world of warcraft npc's

Post by [JSC][GU]PREDATOR » Thu Nov 22, 2012 2:33 am

I'm having trouble getting them to work as a monster_generic, all i want it to do is go after players but all it does is stand there, its because there is something you have to do with the .qc file and i don't know what that is.

here is a video of me messing around with the animations
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmLDJtA2KYo

the names of each smd files:

felreaver_attackunarmed
felreaver_attackunarmed2
felreaver_channelcastomni
felreaver_combatcritical
felreaver_combatwound
felreaver_dance
felreaver_dead
felreaver_death
felreaver_idle
felreaver_parryunarmed
felreaver_runspecialunarmed
felreaver_stand
felreaver_walk

if i can get this resolved i'll release it so you can have this huge thing as a custom npc in your maps

Oh, another veteran who comes from the past, excelent.


I think that i know what is happening, i had a similar issue with a zombie model: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/$animation

Look the align and world movement parts. You have to put the XY or similar thing.

This is an example of the QC of the default zombie model:

Code: Select all

$animation a_WalkS "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto -180 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkSE "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto -135 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkE "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto -90 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkNE "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto -45 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkN "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto 0 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkNW "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto 45 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkW "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto 90 fps 50.00 }

$animation a_WalkSW "Walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto 135 fps 50.00 }

With that, this is what my .qc looks like

$animation a_WalkSW "felreaver_walk"
{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto 135 fps 30.00 }
guistudio says there is a problem with

{ loop walkframe 60 LX LY startloop 0 rotateto -180 fps 30.00 }

I changed the lines to resemble what it says in that link you posted and it worked, the model compiled correctly but when i tested it the thing was still not moving, i was getting the exact same thing in console as i was before

When I saw the name of the thread starter, I thought someone bumped a 6-years old thread.

Anyways I remember hearing from Skidz that you have to set up the NPC movement speeds in a 3D program, I never did any NPC modeling so I can't really tell you what to do exactly, I'd suggest reading up on it in the VDC.

Forget it, because like many things, it doesn´t appear there. At least not directly.

After an intensive search, i found that the following problems makes that error:


Your models lack of a ragdoll.

Your models lack a walk/run animation (you will have to look if you have a ACT_WALK or ACT_RUN). https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wik ... _Sequences https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/$sequence

Your walk/run animation starts and freeze at frame 0 (check it on HLMV).

Check if your npc are spawing on the ground.


Tell me what it happens.

i put the npc above the ground a little for it to drop down to ensure that it isn't just stuck in the ground, this is what the .qc looks like now, and it fixed that error in console but still no progress he isn't moving

i took a vmf of a map from gamebanana of a houndeye which was intended for hl2dm, that is what i am basing the felreaver on. all i've done is change the model to a fel reaver. this is what the .qc of the working houndeye looks like

Well, the QC of the Houndeye defines the ragdoll and their physical properties, while the yours not.

https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Collision_mesh

https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wik ... sionjoints

https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wik ... d_Ragdolls


Also i´m reading that you need info_nodes for your npc moves (place them if you don´t did it before).

Try with that.
