Delphi Screensaver

Post by Wiktor » Sat Jan 13, 2007 1:29 pm

Hi!
I want to write a screensaver with delphi. She would be doing something there, like training with her sword. But there is one problem. I haven't her 3d model. I know, there is one in the game, but I need the one with more details and of course with bones animation. Could any one make it? With HiRes textures? The model must be in .smd file. There is a plug-in to 3DS Max to make those files. I can send it.
If there is any one intrested in, please write. :)

The only delphi models are the one in game and the one packed with the geforce 3 version of the game, you will not find a better one. Also, nobody has been able to read bone or animation data from giants files, so you'll have to add them yourself in 3dsmax. If you want to open the delphi model in 3dsmax, you can try using my giants 3dsmax importer...

I will be doing a 4 month course in June, in 3Dsmax9, so once that is done, I should be able to do things like this :)

If not, I will have a go at making a new model, and other new models, so that hopefully the problem with animated 3d objects will be worked around somehow...

Hey Loop, been a while, why don't you play giants from time to time? :D

I will get back into it .. I'm missing it lately actually.

I'm still working on some skies in the background, so hopefully with the new dlls I will be able to have even better quality skies to share in the future :)

Seems you didn't help him (Wiktor) much...

If someone wants to create a new 3D model of Delphi from a scratch, it would be better to add it to the game, instead of to use it only for screensaver animation purposes, IMHO.
