[GTA IV] Player Rigging Tutorial

Out of interest can we make the head models appear in cutscenes yet? Or is it a GIMS thing? Because at the moment I only see floating teeth and hair.

About the hair:

I think is not a bug. If you dont have the complete shape of the head (only head) always you see like that.

If The hair is transparent, and you dont have the complete head you see the face (players face) in the inside. but remember that only one side of the mesh is textured.

If you go inside a building with the trainer you can not see the building from the inside, only the outside of others.

I think this law applies to all models in the game.

But if you have the entire head and also the hair, maybe it is another problem.

Sorry if dont helps. blush.gif  dozingoff.gif  lol.gif

 

Nope, it's a bug

my sh*tty drawn head model

Oh, really strange.

I do not understand why, if you have hair as a separate mesh, and applies the alpha channel. that this should affect the head if it is a different model? suicidal.gifmonocle.gif

Your drawing is good indeed. tounge.gif

Two Problems.

 

1. After doing every assigned step, In-game, there's nothing there.

 

2. I can't assign textures to the material (like Diffuse, Bump, etc.) Because afterwards it gets rid of the "Ped and gta_ped" thing, which disables the export option.

1) Make sure to do edit mesh, polys, select all, set id 1.

 

This should fix both problems, maybe not the second, which i dont know why it would do that.

I'm using 3ds MAX 2011, For along time so far. And I've no clue what setting ID's is supposed to mean. I'm Clueless.

I Know about the Compact/Slate dilemma, It wasn't that. I've already fixed it, just I found out that I can't do anything to change the hair_00*_u.wdr's. So Instead I just changed the Robber Beanie/Mask.

Thanks to this tutorial!! My Superman model was featured on Kotaku, G4TV, PCGAMER, and GamesRadar! None of this could have been possible without this tutorial, I just wanted to say thanks for putting it together! Guess I picked the right character to convert ;-)

I had the same problem just go to tools then open container explorer delete all but the last one make sure you save before you do so just in case you delete your model by mistake hope that helps

 

also for the can contain only ped shaders make sure under material editor you selected gta iv material instead of using stander or any other and assign material to model the third little icon under material that looks like a sphere with a arrow pointing to a cube

It's obviously not 2 sided. Polygons can only be seen from one side, you have to duplicate the coat, and flip the polygons.
