To add or edit animations in SA models:


Create model with texture for animation, hot point should be in Top-Left corner (first frame for TV Screen Animation).

Drag and drop model to RW Animator.

Surprised by the lack of talk on this, it's a nice extra detail to add atmosphere to the game.

Triple Penetration

Considering how many serious RW mods are left (and by serious I mean on VCStoPC or Gostown scale), I am not even surprised that there's lack of talk.


Tools subforum doesn't even have that many frequent topics/posts too.

Yes, but I was stupid kid, that can't create anything. When age is around 20, brain works much better, but now is too late confused.gif.

I don't understand you people. Why do you want these VCS tools that so much?! Team don't have to share them, because they were made by their own (I know, I know - by HackMan128) and evrybody from team already said - It won't be released. So they don't need to share it with people, where most of them will convert some buildings / peds or anything else and call it "by -put here your name-". And I think I know reason of that - convertment to Super Powerful Best Advanced Profesional Great Awesome RAGE Engine. If you want to convert something from VCS, do a tool by your own. If I remember good, "IVSA" also used ยฎ โ„ข tools, and almost none of them were shared.


Anyway, great thing HackMan icon14.gifcookie.gif !

True, I remember doing this in my old SA modding days, with 3ds max scripts.


You have to agree this comes a little late after the game has been out for 7\8 years, it's not surprising not much people care.

Oh well, guess we'll have to find a way to use it on VCS PC, shame to let it go to waste. wink.gif

this is awesome i like that you made nice easy interface for the tool, and the TV in first VCS safehouse would be a nice extra feature (with fake METV music video) colgate.gif

So.. I guess it's not the best way to make complete TV shows with this, as it will be f*ckin' huge. biggrin.gif But nice work on the tool! It could be used in so many ways! smile.gif
