You dont have to animate your character with the JK2 system.
The animations are already contained in the _humanoid.gla (motion capture file), all you have to do is setup the skeleton on the character and it'll animate on the fly.
...please move to general editing forum...thank you.
but what if you wanted too add a new utilty on your char belt or something and you would like to have animation of your char usein it. how would you go about doin that???

You cant...not until we figure out how to mess around with the .gla file.
In the general editing forums, there's a sticky at the top for the animation possibilities...they are working on it.
.gla file huh well guess we can try to take that on. so if any of you know anthing about the .gla file put up some info.

Like i said they are working on it:
and this thread will most likely be moved...it does not belong in the showcase/modelling forum
If you have questions, please post to the general editing forum:

We need somebody to make a properly weighted skeleton, then make a new animation and export it to gla form using assimilate/carcass.
We already have a tool that will (supposedly) merge the new gla file with the default _humanoid.gla and add new animations. This really only works when you have a modeler/animator working with a coder which hasn't entirely happened yet because we scared the animators away with all the negative talk.
