Halo CE General Discussion » AI Driving Nov 18, 2017 11:16 PM (Total replies: 2)

AI will not drive on their own completely. It must be completely scripted from starting point to end point.

All that really happens is there is a couple settings in the vehicle that allow the AI to get in and drive at a certain speed (say like a warthog, which isnt set up for AI driving, will need these settings added to em. Look at the warthog from Takedown: Project Lawson). Then all that happens is the ai is placed into the driver seat and then follows a command list from the first point to the last point.

Look up a scripting bible, then look up these useful scripts:
unit_enter_vehicle (if you want to use a biped instead of an ai)
ai_attach (if you want to use a biped instead of an ai)
ai_command_list_by_unit (if you want to use a biped instead of an ai)

The script should be including with the Project Lawson download so you can prolly look up the script itself. Just search for those certain commands in the script until you find something that looks like it

Yes I'm still working on this.

I believe I will probably end up using data-files. Some dumb things are preventing me from keeping my tagspace down (animations in cutscenes for examples) and I'm needing to split the files up into... well, a lot of files. I can either use data files or give you like 7 yelo files each at like 500mb. Yeah. So data-files most likely will be used, especially since I no longer have to fight with SPV3 over it.

Also official discord discussion is within the Rebel Army discord https://discord.gg/tQfSzDr

I mean I like the idea but when it came to something like CE3 we wanted to do it 2-4 times a year. We didn't so the one that we did would be a big event. Not just another thing.

I'd just cut down. Bi-monthly. Once a quarter. Etc.

Well, we've opened a new monthly competition for asset creation:
Every other month is themed.

Delete the current .sound file and try again. Like I stated, tool will look at and read the current .sound file in the location to see if it needs to compile the sound with different settings.

It shouldnt matter. Assuming its a custom sound, you recompile it the same way as you first did. The only difference is tool will read the current .sound file and realize its a dialog file and create mouth data.

Halo CE General Discussion » AI Mouth movements Oct 25, 2017 09:39 PM (Total replies: 14)

Set the sound to script_dialog at the top of the sound file. Recompile the sound. There should some bytes for mouth data at the bottom after recompiling

No but I managed to fix this. Another Question I had was how do you use lines for making actors move their mouths to your voice recordings?
