Freespace 2 MODing / Thrusters for ships.tbl question?
« on: September 22, 2008, 11:46:15 PM »
Is there any graphical means in a modeling program (helpers, subobjects aliased, etc..) to setup thrusters for ships tbl?
Also is there a way to make a graphic flip with Lithunrwap? (reverse text)

Tmp2 / Multiplayer woes...
« on: July 03, 2008, 01:03:54 AM »
I can see games in FS2NET for BtRL but I don't see any servers inside the games multiplayer interface. And when I start a server I never see them show up in FS2NET?
I opened the ports as directed but still no go?

Wondering if it is a Vista issue...ugh
I've found so many networking bugs with it for business VPN issues....

Tmp2 / Hangs when selecting ship type?
« on: June 24, 2008, 01:34:20 AM »
I just started running into this a week ago.
I removed everything, re-installed.
Start the game, begin a mission in stand alone BtRL everything seems fine, installed the mission pack, try to select the ships tab in a mission, and the game hangs indefinately. I have to kill it, and my screen is max cranked on brightness. I have to essentially close out of all FS2/BtRL, start up again, and Ctrl Alt Delete to end the game to get my desktop back to normal color.

But the Ships tab keeps hanging if I try to select it.
Not sure what is causing it now since I re-installed?
I completely removed the cockpit mod fixed folder and the -mod cockpit_fixed from the features box.
Even turned off all features and tried running barebones.
I am running Open GL 1680x1050. Tried messing with the anisotropy filters but no luck there either. I can play as long as I dont try to select a ship type.

Freespace 2 MODing / Modeling questions, specifically texturing...
« on: April 16, 2008, 04:53:47 PM »
I have 3DS Max 4, pretty old version but at least its legal.
I can't find the Service Pack any where for it unfortunately.
If anyone has it let me know, I would really like to get hold of it.

Anyway v4 is limited to textures 1000x1000

My question on textures;
Does anyone have a short tutorial on Max texturing, grouping, & lighting a model before using the POF export?

Also I was working with a model for the Space Park in BtRL.
Trying to texture the beast, but I can't seem to get an unwrap to work with it properly. Mainly the torus and arms I joined into one object hoping to make the animation of its rotation easier. It made the unwrap go haywire as I expected it would. Too many negative returns I would venture.

Should I texture them all as separate objects then assemble them into one object? Or should I just group them as children of the Torus?

If there is a tutorial up somewhere already, just point me there please. Thank you.
I am going blind sifting through the stuff and finding mostly broken links.:)

Tmp2 / BSG Primers on Scif Fi tonight!
« on: March 28, 2008, 11:33:12 PM »
Looks like they have 2 separate 1/2 hour season primers tonight.
Got the DVR all set :D
BSG Revealed
BSG The Phenomenon

Likely these will be podcasts to download from the site after the showing.
Would make sense.

Should beat the heck out of that less than flattering Letterman appearance.
Although the BSG crew did a gracious team effort on the Letterman show,
it just didn't do these folks any justice.

Tmp2 / Print out the controls?
« on: February 23, 2008, 07:05:23 PM »
I'm trying to figure out where the keyboard and joystick assignment file is.
I wanted to print it out so I can actually get some idea of what I am setting things for yet.
