My Kingdom for a Tool
Get yer mind out of the gutter.
I’m talking about an animation tool to be used in house, for testing new infantry models and animations. Something that allows me to load meshes, animations and Granny blends so that I can troubleshoot and tweak before they get into the game build. Thunder wrote one ages ago and it was pretty good. My only complaint with it was that it required me to do some text document editing and reloading every time I wanted to look at something or change something. So when Codec took over he tried, bless his heart, and it was shaping into something really nice, but for whatever reason it never got completed. Enter Martini: I’m crossing my fingers that he will work on it and get it to a final, workable state…only time will tell.
If any of you are familiar with a WoW mod called “ModelViewer”, then you will know what I am looking for in a tool of this nature.
