i created a model with more then 59 bones to a single mesh, and xnalara returns a different error

something like model has more then 59bones (xxx bones) skipping model

... so that is actually the 59bone limit error.

that means the error I've got before failed to int is something entirely different.

I still think it's some kind of problem with the armature of those models.

HA its a ****ing typo!

when I made the script into the GUI I added a few new features. one of which was to use mesh names instead of material names..

well if you have a look at the mesh names on IVY there like ivy_clothes_obj_low_etc..

for the generic item spec any underscore "_" denotes a new entry of data..

so the error I was getting about failing to int the model was related to a bad generic_item file

all I had to do was disable the mesh names, which it was originally in the first script. but that got accidentally chanaged from true to false through testing...

I just changed it back from false to true and it exported fine with no problems.

I'll still make a video addressing SC4 porting, just to get people unstuck on the SC4 stuff

Unused bones don't count right?

I suppose 'true' unused ones don't count (when the vertex group has zero weight, so it doesn't even do anything) indeed.

Xianghua loaded in XNALara without her jacket, since that has 62 bones:

So I would need to split that jacket up in 2 halves (left and right) and then she would import fully.

Edit:

Oh. :p
^_^

I don't believe splitting is even needed.

I know theres a limit there.. and all

but I just did a ton of testing.. and models usually won't push more then 40.. its still possible to hit that limit though.

but with the SC4 models I don't think thats a problem.

if you have a problematic model send it my way so I can properly determine a solution.

I'll be making a video guide to address SC4 porting for 3dsmax soon

Love2Raid 31-07-11 18:35

Usually not, indeed. But sometimes they do (long coats and dresses etc.) and splitting is then the best way to handle it.

Cool, I will. Thanks again, I'll wait for the video. :D

mariokart64n 31-07-11 18:38

even though I don't have a model that has more then 59, I'll so how to do a split in max.

3dsmax's layout is not user friendly, but once understood becomes very easy.

in otherwords give it ago, if you fall off you can either choose to get back up, or walk a way. you can only gain from the experience experience... that of which can be applied to any editing software.


Very well then. I'll give it a try.
I wan't to contribute into the XNAlara community. :)
