I thought it must be illegal because in the 5 years ive been here (i had been here before i signed up ;D) I STILL havent seen anyone do what i'm doing. Well actually i've seen it often in Darkelfa's (or is that Elfa-X now?) screenshots for his weapon releases, yet he hasnt uploaded them.
And i've just tried what you said, opened source sdk, am running the model viewer, appropriate config, no model open (problem?), and it still gives me the same error.
Ah yep, they look like the ones lol. Damn, I did and i couldnt find anything :'( could it be because im running windows 7?
edit: tried running it in compatibility mode for xp service pack 2 and 3, still nothing... Also, im using 'Cannonfodder's StudioCompiler', if that changes anything.
edit again: i tried using GUI studio compile; worked with no problems this time :D EXCEPT... the animations are completely fucked, the hands go all stretched out and weird... :'(
HOWEVER... I also did a weapon model hack, something really really simple, and its not worth going into, but anyways that wouldnt work before, so i tried compiling it again... Worked with GUI studiocompile. And no retarded animations in hlmv :|
I did notice an error of sorts about vertex weights or something when i DECOMPILED the player models, could that cause these strange model stretching things?
And i just noticed an error about milkshape not supporting vertex weights when i import smd files.
