My Blender Journey :P
« on: September 12, 2016, 10:29:28 am »
I find that after TL1CP i dont seem to have any desire to create new classes and im not skilled enough to attempt a TC or anything like that. But i would love to get new items into the game if i can, maybe even help Anarch with his TL1 Armors mod XD .

So i will (once again) attempt to learn Blender. Just thought id share this and hopefully doing so will shame me into actually getting it done! :D anyway wish me luck!

LOL! Thanks Kva and Gyt!!!

Well I downloaded Blender which is now version 2.77a and also downloaded the scripts recommended by SixShot in his tutorial.

I will install and test the set-up in the next few days. I hope those scripts will work with version 2.77a :D !

First of all, I renamed this thread to "my blender journey" because something tells me it is really going to be a journey! :D

So...
Spoiler
Say hello to my leettle friend!


First challenge - import a standard TL2 character mesh into Blender - done.

Tutorial/s used: Torchlight to Blender Import Export by Wolven

It was not straightforward though - I only got to this stage by first generating the .XML files manually (drag-&-drop on to the OGRE XML Converter shortcut) and putting them into the same folder as the .MESH and .SKELETON files.  So I guess I cheated.  I hope I can solve this eventually.

From here I will try to follow SixShotOverdrive's tutorial for combining mesh pieces.

Hey @Kva3imoda can I ask for some guidance pls?

I tried to import one of the TL1 wardrobe .MESH files (the Alch's Homunculus set) but I got this error message...



not sure what to do now - my guess is it needs a different i/o script?

Well, I'm using Blender v. 2.65. I remember some issues with more recent version.

I guess I can try to install an earlier version...

How about the main import/export script? The link in your short tut points to
ImportExportTL_blender25x_v0.6.1.zip (Sep 27, 2012)
but there is a later one...
ImportExportTL_blender25x_v0.6.2.zip (Mar 10, 2013)
Are you using the 6.1 version also?

Thanks again!

I am using the older version v0.6.1, but I tried a new one v0.6.2 - it works too.

Nope.  :)
I use 2.49b for some specific tasks
2.65 as the main tool
2.76b for export in FBX fomat

Okay thanks! I'm not a power user so, for now, I will just try to make my v2.65 installation work properly and consistently :D

EDIT
Should I be using 32bit Blender?  I have Win10 so I installed v 2.65a 64bit...  :-[

Thanks Kva. I also checked v2.68-64bit (because I had it from an earlier download). tried it but it also did not work.

Then I noticed from Dusho's scripts documentation he said use OGRETools v1.6.3 for TL1 models and v1.7.2 for TL2 models. So i tried that too but it still gives the 'boneID'  error message :(

Can you suggest anything else I can try Kva?

:) Yeah!

I have not seen you import Alchemist sets.
I tried to import one of the TL1 wardrobe .MESH files (the Alch's Homunculus set) but I got this error message...
You picked a bad set, try another.  8) This homunculus set contains some error, I do not know the solution yet.
