@TerryRed
It will allow textures and animation you have to change from rar to zip containing obj/mtl/textures and it should work and enable textures.
then load the Obj not the FBX into Mixamo.....

I did it with the Freddy and it is really good (As is Steve's)

Try the Darth above....
Hmmm... new Darth isnt working either. It loads in Mixamo and makes a very small FBX....which won't load into Importer.

It's also a real pain to get Mixamo to accept that Darth without it looking all messed up.

Yah, some objects have the rigging of the skeleton already done with the FBX. Shame they won't work with BAM Importer as is.

Example. Mike Myers has a knife. If using that FBX with Mixamo, it looks perfect.....but textures won't get included with that. If you try to use the object instead, it works... but the knife is all messed up.

The had everything except for Darth. :) All those naked video game characters...other Star Wars characters.... and not one Darth. :)
Yay !!!
Here is a DartthTGA model with all the textures that you can import into Fp

@George , I got the darth from one of the free sites...but used the process described above....

I used the "DarthNew.zip above and imported that into Mixamo

Attach the Mike Myers model as a zip and I will see if I can get it working....I reached my max of 10 downloads/day on that site

Doesn't he looks so cute in there. :)

Not sure if he'll stay there or how big etc...but he looks good. When he moves his cape isn't perfect, but it still looks cool!

Thanks Gimli. Could you possibly add the Superman choke they have on Mixamo?

If you can get Mike Myers working, then if there's a good spot...he's getting added the Halloween Pinevent :)

@TerryRed
I removed the knife that wasn't rendering properly
The NoKnife.zip you should be able to import into Mixamo to create you own
And then you can just import them into the enclosed TGA file.

The TGA File has all the textures added and shoud be ready to go

So cool being able to use Dead by Daylight's version of Freddy and Mike Myers. they will both look sweet in each table.

I've got Vader fully added to SW. The thing is you can't have perfect seamless transitions between animations like FX3 does. So I may reduce what I have now...but it's still working really cool.

I had this vision of having an xwing start to fly away from the table, but Vader uses the force to grab it and smash it into the ground. :)

I just use a Timer and a sub for playing the animations, then returning to the default when the animation is done.

Just use:

VaderAnimation(3)

as an example throughout the script (replacing 3 with the animation you use) instead of using long commands over and over.

Code:
Sub VaderAnimation(animation)
    if animation = 0 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(0).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(0).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,9900    'default - standing and bobbing
    if animation = 1 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(1).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(1).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,3300    'default - standing still
    if animation = 2 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(2).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(2).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,1100    'force push
    if animation = 3 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(3).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(3).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,4200    'shucks... darn
    if animation = 4 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(4).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(4).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,7800    'drain - what da' frick you doing?
    if animation = 5 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(5).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(5).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,3900    'I didn't do anything
    if animation = 6 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(6).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(6).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,5100    'You... step aside
    if animation = 7 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(7).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(7).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,5900    'Girl....please
    if animation = 8 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(8).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(8).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,20000    'Rambling and Raging - Long 1
    if animation = 9 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(9).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(9).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,20000    'Rambling and Raging - Long 2
    if animation = 10 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(10).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(10).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,1500    'Ready to Fight - Grab invisible sword
    if animation = 11 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(11).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(11).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,4800    'Vader smash
    if animation = 13 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(13).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(13).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,1200    'Two handed swipe
    if animation = 15 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(15).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(15).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,1500    'Force Choke
    if animation = 16 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(16).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(16).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,1200    'Kick
    if animation = 17 then Call cm_DarthVader.Animation(17).Frame(1, cm_DarthVader.Animation(17).NumFrames):VaderAnimation_Timer.set True,6300    'Force Choke - Pickup and slam down
End sub

Very nice cool stuff !
Mixamo has various packs of animations that I believe transition smoothly. Also there are likely ones that can be chosen that work better together. I just picked the ones I liked. The neat thing is as long as you have the original zip file we used , you can create more animations and they should import into the bam tga model file we are using.

The only problem I have is Mixamo does NOT like that Vader model very much...and getting it to accept it without the polygons all messed up is tricky. If you want to animate another character it removes your current one. :(

Ya and with the black textures of darth it is hard to place the circles for the autorigging....you almost need dummy bright textures with an x on them for cosistency with the rigging

I was excited because I made a Minions eye blink testing the .gif feature in BAM. HHhhmmm!!
Nope not even going to try and pretend I understand this at all, if I want something to move I ask my mate Gimli to do it for me. :help:
This is way above my pay grade so I conciser myself redundant. This is awesome!! :dance:

To give an update... I'm been working very heavily on the Star Wars DSA U-Pro TerryRed table update.

Let's just say that you've never seen a virtual pinball table like this. It's like an FX3 table on steroids.

- you want space battles... you got it
- you want ships flying around the table.... you got it
- you want exploding ships... you got it
- you want tie fighter and x-wing laser blasts... you got it
- you want turbo laser fire and animation... you got it
- you want Tie Fighters and Vader's Fighter.... you got it
- you want the Millenium Falcon flying around the table.... you got it.
- you want Darth Vader on the table reacting to table events... you got it.

It has been A LOT of trial and error (it's tricky keeping everything placed without getting in the way of other table components and toys), and lots and lots of work, but the result is friggin COOL!

@polygame ...and yes... I've used A LOT of easing for very smooth animations. :)

Once I am mostly done with this update (not including any PinEvent updates, which I haven't started yet really)... I'll post a video to show it all off.

    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed

    seems like we discussed it in some length at one point and came up with the current arrangement, but I don't have a strong opinion on that stuff. the one thing I do like is that I can clear out weaker tables from the main section without deleting them

    No it's fine
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    also, just to be clear-- the issue with "unapprove" is that you don't know if the table actually gets deleted from the server, right? AFAIK I have no way of seeing where the tables actually lie on the server, so it's something I can't test effectively

    They wouldn't get deleted from the server, I don't think.

    Hi guys, I«m asking here as it might have a quicker response. How can I check the ball size used by authors in FP? or at least the default size if anyone knows. Thanks
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    Most FP authors use the default size and don't know how to use BAM to alter it.
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    I think it may be 13.8 though
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Thanks. But while I've waited I've looked at a ring around a ramp in LotR that's 26mm so i figure the ball being 24mm. A bit short of real life ball size if that's so.
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    of course I could've used my brains earlier and create a table with some carefully spaced guides and check that the ball is in fact 27mm in diameter. Peeking at fp.exe and bam.dll and there's no way to change this. you can set the colour and the id to track it though (but that's known)
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    With Bam custom ball coding you can create balls of any size...see my titorial
