Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

It has been some time since I was last here ... In the meantime, has a TPM importer been created for Blender? If yes, it would be very helpful for me since I have been using this software for many years to make 3D objects / characters for my mods :D Actually, YES! https://www.trescomforum.org/viewt...

Coming back to TPDC, the arm position and other body parts of new dinos should fit 100% with the original Trespasser mesh?

Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

Definitely some vertices have been assigned to the wrong bones. Just do some "cleanup" work. Oh, and there's alimit to the number of vertices that can be assigned to the same bone, though TPDC doesn't warn you about it... This is interesting. What is the maximum number of vertices for the...

Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

Oye, again I only skimmed, but one option might be to import a 3DS from Tres into Blender and then "fix" it, then do whatever and export it as TPM using the blender script. I did this with the Parasaurolophus but it appears very small in TPDC. When i export a 3ds dino from TresEd, it does...

Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

Is the axis orientation correct on your mesh in Max? If not, try orienting it to the world and using the "Reset X-Form" option. I don't have Max. I use Blender to make TPM files. The problem is that Blender only has TPM exporter not importer (i don't know if someone has it over there) tha...

I only found a Blender TPM exporter in moddb site. If you have a Blender TPM importer, could you send me the download link?

Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

Alright, i re-rigged the gallimimus, replaced "Para" with "galli" in TPM file and imported it in TresEd. But seems that the mesh doesn't match with the bones so i rotated the mesh only to fit with bones position. Is there a way to fix this? because in TPDC the galli fits well wit...

Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

i opened the TPM with notepad and renamed bones to match with the mesh name ("galli" in this case). Even, i deleted some lines that had ParaBody, ParaHead and ParaTail instances/mesh (also, they appeared in TPDC after selecting Parasaur preset -there was an option to choose a skin and i ch...

Re: How to use TPDinoCreator tool?

Rigged the JPOG Gallimimus in TPDC. But, when i imported it in GeomAdd, a long list of "Bad joint index in line..." error appeared. Is it a rigging issue? :?

Re: How to put new textures in a terrain with TresEd?

Worked, Thanks!
How can i get rid off the message that appears in TresEd when i load a level? It keeps saying this: "...path not found, please insert CD or cancel to load level manually"?

Re: How to put new textures in a terrain with TresEd?

Hey guys! i know that this will sound a bit strange but the original SWP files of Trespasser disappeared. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it again to see if SWP files returned in game directory but nothing appears now. How can i see the original SWP files again?

Re: Error when converting files to TPM

It's fixed. I set all options at maximum in TresEd and gallimimus looks properly as well as his shade. Thanks, machf!

Re: Error when converting files to TPM

Excellent tutorial, Thanks! i still use Paint Shop Pro to make mods for Carnivores games (specially to make new menu designs). So, i made a 8 bit texture for the gallimimus and now it looks properly in the game. But, in TresEd the gallimimus texture looks different (it doesn't have body details like...
