Compiled Path Nodes

Recommended Posts

NathanHenry

Yeah dude Cerbera is right you should post a topic somewhere in the Mod Showroom about your SA Path Editor tool in english of course. This is amazing.

3D paths builder would be a great addition to it, once the core is made stable. smile.gif

I think the core is pretty stable, I've ported the core to C# and implemented a try/catch/finally block, all the editing will take place in the GUI-thread.

 

Woops. Sorry for double posting.

That's good work, I'm glad someone is finally working on an editor for it. smile.gif

 

I don't understand why you need to change VB. Net into C#, they work on exactly the same principal (That is, assuming you are using VB.NET and not an older version)

 

You will get alot more speed if you program this straight into C smile.gif, Minus the error checking.

I'm changing to C# because I'm not very good in C++, so I'm using C# as a step in between of C# and C++ (dutch: een opstapje van C# naar C++). (And C# has unsinged integers/longs and so, and VB hasn't)

 

After it's completely ported, I'll try to learn some C++. (Stopped porting to C#, check the Path Editor-topic)

I've analysed them, using a hex editor, and using my path editor, but I saw that your section 6 is yust FF FF FF FF etc. That would mean section 6 isn't needed to make the paths working smile.gif .

steve m. has written down in the first post, that section 6 the

Link lengths in full units is.

i've set it to 255, because i was to lazy to calculate the distance between 2 nodes biggrin.gif

But you have to calculate them, otherwise path finding won't work.

A note about the train and tracks dat files in SA

 

Both train.dat and train2.dat are NOT used by the game since these files are relicts of

previous games (they are identical with the files of the same name in the Vice City data folder where they didn't play any role as well for there was no rail system in VC, of course; I think they come from the first 3d GTA but am too lazy to install and check). This has been tested: I cut both files, but the game didn't complain about it and I haven't experienced any problems, no abnormalities have occured so far.

 

However, tracks.dat files are necessary for proper running of the game. If you cut them, delete them or make a mess in them, your game will get frozen or an error message will appear indicating that something went wrong in SA application. I've found out how the file tracks.dat works, but I keep testing it now and because I want to provide more complex info about it, I don't intend to post it right now.

 

I've been working on a new railroad through SA that would connect villages but it is a real pain in my a.s. Any further development depends on my spare time.

If you mean SA's car/ped paths, I'll continue working on that in a few weeks. I'll finish my tool, and then write a short tutorial on how to use it.

I didn't have time to continue working on my tool either, but it's still too premature to be uploaded. Still needs much testing, and the car stuff was missing several things. But I still hope I'll be able to release it somewhen this summer.

sorry guys, i noticed the 'Add paths from another .npf' was always gray.

i looked in my code und saw the code is incomplete, so i finished the procedure for adding with multi-import.

All file format information moved to the wiki (and heavily extended, especially sec 2). I've been sitting on this stuff way too long...

 

Wiki: GTA SA Paths

 

Also, here is an early and incomplete alpha of my Path Tool. No proper documentation or tutorials available, please refer to the readme (and possibly the file format specs). For in-game examples see the test path releases in Myriad's paths topic.

ooh cool I'll take a look at the wiki and the tool. Probably not the best person to do paths for MI, but meh, it's fun to have a go myself.

Hi everybody.

Mr Steve M, Mr Ocram, hello.

 

One more time, that guys shows how incredible they are.

 

Well, i have been experimenting with both tools. But no results sad.gif . My fault, of course.

Ok, let me show my doubts:

 

user posted image user posted image

 

I think i know how to compile the txt. Check if this is right: I Need to open the console , promp, and then:

1º cd my foler

2º run Executabletool(exe) textFile.txt ENTER

 

user posted image

 

I hope so.

 

Well, nother weird thing: if i delete all the original nodes from gta3.img, the game dont crashes and i still see all the cars in game. I am talking about my Speed Island map. I cant understad where is the engine reading that data. Really, its so weird.

 

I hope somebodycould help me. Thank you so so much.

Ocram, Steve, you are the ENGINE BREAKER !!! rah.gif

Damn, i have a troubble.

I dont know what´s happening. I already got it, peds + cars, but i dont know what i am doing wrong, because, when i try to do a more elaborated path, and mixing peds and cars....in game, it doesnt work confused.gif

Can somebody tell the rules of the game? Maybe i am doing a wrong line, i have no idea mercie_blink.gif

If you want to have a circuit then yes, you have to close the spline. The name doesn't matter, that's just for you to distinguish your paths. However, Max seems to export them sorted alphabetically. It's generally recommended to export paths for big roads first, so the small roads get joined to the big ones at junctions, not vice versa, and alphabetical naming might be useful here.

Yep, correct.

Weird indeed. Did you also delete the separate ones in the paths folder? (Although I'm sure those aren't used.)

I see the highway flag checked in that one screenshot. Better use only default settings for testing, since I think I never tested that flag. Use default settings, test if paths work, and then play with the settings until it stops working. Oh, and having cars and peds mixed works fine for me, so you might be doing something wrong. For troubleshooting, you can disable paths in the text file temporarily by changing the keywords "vehicle_path" or "ped_path" to something else, then that section will just be skipped by the parser. Theoretically it should work.
