Re: Stand Alone Model Viewer

I have to admit that Zidanes work has given me insight that I wouldn't have had before (exception being the VisualSourceSafe files). Now the next step is to get the code working inside the BAS Editor (which I also made some changes recently to handle STRC sections better). It's been a while since I ...

Re: Stand Alone Model Viewer

I figured out the problem. My Texture viewer that was made in QT is not rendering (or saving) the image correctly. A manual copy and paste of the bitmap data into the template works great

Stand Alone Model Viewer

So I've been working on a standalone model viewer that works outside of UA. Getting 3D stuff working correctly is so hard and requires many dependencies :( Here's a cool picture of what I've adapted from NeHe (nehe.gamedev.net) Screenshot from 2018-01-20 10-04-44.png The tracks dont have texture map...

Re: Help Me

You need a special shortcut and a registry entry. You cannot double click on ua_xp.exe to have it work now that I am remembering correctly The registry entry can be installed from this ZIP file: http://files.metropolisdawn.com/metropolis-dawn/Expansion%20Test%20registry.zip It assumes that you have ...

Re: Help Me

Hello Usamah, Can you tell us about your computer? Are you using Windows 7, have you tried any "compatibility settings", etc? Looking at the error picture I can see you opened ua_xp.exe which is the expansion pack for Urban Assault. You need the full version of Urban Assault also before using the ex...

So a cease and desist letter is better than wait for Microsoft to answer.... :?

Re: Original UA source code and its legality

However, the original source code is password protected inside a Visual SourceSafe. The source code is not password protected -- VSS doesnt work like that :) The usernames to log into VSS do have passwords. There is a guest account with unlimited view access as far as I can tell.

Re: Questions

Happy New year. For #1, I will let someone more familiar with LDF files and/or Zidane answer. For #2, the answer is: "it's complicated" Skeleton files can be extracted from .BAS files and imported into Blender fairly easily. That's where things get complicated.
