From a technical standpoint I'm sure there's a way to do it even without that, but that requires more work of course.
What I'm doing here is disproving the theory that one needs a full skeleton to do anything at all.

And in this case I was basically told that the mesh is completely useless and just placeable and nothing more. Just to be treated as a trash. That's the tone gopostal went in that famous e-mail he referred to, but of course he won't say that in public.

Is this caustic ton really necessary, Leo?

MS3D is maybe the best solution ...the 30 day trail version should be enough.

Darn ...my version as well.

Alright people. Lets not let a minor communications issue ruin a good project, or cause ill will. :ironic2:
Seems to me as if Jack got the impression the model was done, and the animations just needed to be
implemented in some code.

Since this appears to be a rough draft version of the model with just 1 minimal animation we should consider this
help request open.
As Higor points out, unless somebody who knows the Milkshake3d :?: program shows up, or somebody
learns it, this ain't going nowhere.

Once that is done, you could track down somebody who could make use of the thing in a new scriptedpawn.
(Jack could do it at that point I am sure, if he was still so inclined.... I'll even let him look at some of my code. :mrgreen: )

It would be a shame if I had to track you both down and kick your asses, seeing as you are 2 of my
favorite UT peoples... :wth:

Edit: This squabbling is distracting me from important research.
If you get it done, let me know if you need it to be upside down sometimes. 8) :rock:
