Okay, so you have your specular, diffuse and normal maps and a model all ready to go... so now what?

Updated 10/21/2004


EDIT by Goliath:

Well, you have to wait if you want to follow my tutorial... the export / def file information has changed with the release of Doom3, so the tutorial doesn't work anymore.

I'll update the tutorial as soon as I have the time and will re-post the links.

Well bugger all. It seems Maya 4.0 is not able to export models to MD5 with Doom3 anymore... which means I can't export any Maya files to see if the tutorial works.

I think the id guys were using Maya 4.5 when they finished D3, so anyone with 4.5...

EDIT: Well, even with 4.5, it won't work (Thanks for testing, Brian, if you ever read these boards). I should have noticed this before, but, quite simply, the Maya import .dll doesn't exist... period. I imagine we'll be getting that w/ the SDK, but for now, we're S.O.L. unless we can talk Cat into updating his MD5 exporter for Maya....

I just made an update to the tutorial with a few more items in the Troubleshooting section.

Yet another update, now that I understand how the whole "origin" bone works.

Link does not work... File on that link when you hit download takes you to a page that says file doesnt exist...

Are you sure? I just tried it and got to the PCGameMods page that's hosting the file. You might have just hit a bad spot?
