Need help. 3rd person plugin : Create my own character

Postby Ortinco » Mon Jan 02, 2006 11:26 pm

well, i dont know how to create a new character (i dont want my heros to be an human or a robot)... I draw my character with 4 angle , 3 pic by angle...
But my character is unfunctionnal and i dont know how to valid it...

When i try to test a frame, a windows appear in the screen and tell :

Error executing script. The scripting engine returned the following error message: File not found : (location of my project)

(sorry for my english , i live in quebec and i'm not really good in that language..)

Your images for what you want to use for the Third person game need to be in the External folder in the project folder of your project name.
Look in the Third person game WITHOUT scripting\External folder to see how it works.

5. Choose between the two available sprites ("Human" or "Robot") and then click OK to close the "Third Person Plugin Configuration" window.
6. Click OK to close the Project Properties window.

the problem is that i want to create my character.. i draw all of the move in .gift and i put it in the folders named external of the project section

What can i do now?
tanks for your answer

Ortinco,
Are each of your sprites numbered properly? And is your extension correct? The extension on my files is .gif not .gift.

Suppose your sprite is named "Sally", and you are using 4 angles and 3 pictures per angle. In the Sprites folder make a sub-folder named "Sally".

Put into that folder your 12 GIFs of the walk sequence and name them for the first sequence -
Sally_01_01.gif
Sally_01_02.gif
Sally_01_03.gif

For the second sequence name them -
Sally_02_01.gif
Sally_02_02.gif
Sally_02_03.gif

And so on for the 3rd and 4th sequences.

In Project Properties/Plugins check the box for the 3rd person plug-in and then open the configuration window (pictured above in Candle's post) and fill in your information.

Make sure the Prefix box indicate's the name (in this case "Sally") of your sprite. The sprite should automatically be copied into your External folder.

By the way, with only four angles and only three pictures per walk sequence, your figure's movements might be somewhat jerky.

I hope this is of help. Good luck.
