Home made arms

Posted by Aardvajk, 02 August 2015 · 0 views

So the problem with those wonderful detailed arms from MakeHuman is that they are impossible to rig using Charm, since it is designed as a low-polygon editor and hasn't (yet) got any support for fancy weight painting. Gave up and made a set of my own deliberately basic arms, so I can at least start working on the actual programming side of working with th...

Just a quick post to say that, as I'm completely fed up with trying to make a model of a hand myself, I've finally gotten around to adding an OBJ importer to Charm so I can chop bits off a MakeHuman model instead http://public.gamedev5.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png

New Project

Just a quick entry to say that the scripting engine is on hold while I start a new game project. Just been playing around getting normal mapping and specular lighting working with a single omnidirectional point light.

The basic idea is a bit like the Grappling Hook game floating around the web, or the bat-cable in the Batman games, except you can atta...
