Nope.   That's why he is trying to pimp his Hamachi server.

I do not like negative comments on forums. I think its disrespectful and portrayes a bad image of the members of this forum. If you do not wish for me to post or be a part of this forum, please just ask me to leave.

Pretty sure he didn't mean pimp in a derogatory way, he meant you are getting the word out, spreading the news.

Thanks

Just trying to get the word out, There are still some good sites available for mods and missions. I was having doubts about continuing Swat mapping and modding.

We recently welcomed a new member yesterday, and it looks to be very promising.

Anyone who wishes to continue enjoying Swat3 is welcome to join hamachi servers.

"Don_T_Shoot" Online!!!!!!
I feel as if though I am in the presence of greatness.....

Have you ever tried to create trees, bushes, grass, flowers and even birds flying for Swat 3.
I managed to get my trees looking realistic, not like them sprites and decals but actuall 3d trees, makes maps come to life.
Now my Swat 3 map  is starting to look like an ARMA map...

Well, I wanted to wait till the game was at the virge of dying out and rotting away, to bring up this new gem. LOL (well I have others too)

It was quite simple, it took me days to troubleshoot. The game engine and Maya 6.0 both have their problematic statues and limitations.

The game engine will not allow me to insert objects above 8000 polys, which with the new mod from the swat3lastresort it would be a breeze.
The Maya plugin for gsm's has its problems too, you can't duplicate, copy and paste, nor mirror image no more than 3xs ; if you do, the gsm will be corrupted with extra attributes that will cause the game to crash or the game will display distorted polys. I have tried to delete all by type history, also I have tried to freeze transformations and then reset, before deleting history, and binding skin and exporting. Also during the copy paste, duplicaton will also duplicate attributes for meshes and textures, which are a bitch to remove without Maya crashing to desktop.(and that is on 3 gigz of memory)

The main purpose of the gsm plugins for maya including the skeletons are for creating characters, never occurred to me until I was overwhelmed with the graphics of ARMA and the realism of the trees and other objects that you can use these plugins and skeletons to create objects and import them into your maps.

If you want you can even export gsa's to sway trees, where you can animate sequences for when a player walks through bushes and ferns, figs and small trees.

here are some more pics

I can make it sway more. A recent comment was to record it from a distance, but I wanted to give the upclose shot of it first. The problem I am having with these animations is

1. I have to modify the BF1_Down_F animation to get this to work. I want to create a new CHAR_MODEL called PT1 for these plants. No success.
2. The trees bleed because of the Char_Model. This was the thinking process. If the tree has a life of 100% than the tree will animate as if some sort of ENT from Lord of the Rings. I thought was kewl but not what I was looking for. Also if I just add the attribute that the tree stands still and doesnt move, you can move the tree as you would another character. In addition the tree can be shot and thus the "Die" animation is played. So to get this to work for now I downed the plant using 10% life and use that animation Bf1_Down_F, mod it,  and allow for it to just sway.
3. The tree moans, as if it was in pain and downed.

An option was to attach the skin to the KID skeleton, since they cannot be killed and really don't do much but fidget, and they dont bleed. There are two problems.
   1. They will talk as if it was the kid saying "BOO HOO"
   2. we dont have the GSM importer or the skeleton rig, to import into Maya 6.0, maybe furrycat can provide me with the skeleton to test.

So the only other way is to create a new char_model called PT1 so we can refer to it in the plant name for anmiations and dialog(Wind, Restling leaves) for example
PT1_FIG_TRE.gsm . I was hoping that FurryCat would know somthing about how to do this, since I am unable to get it to work.  
I have created the folder for the swatdata.res file called PT1 with anmiations. and also the PT1_FIG_TRE floder with the GSM's and skin, I have also added the tree in the characters.dat and also the skins.dat file, with no luck.

He may have figured something out since then, but years ago Alien Abductor took on the challenge of adding a new skeleton type to the game.   We both worked on it for a few weeks and could never get the game to acknowledge the new type even after editing every relevant .dat.  New classes of skeleton *seemed* to be hard coded. 

This inability to add a new skeleton class is one of the reasons I never finished the Alien/Predator mod.  And the reason why the Marvin the Martian mod had him in a flying saucer instead of a little guy on the ground like I had wanted him to be.  The Marvin in the mod is essentially and invisible man wearing a flying saucer around his torso instead of any new kind of skeleton/animation class.

I never managed to make a new skeleton class.  Several people have tried without success.

Allow me to send what I have or at least upload it to website for you guys to download and try. If you guys are interested.  The model is simple and coding should be a breeze. The GSA matches the GSM being that it is both for Bf1. At least throw out some Ideas as to what could be the problem, to keep me busy for a few days.

Hello, it is nice to meet everyone.  :)

Thanks to Google, I was able to find your website and your forums. Me and a friend of mine have been trying to play SWAT3 with Hamachi over the last three days, but it wouldn't work. Noone saw each other's game in the LAN multiplayer game list. The Hamachi connection was established and pings reached, so I wonder what went wrong?

I admit my friend used an "internet copy" in order to play with me, while I own the original game. Could that be the problem? Can it be a problem if his game version has a different language than mine?

I would be very happy if someone could help me with this, since I have played SWAT3 for a long time when it was a rather new game, and now I want to go "back to the roots" enjoying multiplayer coop with my friends.

Thank you in advance for your help and reply.

Try this, but in my experience it's pretty hit-or-miss:
http://logmeinwiki.com/wiki/Hamachi:Gaming_over_Hamachi (http://logmeinwiki.com/wiki/Hamachi:Gaming_over_Hamachi)

Also, I haven't actually used anything else, but you might try other similar programs like GameRanger.


Title: Re: Multi-Player Hamachi Servers for Swat 3

Since you offer Hamachi servers for SWAT3 games, I guess Hamachi does work. The problem might be that "internet copy" or problems with patching. My friend already checked the link you offered, Northstar, and did some adjustments, but as I said, Hamachi connection ist stable, and we can ping each other successfully.

I will invite him to one of your Hamachi networks and try to play with him again. If it fails, it'll be most likely his copy I guess.

Thank you for your help so far. :)

I've had Hamachi fail for games all the time, even when I can successfully ping/chat with the person. Hamachi used to work great for me on tons of games but for some reason ever since it became "LogMeIn Hamachi" it hardly works at all. Might be more Windows' fault than the app itself.


Title: Re: Multi-Player Hamachi Servers for Swat 3
Post by: Asakura on 2010-08-17 16:10:27
I see. I was warned by my friend that the new Hamachi does worse, but since I had the new version already and it worked on other games as well, I thought he is wrong. Would be great if the new Hamachi is the actual problem instead of SWAT3 itself. >.<

EDIT: We just tried playing together using the old Hamachi version, but we still were unable to see each others' game in the game list.

we play swat 3 using vpn software and it works perfectly, way better than WON ever did and we don't use hamachi. swat 3 games are on our network every night with an average of 5 players.

Alright, thank you very much for the info. We shall try different VPN Software then. ⎝⏠ ⏠⎠ If you can tell me which software you use, that might be helpful as well.
