Re: PCS2 User to User Help
That Radeon 9200 should be able to run PCS2 I would think.  I've never tried it myself on something that old though.  I doubt SP3 would help but I never had any problems installing it on my XP boxes.

Problem solved (or rather worked around, I guess): I switched to using the integrated Intel 82845G, at which point the crashes went away. Query OpenGL gives 1.3.0 as the version now.

Strange, but at least that confirms it's graphics card related through either the hardare or drivers. :\

Re: PCS2 User to User Help
Did you do an reset x-form before exporting?  That error is usually because you did an move/rotate/scale before you exported (there's extra information in the dae file that the converter can't handle)
That could possibly be fixed if someone would send me a model with this 'problem'.

 
Re: PCS2 User to User Help
I'll have to remake one for you, but there was a separate node entry that contains the rotate/translate/scale values.

Is PCS2 still open for improvements or suggestions?

I might be able to come up with one or two things feature wise, and there's a couple things
at least that are named (sort of) wrong... or at least they could be less confusing to new folks
if they matched like they are meant to.

I need some help with PCS2.

I'm importing a part of a collada model into a POF, which works great. It's actually amazing how well it works. :)

The only problem is, that it doesn't import the texture used on the new submodel. Is that a bug?

I noticed I can create new textures/materials in PCS2. How can I assign them to a submodel?


I'm using the October 2008 build, cause the newer Collada compatible build crash for me.

I got a question too with collada,
When i export models from 3dsmax to pcs2 by collada, it works greatly with pcs2.
Now my problem is that when i export from pcs2 to 3dsmax, modify things, then export collada , when i open that with pcs2, pcs2 will crash... is it normal?
Because when you have to modify something on a existing model i don"t want to replace all the dock point  path etc... in pcs2 as it takes hours...
i'm not home i don't remember wich version of pcs2 i use, i think it's the last one.
Ah and when i save a pof, pcs2 will crash everytime, but it save the pof correctly... i'm running windows 7 64 bit version.

If you have the original Model and have to edit it why not start with it, rename the old .pof, export the model and then do a global import from the renamed one?  You may have to still tweak a few things but no more then you have to do anyway.

So yeah, maybe if someone would pay attention to that thread I posted (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=65680.0), we might not have to deal with all these "PCS2 will crash" bugs.

What version of PCS2 are you using?  I done this many times without a problem.   Well except for rotating subsystem and turret data needing to be entered correctly.

Get the 2.03 Collada from November (check Chief's sig used to be there) it's much more stable.  2.1 was an alpha release and is not at all stable.

The 2.0.3 link should still be in the article in my sig link, unless someone removed it.

I didn't say you were.

I'm just saying that as long as people are going to completely ignore the research I did to figure out the cause of that crash, and nobody is independently trying to figure out the problem, and nobody is working on a solution, it's not going to get fixed.

Edit: on a related note, everything after the PCS2 beta uses VBOs and, as such, will crash and burn. That's probably why Reprobator isn't using 2.0.3 / the Collada import version.

 
Well in fact i've just missed the last collada pcs2 version ;p
I did download it form the wiki, i'll try the one you told me this evening.
