yeap, i know this. its caused by eighter mirrored meshes or bones or moved meshes after they are weighted or the IK solvers you mentioned in the other post.

did you try to port it in game as no-animated vehicle? try once to export it with an animation that has no effect on the meshes. does it look the same way? if you mirrored meshes try to use >reset XForm< befor weighting. do that anyway with all meshes befor starting to weight.

if you mirrored bones, you have to redo it. i already told you this, so sorry for repeating it all the time, i just want to be sure.

if its the IK? try to make a test animation without IK solvers, if it works right then one with. if then it works wrong we know it.

let us know.

I didn't mirrored the bones, I done each seperatly. I didn't make the model, so I don't know about that.

The bones are in the right places (you can see them in modview) It's only the mesh.

I did reset XForm to the whole model, nothing changed

When I play the animation, most of the parts move, exept for the head.

befor you click reset XForm, you have to delete the skin modifiers and unbind the hirarchie. the meshes have to be unweighted and unbinded to stay in place after using XForm. if the faces get fliped inside out, convert it to editable mesh and flip them back. try to use XForm again until nothing happens.

now you can weight and construct the hirarchie again. the animation should still work.

Convert everything to editable mesh. Select the whole model, go to utilities panel, and choose reset XForm. Click on the button that shows up. Now choose every part seperatly, choose the editable mesh modifier, and move it to the right position.

Very well done!

One thing though, and I'm really sorry about it, but could you possibly turn it around the Z axis (he should look down in the top view)

Question: how can i offer my help without to sound stuck-up after this?

sure, i would like to help. if one of you could sent me the model like LightNinja made it and one vesion with the animations from imyourfather in a max file, i would like to take a look at them if possible. imyourfather, we can keep the animations and always merge them into a fixed model.

i am sure we can bring it in game working. you should have seen the first version of the Dewback in game. i have not even recogniced it as living creature, it looked like thrown trough a black hole. urg!

None that i know of, that wouldnt lose any information. you can save it as XSI the animations and meshes will be there but thne bones turned into dummies when loading back into 3ds max. to pass mashes i normaly use md3 format, the mesh and sknimap stay the same. you could sent it in these two formats but i am not sure if i can realy help you this way.


BTW, i have problems to posts on some threads. on the droideka thread for ex. i cant post now for about a week! i wrote mails but didnt get any support. what could we do?

PM moderators =p, btw, now i know that .5 files cant be open with 4.2 cuz i sent a guy other model (was a player model weighted and all) and he couldnt open it, i thought that my max was bad but now i know why he couldn't open it, he had 4.2 . Also if u cant open a 5.1 file, nobody with a version under of 5 will be able to open it?, And if is able, he could save the model and send you to open it, well i hope you can open it.

first off, the forum seems to work perfect again. greatest thanks!

it looks like there is no way to port a file in max format down from one version to a lower. the only way so i could take a look at the model would be if you sent it in md3 format. you can convert the bones into meshes befor saving as md3. if you add the animated model as XSI then i have all the thing in different saved files but i can puzzle it together if needed.

let me know if you think you could need my help.
