Finished Works and Works in Progress / Re: Anim8or in AGS game
« on: January 26, 2016, 04:47:56 pm »
Thanks for taking a look! I have no plans to do anything more with it. It was a passing thought about the January MAGS (monthly AGS game) topic, which was Black Death, as in the bubonic plague in Europe during the middle ages. AGS supports sounds, music, and voice acting, but I didn't use any of them. I never got the dialog to work quite like I wanted it to, and I pretty much stayed with the BASS template that comes with the engine and allows noobs to make something that resembles an actual game. It was, very much, a learning experience.

I used Anim8or for a very short AGS Game (point and click adventure game).

Link (not sure this will work, noob at MediaFire):

The game name is Luther in the Hood, but the executable file is afroTest4 (my fault).

Made the models and rendered the 2D animations with Anim8or. Imported the stills and animations into AGS. Game is nothing to write home about, but looks like Anim8or is an good fit for AGS. Used build 1201 for this, and enjoying the hell out of the "trackballs!"

What happened to version 9? I heard people could upgrade to version 8 quite sometime back and now version 10? Slow down Microsoft!

I believe Microsoft skipped version 9 to avoid confusion with Win95/98, which were sometimes referred to as 9x, or 9.x. Might be wrong.

hi Jwalt,

 Looks interesting.
I need to figure out the transitional element here,
Getting the gif animation onto the surface was labor intensive.
Wondering how you did this so far?

I generated a fly around of the model in Bryce and saved the images (around 44) as bmps. I then went back and forth between object and scene, changing the texture on the cube I was using to display the image, and then taking the shot. Worked, but is prone to making mistakes. I think I've done as much as I'm going to do with it:

I goofed on the fist, and wound up with a southpaw.

I need to figure out the transitional element here, but this is what I have at the moment:

Bryce render for the fly-around of a gas-station modeled in Anim8or. The render above is from Anim8or. Getting the gif animation onto the surface was labor intensive. Wish there were an easier way, but don't think there is.

These are not questions to answer, but show the complexities that a Newbie has to face.

Back to my question, How do I apply light blue to every face with only one Materials "Apply" mouse click.
I tried it with the simple box, same results, Some time it works and some time not!!


Sorry for the jpg image.

1 Select object point edit
2 Select  face select
3 Select drag select and draw a box around the cube (selects all faces)
4 Set up the color material you want and Apply

Selecting individual faces for a single application of material requires left click select for initial surface, followed by right clicks for additional selections. If you make a mistake, alt-right click will deselect the last selection. Note if you are using some of the later builds, it may well work differently.

 Last post, cow invited to dinner, funny.

Decided to make that Christmas Dinner

I should, probably, have extruded the white faces to simulate the fur trim, but I didn't want to sink any more time into this one.  ;-)

Ho, ho, ho... Merry Christmas, folks!

Oh man, jwalt, I know in the past I've told you I like your art style... Keep this stuff coming!

Thank you. I do get discouraged from time to time. Not Judge Judy related, but here's something:

The cow got invited to lunch, it appears.

 You might know some unemployed band members.

Had someone floating around, so I decided to put him to work:

Lol. Judge Judy. Nice one  jwalt
 Court room drama...Cow in court lol.
 Hows your lip syncing?. If you wanted some practice, a court room could be the place.....

 If you're, at the moment, just wanting to make a scene......i haven't seen judge judy for years....then i guess by watching an episode or 2 you'll see other things that need adding. (they have camera-men in the courtroom?)

I had not planned on lip synching anything, but it is worth a thought. You did motivate me to add a state-of-the-art camera to the scene:

Now, I need someone to operate the camera.    ;-)

Started tinkering around with this:

Not sure where it goes from here.

Out of curiosity, I just downloaded, unzipped, and launched 1115. I've not been grabbing the latest and the greatest, but thought I'd take a look and provide feedback on the not opening problem. It does seem to open and run on my system: Win7 Home Premium (SP1), with ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 series video). Made no changes to compatibility mode, since it opened with the default setting.

Working on this.

Hard to get the motions to look realistic. Then again, with a cow on drums, and a mouse on the synthesizer, what would realistic look like?

That is so sad.The problem I have is that I have 2 bones,which wont influence my model between two upper leg bones and lower torso bone,that have the same red color...  :o

I might be totally wrong, but in my experience, the colors are more of an aid to us than to the program. Just make sure you have the right red bone selected, and the vertex should get assigned to the correct group. You might also try the envelopes, although I prefer weight painting.

 Textured or untextured, it shouldn't matter.

I subdivided (smoothed), and now see what you are talking about. I hadn't noticed this before.
