Hello,


I'm working on making new pieces for the editor, but it looks like I'm about about 1/18th the way there. :roll:
I've made the images for the peices, but how do any of you edit .tri files? Or create them?
Thanks!

You should use a 3D modeling application like Blender, 3DS Max, Maya, etc to create your own 3D model. Then you must export this model to TRI file format (we provide scripts for Blender and 3DS) at the right scale, with a reasonable amount of vertice (3D points).

Then, you can add your TRI file to "mania.cfg" configuration file and create new tracks.

It's pretty easy in facts, but it requires some (very small) 3D modeling skills.

Hello,

I looked on Raydium website and in SDK, and I cannot find scripts for Blender?
Where do I find such scripts?
Thanks!

You may also obtain the scripts from the Subversion repository:

Best regards,

Exactly. And "triEXP-B2-36.py" is the one you need here, when using Blender. This file is in the "raydium" directory of the SDK, too.

Another script is available, directx2tri.php, when using other modeling tools. It allows you to convert DirectX text mesh (.x, that most modelers exports) to tri files. It's some old, not very tested and quiet experimental code, but hey, with some luck ...

Tip: Use Blender :)

Hello,

I took the links you gave me and put them into Python files,
I then put the Python scrips into Python25\Tools\Scripts.
However I cannot import/export the any Mania Drive file types (.tri,.mni,etc)
Where/How do I put the scripts into Blender and get them to work?
Thanks!

Hello

copy scripts in blender/.blender/scripts directory. You'll find raydium import and raydium export in file import and export menu of blender.

Have a nice day

Hello,


On my PC: C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender, there is no .blender folder inside of my "C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender" folder?
Sorry for all these questions, :roll: .

Thanks!

To be honest, there's no easy way for 3DS ... Blender quickly becomes our main 3D creation tool.

Our old documentation about 3DS and Raydium is here:
- http://wiki.raydium.org/wiki/3DSVersTri
- http://wiki.raydium.org/wiki/DirectXVersTri

It's in french, but it seems of OK for you ;)

Good luck, because I think that all this was not tested since a loooong time ago :)

Sorry of those noob questions :( but if i understnad good

ivcon.exe truc.3ds truc.tri

is what i should type (it works same for another game :wink: )

but what about this :

xfennec@Julien temp$ ../ivcon T80.3DS voiture.tri
Found objet: FD, texture to use ? : avant.tga
Found objet: t80/runko, texture to use ? : peinture.tga
Found objet: Camera01?, texture to use ? :
Found objet: t80/gear, texture to use ? : rgb(1,1,1)

is that something we must type somewhere ? or just the contant of our TRI converted file ?

PS : (what is a size of a "square" on 3dsmax please ? i don't wanna resize it a lot to find the good size of a tile...i hope you understand what i mean)
