Okay so it works.

Sweet!

This will be massively useful in fixing a lot of really crappy DM/collision meshes from really ancient IL2 models.

It might also streamline the process of implementing collision meshes and damage models when creating new objects for the game, which appears to be a step which really messes up a lot of inexperienced modders.

Corollary: As the amount of beta-testing/user-testing approaches infinity, the number of flaws left undiscovered approaches zero.
Corollary: An infinite number of idiots, given an infinite amount of time, will eventually reveal all possible flaws in a given design.

Conversely:

What's intuitive to the creators of a product is not necessarily intuitive to people who must use, maintain, or support the end product.
Creators cannot imagine all the possible ways in which their product might be implemented or used.

Let me know if it gets a lot of use.

I could implement some more mesh reduction systems, the one I have used is good for generic meshes but isn't the best when it comes to simple meshes.

No need to reinvent the wheel.

Maya, 3ds Max, Blender, and similar programs have native tools which allow you to simplify objects by eliminating polygons, etc.

The only trick is that you need to be careful about simplifying too far, particularly if you've been good about keeping polys to a minimum while you design.

Hi Stainless

I find IL2Modder very useful to find and correct errors in msh files.  :)

But for this error I don't understand what might be wrong:



Msh file at row 2108:



Any ideas?

Best regards

Apparently there's a mismatch in the line numbers.
IL2Modder might not count empty lines or might make other things...
Actually it's complaining about Error line "[LOD2_Materials]" which indicates that before that line, certain other lines with numeric values are missing.

Thanks Mike

I removed empty lines and lines beginning with //.
Then line 2108 is this one, which looks ok to me.
-0.343382 -0.291168 -0.424908 -0.526639 0.76259 -0.375642

I've also compare Engine2_D1.msh with Engine2_D2.msh which doesn't give any error message, but I haven't been able to figure out what might be wrong.

Please upload the two meshes somewhere so we can all look at the same thing.

The error is saying that there is a bad character in a number somewhere, or bad spacing

so 0.OOO0001 woud create that crash (Three o's instead of three zeros)

Thanks guys!

I was finally able to find the problem in the mesh file:

row 4494:
[LOD2_ShFaces]
14 12 16--

But the IL Modder MSH Loader Error Handler says the error is in [LOD2_Materials] Line number 2108?

This is just so cool  8) I will defenitly try this version.
It will be of great help in doing fixes to the models and also to paint my skins!

THANK YOU Stainless ! You are the best  ]cheers[
