Need help with tank treads

I have created tank treads for my tanks. I added skeleton and skinned the treads but ingame the treads were at wrong place and the texture also moved wrong too. Pls help I almost finish my tank and I also need some old tutorials about tank treads too (I checked the ones on internet but not they not work and some of them are missing)

Re: Need help with tank treads

I forgot to ask but can you give me the link for Bf1942 .con importer ? BMDT has a vehicle importer but I think it is unreliable for some reasons

Not sure what you are talking about. Do you mean some alternative to MDT which has vehicle import function?

Re: Need help with tank treads

I noticed that in 'Andrew's ickle track Tutorial' in the first section there is a line: 'pcon, the tool for importing object code' and in the pictures there was really a window of a program called 'BF1942 .con object importer v0.19'. So, I'm very curious about that program. I have never seen a program like that before. I'm just asking if you have that program or any program like that.

Re: Need help with tank treads

Thanks to your help, my tracks are now work. However, the texture seem moving the wrong way. It didn't move upward but it moved rightward for some reasons. I tried to animate the UV but I think I had done it wrong

I can't help you, unfortunately. Skeletons and skins are what I never touched and never understood. I guess there are no active modders who have skills in animations left

Re: Need help with tank treads

I keep getting from MaxScript in 3ds Max 5.0 "Error: could not find compiled con file."

Was it something I missed?

Thanks in advance to anyone who knows how to use this PCon utility! smile

EDIT: I found it. The Pcon.exe has to be in "\tmpmax". My bad.

Re: Need help with tank treads

I actually got in touch with neddy299 (developer and creator of this script for the .con importer) and he sent me version 0.19b (the latest one) which actually still works in 3ds Max 2020, except the textures doesn't appear at all when imported in 2020, works fine in 3ds Max 5 though.

Maybe in Google Drive, Mediafire or much better upload it in Battlefield 1942's File section on ModDB.

The posts above yours look like a strange joke in the form of a provocation for me, actually

Re: Need help with tank treads

The only problem with Google Drive is that it doesn't display the percentage and remaining time when you're downloading a file (this was particularly true while using Chrome), especially if the filesize was in gigabytes.

But for a smaller filesize, it wouldn't be a problem though.

Re: Need help with tank treads

I could upload it on any hosting service. But I thought it would be better to host it on a site like bfmods.com. No idea, but I will check with the management over there.

EDIT: I just sent the management of bfmods.com a private message regarding this tool. Hopefully I get a reply soon. If anybody wants this tool right away, here's a link to MediaFire.

Re: Need help with tank treads

Happy new 2020.

Right now I've got a problem getting this script to work in Gmax. Any clue why it says that the "DOSCommand" and "SetiniSetting" is not available features?
