owls thing... lightning_crows, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Mini-Mods
id download that and take a look at how he did that.....i beleive he madebat md3's and made effectED drawthem as an emitter... but i could b wrong.. im leanin more towards bein right tho on this 1 XD id add a shader to the owls to make them maybe a bit bloomy looking u know? a lil light and some transparency on them might look kinda kool..
Lightning crows? Oh nice i always look for new effects on JK3files... and that just hidde from me haha. Well I just want something like ONE owl.. not many and with glows... like sparks... Like a fairy dust. hehe, thanks realy. I dont understand what u said about md3 and all that XD haha... Just if i see how u do it (i mean, how, steps etc...) I will just copy your work and well using the same metodology (if it's the correct word) for work on my ideas =p
md3s are files the game uses to read structural files Blender is a good free modeler blender.org - Home
It comes with how to make a penguin so it should help
Md3 exporter http://johnny3d.promail.ca/blendermd3.zip
Look around the installation folder to find where to put it
PS metodology is the right word
Heeeeeeeeeeeey there Lasha, it's Ray! Get on Skype, we're doing a contest later on today.
hmm weapon modelling eh?
