creating and importing new content into CryTek
Crysis : Crysis Mapping
Does anyone know what the process is for creating 3D models externally and importing them as static or animated assets into CryEngine? Is there a standard 3d model/animation format it accepts? Is there a conversion process to translate standard 3D formats... [more]

D3 total conv. - How long does it take?
DOOM III : DOOM III Mapping
So, when embarking on a new Doom3-based total conversion game, how long should one budget for developers? For instance, how many hours for a static ragdoll? How long for an animated character (human)? How long for a vehicle? How long for an apartment-size... [more]

I want to add one of those "follower" bots from Q4 into my level. You know, the marine that follows you everywhere, and is very helpful in a firefight. How can I go about that, and how modifyable is that model while retaiing it's "behavior"? Thx... [more]

RoQ shader help
Quake 4 : Q4 Mapping
Thanks for the info Foleyman. In the meantime, I downloaded Switchblade and though it's crude, it rendered a 512 x 512 RoQ for me (it matches whatever input AVI dims are) and the gui popped up. You were right, the non-2x size was the issue. Works great... [more]

RoQ shader help
Quake 4 : Q4 Mapping
I keep getting "bad size, must be 512 by 384" error from QVM. Doesn't seem to let me use another video size for RoQ output. This is independent of the input AVI size, as I tried converting from a 512 x 512 AVI, in case there was an issue with scaling. ... [more]

RoQ shader help
Quake 4 : Q4 Mapping
In addition, I solved the preview issue and the RoQ creation with Quake Video maker. I reencoded the source AVI to be 512x384 at 24fps and Indeo codec, and QVM liked that a lot better. However, I'm not getting the video playing in my in-game gui. An... [more]

RoQ shader help
Quake 4 : Q4 Mapping
I'm thinking maybe it's my creation of the RoQ that's the issue. I'm using Quake Video Maker to convert AVI to RoQ. When I start a new project and import the AVI, and even when I create the RoQ, I get a black screen for the preview. I don't know if this i... [more]

RoQ shader help
Quake 4 : Q4 Mapping
Does anyone have an example of a shader for a RoQ video gui in Q4? I have a D3 shader, but it doesn't perform as expected, and I'm not sure how similar they are to an equivalent Q4 RoQ video shader. If I knew the required parameters I could figure out wha... [more]

Following an online video tutorial from trepaning.com, which reinforces that what I've been doing is correct, I created a pk4 (699.pk4) file and placed it into my q4base folder along with Q4's native pk4's. It has one file in it, my ASE file, which uses n... [more]
