Update coming! Brave testers needed!

Summary and instructions

Finally the patch is just about ready for everyone to enjoy. First we want to get it out on a smaller scale to make sure everything is working as expected, and so we turn to our fabulous forum members. Smile

Download the zip file (see guide below), extract the contents of the redist folder to the folder where you installed the game, overwriting any files in the process. You might want to do a backup first. To run the game, run AmnesiaTest13XXXX.exe (where XXXX is the date of the latest update version).

The big new thing is of course support for FBX files and collada models exported in 3D Max. Just load the models up in the editors and all should work like magic.

There's also a new entity type (Enemy_ManPig) and a couple of neat new script functions for you to enjoy.

Some entities are updated, due to a change in how bones are loaded. The change is minimal and in most cases using the old version would only produce an error in the log file and have no other visible effect. The exception being slime_anim_wall and slime_anim_ceiling. Those will not behave properly unless updated.

Give it a go, and post any issues you encounter here in the thread.


Step-by-step guide

First things first
  1. Download the zip file (updated 11/11/13)
  2. (optional but strongly recommended) Backup your TDD install directory.
  3. Extract the redist folder into your TDD install directory. Replace files when asked to.

Copying the AMFP stuff (optional)
  1. Make copies of the entities, static_objects and textures folders located in your AMFP install directory. Do NOT place them in the TDD folder just yet.
  2. Search through the folder copies for .msh and .anm and remove any files you find. Preferably use the Windows search functionality for this, so you don't have to manually look through all the folders.
  3. Now you can safely copy the folders to the TDD folder. Do NOT replace anything this time, you only want the stuff that's unique to AMFP.
  4. Either delete the .ent files for the new enemies (located in entities/enemy) or open them with the new ModelEditor and resave them.



Issues, notes and such

Where are the AMFP entities located?
The zip file does not contain any assets, you have to copy those from wherever you installed AMFP.

Trouble loading an entity file?
If you've copied the entity from elsewhere, first thing to try is to see if the model has a .msh file in its folder, and if so remove it and try again.
If that doesn't work, note that the AMFP .ent files are not supported! While most should work anyway, if you run into problems you must import the model into the model editor and create a new entity file for it.

Do NOT replace any TDD .ent file with the AMFP equivalent!
At least not without thinking it through first. Many .ent files from AMFP have different properties than they do in TDD and you risk breaking compatibility with the main game as well as custom stories.

Yes, the AMFP models should play nice with the update. Smile

RE: Update almost ready! Brave testers needed!

When running AmnesiaTest130925.exe there is no custom_stories button. Is this intended?

Also, it doesn't seem like I can load any files from AAMFP.
I overwrote all files it asked for, including the level editor. (I know this, because my computer didn't recognize the editor).

What did i do wrong?

Oops.
I'll get a new version up tomorrow. In the meantime you can change your user cfg file so it directs you to the correct map when pressing start new game.

All amfp entities and statics directly imported into respective places.

To clarify, support has been added for the model format used in AMFP, not the entity files. While it should be okay in most cases, certain models might need to be imported by the model editor and have a new ent file created.

Regarding odd positions and sizes, I can check it out tomorrow, but there are definitely some... odd entities in the AMFP folders.

Edit: One thing you want to make sure is that you don't have any msh or anm files from AMFP in those folders.

RE: Update almost ready! Brave testers needed!

Ok. Been doing a little testing with the enemies.

I was able to place the wretch, the engineer and the teslapig in my map and play it.
Problem: When spottet by any of them, they flicker between the running animation and the idle animation.
They don't move an inch.

Placing the dinkywretch makes the editor crash.

The man_pig doesn't have any texture, expept for a pink stretched one. It has the grunt sounds.
It moves though, but as it comes close to the player, it stops doing anything but sounding like a grunt.


What you're saying is we're supposed to delete any .msh files from the folders, when we import the models?

Patrik, when the engine is updated, remain to update the engine scripts page, so everyone knows where to find them Smile

RE: Update almost ready! Brave testers needed!

Really happy with the scripting additions in general, especially the ability to manipulate positions and mass. I am a little disappointed that there are no trig functions or sqrt exposed [a trivial wrapper to some of the more common stuff in math.h/cmath would be a lifesaver - especially now positions are exposed!] - having to roll your own is a headache, inaccurate and pretty slow Sad

Going to have a play about with the exposed functions later tonight / tomorrow and will post back if i come across anything that hasn't been mentioned yet.

Download just stops at 4.36mb, says it is complete, then fails to open because it is incomplete. Wat. Tried multiple times. This just me?
