Support / Object3D.addTriangle()
« on: March 08, 2006, 07:21:20 pm »
short question on addTriangle() - is there any way to remove triangles set using this method? Or is triangle data "lost" when adding triangles?

If I want to support changing Object3Ds on the fly using addTriangle(), would I have to store the triangle data somewhere and, if a triangle gets removed, clear the object, set all triangles and then call rebuild?


Projects / "Visual" JPCT
« on: March 04, 2006, 02:42:14 am »
Here is a little project I'm working on. I've called it "Visual JPCT" for lack of a better name. (I hope you don't mind, Egon.)

It's basically a small swing frontend for the jpct engine. I was tired of having to recompile every time I fiddled with my models  :wink: And it is a great way to learn the engine!


I've mapped the following jpct functions to the gui:

    importing md2/3ds models
    adding objects to world
    setting objects origin
    moving camera
    rendering solid/wireframe

Things to be done (some ideas):

    manipulating objects
    adding/changing lights
    saving/loading scenes (xml)
    adding primitive objects
    adding triangles
    animation (yeah, right)
    scripting (yeah, right!)

I hope you like it so far. If it gets to some sort of solid state, I will release it.


Support / Finding good md2 models
« on: February 26, 2006, 09:45:34 pm »
Hi all!

I have a question not realy related to jpct, rather to the general work flow :). I'm fiddling around with modeling and animation of md2 models to use with jpct, but have problems finding good examples on the net.

It might also be a problem with importing into Milkshape - the models I have don't have skeletons or animation after import. Is that a Milkshape problem or is a skeleton optional for md2 files?

On a side note: how does jpct load md2s? Are the skeletons discarded and "only" meshes generated?

I don't want to use other models, I'd just like to see how other people have done animation, its not a trivial task ;)

Can someone help?
