3DZ Modelling and RS sequence (limited)

Recommended Posts

What can experienced users tell me about EAW 3DZ modelling, RS and tools?

I'm not trying to build anything specific and I don't have a whole lot of time to learn, But highlights would be favorable.

Like I know for EAWv1.2 there are specific programs used. I think I have them all. Unfortunately some are DOS , some are WindowsOS usage.
I know you plan out the model before you begin using the 3DZ Studio program (which one is best?)
How would I keep the RS in check as I add to the model?


Thank you in advanced for the help and tips.

I'm still working on the 3DZ Modeling Help Doc I have made much progress, however I have not received much recent help besides a bunch from EAWPRO developer , VBH.
All other information is coming from old threads and old web sites.
I do have some notes and small tutorials but none of the ones listed above.

I will only get so far with the help doc and then I will eventually need to get more info or questions answered before the rewritten edited text will possibly come to a halt.

I'm eager to complete this document as it will help new modelers or hopefully existing ones as well.

I have made much progress on this help doc. However, If anyone is waiting for me to complete it, please don't wait to long as I have taken a break from it.

I have to learn the software provided to fill out steps and notes about the 3DZ Studio program.

Do I think the doc will got into very complicated stuff?,  perhaps a slite step in that direction, but the information out there is complcated to decipher at this point. I need to find time to learn.

Well I still wait for help with this 3DZ modeling doc, here is the mess I have now. I pretty much ran out of time to indulge and it got to complicated for little o-me.



(Still in need of help, however I've heard the RS explanation and use is ridiculously hard)

      Just a note,
      Normally running EAW natively on WinNT machines, EAW won't run or correctly if the filename is not eaw.exe. (Campaigns/Careers will not save correctly)
      However after some test when running EAW within a Wrapper Program you can have as many game.exe's in the games folder you want, they just need to be named differently, such as eaw12.exe, eaw12a.exe, eaw12x.exe, eaw126e.exe etc.
      (You should at least have one exe, preferably the standard 1.2 as eaw.exe in your games folder so the noCD function works with it).
      You just have to have a shortcut within the wrapper program pointing to each exe.
      (I've added this and more info to my web site now and continue to explore more ideas)

      Now that EAW is running well in the DxWnd wrapper, its has been quit here. :)
      Anyhow, anyone still having issues when EAW is run in the DxWnd wrapper (and that had DL my custom profile settings for that wrapper)?

      New Help Document of sorts. (I'm still working on it)
      This doc tells you the three methods I know to have multiple installs of EAW.
      Most of us just to full installs and copy the game folder to make new installs. The other methods are not much use anymore, other than for testing stuff out.

      Anything going on with EAW?
      I get plenty of visits still to my site. I wonder if the few pilots are getting enough help?

      If you have the GOG release, the Campaign Films (The cut scenes) will tend to crash the game during Career Modes when they go to play the .smk movies. This is true for the standard MPS EAW Game as well, just more common.
      You can download a 'empty' MOVIES.CDF file and drop it into your EAWv1.2GOG version game folder and it will allow the game to get past the cut scene, by skipping it.
      Get the Empty Movies.CDF here at CombatACE in the EAW Downloads if you need it. (Its 7-zip so make sure you have that program to un zip it.)
