Title: Issue 57: FX recolouring
Post by: Jimaras8 on October 22, 2013, 01:13:44 PM
I was wondering what ultimate meshes has the community created. Anything you have or can find if you of course have the time. Thor, Cap, and any x-man you can find should be a start. Fell free to add any other that ctosses your mind.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 23, 2013, 02:55:09 PM
Bear with me people. I know i am in rampage today throwing requests but my internet contract is expiring and i will be moving out soon so i need to wrap things quickly. Thx to dm, CB, Pod, AA and everyone else for their links and info. A more general field i am looking meshes for is marvel's powerhouses. I already have Sentry, Gladiator, Quasar, Thor, Hulk, Nova, Hyperion and Galactus Heralds. I am looking for similar type of heroes aka really durable and incredible powerful cosmic or not beings on equal lvl to those i stated above. Celestials and Galactus are off the table since i am not really fond of making them now. Feel free to add ideas and if possible the mesh, if there is one, to the characters you mention.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 23, 2013, 05:25:23 PM
Well spyder i am looking for strong not invincible  :P. Hyperion or Thor-like strong. Someting really tough but defeatable. I used some characters above as starting point.
Title: Re: Part III: Powerhouses and marvel heavy hitters.
Post by: Randomdays on October 23, 2013, 09:21:06 PM
Hercules, Orca (if you include villians), Namor, the Thing, She Hulk, Doc Samson, off the top of my head.

Edit - Powerman, Wonderman and Juggernaut
Title: Re: Part III: Powerhouses and marvel heavy hitters.
Post by: Cyber Burn on October 23, 2013, 11:32:55 PM
Personally, if it was me in this position, I would just go to Tommyboy's website and download everything. He has an extremely wide variety of characters, many of whom could fall under the category of "Powerhouse" or "Heavy Hitter". But I find that I tend to use his stuff a lot anyway.
Title: Re: Part III: Powerhouses and marvel heavy hitters.
Post by: Jimaras8 on October 24, 2013, 07:26:27 AM
Randomdays, hm interesting suggestions. I don't even know how Orca is, i will have to do my research. I have already done the others except Juggernaut. Any good mesh around here for Marko?

CB, way ahead of you pal  :D. I already have but i've made most of the guys around there.

Well if any idea comes up throw it here. I have hit a roadblock some days now so i need your help big time.
Title: Re: Part III: Powerhouses and marvel heavy hitters.
Post by: Randomdays on October 24, 2013, 08:51:47 AM
Orka - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orka_%28comics%29 . Orka tvlight by Tommyboy. 3 skins - standard, one by Blobula and one by Vigilante

Juggernaut here  - http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Freedomforcemesh4/files  . It's the only one I  know of plus I have 2 alternate skins of him - One with no readme and one by C6.

Not sure of their strengths, but if you add in bad guys, maybe Fin Fang Foom, Mad Thinker's robot, the Abomination, the Evil Reed Richards from Counter Earth (Brute), Absorbing Man and the Super Adaptoid. Tons of others I'm sure.

Title: Re: Part IV: Skrulls and Brood!
Post by: Jimaras8 on October 24, 2013, 09:55:47 AM
Grabbed Orka rd, thx for th tip. Any skrull meshes out there armed or unarmed? Also i saw a brood hero file at usagent so there has to be a brood mesh somewhere. Oh and last one, Randomdays i am pretty sure i have seen somewhere a Juggernaut mesh by Gren. Do you know anything about it?
Title: Re: Part IV: Skrulls and Brood!
Post by: Randomdays on October 24, 2013, 10:58:40 AM
I didn't see it on my disks.

Copper did a ton of different skrulls. In one of his yahoo groups I think.

Skrull Meshes: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Renegades_Toybox_Part_2/

Brute (Evil Reed Richards): http://blobula.webs.com/

Brood (Look for "Brood_V2", there is no preview pic): http://heroforce.freedomforceforever.com/ink.html

Abomination: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/Valandarmeshes1/
                      http://tommyboymeshes.freedomforceforever.com/marvel%20meshes%20A.html

Juggernaut: Besides the original mesh, there were two made by Grenadier, I don't have the groups handy right now, but if you don't have them by tonight, I will try to send them to you. He has a "Male_Hulking_Juggernaut" and a "MHV_Juggernaut_Gren".

Dark Hulk, Red Hulk, plus many more: http://freedomforceuniverse.com/marvel-comics.html

Title: Re: Part IV: Skrulls and Brood!
Post by: hoss20 on October 24, 2013, 06:25:01 PM
I made an Abomination skope, complete with an awesome C6 skin, here: http://forceofparadox.yolasite.com/hoss20.php

Gren's Male_Hulking_Juggernaut is here: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Grenadiermeshes7/files
(His Male_Hulking_Abomination is also there)

The MHV_Juggernaut is here: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Grenadiermeshes14/files

The C6 skin that I was able to use for my skope was transplanted from a hex that C6 did of Gren's Abomination mesh: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/C6_Unhosted_Skins/files

Also, if you don't already have him; don't forget that AA did an awesome Super Skrull skin for, I believe, a Johnny Patches skope here: http://heroforce.freedomforceforever.com/afghanant.html
Title: Re: Part IV: Skrulls and Brood!
Post by: Jimaras8 on October 24, 2013, 06:38:49 PM
CB thx for the links, yuo saved me much time, thx a lot.

Hoss, i have every single marvel mesh from AA. I love the guy's work. I was looking for skrull soldiers mainly and Renegade's ones seem reaaly good. Oh, i totally forgot i saw the Abomination in Force of paradox, i just couldn't remember if ti was your work or LP's. I will grab it immediately.

I know i am not supposed to do throw it in this thread but does anyone has any Imperial Guard hero files except the ones by Usagent or Atarak? Yeah off-topic but i am going off the grid for a couple of days and i want to grab any info to work with the days without Internet  :P
Title: Re: Part V: Ghost and Rocket Racer!
Post by: Jimaras8 on November 03, 2013, 01:11:21 PM
I am looking for marvel's Ghost and Rocket Racer. Though meshes i suppose so here are some reference pics :http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-972119 (http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-972119)  http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-1191873 (http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-1191873). If it is any help usagent uses male_basic_cape_pointed_hood for ghost but i don't have it.

P.S I was also wondering if someone had made zabu, the sabretooth of Ka-zar.
Title: Re: Part V: Ghost and Rocket Racer!
Post by: Randomdays on November 03, 2013, 01:52:07 PM
If no one gets it for you, when I get home I can send what I have.

Ghost - mesh by Johnny Patches, skin by Blobula

Zabu - bigcat _versatile_sabretooth hex and skin by Zuludelta

Don't think I have a Rocket Racer

Title: Re: Part V: Ghost and Rocket Racer!
Post by: Jimaras8 on November 03, 2013, 02:16:58 PM
RandomDays i would gladly accept what you got. My mail is jmjimvas08@gmail.com. Thx a lot man  :D. Also i have benn looking around at detourne's skopes and in his kraven skope he mentioned puting together Beyonder's kraven with Gren's Zaran. Well i have Zaran but 6 BYD groups later i can't find his Kraven. Maybe Detrourne can calrify it. I f i have BYD's kraven and Gren's Zaran detourne's character and keyframes.nifs are unecessary?

P.S I just grabed tommy's speedball pack, are there other speedball meshes out there?
Title: Re: Part V: Ghost and Rocket Racer!
Post by: hoss20 on November 03, 2013, 06:40:45 PM
You don't even really need the other two meshes. I had forgotten that a skin was not included with DM's Kraven skope. The best skin to use for simplicity's sake, and it also happens to be awesome, is from C6. It can be found here: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Champions_of_Freedom_3/files/

It also includes Beyonder's male_basic_furcoat which is, in essence, a Kraven mesh. Just place the skins folder which includes a standard skin into the dm_Kraven folder. Now, since you have the Zaran mesh; grab the extras, extras_refl, and extras_glow art file from the skin folder and put them into the standard skin folder for dm_Kraven. C6's skin will fit DM's skope and the extras files from Zaran are needed for the weapons.

I hope this helps and wasn't too confusing.

. Every response is helpful even the most confusing ones  :D. If i understand correctly the extras should NOT be put in the skin's folder along with the tga or dds files but to the general skin folder. Let's say i have my character and kf nifs and above them a skin folder. Inside this folder lies another folder that contains C6 skin. So the extras should be placed to the general skin folder am i correct?

P.S i grabbed CB's rocket racer skope but it lacks the skin. Any ideas where it is? If there are other Rocket Racer meshes out there pls give any hint as i always prefer two or more meshes for variety.

Post by: Cyber Burn on November 03, 2013, 07:08:21 PM
To my knowledge, Rocket Racer has never been skinned. I had skoped it, but didn't have a skinner lined up for it, so all it has is a wiremap.

As to DM's Kraven skope, the art files, I believe, will go into the "Standard" skin folder.

Title: Re: Part V: Ghost and Rocket Racer!
Post by: hoss20 on November 03, 2013, 11:01:55 PM
As to DM's Kraven skope, the art files, I believe, will go into the "Standard" skin folder.

Thanks for clarifying, Cyber. With the folder names having such generic names, I should have capitalized the "S" in Standard folder. That is where all of the art files go (male_basic.tga, extras.tga, and so on).

dm_Kraven (folder)
       |
        --> character.nif
              keyframes.kf
              Skins (folder)

                                               male_basic_lightmap.tga  \     (art files)

Oh, i get it now hoss. Standard folder it is then :D. Sorry for giving you trouble. So as far as RR goes USAgent has a hero file in his pack for the character so i suspect that there is a mesh out there  but i guess it's tough to find. If anyone has a clue it would be really appreciated. Randomdays, thx for the meshes man i will grab them iimediately.

A Arnie said many years ago, I' ll back!!!!

Edit: Um Random, in my e-mail i only saw zabu and a ghost pic :huh: :huh: :huh:, not a ghost mesh.

Grim and the Ghost were right next to each other in the directory. I think the Ghost snuck away and Grim took his place.

There's a Hobgoblin on Tommyboy's site. The only other Carnage I see is Johnny Patches that was at Champions.

Jim, do you have the megalist? I see both of the above on the list. If you don't have it, I can send it your way.

Links to over 3000 meshes and skins. Some of the links are down by now of course, but the yahoo groups are still good, plus has Tommyboy and Alex's sites as well as some others still up and functional. Still extremely useful, as well as this site (also a bit outdated) http://frworld.wikispaces.com/Mesh+List+Index

These two, as well as members here, are your best bet for finding what you need.

Sending it your way. It's an xls file by the way.

I would like to ask hoss and CB if the spear that Kraven holds is supposed to be white? I think in Gren's Zaran the spear is brown and when i used CB hand batch one hand ninja was holding a brown spear. The one that Kraven holds is all white. Is it normal? I placed the two extras in the standrard folder and used C6 skin. All according to plan.

EDIT: Hoss provided the fixed skin so the spear is back to brown. problem solved guys, well until the next one  :D

Is there and USAgent mesh around. I know he is a mere clone of Cap but i always liked him, don't know why. I stormed gren;s 16 groups but he didn't make one or i didn't find one neither in his groups nor in the champions of freedom groups. I really didn't have any strength to start searching in the various groups i have on my list so here i am.

Post by: hoss20 on November 04, 2013, 05:34:27 PM
Ah, you got it already! I was about to post to let you know that I sent it. I figured the skin might be missing an art file, but usually when that happens the mesh piece is pink, not white. Well, anyway I'm glad the problem is fixed.

Renegade made a USAgent mesh located here: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Renegades_Toybox_Part_2/files (Both Classic and Omega Flight)

C6 did an awesome skin for Tommyboy's equally awesome Hobgoblin mesh here: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/C6_Unhosted_Skins/files

Hoss is quick as flash. Both meshes rock thx for pointing them out. Still no news about rocket racer huh? Guess there isn't a skin after all. If anything else crosses my mind i will post it here. Thumbs up to the community once more  :thumbup:

Post by: hoss20 on November 04, 2013, 11:33:18 PM
Wasn't Cyber doing a skope for Rocket Racer? I think it only needed a skin. I have a hero file for Rocket Racer in my archives (I don't know if it's a USAgent or TaskmasterX file) that shows it uses the male_surfer mesh. Also, Vigilante did a Rocket Racer skin, but it's for male_basic: http://originalvigilante2.tripod.com/skins5.htm

Daglob is the man!

Sounds like Daglob is stepping up.

Also, Vigilante did a Rocket Racer skin, but it's for male_basic: http://originalvigilante2.tripod.com/skins5.htm

I am never short of amazement in how awesome the old school skinners were. What they did with the original meshes (Male_Basic, Male_Cape, etc.) is worthy of some major respect.

Well i didn't know that vigilante had a skin. To be honest i didn't ever know who vigilante was  :P. I will check his skin and experiment a little bit. I am currently reading some spider man comics with outlaws and i like rocket racer. He isn't that deep of a character but the whole magnetic skateboard ans missile thing is intriguing.

Oh, are there any speedball mehses out there beyond tommyboy's awesome pack?

Post by: Jimaras8 on November 05, 2013, 02:20:24 PM
Oh, ok. I just wanted to ask, what does the note that tommy wrote below the speedball pack mean? About rewriting the nif to character.nif and placing the skin to the standard folder. In-game the mesh changes skins without a problem. What are all those nifs in the mesh folder suppose to do.
Title: Re: Part VII: Carnage (already have the one form UE), Speedball and Rocket Racer
Post by: hoss20 on November 05, 2013, 04:59:16 PM
In the preview picture on Tommyboy's site and in the Speedball mesh folder itself it not only shows the different skins, but different meshes for the skins to match. So, if you would like to use the version with the coat, you would change the current character.nif to something like character_original.nif and then change the Speedballcoatcharacter.nif to character.nif. You would then choose the Standard skin and rename it to Original and rename the Speedball 2nd coat skin to Standard so that it is the default skin for the new mesh.

It's just up to you if you want to get rid of the other meshes whose look you don't like along with the extra skins. I've included a little guide to the meshes and skins so that you don't have go changing the nif names and closing in and out of the Character Tool a half a dozen times to pick the look that you want. I've used the skin names and the nif names are either exactly the same or something close enough to figure out.

I get it Hoss, thx for the mini tutorial. Anyway, i used the default mesh and skin which happens to be Speedball's classic outfit and my personal favourite. So no problem here. One last thing. I know i shouldn't post it here but does anyone have any imperial guard hero files? I already use usagent's ones but i could use more feedback  ;)

First Note: Renegade's meshes rock but man the names of your meshes could easily be secret service initials. I don't even know whose mesh i am downloading. Hahah i am just kidding. It's a plan to force to download them all right? It's working.

Apart form styles_skopes has style any other yahoo group?

Last one: What Venom meshes are out there? I think i remember a murs one and a TexasJack. Oh and to save you from the trouble i already have agent venom.

No actual Venom meshes that I know of, but Johnny Patches had a "Venom_New_Head" skope floating around somewhere (It was at the Champions of Freedom website), and I know that Daglob made a very nice skin for it (But  I don't remember if he released it), unfortunately I don't think it's loaded anywhere online at the moment, hopefully someone can E-Mail the files to you.

There is another skope located here: http://catman.freedomforceforever.com/pages/spider.html

And I know that there are more skins out there, for example, The Ultimate Evil has one at Heroforce, and I'm sure that there are more out there.

And which Agent Venom did you have, I believe there were more than one made.

Detourne_Me's skope: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/detourne_me/

There was another one, I think by BigAl, but I can't seem to find it right now. If I come across it later, I'll let you know.

As for Styles' skopes, with Champions of Freedom being gone, check the Champions Yahoo Groups. There are only a couple of his skopes loaded up there, but some are better than none.

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/Champions_of_Freedom_2/

As far as Renegade's meshes go, my rule was to just download them all, I would end up using them eventually.  :P

Well i can't get away for a sec and you people come up with more findings. Outrageous  :P.

Personally, I like being able to help people, it makes me feel good about myself knowing that I was able to do something nice for someone else, and my hope is always that the person I help will pay it forward. But also, doing this gives me a break when I'm getting frustrated with skopes that I am working on. So it's a win - win situation.  :D

. Any way i can i am gonna help every member of the community i can even though i am still a rookie here. At least those 3 gb of meshes that sit on my drive are going to prove useful to someone besides me. CB you don't have to get upset about skopes man. Art is a getaway, it helps us relax and sometimes make things we couldn't dream. If a skope is proving a hard nut to crack then you let it go and catch up with it later. We aren't gonna run form creators any time soon as i see it  :D. However, i get your point, i myself get so frustrated when i can't think of the proper effect,fx,sound or name for a power especially when it's the last ones for the character. It drives me crazy  :P!

As for agent V, i think i have the ones from dm. Well if anyone remembers something about venom or carnage (still looking for a second mesh apart for UE which is really good) just drop out here. At least this thread can help guys like who have difficulties locating meshes for characters. It can turn out as a sort of mini database.

If I find a site with any meshes, skins of extras, I just go ahead and download EVERYTHING, because if I don't use it, someone will eventually.

I had forgotten about Vigilante's Rocket Racer. His site was one of the first I found when I started collecting skins. Now I'll have to see if I can fix it so that V's skin will fit Cyber's scope...

Yes, I did a skin for Venom New Head. I thought I had posted it... I did skins for several of Johnny Patches scopes that I guess I've forgotten to release.

This community deserves every hero created and if i find myself some time i might start learning how to create skopes even though art isn't my ace in the hole.

Guys, sorry to insist but i was pretty sure i have seen at least one TJ Venom and one Murs47 skin i think. When i searched the forums i did find that was true, however there was no link for the meshes. can someone dig anything up?

If no one sends you Murs' version by the time I get home tonight, I will E-Mail it to you when I get home.

As far as Nifskope goes, you don't need to be an artist, just experiment a little with it and see what happens. It couldn't hurt. Just back up your files before you start messing with them.

CB, Murs47 venom was as RD pointed in the late Champions of Freedom. I can view the archive but i can't download the mesh. So if you can e-mail it i would be very grateful.

Any Paladin meshes around here? You know, guy in purple suit (cheesy!) holds a gun.

JKC has the only other one I see in his yahoo group. Its a skin of her in her original haircut/ oufit

If you look at Murs page again, it looks like his Moonstone has a Ms Marvel skin. Looking for that in my files but haven't found it yet. May need it myself

Paladin - LP has a Paladin skin on a riddlemethis mesh.

Paladin - LP also has a skin for Gren's Paladin.

I would check his site for both.

I also have a 3 pack of her in her Ms Marvel /Warbird outfits by Matrix8471. That one I'm sending to you as it doesn't appear to be on the list.

Other meshes I see are 3 different versions of her as Warbird;

One an ink mesh with skin by C6, one looks like by Tommyboy and not sure of the third since I have no readme for it. The list mentions one by Bobby69 so that's probably it.

And last, some skins as Warbird by C6 on female_heroic and one more on female_basic_amazon with no readme. Could be by Gryphon.



Jim, as you can see asking for ALL of a character can take some research and there can be quite a few results in the end. Such digging can take time and really the original requester should do as much as possible.

Try to find out what the error is on the list and lets see if we can get it working for you. The last updated version I sent you has a total number of 7200+ meshes and skins on it.

I accidentally created a shortcut and deleted the original that's why it couldn't open. RD can i ask you which programm you use to pen the megalist? Windows open it with excel but i can't find it very handy.

Edit: Does anyone know how can i make Hulk_red (Renegade) power animation with the gamma barrel appear in game? I can see it in character tool but no matter how many times i rename it in the keyframes it doesn't appear. I' ve tried make it ranged naming it ranged_2  but it didn't work.

Huh, I thought that Gren's Ursa Major mesh from the Champions site already transformed; or maybe I'm thinking of another mesh. I must be. :P

As for the Hulk_Red issue, I'm not sure.  Unfortunately, I don't have my laptop with me anymore, so I cannot test with or mess around with the files.  Sorry :(  I could have sworn, though, that there had to be some "leave_hand" keys to the animation for it to be considered a ranged attack.
Title: Re: Part X: Ursa Major and Rocket Racer.
Post by: detourne_me on November 12, 2013, 05:40:22 PM
spyderman, you are correct.  for an animation to appear like that, you'll have to skope the keyframes to have a leave_hand or contact play in between the start and end points.
there are plenty of tutorials on how to do this.
Title: Re: Part X: Ursa Major and Rocket Racer.
Post by: Jimaras8 on November 12, 2013, 08:26:18 PM
I already did guys. Found the contact and converted to it to leave_hand still it doesn't appear. As for my first question there are two meshes in gren's Ursa Mjaor, a human and a bear. I am asking how can i make the human form transform into bear in game. Benton did it in MA with antman making him able to go Giantman.
Title: Re: Part X: Ursa Major and Rocket Racer.
Post by: hoss20 on November 13, 2013, 04:48:35 AM
In regard to Ursa Major, it depends on your choice of how you want to handle the transformation. Johnny Patches has a skope here: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/WiCKeT_HaRLeYs_Freedom_Force_Skopes/files/shapeshifters

This skope has the human transforming into a bear during certain animations. Otherwise, in order for you to use both of Gren's meshes, you will have to set up your Ursa Major hero file with the Shapeshifter attribute and have him change from one form to the other.

For your Red Hulk animation question, I have to ask if you added to the number of Text Keys in the animation. The original Power animation only has two text keys (Start and End). As Detourne_me mentioned, you will need to add a third Text Key (leave_hand) in between Start and End. I'm only asking/restating this because you mentioned that you changed the contact to leave_hand, but there was never a contact key in the Power animation to begin with. Check out this tutorial and look under Adding multiple contacts to melee animations: http://frworld.wikispaces.com/Tutorial5+Keyframes+Basic
You can take the steps noted and apply them to what you're trying to do with the Red Hulk Power animation.
Title: Re: Part X: Ursa Major and Rocket Racer.
Post by: Jimaras8 on November 13, 2013, 08:03:53 AM
That was my bad. I used leave_hand in another animation of red_hulk. Power anim has only two text keys. So i need to add a third. I will try doing it.

AS for Ursa, do i need to add shapeshifter to both my heroes. Let's say i make a humna form with certain stat, attrib and powers and then create a more powerful bear form using the second mesh Benton had in the pack. The shapeshifter should be added to both heros? Do i need to do anything else except that. See, i don't want him just to transform into the bear in some animations but rather tranform into a whole a full-powered second bear hero.

Edit: Ok, i did it! I added the leave_hand text and the power appeared. Thx to hoss and all the guys who gave me the feedback.
Title: Re: Part X: Ursa Major and Rocket Racer.
Post by: hoss20 on November 14, 2013, 12:48:54 AM
You would give your human form the Shapeshifter attribute and give the bear form the Temporary Form attribute. You will need to open the Shapeshifter hero in the FFX Control Centre to assign the bear form to him. If the bear doesn't have the Temporary Form attribute, it won't show in the list to choose for the Shapeshifter.

Do you have the FFX Manual? It contains all of the instructions on how to customize attributes and powers with FFX. It's included in a folder within your FFX folder, but you can find it online here: http://ffx.freedomforceforever.com/manual.htm

Title: Re: Part XI: Static from teen titans.
Post by: detourne_me on November 26, 2013, 12:15:17 PM
the best way to get characters to do a special run is to rename it as tumble, then give them the tumble special power.
I do this for the majority of characters instead of giving them sprint... I don't think the animation is triggered if it's called "sprint"

A simple bodyswap could be done, putting that mesh onto the "Deadpool_Muscular" mesh by Shevek.
Title: Re: Part XIII: Bloodscream with Katanas!
Post by: Cyber Burn on December 01, 2013, 05:08:09 AM
Base Mesh: Deadpool_Muscular by Shevek

Male_Basic: Crossfire_Gren by Grenadier

Ponytail: Shatterstar by Beardedinlair

Keyframes(Not Included): Deadpool_Muscular by Shevek

Skins: As of this writing, none are included, only a Wiremap is supplied.

1. Recommended for use with Blobula's Bloodscream skin located at: (http://blobula.webs.com/)
2. Also recommended to use the (Katana.tga) file from the standard skin from the "Deadpool_Muscular" mesh.

If you are interested in this, let me know and I'll hook you up, minus the skins.

CB, that's a great idea CB, i am afraid i odn't know how to do this. If you could write me down the process, i could see how it's done. Well, if it's isn't trouble i would appreciate if you give it a shot.

Ok, another one that came into my mind. Usagent uses some meshes in his Olympian Gods hf like Pluto_t, Hermes_t etc. Spyder sent me hermes_t and i was wondering if anyone had Pluto_t.

Apparently, even the converted meshes don't work for him.  I sent him mine a while back ago, and he said that it didn't work, and I know for a fact that it did.

He gave me his and it worked perfectly well on my computer.

I have no idea what's going on.

I have two very stupid questions, but these are the only two things that I can think of:

1. You keep your keyframes within the character mesh's folder, right?  I know that Benton has a keyframe library system where the keyframes for the meshes in his DCUG mod are placed in a separate folder, and I am unsure if you do the same.  Also, if you do not do such a thing, make sure that there is no "keyframes.txt" in the character folder.

2. When we send you the keyframes, do you place it in the character folder and do nothing to the keyframes, or do you modify them before placing them?  I know that I have my own techniques for converting meshes, and just to be safe, I run every mesh through the conversion process.
Title: Re: Part XIII: Bloodscream with Katanas and Hermes_t
Post by: Jimaras8 on December 01, 2013, 10:31:13 PM
Don't be afraid to ask Spyder  :D.

1: I am aware of the technique Benton used especially in his DCUG mod. No, i don;t do that. The keyframes are always in the mesh folder. And to answer your second question as well, i only edit the keyframes if i see a useful animation that connects with power that comes to mind. Thus this happens only on a working mesh as i can the animations and choose what to change. As the received the PLuto mesh form you and CB i have placed it in my custom folder where all mu meshes are kept, didn't touch, only converted it, checked the CT2 tool and there no animations.

Ok, a couple of quick questions.

1.) Are you converting the meshes that Spyder and I sent you?

2.) Can you post the path that your custom characters are in?

For example, my files look like this:

(http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa49/Cyber_Burn_33/Character_Path_01_zps1baa1ecf.jpg) (http://s199.photobucket.com/user/Cyber_Burn_33/media/Character_Path_01_zps1baa1ecf.jpg.html)

Before my disk drive went out, I had set up my Hero Files to accommodate for the various folders. So, even though I can't view them all in CTool2, I can still see them all in game.

Post by: Cyber Burn on December 02, 2013, 05:04:40 AM
More questions for you (I like to follow things through).

1.) Did the "Pluto_T" mesh by Tommyboy work for you?

2.) Did you rename the meshes, or any part of them?

3.) Can you send me both the Grenadier mesh and the Tommyboy mesh that you have already converted for your game? Maybe sonething could be figured out from there.
Title: Re: Part XIII: Bloodscream with Katanas and Hermes_t
Post by: Jimaras8 on December 02, 2013, 08:14:06 AM
Well, i will try to answer them all at once. I have still to install Pluto_t, however a mesh that i found in megalist and i think it was made by tommyboy worked fine, as everything else. My path is exactly the same as yours: custom/art/library/characters. Yes, i converted the meshes but only when they didn't work in CT2 and the convertion worked fine. The only mesh that has no animations pre and post conversion is the notorious Ol_Pluto. I will send them right away CB! I didn't touch anything inside the meshes. Took it, placed in my custom folder, checked it in CT2, saw it didn't have anim, converted it, the same problem. Didnt't rename or overwrite anything. Themeshes by grenadier and tommyboy are on their way.

Since the "OL_Pluto_Gren" mesh isn't working for you, maybe I can skope up an alternative that will work.

As for the Nova Corps, I don't know what exists for other Corps members, but there is a wide variety of Nova skins that you could probably use as Corps members.

I don't want to put you into trouble CB and delay your other projects. Pluto_t is going to suffice for now. It isn't so much about the mesh but more about finding the solution in a problem that might occur again.

Post by: Cyber Burn on December 03, 2013, 02:22:24 PM
I have some ideas, some very simple, some requiring a little more work, but I think we can make the "OL_Pluto_Gren" mesh workable for you, one way or another. And I don't mind helping out, I actually enjoy being able to help when I can, so it's definitely not a problem.

As for the Bloodscream skope, again, not a problem, I think it took about 15 minutes at the most.

I should have some variant Nova skins floating around, I'll take a look and see what I have, maybe you could build a Corps off of them.
Title: Re: Part XIII: Bloodscream with Katanas and Hermes_t
Post by: Jimaras8 on December 03, 2013, 03:30:38 PM
Well as i have a nova prime and not just nova it seemed a good idea to add some of his corps, make it look like a galactic force. I trust your opinion on which skin and mesh is the most suitable for this role. Nova corps suit resembles the one nova used before Xandar was destroyed so i guess it's not so hard to find.

CB, thank you very much for the effort. It really appreciated. Both versions work ok with keyframes and all. When i viewed version 3 first i was a little worried as i noticed Superman animations that are great for eyebeams but they weren't appropriate for what i had in mind for Pluto. However v2 has more conventional animations with hands so i think it will do just fine. Thx for all theo work that you put to help solve my problem  :thumbup:  :thumbup:.

Post by: Cyber Burn on December 04, 2013, 04:14:42 PM
Not a problem, like I said, there were easy solutions, and more time consuming solutions, I started with the easy solutions first, which was just a simple keyframe swap. I'm glad this worked out for you. You could also try using keyframes from grenadier's other caped meshes to see if there is something else you might prefer.

I'll also send you some Nova skins I have, there are a variety, so you can pick and choose what you want to use.

if you have Syn's Nova, there are a number of hidden pieces for corpsmen and whatnot.

I highly recommend taking a look at that, it is an awesome mesh.

I should also have a Nova somewhere in one of my Yahoo Groups. Plus Bobby69/Vertex has a Nova69 mesh floating around.

First step with this would be to try keyframe swaps. Try some of Grenadier's keyframes located here:

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/Grenadiermeshes3/

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/Grenadiermeshes11/

You could also try Beyonder's keyframes located here:

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/BYD_mb_keyframes/

Start with the "Male_Basic_Draconus" variants in Gren's 3rd group and go from there.

Fusion has a Skrull mesh, and a Super-Skrull mesh (But he's on the "Do not Skope" list).

Afghan Ant has a Super-Skrull skope.

Johnny Patches had some Skrull variants, and I know that Daglob skinned a few of them.

Daglob may have a few other Skrull skins as well.

I had started skoping some of Renegade's Skrull meshes to give them other weapons, but had never finished the skopes.

I think Vertex had an AOA Havok, and other than Sinister, I think that the others have been done somewhere. Not having my computer, I can't really verify.

As to the Mod issue, there is a work around. I don't remember off the top of my head, but I think if you copy the shortcut to another mod, and rename something (I don't remember what) it should work.

The easiest way to do that is copy the FFX3 shortcut and rename it to something like AoA.

Right-click on the shortcut and click properties.  In "Start In" and "Target," just change any instance of "ffx3" to the name of the mod folder.  Click "Apply," close the window, and the shortcut should now work.

Strucker has been on my list to skope forever, I wanted his power glove (Or whatever it was called). I just haven't been able to skope it to my satisfaction.

Well,

you open a mesh and the mesh with the keyframes that you want in Nifskope.  Once there, you can remove parts of a mesh by clicking on the part you want removed and deleting it's entire block (Go to Block>Remove Block after right-clicking it in the menu).

You can then copy a block from another mesh onto the mesh that you are modifying.  There are quite a few tutorials in the "Hex Editing" sub-forum that go much more indepth.

Well, you guys did it again. I was looking for an original mod in the frunlimited and i stumbled at your avatars mod. So surreal, i was laughing for 5 minutes straight. I think i will take a break for creating marvel characters and i will focus a little in you guys, see how crazy i can make you. A couple o questions first.

1 How can i run the mod in full screen? When i start it it runs in a window and it's kind of annoying.

2 Have you guys made any hero files for yourselves? The mod has plenty of avatars but i think a couple of the creators are missing like Podamrk or Ink. Could any of you be so kind to send me any avatar hero files? I' ve found the meshes in AA's site.

So i anyone has made any herofiles about the avatars it would much appreciated. I already have spyder hero files which include: tommyboy, AA, Podamark, Ink, Fractal Girl, Cacus, Demon, C6, Bovine, Ivan P, Unko Man, Ultimate Evil, Abenavides, Dr Man Bot (btw i haven't found his mesh), Magmaman, Lightning Man. Any hero files beyond these would be most welcome  :D.

I know that Sioux City Dynamo has some hero files for his avatar-related meshes that come with the downloads and Afghan Ant has hero files attached to his avatar (and his variants) as well as members of the Gamma Patrol.  I believe Tomato also has some hidden in his downloads, but I'm not sure about that.

For reference, try the Freedom Reborn Wiki: http://frworld.wikispaces.com/

Down at the bottom of the page, under Community, the Heroes, Villains, and teams links have descriptions along with pictures of many of the avatars. Although the descriptions are not put in hero file format, they do give you an overview of their powers and strength levels so that you can create your own hero files.

Also, here's an archive page for NPI: http://web.archive.org/web/20060113152959/http://newpowerinc.com/skins_hexes.htm

Being an archive, it's a little hard to navigate, but clicking on the creators on the left side will bring up their listings and most have a link for avatars they have done. Unfortunately, some of the download links don't work, but it's still a good resource to check out.

Also at Alex's Freedom Fortress: http://www.alexff.com/goodies.php

There are two Mods based on FR Avatars. They are the "Forum Battle Royale 1" Mod and the "Forum Battle Royale 2" Mod.

They are both for FF1, but are very much worth checking out. Just a heads up though, I think that they are both pretty good sized files.

I don't yet have my files from my old computer, but going through the stuff that I do have, the only Skins that I have been able to find for Syn's "Nova" Mesh are the Standard Skin, and the one from Murs47.

Downloaded Gren's Dormammu mesh, converted it and i noticed it is pink in the CT2!! What's going on?

I don't seem to have that Mesh, the only "Dormammu" Mesh that I know of is the one by Valandar. As for the pink Skin issue, have you converted your (.TGA) files to (.DDS) format yet?
Title: Re: Part XVV: Dormammu is pink!!!!
Post by: spydermann93 on January 22, 2014, 02:10:52 PM
Make sure that you aren't missing your "_glow" and "_refl" files for each type, e.g. male_basic_glow, male_basic_refl, etc.  Missing those files will give you the Dread Pinkmammu.

Or it could be that he's not converted to .dds as Cyber had mentioned.

He has not been sent as of yet, Jim.

I just don't know if I'm creating him correctly.  According to some sources, he is fairly strong, but not incredibly strong, and yet, in other sources, he is stronger than Thor is.  I might just end up making two versions of him just so he at least feels right.

According to the Marvel Comics Database, Starhawk is at Thor's Strength level. Basically, he's in the 100 Ton Category.

http://marvel.wikia.com/Stakar_Ogord_(Earth-691)


However, according to ComicVine, his base Strength level is in the 2 Ton Category, but if he uses Aleta's Light Powers as a boost, then he can hit the 100 Ton level. Apparently, he can only do that if the two of them are merged, otherwise, he appears to remain at the 2 Ton level.

Post by: hoss20 on March 26, 2014, 07:56:11 PM
If we're talking "classic" Starhawk here, I think you're looking at the 10 ton range for a strength level. I admit that I'm not up on current comics as much as I should be, so I don't know what retcons took place over the past few of years. It appears that he is much stronger now and that some of his powers may come from being imbued by the Hawk-God. This last bit was new to me, so it may just come down to what version you are looking for, Jimaras. Of course, by the nature of his powers, he exists in several alternate realities, so who really knows?
Title: Re: Part XXI: Photon, Spectrum, Monica Rembau.
Post by: Jimaras8 on March 26, 2014, 09:23:20 PM
That's true Hoss. he is kinda confusing. the only comics i 've read with him are the Korvac saga where he seemed pretty strong by in my opinion not Thor strong. But as you said this was a long time ago and they might have buffed him. If anyone has more extensive knowledge on his power level please enlight us although my personal preference is spider-man level power and maybe a little more than that.

Try the Keyframes from Ink's "Magma" Mesh, located here: http://heroforce.freedomforceforever.com/ink.html

Ok, guys, after vast digging i was able to find Gren's Thunderstrike mesh. Mission complete, but i could still use some insight on Monica Rambeau. If anyone has made a hero file about her (already have USAgent's that CB sent to me) to use as second base i would be thrilled!!!

For what this is worth I've messed around with his meshes a bit and a few of the male bodies won't conform to male basics, usually due to the mouth node. But I know that at least his Dr.Fate can be skoped right into any male basic without any problems as well it conforms to the standard male basic skin assignment. Skoping that body into a Spider-man mesh would offer a cheap way to have a Gren-style Spidey. The face could be changed as well way to easily in Blender or Max as well, like to say flatten the nose if it was preferred.
Title: Re: Part XXV: Gorgon and mentor hero file.
Post by: Jimaras8 on April 14, 2014, 01:14:02 PM
I am looking for a gorgon mesh form the 2005 Enemy of the State Wolverine storyline, http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-3104635 (http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-3104635) . Also, does anyone have any mentor hero file for feedback? I have almost completed my imperial guard but Mentor is rather tricky.

Edit: Also could someone provide me with Murs47's or Syn's Spiderman 2099 skin?

Edit 2: Ok, so i got my hands in Murs's 2099 skin but it seems it goes with a taskmster mesh and keyframes. Is it possible for someone of you guys to swap taskmaster's kfs with tommyboy's 2099 keyframes? The skin is awesome but the animations are not very ''spidey-like''!!

I think that Taskmaster will take any Male Basic skin, so Murs skin shold be for any Male Basic compatable mshe (and any other male mesh with a little work.).

I'm pretty sure I've got Murs base, I just need to look for it. I'll take a look and see if I can figure out what is going on.

I had been debating about doing something for "Spider-Man", maybe I'll go ahead and add it to my list.

For the "Spider-Man" that I use, I use Johnny Patches' "Male_Basic_Abs" Mesh, but I don't remember which Keyframes I have with it.

As for Murs' "Spider-Man 2099", if you put it on a Male_Basic" type Mesh, or give it those type of Keyframes, you're going to lose the animation of the webbed cape on his back. Maybe Tommyboy's Mesh could work though, I would have to check it out.

Well if i recall Spyder was able to give AA's Ms Marvel the keyframes from LP's Ms Marvel. I was wondering if the same could be done here. Take the mesh as it is and just give it spider kfs  ;) ;). I am expert guys so i might just be talking nonense. The thing is i really like Murs's skin and i really, really wanted to make a 2099 Spider-man for a very long time. I really don't want to put you guys into trouble.

Hey Jim,

I might be able to fulfill your request, but I'm not that talented at porting meshes over to a new skeleton and maintaining all past features.  If I do port the mesh over, the "cape" will have to be Tommyboy's Spider-Man 2099's "cape" rather than Murs'.

Post by: Cyber Burn on April 18, 2014, 06:40:47 PM
This may be able to be done with a basic "Body Swap", that way, Skin files can still be fully used. I would have to check Tommy's Mesh though to see about the cape. Depending on how Tommy set his cape up, it "May" be possible to put the cape from Murs' Skin and put it on Tommy's Mesh. The Tvlite Meshes are mapped slightly different that the standard "Male_Basic" Meshes, so in order to get the full quality of Murs' Skin, there would have to be a body swap.

"Spider-Man 2099" = Done.

It looks like Murs' version may have been one of Ink's "Batman" Meshes. But I was able to copy all of the active pieces over to Tommyboy's "Spider-Man 2099" Mesh, including the cape. Of course, it's  :ffvstr: exclusive though. I will put it on my Flash Drive and E-Mail it to you sometime this week.

As for "Gorgan", I don't think anything currently exists for the Character.

If anyone has them could you send them my way?

Edit: Well i just figured out that bullet whirlwind is the generic fx for  :ffvstr: hero bullet.  :doh: :doh: :doh:. Well scrap that guys. Also Benton had sent me the windjet fx but i hadn't integrate it. However  i could still use that whirlwind_T69 mesh  :D

Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I was told that the Hub was a kind of file sharing site. Basically, members logged in and allowed other members to download files from their computers, while they downloaded files from other members computers. A little too permissive for my taste, but an interesting concept nonetheless.

As for the other ranking members of the Nova Corps, they are on my list, but because of other issues, most of my Skopes are on hold right now. So it will probably be a while before I get back to those.

If you take a look at Syn's Nova mesh (available here: http://frp.unlimited2.net/meshes/ )
A lot of the Nova Corps parts are hidden, including different helmets and star configurations.
If you wanted to, you could easily hide/unhide the different parts of the mesh to get Nova Corps members.

Follow up question about symbiote attribute. I want Rocket to be energized only when near Groot and vice-versa. I assume this is possible if in the FFX centre i change the exclusive to to Groot.

You would spell the Exclusive to's name exactly how the hero file is spelled. When you choose your hero from the drop down list in the FFX Control Centre, you can double check how it is spelled. It is how the game sees it.

Secondly, a thing that probably will show up in the future. After the massive LP's update which brought so many goodies i noticed that in all of dm's skopes if the character uses weapons, those weapons don't disappear in the normal melee animation. For example bulleye has his sais but when i select melee_1 which is a normal punch his sais appear if though they are no supposed to.

That's only in the character creation,  in game they wont be there, unless you interrupt the animation playing with another command, to run away or whatever.
I made many of my skopes before windblown's tutorial on scaling in keyframes, and it's quite a bit of work to add that info to every keyframe.

You could set some parameters for landing and/or flying away in the m25ai file.

Like for Thor, I made him land whenever he was in melee range of somebody so that he could wallop them.  He only flew when the enemy was flying.

Well, lete me see what i can do with all these Eternals. I was thinking about creating a combo attribute like the one i did for the Olympian Gods since i will be making a bunch of them. I could some some ideas on the attribute. I was thinking physical resistance or in 10, iron guts since all of them have very strong immune system and lesser regeneration. However i am not quite satisfied since it sounds quite generic. What do you guys think?

Actually just replace the core.nif file.  What I did was use the tga file for the skin, glow, and reflection without lighting.

It's a swap attack, just like Mental Damage or Crystallize.

If you look at the manual for FFX, you'll see how to go about setting up the attack :)

I looked for it and the only thing i found was ffx troubleshooting that had one line that goes like this ''* If it is an issue with a power swap (e.g. "I tried to set up a hex beam to crystal cage swap"), make sure you have run the character through the Rumble Room "Generate Power IDs" mission.''. The other ffx txt is an install readme with all the changes in the ffx version.

Ok my mistake. I founf the manual online and i have been doing some reseach. From what i understood it seems that state swap attacks are activated for every attack that has the first state. For example in our case we have Imperial Guard Hussar all of her stasis attack will have the pull effect. However i only want one pull attack. She already has a stasis attack but i don't want to have the pull effect. Can this happen?

I tend to use Speed Decrease for my pull state swap.  This registers as a piercing attack, or in other words a general physical attack.  In my mind I justify it that way... spiderman's webs wouldn't be able to pull Rhino, or another armored or resistant-to-piercing characters...because...reasons.
You could also use Density Max to take down flyers. this is useful because it also slows down the character, somewhat replacing the damage type i've assigned to pull.

That is actually a pretty good idea dm. I used density max for gorunded but for fliers in makes more sense. So if i get this right an attack with two states per se density max and pull will apply both states to the target? It will pull him and make him go slower? Also do you have any suggestion for lifedrain. Which state is best suited first?
Title: Re: Issue 13: Yank attacks.
Post by: detourne_me on October 12, 2014, 02:21:38 PM
I'm not too sure about making two state swaps... i think i've tried it with mixed results before.
As for life drain, it really depends on the character, right?  for a vampire, I use Speed Decrease then state swap to lifedrain,  that way it replicates piercing teeth. If it's a magical life drain I usually use stasis or exile.
That's the great thing about this game,  there are a number of damage types that can be swapped,  so you can usually replicate the appropriate attack. Be it energy, piercing, magical, mental or frozen

I play this game 5 years and only yesterday it came to my mind to make a pull attack. Otherwise i wouldn't know about swaps anyhow. What i meant with two state swaps is in your example a magical attack with pugratory and lifdrain will have both of those effects? Banish and lifedrain? Just so i get this straight.

In a sense, you can. You could make a status attack with stun and set "stun" to what you want the power to do (in this case, life drain), but realize that some attacks like Purgatory don't work well with stun (you'll have one or the other).

Also, for custom characters, setting "stun" to life drain will make all stuns life drain.  If you don't want that to happen, the character will have to be built-in, i.e. an actual character in your mod.
Title: Re: Issue 13: Yank attacks.
Post by: hoss20 on October 12, 2014, 10:02:58 PM
What Spydermann is describing is a Carrier Attack and it really does add some flexibility to attacks. The initial question you were asking was involving the standard State Swap. If you set up a Purgatory or Banish attack and use the Life Drain state swap, then the power will be a Life Drain attack. What DM was describing was the fact that the type of power used (Physical, Mental, Mystical) in the original power will be affected by the resistances of the character the power is being used upon, regardless of the power it is swapped out for. DM was describing making the State Swap power the same type as the original power, so that the affected hero has the same resistance for it. Another example would be to use Panic and swap it out for the Mental Damage attack because they are both Mental. You can see in-game what type of attack each power is, but the FFX Manual also has these listed in the descriptions of the Standard Powers.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 13, 2014, 06:59:03 AM
Thx for the info hoss. Yeah, making the states the same power type makes sense as the target will have at least a chance to resist that. The subject has become much clearer now. I don't believe i hadn't heard about states until three days ago  :lol:. Tank you all fo your help.

Just a word of warning for using DDS Convertor 2 (if it's that program)

Many skinners chose to cut down on file size by making 1x1 or 2x2 pixel refl or glow files (because they are solid black). These won't convert well because all source files for DDS must be at least 4x4 and in multiples of 4. The issue with this program is that it makes empty DDS files if a source doesn't convert well.
So in order to fix this, I suggest you search through your converted files and delete any 0kb DDS files. Those will definitely cause pink issues.

Dm, i think the programm is called dds converter 1.4. I don't think it's the same , however if i see any 0 kb dds i will delete them. I also have one of the biggest problems i have encountred over the years. It entails the transfer of my files from one computer to another. Although i copy the exact same folders fromt he custom data, the exact hero files from my application data folder with the ai and the dats, i notice that meshes aren't converted on the other computer as they should be, the keyframes that i have changed adding animations remain the same and more importantly the ffx control centre settings aren't saved. For example fury has private army of 4 shield agents and on my second pc although i have transfered all the files he has 4 cops. Same goes with symbiote settings, summoner etc. It has to be noted that i usually merge the fx,sound,powers dats and not the characters one since i haven't branded my custom into the game although they are branded in the ffx cc. Sorry for the long post, but this problem happens every time.
Title: Re: Issue 13: Shi'ar pink problem.
Post by: detourne_me on October 17, 2014, 01:33:12 PM
you would also need to transfer over the ffxcustom.py and ffxcustom2.py files in order to keep those settings from ffx control center.  i may be mistaken, but i think they are kept in the missions>scripts folder.

ph, and good looking out Hoss,  for the longest time i was wondering why i had pink textures until i figured that out.
mow whenever i get on an FF kick, i usually end up reassigning all texture files to dds in nifskope, and then converting them manually with photoshop.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 17, 2014, 05:04:10 PM
You are right dm they are in the scripts folder. I remember it cause i was messing with the ffxmulti. However the keyframes problem remains. Almost all of my new hero files have one or two additional animations and it will be really tiresome to go through 30 or so hero files in my second pc and edit the kfs again... So if anyone has an idea on that it would more than welcome.

If you mean use Jik's keyframes for murs mesh it would be easier to put the parts from murs nif into Jik's Spidey, then drop the keys from the Spidey I just released with them. Those keys accounted for 2099's cape. Then add the extra called for nodes to the new nif from mine (they're listed in the text file that comes with it). Just saying I pretty much covered everything for Spider-man (or I'm releasing anything I didn't soon) so no one would have to do things like this (those keys are exhausting to do over, trust me).

I think when I Skoped that (Wasn't released publicly), I had used one of Tommyboy's Batman Meshes to get both the swinging animations and the cape animations together. But like SickAlice said, the new Spidey release should have everything you could want as far as animations go, plus it has a Spidey 2099 Skin.

Or just use the keys if he prefers to have the male basic body and murs skin. Sorry I'm long winded, what I basically said is I already did the keyframe work so one would just need to set up a nif quick. So the recipe would be:

- Take Jik's spidey nif (needed for the webs)
- skoped the male_basic from murs 2099 (or any) into Jik's Spidey. Skope the cape_top node from murs 2099 (or any) and the cape itself into Jik's Spidey.
- From my release skope the nodes: pistol, gunholster, camera, tron_disk and x_Spidertracer into murs 2099. Or at least have nodes in there with those names.
- Use my keys.

This will save you a ton of work as opposed to going through the keyframes again and accounting for the cape.

I have a couple of request. A simple one and a much more difficult one. Is there a giant mesh for Yellowjacket? I have a skope which uses giant animations for melee and has shrinking animations for ranged but i am looking for a giant only like the one that has been made for Goliath/Giantman. I am trying to create two characters, the vanilla nimble yellowjacket and the towering/brute one like Benton did in the MA.

Second is a old request but i am trying again, i am persistent  :D. Could anyone be interested in taking a shot at Gorgon the Hydra/Hand assassin? http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-3104635 (http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-3104635)   (http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/7/71941/1487778-sw_21_0024.jpg).

Give Tommyboy's "New Giant Keyframes Pack" a try. You should be able to find something you can use there. I'm not sure which "Yellowjacket" Mesh you are using, but these should be compatible.

Thx in advance guys, Also i came across AA's archangel mesh and i was wondering if someone could swap the kfs to the classi angel ones. I love the mesh but i think it misses a flying melee or two.

Post by: hoss20 on December 08, 2014, 07:40:30 PM
The reason there aren't flying animations for the Archangel mesh is that the standard winged flying melee keyframes don't work for it, as there are additional pieces for the Archangel wings and they expand and retract. Plus, they wouldn't look right anyway because those animations flap the wings and Archangel's wings stay fixed. Standard vxflying_melee keyframes work, but the wings don't respond. I went ahead and skoped flying melee animations for vxArchangel and, as a result AA's and Pod's Archangel skopes. I sent them your way, Jim.

I can't speak for everyone but when I came on board here it was like many of us were in a mad dash to try and pull off AoA skins. I mean to get around to more sometime, or just absorb my page into the X-Men. I will revisit Husk from the AoA Anniversary mini at some point for sure as I loved the costume. While it wasn't my first comic, the Age Of Apocalypse was the one that got me buying and reading books on a monthly basis from that point until to date. I'd watched the cartoon and collected some trading cards at the time and saw the promo at a grocery store and remember being just taken back that this comic company would up and stop all their story lines and characters in mid-publish just to pull out a creative idea they had. Now days that's nothing new and par the course even but back then it was such a deal. That and I'm sure like anyone else I was drawn in by the images of Blink, Holocaust and Sunfire of course. That recent tribute (Remender, AoX, latter AoA series) got me all sorts of stoked as well. I wouldn't doubt if we see a revival again in the upcoming Secret Wars given how they laid the thing out (and if they bring back AoA Blink...Hoodah-hoodah!).

if it's based on grenadier's most recent batman mesh, then if you open it in NifSkope, you should see the batarangs in black panther's hands. right click on the batarang, click flags, then check the hidden box. you should be able to do this for both batarangs, then hit save.

Title: Re: Issue 19: Black Panther with Batarang????
Post by: hoss20 on January 23, 2015, 12:33:12 AM
What mesh are you wanting to use the power for? Normally, if a mesh has keyframes that contain the burrow_start animation, then the Burrow, Dig, and Tunnel Travel will show up under the Special menu for Powers in Character Creation/Edit screen. If the mesh does not have the burrow_start animation, then these powers will not show up as selectable.
Title: Re: Issue 19: Black Panther with Batarang????

Speed_AA Hoss. It has the burrow_star i am sure. It only appears in the active def menu not in the special.
Title: Re: Issue 19: Black Panther with Batarang????
Post by: hoss20 on January 23, 2015, 11:30:55 AM
I downloaded the skope and everything works fine. The big question is what type of power are you choosing on the Special Power menu? I chose the powers designed for the burrow animation (Burrow, Dig, and Tunnel Travel) and burrow_start shows up as the default animation. Did you choose another Special Power to make him hide, like Cloak of Shadows or Teleport Self? If so, that's the reason why the animation isn't showing up for you to choose from.

Speed_AA Hoss. It has the burrow_star i am sure. It only appears in the active def menu not in the special.

I think what you are looking at is the animation from Bullet's active defense where he spins. The burrow_start and burrow_end animations are standing vibration (like many Flash meshes). I loaded up FFVTR and had no problem setting Speed_AA up with Burrow.

Post by: hoss20 on February 10, 2015, 05:42:59 PM
You use FFVTTR, right? The "couldn't load mesh" message means that the mesh is an FF1 mesh that needs to be converted. It doesn't make sense that you have been able to view the mesh prior to this. Either this or you tried to alter the mesh in Nifskope and did something to "break" the mesh or skope.

As long as all of the art files are present, the pink issue is usually due to CTool2 having issues reading tga files instead of dds. It will read both, but I've found that if I have the tool open for a while, it eventually starts showing pink pieces (usually extras and not the min mesh). Converting art files to dds will solve this. I will usually just close down CTool and reopen it which will solve the problem for a while.

I am afraid none of these are the case hoss. The cannot load thing happened with Iron_fist gren among others. A mesh i am currently using in-game for my hero file!!!! So it's not a conversion issue. The pink problem starts the second i start CT 2 with meshes i remember checking days before and appeared fine. No, it's not a time issue either. I have unistalled and reinstalled the modding tools but the problem remains. Hoss which program do you use for converting the tga to dds?

Post by: daglob on February 10, 2015, 11:16:26 PM
While I have no real proof (I aren't no computey tech), I believe that sometimes the problem is memory related (at least on my computer). At other times, there is a missing texture (glow or reflection). I have a sets of most basic and versatile (TV, DS, TM) mesh refl, glow, and lightmaps all done in black, saved into their own directory. I copy those to a skin file, and tell the computer not to replace those that already exist. At times it works. At other times, as Hoss says, only changing the textures to DDS will solve the problem.

I had a program years ago that I used to convert tgas to dds, but once I upgraded to Windows7, the program did not function properly, so I stopped using it. I am fortunate enough to have a version of Photoshop and have downloaded a plug-in that enables me to work with dds files, so I will use that to convert tgas. One of the good things about that old program I had was that I could "bulk convert" all of the files in a skin folder, rather than having to do each one individually. The program is mentioned somewhere in  a few of the threads that address converting tgas to dds.

Go ahead and send me the Iron_Fist_Gren that is giving you trouble. I know you have other meshes, giving you problems in CTool, but let's start there. Just make sure that it is the current mesh that is causing the issue and not the original zip file.

I would really really really hate if i had to convert at least 200 meshes image files. Especially if i have to do it one at a time. I had minimal problem with the tga except for some occassional pinking in-game. Never in theCT 2 and suddenly half of them are pink and many of them can't be seen. I base my hero files in keyframes customization so not be able to see the animations and their variables is confining me...A LOT. I really appreciate the support guys let's try to figure it out. Hoss i will send you the IF mesh the onje currently in my custom folder which is causing the problem. They are plenty other but that's the one in my mind right now.

Post by: hoss20 on February 12, 2015, 01:59:20 AM
Jim, the Iron Fist that you sent me is for FF1 and needs to be converted. I tried pasting a piece from a skope that I knew was for 3rd Reich onto it and received a message stating that they weren't compatible nifs. This explains the message you were receiving. I went ahead and converted it and it works fine. I also double checked and Gren's Iron Fist does not work in FFVTTR without conversion. I don't really know what could have happened unless you had done some sort of system restore to your operating system. Even that, though, doesn't usually revert individual files.

So, for all of the meshes you are now having trouble with, I would go ahead and see about converting them again. I went ahead and sent you back the converted Iron Fist. Definitely let me know if it is still causing you problems.

In regards to bulk conversion for your Skins, you could try "XnConvert". There is occasional quality loss, but it's not too noticeable in game.

There might be a part of the mesh that is messing up the Character Tool, but the game either ignores it or doesn't see it as a problem.

You'll run into this with some of Gren's meshes. The Character Tool can't load some of them, but they work fine in-game. After a quick run-through of the NifConverter, the Character Tool sees them just fine :yes:

CB i tested the method and it doesn't seem to work. I replaced Boom-Boom time bomb end.nif with radbotls_red end.nif and the delay effect still applies. I don't seem to find any original  :ffvstr: fx. Where are they placed? In the main generic folder of the game i seem to only find the custom fx.  Also just to be clear when you are saying "replace" you mean just copying the  :ffvstr: end.nif in the generic folder and in the folder of the problematic fx right? I don't need to do any tampering with the nifskope.

did you unzip and extract your art.ff file? that should give you access to the original  :ffvstr: fx.

If I remember correctly, Boom Boom's "Time Bombs" were Yellow, right? I've got an idea for an updated FX if you're interested.

Any new fx is welcome. However i would also like to solve the delaying issue since there is a solution. Amazo wrote above and suggested to extract the art.ff file. To be clear you are not referring to art folder, am i right? The only fx i found there were the custom ones. Where is the art.ff file?

One last thing. When i replaced the end.nif od radbolts i noticed the time bomb had a red hue in the end apparently from the radbolt. So i guess the end.nif affects the appearance of the fx after all?

Post by: Amazo Version 2.2 on March 31, 2015, 02:22:13 PM
how cyber explained it to me, and i hope i'm remembering right, is that the end nifs for explosive projectiles from  :ff: had a timing issue in  :ffvstr:. so in order to counter that, you need to replace that end nif with a similar end nif from an fx from  :ffvstr:. in your fx folder, if you're only seeing the "generic" and "_textures" folders, then you haven't unzipped your art.ff folder. and it's from there that you'll find an end nif that should work.

but if i'm wrong, or didn't explain things completely, mqybe someone with more fx experience could step in.

The art.ff file is found in the Irrational Games->Freedom Force vs The 3rd Reich->Data folder. Right click on it and choose Open. Then choose Select a program from a list of installed programs. Here you will pick whatever program or application you use to unzip files. Once extracted, the Art folder containing the FX will be located here: Irrational Games->Freedom Force vs The 3rd Reich->Data->library->fx. In there you will see the generic folder which contains the nifs for the FX and the _textures folder that contains the art files (either dds or tga files).

Post by: Jimaras8 on April 01, 2015, 07:37:57 AM
Thank for the detailed process Hoss. I knew what i supposed to do but i just couldn't find the .ff file. It seems i was looking for inside the art folder instead of the data folder. I was one step ahead  :D. Thank all for the tips.

Windblown, won't the end.nif collide somehow with how the fx looks in-game? I noticed that when i used radbolts_red the end of the time-bomb had a red hue.
Title: Re: Issue 21: Boom-Boom and Time Bomb effects.
Post by: hoss20 on April 01, 2015, 08:12:25 AM
Each part of the FX is different (start, core, end) and the nifs and art files combine to make the FX. Windblown suggested the Liberty Lad Proximity Grenade because its end.nif is a yellow/orange explosion. I don't mean to offend you by saying this, but the reason the end of your edited time bomb FX is red is because you used the end.nif from radbolts_red.

For example, say you have an FX with a flare at the hand, then a beam that ends with an explosion. The set up for the FX would be Flare (start.nif), Beam (core.nif), and Explosion (end.nif). If you use a red start.nif, a white core.nif, and a blue end.nif, then your FX will go Red Flare, then White Beam, and end with a Blue Explosion.

If you had used the end.nif from radbolts_yellow, then the end of your new time bomb FX would have been yellow.

Another thing to note is that all of the different colored radbolts use the same nifs, it's just the art files used to color the nifs that are different. This is generally true for all FX that are the same, but come with different colored options (eyebeam, fireball, flamefist, etc.). Unfortunately, there's no way to have one FX and its nifs point to different art files to make different colored FX, so we have to have a copies of the same FX (and its nifs) with different art files assigned to make the color alternatives.

I'm really sorry if I just tried to explain a whole bunch of stuff you already knew.
Title: Re: Issue 21: Boom-Boom and Time Bomb effects.
Post by: Jimaras8 on April 01, 2015, 10:20:29 AM
Hahahah Hoss i figured that the hue was red due to the radbolts .nif, no worries. I still have some deduction abilities  :D :D. I was just kinda buffed by what CB said, that it didn't matter what end.nif you are using. Well i guess it matters visually only. We cleared that out.

Follow-up question: What happens what a fx doesn't have a end.nif to replace? Most direct fc don't if i recall. Let's say Cable_repel which also has a delay effect. Do i need to replace the core.nif?

You could replace the "Core.Nif" with a similar "End.Nif", and just rename that "End.Nif" to "Core.Nif". I can't give you a recommendation right now since I'm not really familiar with the FX.

Hm, i guess Microwave's materiaze could work as a replacement. What do you guys think.

Sorry i am firing those like a machine gun and i know they are fitting for this thread but i was wondering how i could change the flying fx for a character. I am not talking about a special power, let me clear this out. I want to make a Jean grey hf and i noticed a telekinetic flight fx. How can i adjust it so when Jean uses he telekinesis to fly the effect will appear? Not afterburner or sonic boom, normal flight.

Title: Re: Issue 21: Boom-Boom and Time Bomb effects.
Post by: hoss20 on April 03, 2015, 03:48:02 PM
Give this a try for Flying FX:

The FX you use doesn't even need to be a specific "Flight" FX. I used aff_radbolts and it worked fine. The fact that the FX uses "flying_" in the name ensures that it will trail the character while flying, remain present while hovering, and disappear when they land.

I performed these steps with my own Jean Grey and used the jeangrey_tk_flying FX and was successful.

If I had to take a guess, I would say that the issue is with incompatible files. I believe that you're using FFvt3R, and Adclaw's FX are for FF1, so there may have been an issue that was caused with you merging the Dat Files from his FF1 FX with your FFvt3R FX.

I've never really used the Flying FX, so I can't help you there, but I did want to check in and see if you were able to get your game running again after the issue you had with the Mental Pack.

Glad you backed up your Files before you merged them, definitely a good move, I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to back things up before altering them, it can be very frustrating.

Post by: Jimaras8 on April 04, 2015, 05:39:25 PM
CB, i know what you mean. I still needed to re install some fx and sounds but nothing compared to the disaster that would happen if i had to integrate over 60 fx in the system. Those are fx that are NOT in PFX or EZFX. Thankfully we avoided that. The game is fine now, i install individually every fx from the pack and alter their end.nif to make them work. It's slow, but it's also the only.

CB how are your fx shaping up? Have you thought of maybe doing some fire fx for Pyro? I had that thought the other day, the fire creatures that i have are basically the same model.
Title: Re: Issue 21: Boom-Boom and Time Bomb effects.
Post by: Cyber Burn on April 04, 2015, 06:01:08 PM
I do have a bunch of Fire FX that I had made for "Pyro". I think that there's maybe 8 or 9. These will be released when Alex releases his next update to EZFX. In the meantime though, I'm starting a new batch of FX, starting with the "Time_Bomb" FX. I'm also going to update the "Eye_Repel" FX, plus I have some FX for "Banshee" that I've started.

I've also got FX going for the "Mario" Characters that SickAlice made, but I may set those up separately.

If there's something specific that you want me to try, feel free to post it in my FX thread. Things will be a bit slow because of School, but I'm always willing to give things a try.

Post by: Jimaras8 on August 24, 2015, 07:32:47 AM
Two things guys.

1. Sometimes when i put private army less troops appear than the cp limit allows. For example in Squirrel girl i have her with pa level 3 at 15000 cp. The squirrels have 4.700 cp each. By all accounts she should have 4 squirrels. Ing-mae only 3 appear. I wnet to CC and saw that Private army has two charts with 6 slots each. Only the first slot from each chart had squirrel in it. What does that mean? That i have only selected two squirrels? In order to have 4 like the cp limit allows how many slots should i fill?

2. This is simpler. Is there any way to change the commands names when my character changes form? For example i have husk and when she transforms in her steel form i want the ing-mae command to show "steel form" not just "first form". Seems kind generic.

I have encountered an issue that i didn't know that existed all those years. My short descriptions don't appear in-game. Everything else that i'm writing in the lang file appears: power descriptions, full bios etc. However the short bio section stays blank in-game no matter what i write in the lang file.

Perhaps, give us an example of how your short description looks in the strings.txt file. This is the example for Minute Man that I found:

MINUTE_MAN_DESC_01, patriotic defender of the honest american!

I know that you are used to using FFEdit and manipulating game entries, but did you remember to hit the Generate Language Files button in FFEdit after you entered your short descriptions in the text file? Please, don't be offended by that question. I just know that sometimes we all get ahead of ourselves and forget a basic step. I know I've done it more than a few times.

Hahha, i understand your concern hoss but that's not the case. I always generate the files and that's the crazy thing, every other thing that i write from a full bio to a change name for the character (black knight instead of blacknight) generates wonderfully in-game. Everything appears except the short descriptions. It drives me crazy because i do nothing differently for those than for the other entries, i just fill the desc_01 with a sentence like i do for every other thing.

Ok, this is a big one. two days ago all my mod tools were working perfectly. Today i branded a new hero and i added him to my dat. I don't know if it's relevant but it was hero file based on AA's kirin mesh from his QMEN package. Anyway as i added him to dat from the RR tool in-game i tried to open the FFEDIT to change his template. There was no error involced, the program just didn't open. My task manager recognizes that the program is running in the background but it doesn't open in my desktop. The Character Tool works fine.

This is driving me crazy because i reinstalled the mod tools, they installed fine and the FFEDIT still doesn't open. The most insane thing is that it has been working for over a month since i made this new partition in my pc PERFECTLY. Up until this day.

FYI i run a 64-bit Windows 7 system.

Thanks! I hadn't released it because I usually release my fxs with the skope of the character I've made them for. And this one wasn't done for a specific character so I didn't know how to release it. I'm pretty happy how it turned out though.

You'll have to modify your ffx2.py to get it working. Take a look here, at the end of the page you'll find how to do it and an example: http://ffx.freedomforceforever.com/manual/cstates/sleep.htm (http://ffx.freedomforceforever.com/manual/cstates/sleep.htm)

For a psychic sleep I use power null, for a mystic one hex.

Post by: Jimaras8 on January 24, 2017, 07:03:33 PM
I think i'm starting to figure it out. What does the "all" section in the end mean?
Title: Re: Issue 32: Sleep state swap.
Post by: spydermann93 on January 24, 2017, 07:05:12 PM
Yeah, I would recommend just taking the time at some point to read the FFX manual (it's in your FFX folder). It has a lot of neat stuff that might not be apparent on even your 50th go-around.

Things like Ranged Grapple, Sleep, Throw, Grapple, and quote a few others aren't shown in FFControlCentre.

It's an enlightening and fun read. :)

All refers to "all powers". With built-in characters, you can specify which power gets which swap, but with customs, swaps apply to all powers. So all Hex attacks would be sleep for a custom, but for a built-in, one attack could be a Hex and the other puts the opponent to sleep.

You have been an immense help guys, thanks so much. I think i will save the ffxcustom just in case. The hero in question is Pixie which Scarlet Witch has taught a sleeping spell, "Mists of Morpheus". The thing is i don't have a visual reference for the spell so i'm drawing blanks regarding the fx or the type. I'm thinking a hex effect just like WB suggested since she is a mystic. Any ideas?

Btw WB, did you do the keyframes for Pod's Pixie? If yes, great work as always.

Post by: Jimaras8 on January 26, 2017, 06:00:24 PM
The problems don't seem to end. After reinstalling the game today i noticed that the characters have to be within a minimum distance away to perform ranged attacks. I would swear that i could use beams and projectiles from point blank range 2 days ago. Now the character has to retreat 2 meters away from the target o perform the attack. Why did this happen?

Here's a couple of visual references for you, she wasn't very good at thatt spell at first:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

It looks like a standard pink fx.

Post by: Jimaras8 on January 26, 2017, 08:34:47 PM
Yes, it seems a good old alchemiss repel will do the trick. One last question before i write the line. Does the character need to be added to the dat or can he be custom and the py file recognize him?

As for the kfs, you are always doing top notch job WB, very inventive and fun keyframes and fx. You are Podmark are the Golden duo  :thumbup:. I also figured out the distance thing. If you enable the "no minimum distance" option in CC your character can fire their ranged attacks at any range. It comes pretty handy for me.
Title: Re: Issue 33: Changing shapeshifter's form names in CC
Post by: Jimaras8 on February 19, 2017, 09:47:51 AM
Howdy fellas. I was wondering if it was possible to change the names of the shapeshifter forms in CC so they can appear more accurate in-game. For example i have made an Ursa Major hero file and i don't know if you are familiar but he is a mutant with the ability to transform into a bear. I have given him the "shapeshifter" attribute in his human form and the "temporary form" attribute in his bear form. The command name in the CC is CUSTOM_FORM1. Is there any way to change it so it can appear as "bear form" in-game instead of "first form"? I tried CUSTOM_BEARFORM but it didn't work. It still appeared "first form" in the Rumble room.

Howdy Jim.  I've messed with this a lot myself, and I can't remember where I landed.  I seem to remember that, maybe changing/adding things in the .py files was useful, or perhaps I had to add a string entry.  I'm sorry I don't remember more!

Hey benton, is there a manual for this sort of thing that clears things up. I see you have managed to work it out with commands like Grow for Giant-man. Whee did you learn how to do it?
Title: Re: Issue 33: Changing shapeshifter's form names in CC
Post by: windblown on February 20, 2017, 02:43:55 PM
There's a manual here: http://ffx.freedomforceforever.com/manual.htm

There's an entry for the Shapeshifter attribute (http://ffx.freedomforceforever.com/manual/attributes/shapechanger.htm) at the end it explains how to do customisations. In short , if you open a shapeshifter character at the Control Centre you'll see that it has a Command section, you can type there the name that you want to use for that form. You can do the same for the temporary form.
Title: Re: Issue 33: Changing shapeshifter's form names in CC
Post by: Jimaras8 on February 20, 2017, 03:26:53 PM
Hm, i did that WB, i put CUSTOM_BEARFORM in the base hero file and it still apeared first form in-game. I did not change the name in the temporary form though, so it might be it.
Title: Re: Issue 33: Changing shapeshifter's form names in CC
Post by: Jimaras8 on February 20, 2017, 06:07:07 PM
Ok, now i have a different kind of problem. I figured out the names, i just needed to type the name in capitals without the custom in front. However, now that i have branded and added the character to dat whenever i select the bear form in game he just disappears and the session ends immediately. Why is that? Do i have to add some BEAR FORM desc in the strings? Notice that this didn't happen when the character was a custom one who wasn't added to the main dat. I could switch forms easily.

Edit: Ok, i found out how to change the desc of the names, all i needed to do was add a custom_name line in the strings with a description of the command. The crashing however remains. I created both the human and the bear characters for Ursa Major and gave his bear form the temporary form attribute. Ran them both on CC, made them ais and finally, added them to dat. The file worked perfectly when it was just a customc haracter and now that it's intergrated everytime i try to select his bear form in-game the session ends.
Title: Re: Issue 33: Changing shapeshifter's form names in CC
Post by: BentonGrey on February 20, 2017, 10:25:05 PM
Hmm, weird bug, Jim.  It wouldn't be the String.  Strings are purely aesthetic.  They wouldn't affect gameplay.  I'd say that either A) something is wrong with the integrated character or B) somehow your script guts have gotten corrupted.  I'd try removing the Temporary Form attr. and test the bear in the game.  If he works okay (be sure to check his powers and such, make sure he doesn't have any long names), check out the FFX Custom entry for the character and make sure it's copacetic. 

Ohh, and I'm glad you figured that out.  Sorry I wasn't more help, but it's been a long time since I was messing with that.  :P

Post by: spydermann93 on February 20, 2017, 10:53:35 PM
Does the bear have the Temporary Form attribute (not the Accidental Form attribute)?

EDIT: Disregard that. I just saw that the bear form does have the attribute. Hmmm... did you also try cleaning out your ffxID.py after adding your character to the .dat?

You shouldn't need to do that, but since you're having problems, it's something to try.  It's likely that something isn't working properly.
Title: Re: Issue 33: Changing shapeshifter's form names in CC
Post by: spydermann93 on February 22, 2017, 12:55:36 AM
I'd just clear out all of the entries in the ffxID.py. Leave it looking like this:

Code: [Select]
ffxIDs=[
]

Then just open the FFX Control Centre, select the mod, pick any character (doesn't matter which), and click "Save". It will then repopulate the ffxID.py with all of your custom heroes (not built-in!).

Built-in characters, as far as I'm aware, are defined by their "complex" attribute in the template page. So long as that is a unique number, then the character should function properly.

I have two sets of keyframes in the main folder of my copy; regular and 12 foot. I don't know about these days. The mesh looks interesting, kind of like a Tom Heavy that compares to Male Heavy (or maybe Male Really Muscular), whereas his regular Male Heavy is more like Male Hulking.

For what it's worth, The Vigilante did a skin of him for Male Heavy.

Post by: Jimaras8 on September 19, 2017, 07:01:59 AM
Sorry to post unrelated questions here but since this thread is already more like a question pot, i figured it wouldn't exactly hurt.

1) Does the Stone material influences stun resistance? I thought i had seen it somwhere. If a character is made of stone does he get stunned harder?


2) I recently found an unused fx in my file called fire bullet and i put it in the FFEdit. I noticed there is a delay of 1-2 seconds between when the bullet hits and when the enemies get the damage. Does it have to do with me labeling a "projectile" instead of "explosive projectile" or does it have to do with FF1 files having a delay in FF2?
Title: Re: Issue 41: a couple of random questions

Title: Re: Issue 41: a couple of random questions
Post by: Cyber Burn on September 19, 2017, 11:37:01 AM
I should clarify, if you replace the "End.Nif" in your FX with one from FFvt3R, the delay should disappear.

1) Does the Stone material influences stun resistance? I thought i had seen it somwhere. If a character is made of stone does he get stunned harder?

Any resistance to an attack makes your character reduce the chance of being stunned by half. So if a crushing attack has a 50% chance to stun, a stone character, or anybody else resistant to crushing attacks, would only be stunned 25% of the time. Highly Resistant reduces that stun by half again, so the stun would be reduced to 12%.


2) I recently found an unused fx in my file called fire bullet and i put it in the FFEdit. I noticed there is a delay of 1-2 seconds between when the bullet hits and when the enemies get the damage. Does it have to do with me labeling a "projectile" instead of "explosive projectile" or does it have to do with FF1 files having a delay in FF2?

If you are using a standard projectile as an "explosive", i.e. giving it a radius, then there will be a delay. Setting the fx to an "Explosive Projectile" in FFEdit will get rid of the delay. If it is already an Explosive Projectile in FFEdit, then it is a problem with the End.nif, as Cyber pointed out.

Darn, how didn't i think of the end.nif. I have already done it more than once. Stupid brain. Thanks for reminding me guys. The fx is already explosive, the bullet causes a fire explosion in the end. I just need to find the same fx for the end.nif.

Hello guys. I'm in desperate need of some help as a problem has caused my game to freeze just before Rumble Room. I will take things from the beginning and tell you the whole story. As you know Benton is using a very useful trick to save a slot for characters that use Active Defenses. He basically turns those powers to attributes by giving the characters the FF Active Defense atrribute which links to entries in the ffxcustom2.py file. Me and Benton had a back anf forth in ordr for him to explain to me how this works but obviously, i did something wrong. So, i have a graviton hero file i want to add to the characters.dat and i basically want to make his AD an attribute so i can save a slot and give him a Passive Defense. I deleted the AD in his file and replaced it with the a PD of my liking, i put an AI on him and added him to the dat file.

After that i went to FFEdit and i found bmagneto shield that Benton has built because it was really close to the AD i wanted to give graviton. I copied the power, renamed it mvgraviton shield, changed the fx and animation and saved it. Grviton already having the FF Active Defense 75 i thought the only thing left to9 do was add a line in the ffxcustom2.py. I opened the file, found the AD section and added a line that looked like that:
["mvgraviton","Gravitational_Field","mvgraviton shield",35,"Moveable","Regenerate","Remote",33,"No",0],

What did i do wrong? Did i miss something in the code or did i skip a step? Bnton ha made this work in the game and i'm sure many of you know this method as well. The game froze when i pressed the Rumble Room button and stuck there. Before this even half an hour before i start this whole undertaking it played perfectly fine. So, what went wrong. I'm really frustrated because i had to install a previous version of the MA mod and i los a ton of changes and characters i had added.

Okay, here are a few possibilities:

Did you brand him?
You've double checked all the names?
Try putting an _ in your mvgraviton_shield power name and shortening the name, maybe mvgraviton_s. 

You've removed the line from FFXCustom2 and tested to see if it works without it?

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 26, 2017, 03:10:03 PM
Before i put any character into the dat i brand them through the CC, create an AI for them and them add them to the dat by the add to dat too in the RR menu. Your entry was bmagneto_shield, am i right Benton. It's almost the same length although i can shorten it and see if it works. So far are the steps correct? have i missed anything? I put him Active Defense 75 like you put in Magneto.

Everything is in the game CB. I finally made it work. I don't know how, i followed Benton's suggestion and changed the name of the AD to mvgraviton_s and it worked. The AD is exactly how i want it both in duration, animation and resistances. This darn things has been torturing me for over a month so finally it's over. Thank you for all your help and advice guys. I think i learned a new thing today so one less pain on your behind  :thumbup:

Post by: spydermann93 on October 27, 2017, 02:46:31 AM
Ah ha! I was just toying around with this two days ago. Here's what you do:

1. Open datfiles.py in PythonWin (you should have this if you have the Ghosting script fix)
2. Select File>Run while having the datfiles.py window selected
3. Execute Campaign_ChangeActiveDefenceDuration(stringPower, intDuration [0=short, 1=med, 2=long, 3=inf], '../../powers.dat', 0)
   Example: Campaign_ChangeActiveDefenceDuration('rpg_testshield', 3, '../../powers.dat', 0) #This makes rpg_testshield have Infinite Duration
4. Exit and load the game (You'll get a crash, otherwise!) VERY IMPORTANT!

ShowAllActiveDefenceDurations('../../powers.dat') will show all defenses and their durations


A few things:

1. I like to set the duration to 3 in the python function so that I can put whatever I want for the duration in FFX_CUSTOM2.py. 3 is infinite length, so you shouldn't ever have to mess around with the AD after this.
2. It really doesn't matter if you have a space or not in the power name. Just preference, really.
3. You will have to add the AI Tactic to your m25ai file, or your hero will NOT use the ability when played by the AI
4. If you ever alter your AD in FFEdit, you MUST rerun the Campaign_ChangeActiveDefenceDuration() function call again (see step 3 above)

I hope this all helps you! This should get you using your FFActiveDefenses more :thumbup:

Ok, spyder you kinda lost me there. I didn't change anything in  the datfiles.py and the power still workis in game without crashes. Do i still need to do that?


Also i have no idea where the m25ai file is or how to add the Ai tactic  :P. Every AI i have made is through the AI generator in-game.


Edit: Ok if i understand this correctly the campaignchangeactivedefense function is if you want the AD to be longer than 10 seconds. In my case 10 seconds is exactly the duration i want. So, do i still need to do the first paragraph that spyder wrote?

Ok, so you won't actually modify anything in the datfiles.py.

Do you have anything that can run python scripts? If not, download this: http://www.mediafire.com/file/8pvl4i96grgqu6l/FFvtTR_Ghosting_Fix.zip

In it, there will be a readme file. Go ahead and follow the instructions in that file. After you go through it, you will have PythonWin installed.

From there, you will right-click on the datfiles.py in your ffx3/Missions/Scripts folder and select "Edit with PythonWin"

Once that window is up, follow the instructions above.

While you might have this particular AD working just the way you want it, there might be some ADs that you'll want to last longer than 10 seconds. Following the method in my previous post will allow for ADs that have Medium (20) and Long (30) durations, and more.

Another technique is just creating a dummy character in EZHero, give that character an AD that is exactly how you like it, then import that character with EZHero. That will put the AD in the game, but if you ever edit that power in FFEdit, you'll have to import the AD again.

As for the m25AI tactic for FFAD, you can find it in the ffx3/Manual/index.html file. Just open that file in any browser of your choice and go to the AI Tactics section. There is a LOT to learn in there and it's a really good read.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 27, 2017, 05:15:27 PM
Ah, pythonwin, i have that and i have used the ghost fix before. It's a good method to remember. My main concern now is the m25ai tactic. if i understand it correctly if i don't put it in when the character is controlled by the AI he won't use the AD even if it's fully functional? That's a problem considering graviton is a glass cannon. So i go to the tactic section and i will know what i need to do next?
Title: Re: Issue 44: Active Defense Coding problem.
Post by: Jimaras8 on October 27, 2017, 05:31:52 PM
I'm sorry another thing i need to clarify. In the tactics when i should put the power name does it mean the FFEdit power name? graviton's AD is called mvgraviton_s in FFedit.

You shouldn't have to specify it in the tactics

Here's what you use for FFActiveDefense:

Code: [Select]
"TActiveDefenseFFRemote(pct=50, time=3, energy=33, mindist=0, maxdist=200, type='friend', subtype='not active_defense', situation='none', role='none', priority='medium')",

Use the FF Active Defense Remotely on an ally.

"TActiveDefenseFFSelf(pct=100, time=3, energy=33, mindist=0, maxdist=400, type='enemy', subtype='none', situation='not active_defense', role='none', priority='medium')",

Use the FF Active Defense on yourself.

You can adjust all of the parameters, but since a character can only have one FFActiveDefense, there is no need to specify any names.

This tactic is NOT to be confused with the ActiveDefense tactic:

Code: [Select]
"TActiveDefense('power name', pct=80, time=3, energy=None, mindist=0, maxdist='long', type='enemy', subtype='none', situation='not displaced', role='none', priority='high', defense_time=None)",
Notice that this tactic is TActiveDefense() while the tactic for the FFActiveDefense attribute is TActiveDefenseFFRemote() or TActiveDefenseFFSelf()

I'm really glad you got it working, Jim!  I am far from certain, but I wonder if the culprit might be the space in the name.  Despite the fact that the default powers have spaces, FFEdit and the system sometimes doesn't like spaces.  I try to avoid them in whatever I do.  You're right in that it shouldn't have been the name length, but I was grasping at straws.

Thanks for the duration change instructions, Spyder!  I've always just copied an existing AD that I knew was the length I wanted, because that functionality is missing from FFEdit.

Also, thanks for the AI info!  I need that as well!

Copying the power, at least in my experience, has always reset the Active Defense length to short. Using that script was the only way I could get an FFAD to be longer than 10 seconds.

Now, I haven't fully and extensively tested that, but maybe the original active defenses don't get their length changed when copied?

And don't thank me on the m25AI info. It's all in that wonderful manual. There are a lot of really good nuggets of info in there, and it's just amazing that so much documentation was written for it. Big props to Dr Mike and M25! If anybody else has written to that doc, my thanks to you guys and gals, too!

EDIT: I took a look at the FFADs in your MA mod, Benton, and it does seem like you're right! That's really handy to know. Perhaps it's just when you save an ffactivedefense that it resets to short? hmmm...

Ok spyder just one more thing before i put it in the m25aidata file. If i just copy/paste the line you posted in the graviton section without any specification since it's his only FF Active Defense will it work? Also does it matter if paste the line in the end or in the middle of the section. Graviton's section btw looks like this:

['mvgraviton',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_crushing',
      'not staticked',
      'weakness_ranged_crushing',
      'weakness_area_crushing',

Post by: spydermann93 on October 28, 2017, 03:39:48 PM
Yes, it will be the only AD he'll use since you can only have one FFActiveDefense on a character at a time.

Placement only matters if you want to alter the "priority" of the power. What happens is that the AI will go down the list of powers in the AI file and randomly land on one. Powers higher on the list will typically be used more often, but you can alter the parameters of the power to give it a higher priority.

Typically, defenses are usually placed right before the offensive powers, but after the "flee melee" lines and the occasional FFX attributes, but you can place it wherever you want it. Below is a very simple example:

['mvgraviton',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_crushing',
      'not staticked',
      'weakness_ranged_crushing',
      'weakness_area_crushing',
      'weakness_direct_crushing',
   ],
   ["timer", 'auto',
      'TUseRemedy()',
      "TFleeMelee(mindist='medium',movetype='fly',time=0.88)",
      'TFleeMelee(type="any",subtype="emitting_damage",time=0.88)',
      'TTK()',
      TActiveDefenseFFSelf(time=3, type='enemy', situation='not active_defense')
      'TArea("mvgraviton newton\'s theory",time=1.27)',
      "TArea('mvgraviton gravitational hold',time=2.07)",
      'TArea("mvgraviton jupiter\'s gravity",time=1.27)',
      "TDirect('mvgraviton 200 g-force',time=1.27)",
      "TRanged('mvgraviton graviton blast',time=1.27)",
      "TDirect('mvgraviton 0 g-force',time=1.27)",
      "TDirect('mvgraviton graviton cocoon',time=1.27)",
      "TRanged('mvgraviton maximum gravity be',time=1.27)",
      "TMelee('mvgraviton megalomaniac punch',time=1.4)",
      'TLand()',
      'TMoveTo(mindist=\'long\' ,subtype="not emitting_damage",time=0.88)',

Ok, so i put Spyder's line in the m25aidata and he now uses the AD in-game although sparingly. The file looks like that:

['mvgraviton',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_crushing',
      'not staticked',
      'weakness_ranged_crushing',
      'weakness_area_crushing',
      'weakness_direct_crushing',
   ],
   ["timer", 'auto',
      'TUseRemedy()',
      "TFleeMelee(mindist='medium',movetype='fly',time=0.88)",
      'TFleeMelee(type="any",subtype="emitting_damage",time=0.88)',
      'TTK()',
                "TActiveDefenseFFSelf(time=3,type='enemy',situation='not active_defense')",
      'TArea("mvgraviton newton\'s theory",time=1.27)',
      "TArea('mvgraviton gravitational hold',time=2.07)",
      'TArea("mvgraviton jupiter\'s gravity",time=1.27)',
      "TDirect('mvgraviton 200 g-force',time=1.27)",
      "TRanged('mvgraviton graviton blast',time=1.27)",

      "TMelee('mvgraviton megalomaniac punch',time=1.4)",
      'TLand()',
      'TMoveTo(mindist=\'long\' ,subtype="not emitting_damage",time=0.88)',

In order for him to use it more do i have to add a priority value in the end? Make it priority=high?

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 30, 2017, 08:33:12 AM
Unfortunately it didn't  :(. I put a priority='high' in the end of the sentence and it caused him to not use it all in-game. In order for you to get the picture in an average 10 minute RR of Absorbing Man (me) vs Graviton (AI) graviton used the AD 3-4 before the priority line. After i put it in the end he didn't use the power at all. I also noticed that after the altering he didn't chase me throughout the man and stayed in one spot. Something changed int he AI? Again for reference this is how graviton's ai looks in the m25aidata file:

['mvgraviton',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_crushing',
      'not staticked',
      'weakness_ranged_crushing',

Hey Jim,

Try something like this line:

"TActiveDefenseFFSelf(pct=60,mindist=100,time=4,,situation=['not active_defense','higherenergy 66'],priority=50)",

Also, make sure that you don't have the power tabbed like your text. I'm not sure if it's that way in your m25ai file, but try keeping all of the lines aligned.

For example, here's my Spider-Man file:

Code: [Select]
['m spider-man',
["target enemy",
'weakness_melee_crushing',
'not staticked',
'weakness_ranged_crushing',
],
["timer", 'auto',
'TUseRemedy()',
"TActiveDefenseFFSelf(pct=60,mindist=100,time=4,,situation=['not active_defense','higherenergy 66'],priority=50)",
'TFleeMelee(type="any",subtype="emitting_damage",time=3)',
"TRangedCone('funnel web',time=3)",
"TMelee('acrobatic spider',time=2.84)",
"TRanged('tangling webs',time=3)",
"TRanged('web bullet',time=3)",
"TMelee('spidey sting',time=2.8)",
'TThrow(pickup_time=3,throw_time=3)',
'TMoveTo(mindist=\'medium\' ,subtype="not emitting_damage",time=3)',
],
]

EDIT: Also, if you need any help with this, Cyber, just let me know and I'll do my best to assist ya. I'm in the process of learning how this all works, but I *think* I'm starting to get a handle on it.

The thing is that my AD has 33 energy cost and i prefer it this way so will this change the cost of the power? Oh and the lines are perfectly aligned in the file, it's just a weird thing that happens when i paste it here.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 31, 2017, 09:30:48 AM
Copied/pasted the line exactly as you wrote it spyder and it didn't work. now he floats completely inactive.

Edit: I don't know if it's any help to you spyder but so far the only line that has worked sufficiently in-game was the first one you gave me when only the necessary values:
"TActiveDefenseFFSelf(time=3, type='enemy', situation='not active_defense')

The only problme i had with this one was the frequency he used the AD. otherwise he was moving and using all his abilities. I don't know if this helps clear this whole situation up.

I'm wondering if it's because he is flying. I notice that whenever I have my characters use it (when controlled by me), they land before using the power.

My Spider-Man has Rope-Swinger, so he lands after a while, and it may have been coincidental. I'll have to play around with it some more.
Title: Re: Issue 44: Active Defense Coding problem.
Post by: Jimaras8 on November 01, 2017, 07:13:17 AM
Yes there is something weird about it. When i play the character and every character with a FF AD they have to land to use it. Graviton as AI can use it in the air. It's weird.

Post by: spydermann93 on November 05, 2017, 06:10:25 PM
Ok, so I was fiddling around with it and I think I found the answer.

In the m25ai.py file, there is a function that handles how the AI uses the TActiveDefenseFFSelf() tactic:

Code: [Select]
def TActiveDefenseFFSelf(tactic_id, char, object, flt, user, pct=50, time=1, energy=None, mindist=0, maxdist=200, type='enemy', subtype='none', situation='none', role='none', priority=TACTIC_PRIORITY_MEDIUM):
if ffx.FFX_ObjectGetAttr(char,'ffactivedefenseMaxHP')==0:
return 0
target = Target_GetCurrentTarget(char,type,subtype)
defense_time = ffx.getByTemplate(char,FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM,3)
power = ffx.getByTemplate(char,FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM,2)
epCost = ffx.getByTemplate(char,FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM,7)
if not AISupport_CheckConditions(char, target, Target_GetDistance(char,type), pct, priority, mindist, maxdist, subtype, situation, role, energy=epCost):
return 0
if ffx.FFX_ObjectGetAttr(char,'ffactivedefenseSelf',0)==1:
return 0
turnTo(char,target)
AISupport_DoFunction(char, 'ffx.OnffActiveDefense(%s,%s)'%(`char`,`char`), target, priority, time, desc='ff active defense')
AddRole(char,power)
AddRole(char,'active_defense')
ffx.FFX_ObjectSetAttr(char,'ffactivedefenseSelf',1)
m25event.SetTimer(defense_time,'AIActiveDefenseOff',char,power)
return 1

There is also a function that dictates how the AI handles the TActiveDefense() tactic:

Code: [Select]
def AIGenericActiveDefense(tactic_id, char, object, flt, user, power='', defense_time=20, pct=80, time=3, energy=0, mindist=0, maxdist=m25distance.DISTANCE_LONG, type=TARGET_ENEMY, subtype=None, situation=None, role=None, priority=TACTIC_PRIORITY_HIGH, desc='active defense'):
target = Target_GetCurrentTarget(char)
if not AISupport_CheckConditions(char,target,Target_GetDistance(char),pct,priority,mindist,maxdist,subtype,situation,role,energy):
return 0
AISupport_DoSelfPowerTimed(char, power, target, priority, time, desc)
AddRole(char,power)
AddRole(char,'active_defense')
m25event.SetTimer(defense_time,'AIActiveDefenseOff',char,power)
return 1

Notice that there is a difference in the parameters of the two functions. AIGenericActiveDefense() has a pct of 80 and a priority of HIGH while TActiveDefenseFFSelf() has a pct of 50 and a priority of MEDIUM. Well, I copied those parameters from TActiveDefense() and this is what I got:

Code: [Select]
def TActiveDefenseFFSelf(tactic_id, char, object, flt, user, pct=80, time=1, energy=None, mindist=0, maxdist=200, type='enemy', subtype='none', situation='none', role='none', priority=TACTIC_PRIORITY_HIGH):
if ffx.FFX_ObjectGetAttr(char,'ffactivedefenseMaxHP')==0:
return 0
target = Target_GetCurrentTarget(char,type,subtype)
defense_time = ffx.getByTemplate(char,FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM,3)
power = ffx.getByTemplate(char,FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM,2)
epCost = ffx.getByTemplate(char,FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM,7)
if not AISupport_CheckConditions(char, target, Target_GetDistance(char,type), pct, priority, mindist, maxdist, subtype, situation, role, energy=epCost):
return 0
if ffx.FFX_ObjectGetAttr(char,'ffactivedefenseSelf',0)==1:
return 0
turnTo(char,target)
AISupport_DoFunction(char, 'ffx.OnffActiveDefense(%s,%s)'%(`char`,`char`), target, priority, time, desc='ff active defense')
AddRole(char,power)
AddRole(char,'active_defense')
ffx.FFX_ObjectSetAttr(char,'ffactivedefenseSelf',1)
m25event.SetTimer(defense_time,'AIActiveDefenseOff',char,power)
return 1

Once I got that written, I also went to my heroName.m25ai file and added this line:

Code: [Select]
"TActiveDefenseFFSelf(time=2.0,situation='not active_defense')",
It is very simple, but it's all that I need for right now.

I launched the game and tested it, and now the AI actively uses and reuses the FFActiveDefense! Hurray!

One thing to note is that the AI will wait, at a minimum, the amount of time that you specified in your FFX_FFACTIVEDEFENSE_CUSTOM section of the ffxcustom2.py file to use the FFActiveDefense again. I'm going to toy around with it some more to try and get the AI to reuse the FFActiveDefense as soon as its HP runs out, but I don't think that this function is updated every second like the functions in the ffx.py.

For those that want the AI to prioritize FFActiveDefense, here's the file: http://www.mediafire.com/file/em98ivdiulf53dd/m25ai.zip

This looks like a lot of homework spyder. Sorry i wnet AIWOL everyone, my studies were left behind and i had to catch up. I have played in over a month so now that i have some free time i can test spyder's results. I have to tell you spyder this thing has been a pain, hasn't it  :D.


Anyway, i have a huge favor to ask. I have LP's excellent Baslisk skope but it does't have keyframes for ranged eye attacks. Basilisk's main power are his optic blasts so it's a little weird that he has animations that use his hands. is it possible for someone to add some eye animations like Gren's Superman has?

Depends.

If it's a custom character, it goes to the same place as your hero files.

If it's a built-in character (or one that gets imported), you can find all of their AI data in the "modname/Missions/Scripts/m25aidata.py" file.

I asked you because i went to my local folder and i found a mvgraviton.m25ai file. I guess it remained since the time he was a custom character before i added him to the dat. So if i get this straight since i haven't played with pys for over a month. If i just replace the m25.ai file in the scripts folder with the one you made and i just add the line you added in the character's ai file, i'm done?

1) Yeah, it's just left-over. It is no longer used for Graviton, so you can remove it. You can now see Graviton has his own section in the m25aidata.py file. That's the section that you'll want to modify from now on (since he's built-in).

2) Yeah, you can replace it. Unless you've made your own changes to the file, it should bother anything. Just make sure that you make a backup of your current m25ai.py file, just in case.

3) Then yeah, you can add the line that I have to Graviton's section in the m25aidata.py file. He should be using his FFActiveDefenses if everything was modified correctly.

Itís actually a simple fix, really. Just check the dimensions of the DDS Files, usually itís just the Refl and Glow, and make sure that they are both multiples of 4. I usually try to use 64x64. Then, to avoid any further issues, make sure that those files are also solid black, and then you should be good to go.

You may just need to add an End.nif to each of the FXís Folders, one to the Hammer, and one to the Sickle.

Post by: daglob on January 19, 2018, 08:23:35 PM
In the past there have been people who discussed swapping beginning, core, and end .nifs; you might just take an end .nif and drop in there. Maybe like the FX that has a "THUD" at the end for the hammer and the one that goes "SHHHHHHHRK" for the scythe.

You probably should look up the original thread before you try something.
Title: Re: Issue 47: Vanguard_gren FX problem
Post by: Cyber Burn on January 20, 2018, 09:10:32 AM
Basically, you don't actually have to "create" a new End.nif, all you need to do is find one you like, copy it, and paste it into the folder with the Core.nif. If you decide you don't like the way it looks together, just replace the End.nif with another one and try again. No harm was done.

Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: Jimaras8 on January 23, 2018, 08:07:11 PM
Just today i noticed a problem that i should have spotted a long time ago. As some of you may know i have made an usa major hero file that involves the shapeshifter attribute along with a bear form. When i play with him the ssecond form works fine but just today i thought about playing against him.

What i discovered is that he doesn't transform. The AI probably doesn't give him the command to use the shapeshifter attribute. Here how he looks in m25aidata:

Human form:
['ursa major',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_crushing',
      'not blind',
      'weakness_ranged_fire',
   ],
   ["timer", 'auto',
      'TUseRemedy()',
      "TFleeMelee(mindist='medium',movetype='move',time=0.88)",
      'TFleeMelee(type="any",subtype="emitting_damage",time=0.88)',
      "TRally('ursa_major the motherland cal',type='friend',time=2.15)",
      "TRangedExplosive('ursa_major m67 grenade',time=1.91)",
      "TRangedExplosive('ursa_major smoke grenade',time=1.91)",
      "TMelee('ursa_major soviet onslaught',time=1.95)",
      'TShapeShift()',
      "TMelee('ursa_major russian strike',time=1.4)",
      'TMoveTo(mindist=\'long\' ,subtype="not emitting_damage",time=0.88)',

Bear form:
['ursa bear',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_piercing',
      'not panicked',
      'not flying',
   ],
   ["timer", 'auto',
      'TUseRemedy()',
      'TFleeMelee(type="any",subtype="emitting_damage",time=0.72)',
      "TSpeedingBullet('ursa_bear grizzly charge',time=0.72)",
      "TMeleeArea('ursa_bear vicious mauling',time=1.55)",
      "TArea('ursa_bear grizzly roar',time=2.39)",
      "TMelee('ursa_bear soviet jaws',time=1.2)",
      "TMelee('ursa_bear kamchatka squash',time=2.2)",
      "TMelee('ursa_bear bear hug',time=1.19)",
      'TShapeShift()',
      "TMelee('ursa_bear bear mark',time=1.4)",
      'TThrow(pickup_time=3.04,throw_time=2.63)',
      'TMoveTo(mindist=\'short\',time=0.72,subtype=["not emitting_damage","flying"])',
      'TMoveTo(mindist="melee",subtype=["not emitting_damage","not flying"],time=0.72)',
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: detourne_me on January 23, 2018, 10:00:51 PM
For a character like Ursa Major I would actually go a different route than shapeshifter. Id give the human form tye Accidental Change attribute set to enraged for the trigger. Then give him the special power that enrages him to manually trigger the change. You could also give him the berserk attribute so he changes with random damage, too.
I believe with the accidental change attribute you can set a condition for him to revert, too. L>ke after 1 minute or after he gets stunned.
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: Jimaras8 on January 24, 2018, 08:34:09 AM
It's a great suggestion dm but i don't think it fits my case. The character is already branded and added to the dat so messing with the attributes will be a little pain. Moreover, the version i have in my head is that Ursus has been trained since childhood to be a Soviet Super Soldier and has great control over his form, far more than Hulk or Werewolf by night for example. So rage isn't really his trigger. Your idea is very interesting, though.


The only solution in my issue is for the AI to recognize and activate the shapeshifter attribute. I know for a fact it can be done since Ursa Major is added to the MA mod and Benton has already made it work with Snowbird. He has given her the shapeshifter attribute and when the AI controls her she instantly switches between wolf, human and bear forms.
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: BentonGrey on January 24, 2018, 03:47:20 PM
Howdy Jim, I wish I had some good advice for you, but I'm afraid I didn't do anything fancy with Snowbird.  I just generated her AI with the tool and didn't touch it, same for Absorbing Man and other Shape Shifters.  I've discovered that, though they do work, sometimes the AI chokes or makes weird choices.  You could just try moving the SS entry up near the top of the AI form.  That way it will be given more priority. 
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: Jimaras8 on January 24, 2018, 07:18:57 PM
Ugh, this is so frustrating. Every week i have another issue to solve. if it wasn't for my love for superheroes i would have given up long ago.

It doesn't make any sense Benton. I modeled ursa's transformation after your Snowbird. The same attribute. Shapeshifter and temporary form for the transformation. I generated the AI and put him in the game.  Yet, while snowbird transforms instantly, ursa remains stubbornly human. This is getting quite frustrating.
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: BentonGrey on January 24, 2018, 07:35:10 PM
If I had to guess, it might have something to do with Ursa's human form having more powers than Snowbird.  I definitely recommend moving the shapeshifter entry higher up the AI list.  It's at least something to try.
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: Jimaras8 on January 24, 2018, 07:38:04 PM
I already did it. It looks like that:
['ursa major',
   ['target enemy',
      'weakness_melee_crushing',
      'not blind',
      'weakness_ranged_fire',
   ],
   ["timer", 'auto',
      'TUseRemedy()',
      "TFleeMelee(mindist='medium',movetype='move',time=0.88)",
      'TFleeMelee(type="any",subtype="emitting_damage",time=0.88)',
                'TShapeShift()',
      "TRally('ursa_major the motherland cal',type='friend',time=2.15)",
      "TRangedExplosive('ursa_major m67 grenade',time=1.91)",
      "TRangedExplosive('ursa_major smoke grenade',time=1.91)",
      "TMelee('ursa_major soviet onslaught',time=1.95)",
      "TMelee('ursa_major russian strike',time=1.4)",
      'TMoveTo(mindist=\'long\' ,subtype="not emitting_damage",time=0.88)',
   ],
],

He still doesn't transform...

Edit: Don't be deceived by the placement of the line. In the file it's perfectly aligned with the other lines. It's the just the forum that acts funny.
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: BentonGrey on January 25, 2018, 04:07:12 AM
Hmm...something's off then.  Try rebranding and regenerating the AI, I'd say, but that's all I've got.  Ohh, if you've built him in, check what AI is listed on his character tab.  It's possible that is overriding the custom one.

Where is that character tab exactly? I might have a brainfreeze at this moment  :lol:. Also if the character is branded and in the dat is it wise to delete him? Don't i have to deleted every power, template and defense from the FFEdit as well?
Title: Re: Issue 48: Shapeshifter problem
Post by: BentonGrey on January 25, 2018, 02:28:16 PM
Jim, I'm referring to the character tab in FFEdit, 4th from the left.  And deleting them should be fine.  You don't necessarily need to delete all of their powers, and, in fact, if you're just going to delete the character/template, run the CC, and then re-add the character/template manually and rerun CC, you won't need to delete anything else.

Oh, you mean in FFEdit. I thought there was another character tab in the scripts folder with ais. My bad. I went to FFEdit and changed his ai from zerocost to cgenerichero like you have for snowbird benton. Still doesn't work. fair to say, this is getting really frustrating.

So my best bet is to delete the character, generate the ais again and then add him to the dat?

Post by: Jimaras8 on January 28, 2018, 01:45:03 PM
So, it seems another problem has arisen  :banghead:, the same one i had with the character years ago. When i have both forms as custom files and try to connect them in the CC, the game crashes when i try to transform. The only way it works is if i brand them both, add them AND THEN after they ae added tot he dat i put ursa bear as Ursa major's temporary form. The outcome of this while i can use the character and make him transform in game like i did all this time, the ai doesn't give him the command to transform which brings us to me original problem.


Benton, it would be  TREMENDOUS help if you could walk me through your process with your snowbird since they are so similar, yet your works perfectly fine. So, you created the main snowbird form and gave her the SS attribute, correct? Then you created hero files for her secondary forms, right? After that do you remember going to the CC and putting the bear and wolf as her secondary forms BEFORE branding all files?

Hello gang. I'm back with a vengeance after military duties and i'm hungry for some good ol' character building. My latest attempt is MCU Ebony Maw and his cool tk powers. I was wonder if it was possible to create a cone fxx that doesn't have a visual fx attached much like the dummy_ffx that is for projectiles. My goal is to make a tk cone to represent Maw's powers.

Second is there any way t create a pulling power? I know there is the swap state option in the FFX CC but somehow it doesn't work. I have given Maw a decrease power that has a state swap for pull in the CC and the target isn't moving towards my character.

Those are the two issues i have. I'm looking forward to your feedback and thanks in advance  :D

Welcome back, Jim!

For the FX question, I'm not 100% sure. It might be possible. I typically just use the shockwave FX for my tk cones, though, so I've never really tested it.

For the pull question, make sure that the attack is a projectile, beam, or melee attack. Cones, explosive projectiles, area, and direct powers do not work with FFX custom attacks.

Howdy Jim, and welcome back man!  I'm glad to see you and glad that you've come back ready to create more awesome stuff!  How was your service time?

As for your questions, other than what Spyder says, I don't have much to offer.  I think that the FX should be possible.  Honestly, if you just take a cone FX, hide it in nifskope, it should be invisible yet the game should still use it.

The pull and other state swaps can be a bit finicky.  In the DCUG at the moment, Atom I's swaps are working fine, while Mr. Terrific I's are not.  Go figure.  I have had some luck with adding custom entries in FFXCustom.py, even if I'm not tweaking anything.  And, of course, don't forget to brand (and make sure you don't have extra civilian templates when you do).

You might want to check and make sure that Mr Terrific's FFX power swaps haven't been removed. If a swap isn't handled by the Control Centre, it might have been replaced in your ffxcustom.py

It's good to see you both again. Service time wasn't the best Benton but it had to be done so  :thumbup:. I don't know how to hide a cone fx in nifskope, i'm afraid i only use nifskope for kfs and maybe some weapon nodes from time to time.

Spyder, i think the key is that i used a direct power. I will switch to beam and see if the state swap works. is there a way to increase the distance in the pull?

Post by: BentonGrey on May 29, 2018, 01:49:00 PM
Well, thank you for your service, my friend!  We're glad you're back!

Alright, so it is super easy to hide stuff in Nifskope.  Just open up the mesh, and for an FX, you want the core.nif, then click on the think you want to hide, find where it is selected in the menu on the left, right click on it, choose "Flags" and check the box next to "hidden."  That's it.  The object should vanish.  If you need to unhide something, select the dropdown menu "Render" and choose "Show Hidden."  Then merely select the object again and uncheck the hidden box.

Spyder i know you are a savant of the ais and the overall coding of the game. Have you figured out a way to increase the distance of the pull state swap? It would really useful i think, like a reverse knockback power.

I'm positive it's a Cmdrkoening map, a DS map, and I feel like it was released under the name ds_snowy_rockies or something along that line.  I'm traveling and can't send it to Jim, but I hope someone out there has it.

I'm afraid there is no such map in the Fxforce mediafire folders Benton. The close is snowy_forest and snowy_forest_2 and they are completely different maps. In the ds_map section there neither snowy nor rockies. Are you positive you got the map from Fx Force?

Howdy Jim, sorry about the continued map troubles!  I've got no idea why the Rockies map would be crashing still.  If you still haven't figured it out by the time I get home, I'll try to give it a look.

The desert one should be a bit easier.  You'll just need to open the map in FFEdit and delete any of those turrets on it through the list.  You don't even need to open the 3D editor.

You could also create a template for it, if you wanted.  If so, you SHOULD find that template in my MA mod, I think, though I'm not sure.
Title: Re: Issue 52: Desert Fortress map error.
Post by: detourne_me on July 05, 2018, 04:21:17 AM
I think the issue might be because the textures point to the wrong folder, or something like that. If I'm not mistaken, I think Cmdr. Koenig used his Canadian Winter Airfield map textures for the Rockies map. There may be some issues there.

Benton i can see the turret_carrier template in the FFEdit in your MA mod. Do i have to copy it in the missions section or something? I would prefer the map to be complete  turrets and all. The thing is that when i load the second shield mission that has the desert_fortress i can see the turret_carrier in the mission.dat

As my previous message said, i managed to make the desert fortress map work but i would really like it if i could add the turrets he already had. I had to delete them because the FFEdit couldn't find the character template even though i could clearly see in the templates section. How can i add them back to the map in FFEdit and make them work?

I followed the instructions abut the number of leave_hand instances didn't increase although i saw a leave_hand_4 in the Character Tool. In-game the number stayed at 3. A question i have is if the values for the leave_hand keys need to have a consistent difference between them? Do they have to be 0.4000 then 0.8000, then 1.2000 or do can they be random?

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 15, 2018, 07:52:56 AM
Thanks to you and dm i figured out the process however the problem with the specific skope remains. Its nova_now_gren by sickalice btw. I havr noticed from my exprience that some skopes keyframes are "locked" in a way and you cant alter them in a way that appears in game. The process that both you and dm directed me works its just that specific one is locked.

I also tried to tinker with the melee kfs and take one of the secondary animations in  order to turn it into a new animation and it didnt appear in game. I know i have encountered this before, i just have no idea how to solve. If anyone wants to download the skope and have a look, it would be really helpful.
Title: Re: Issue 53: Adding more contacts to ranged animations
Post by: detourne_me on October 15, 2018, 10:45:11 AM
Are you sure that you saved your altered keyframes successfully? maybe you put the altered keyframes in the wrong folder.
I just skoped the keys for that mesh and had no problems adjusting the number of contacts for ranged animations.

what do you mean by secondary animations?
Title: Re: Issue 53: Adding more contacts to ranged animations
Post by: Jimaras8 on October 15, 2018, 06:34:33 PM
I mean melee_3_b, melee_3_c etc. I have noticed that when i make new animations for nova_now_gren like renaming melee_4_a to flying_melee or melee_5 they don't appear in-game. The leave_hand problem is part of this larger problem. I had this problem with a couple of other meshes in the past like spider-man_AA off the top of my head.

If you aren't seeing all of the keyframe changes you've been making, then that is most likely a "User Account Control" problem.

1) Go to your "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore" and see if you see a "Freedom Force" folder anywhere in there. If you do, move all of your stuff out of that folder to somewhere safe, like a folder on your desktop. Delete whatever remains.

2) In the search next to your Windows Start button, type "Change User Account Control settings". Once that opens up, slide the slider all the way down to "never notify." Click "Ok".

3) Now you can copy your saved files over to your FF installation. You should now see the changes take effect.

Post by: Jimaras8 on October 16, 2018, 07:13:44 PM
I think that wont he necessary spyder. Its a really weird situation but in think i figured it out. Apparently any change i make in the kfs doesnt appear when inview the skope in game unless i create a character out of it. So when i was viewing novasnskope in-game the changes didnt appear. However i have already a built in nova character in my dat file with a full hero file. The changes appeared fine there.
Title: Re: Issue 53: Adding more contacts to ranged animations
Post by: spydermann93 on October 16, 2018, 08:14:43 PM
Oh yeah, that would be another cause: having a built-in character.

Whenever you add a character to the dat folder (at least with m25's tools), it will copy the folder your character's nif is from. If you have a character folder inside of your mod's built-in mesh library, it will use that as the primary keys.

Just something else to keep an eye out for.

Okay, so there is a shadow that appears instead of the spike? 

The power did work correctly in the DCUG, last I checked.  I haven't looked at that, in particular, recently.  The fact that there is a shadow says to me that either A) the mesh in question is missing, or B) the mesh isn't displaying properly.  I'm not sure, though.

Hi Benton, good to see you noticed the thread. I wasn't able to look in the e-mails you sent me from last week due to my military duties and i had to be in my base for a few days. If you need anything pm me  :thumbup:

As for the bug i'm certain geomancer was able to use the spike in the DCUG so it definitely works there. In the MA the spike doesn't appear and the target doesn't receive any damage at all.
Title: Re: Issue 54: Spike from Earth Control attribute doesnt work!
Post by: BentonGrey on November 25, 2018, 03:20:30 AM
Well Jim, I'm glad I came across this, but I can't say I'm pleased to hear about more bugs in MA!  :P  Haha!  So, I've tested this, and the spike definitely isn't working in MA for me either.  I'm not getting anything, shadow or otherwise.  I've checked the mesh files, and they were indeed missing, though since it was calling on built-in files, that shouldn't matter. 

Nonetheless, I added the necessary objects.  Now, I'm getting the spikes to trigger, but not always.  It looks like the energy will get spent, but the character won't always actually trigger the ability.  I found that using it twice on the same target got it to go.  Would you do me a favor and test this on your end?  Just go to Data/Art/Library/Area_specific/underground/decor, and copy the rock_stalagmite folder to your MA directory under the same path.  Then try it out with someone like Terrax or Avalanche in the mod. 

Also, PM incoming!

Howdy guys. I hope you are all having a very merry christmas and overall a blast.

I know i have been awarded p lately due to milatary duties but im having a few days kff and i have a burning question to ask you.

Is it possible to increase the duration of the sleep state? I have noticed that characters stay down for about 5 seconds tops and i was thinking if it was possible to increase that.
Title: Re: Issue 55: Sleep state duration increase.
Post by: spydermann93 on December 24, 2018, 06:17:28 PM
Should be doable.

Sleep is affected by the power type you're swapping with, so something like Power Null will make the enemy sleep for a short time while something like Hypnosis will make them sleep longer.

In the "ffx2.py," you can find all of the code for the sleep attack swap. Look through there and you should be able to find a way to change the duration of the attack.
Title: Re: Issue 55: Sleep state duration increase.
Post by: Jimaras8 on December 24, 2018, 06:20:20 PM
Thanks a lot spyder for the quick reply  :thumbup:. So i take it you suggest hypnosis as the primary state for longer duration? I thought states were affected by the powers magnitude, the higher the damage the longer the effect.
Title: Re: Issue 55: Sleep state duration increase.
Post by: spydermann93 on December 24, 2018, 06:42:18 PM
No problem, man

Magnitude is the chance of the original effect happening. So a High Hypnosis attack just means that Hypnosis has a High chance of succeeding. Once the original effect succeeds, that's when the attack swap happens.

The ffx code looks at which type of attack is being swapped and replaces it with the swap attack. In this case, sleep. All swaps have different intensity values associated with each original effect type. Hypnosis is usually given the highest intensity because it is very expensive in-game while Weaken is very cheap, so it gets a very low intensity.

Those values can be found in ffx.py if I'm not mistaken.

Specifically i need the start.nif from the generic projectile 2 fx with green disk to have thr exact same color as the green lantern fxs. I can send anyone who has some basic knowledge about fxs the nifs to see for himself. The original color is a lighter green and i need it to be made deeper like green_mace_large for example.
