Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
The player models are very nice.

The Wolfen-X Stalker shot looks uneasy though. Something's just off about it or am I the only one?

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I've run into a really annoying problem getting talking head animations to work. I've followed a few tutorials to get the ANIs in game.... and they look like this horrible green and black mess at the top left of this screenshot:

Spoiler:
Is there any way to get a full colored talking portrait in the game that doesn't completely mess it up as a nearly all black and green portrait?
If that's not possible is there any way to just display a static colored portrait of a character instead of an ANI? I'd rather that than the horrible mess that ANIs are turning out to be.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Monochrome ANIs are sooooo 1999.

Luckily the future is here. (Use full color eff + png frames for maximum awesomeness)

Thank you for the link. I've made a game_settings table with Full color enabled. Just a few small questions...

- What folder should my .eff and png files go in?
- How do you select the .eff in FRED's event editor for a message? Seems to only be able to select ANIs.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Those eff and png files should probably go in hud, though I think the game would scour any graphics related folder for it. Still, best to keep it organized.

FRED does indeed only look for ani files, but as long as you enter the right filename, the game should pick the right thing to use.

Silly me, I just noticed I had to select a drop down menu in the Event Editor to select .effs. Still... the portrait is not showing up in game at all. I'm guessing I did something wrong with the game_settings.tbl file. I presume it goes in the table folder? Does the tbl file need anything else besides  $Full color head animations: TRUE in order to load the eff?

EDIT: I got it to work... however it's still putting an ugly green tint over the portrait.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
what does your game_settings.tbl look like right now?

Code: [Select]
  #CAMPAIGN SETTINGS
 
  #HUD SETTINGS
  $Full color head animations: YES
 
  #SEXP SETTINGS
 
  #OTHER SETTINGS
     
   #END
It should probably look like this.
Urutorahappī!!

[02:42] <@Axem> spoon somethings wrong
[02:42] <@Axem> critically wrong

It's still putting an ugly green filter over it even with my settings just like your example, though it is much more visible:

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
That's odd; with "$Full color head animations" in use, it shouldn't be applying HUD coloration to it (and we know it's in use because you can actually see the animation at all now; without that setting, it was trying to read your image as though it had 8 bits per pixel).

Perhaps the problem is with the hud settings file... as it seems I do not have one in my mod.  :lol:

I meant the hud_gauges.tbl file, since there seems to be a "color" option for Talking Heads in it. Still seems to have no effect at all though, it's applying that ugly green tint no matter what I do.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Think we'll get to play this campaign say in 2015?

It looks awesome and I'm a big Star Fox fan. :)

Assuming I can get that ugly green tint to go away there might be a few missions ready before 2015.
