  1. I can't say much about Max 7, though it is still on my outdated XP Machine which is prone to be abandoned soon, but Max 9 does work on Windows 10 without fuss. At least this is true for Max9 on Windows 10 / 32 Bit. No surprises here but in a few days i hopefully get my Win 10/64 bit machine and can tell more about Max 9.

  2. I'm not quite sure what issue you mean. There is a seam in the ground texture if thats the problem...

    But note that the renderer in the editor differs a lot from the ingame engine, so its best to have a look at the same area inside the game. 

    If in doubt, you could post your 'Terrain.con' and possibly your 'Sky.con' and we have a look.

  3. If you want them still to take damage from weapons this is a tricky action - you'd need to manipulate the materialmanager setting and find the collision pair for Heli Material to Heli Material. If you mod this to 0 (zero) damage, two helis can collide without taking damage.

    If you only want them to be invincible, all you need to do is to set the Hitpoints and the MaxHitPoints to an incredible high number (like 99999).

  4. It should be possible if you manage to extract the player id from the array. The backdraw is that you cannot really block him from entering but only can damage him (at least thats what we've done in XWW2). To warn the player we insert the skull sign (deady mine in vicinity) in his HUD.

    One more problem is that you have to insert the ID to block somehow into the python script, which could perhaps be done by reading a text file or so.

    As we used the script to forbid certain kits from entering certain vehicles we had no need to dynamically change the player to block.

  5. Well, well - i'd given bfeditor.org up for dead and haven't been here for a long time until Catbox spammed my EMail account with notifications, hehehe. Well it's good to have the site back, thanks Detrux. I've browsed through the tutorial threads and from what i saw, there's everything allright and no harm done except for some old references to non-existent servers from long time ago.

  6. Yes, AIX changes Weapon indices to their own needs and they will then conflict with any BF2 root mod layout. Nearly every mod does that as soon as they introduce their own armies and weapon setups.

    You could either temporarily change the init.con of the map to use BF2 soldiers or adjust your editor to load the AIX soldiers and their setup.

    Edit: whoops , just read the posting date - well, better late than never.

    Ow, btw this is surely not an editor bug - real editor bugs should be posted by experienced users. Its not that we care anymore. Since the takeover by EA DICE never released an improved editor.

  7. Its working quite fast for me (Seamonkey 2.26) but when i got a report about a spammer in Offtopic i can't seem to be able to delete his topic:


    I could edit his content, though.

    CCG, are you really using Chrome? What about its tendency to send everything to big brother you are doing? I'd rather use a different browser despite its speed and everything.

    Thanks Detrux for maintaining, i also thought i was on the wrong URL but it became clear after a few moments :-)

  8. To take XWW2 to a new level (and that means a new engine with a lot of capabilities) we are looking for an experienced animator. You should be at home with animating stuff in 3DS Max , including weapon action and character movement.

    We can offer in-depth help to any questions you might have and an opportunity to go commercial if we get this game going.

  9. Sorry for being late but my focus is elsewhere now :P

    Rerversing rotation of an engine is easy. Just put a - (minus) sign in front of the acceleration and rotation:

    ObjectTemplate.setMinRotation 0/0/5
    ObjectTemplate.setMaxRotation 0/0/3000
    ObjectTemplate.setMaxSpeed 0/0/3000
    ObjectTemplate.setAcceleration 0/0/500
    ObjectTemplate.setDeAcceleration 0/0/800


    ObjectTemplate.setMinRotation 0/0/-5
    ObjectTemplate.setMaxRotation 0/0/-3000
    ObjectTemplate.setMaxSpeed 0/0/3000
    ObjectTemplate.setAcceleration 0/0/-500
    ObjectTemplate.setDeAcceleration 0/0/-800

    Its been a while so bear with me. It could be that one or more of the minus signs are unnecessary.

  10. i didnt make any roads using the roads tool - just let the bots figure it out 4 thenselves in my previous tests

    i tried keeping the map simple till i got bots working - so there were 2 or 3 buildings only.

    they found their way ok - i am currently putting something a bit more complex together - will test before continuing (will back it up before continuing.)

    no point putting more work into it if it wont work again...

    Roads - thats ok, the bots don't recognize them anyway, it won't affect the navmesh process. There's a lot of mods without using roads but SP support.

    Buildings: Making the navmesh should be last on your map checklist. Changing maps after creating the navmesh will lead to serious probblems, even crashes. Finish your map *completely* before adding bot support or start over with navmeshing. As a rule of thumb if your map runs perfectly in CQ it should be ready for neighbouring settings and navmeshing. Once you move things around or change overgrowth, undergrowth etc... You have to make a new navmesh.

  11. i am planning on using GMAX to do the navmesh editing - are there any issues i should be aware of beforehand?

    thanx again!!


    No, gmax doesn't work without serious filemangling, you are currently not able to do that.

    Use Blender or Wings3D or any other3D editor with built-in OBJ support.

    i eventually started all over - completely removed bf2+python+editor (everything)

    deleted all leftover folders+files + re-installed the lot

    That tells me - all you would have to do wold be to left-click a *.py file -> Open with.. select python.exe and check the 'Always use his program to open that kind of file ' box. Instead you re-install the whole bunch , spending hours.

    I'm afraid that bot support is currently beyond your scope - but surprise me :P
