  1. Just had a few questions regarding Weapon sizing and animation FPS.

     

    First, when importing a weapon and getting it all set up, how small should the weapon be? What I mean is if it is too big when playing in-game the model will go though the walls, so I just wanted to know if there is a general size recommendation or if it's just trying till it works.

     

    Second, when it comes to animating a weapon, what fps should I be focusing on? I use Blender to animate and I use 30 FPS to view the animations. That's about it thank you for any help :)

  2. Just had a question with whether it is possible to make a dynamic scope for a weapon using the Camera Entity. I have the camera mounted in front of the scope of the weapon in the prefab and set the Render target on the scopes .tex. Inside the editor it seems to be working but in game the scope is just black. I have no idea if this was at all possible just gave it a shot. Any ideas would be awesome!

  3. I've never seen this before. Is it just the standard script? Want to upload your map?

     

    Yes it is the standard script with changes to damage, health, and speed only

     

    I was just messing around with it and found that it was in the code

     

    self.entity:SetCharacterControllerAngle(0);
    

     

    I added that following a link from a comment on this thread but I had it set to 0 cuz when it's at 180 the npc gets close to me and attacks but it's facing the wrong way the enter time.

  4. The PAC guys experienced this problem recently. I updated the script so it will automatically set the correct collision type for all the limbs. if you opt into the beta branch and then update your project, I believe it will correct your problem. Alternatively, you can set every limb to "prop" collision type.

     

    Thank you, the alternative method worked and it's pretty straight forward. Now the only issue I'm having is the npc teleports or bounces away when it gets close to me.

  5. Might be helpful if you post your script so we can see what is going on.

     

    Otherwise we are only guessing.

     

    Your character problem is addressed here.

     

    http://www.leadwerks.com/werkspace/topic/13204-wrong-way-round/page__hl__character

     

    I've tried that, the npc faces the right way but once it gets close enough to me it kind of bounces away and comes after me again.

     

    With regards to the bullets going right through? You may need to assign collision types to items in the model tree of your NPC model. It seems even the crawler NPC does not have these set up and they have manually(?) been set up in the FPS Sample AI demo map.

     

    My suggestion would be to create a project based on the FPS Sample and take a close look at the crawler setup in the 'AI' map there. in particular, take a look at the collisions setup on the tree of the crawler model.

     

    Hope you figure it out.

     

    I've taken a look into the ai map to see how it works and I tried to recreate it with mine but still nothing

  6. Hello there,

     

    I have been messing around with Leadwerks and have made new npc's and created new scrips for those npcs and it all works well they move, attack me, and such however I can't seem to kill them. When I try to shoot them, it just goes right through them and I cant seem to figure it out. Second issue, when they come after me they are always looking away, I have the Character angle at 180 but when I turn it to 0, once they get near me they kind of just bounce away not sure why. Any help is much appreciated and thank you.
