Skins, Models and Maps / Re: q2pro - playing with models
« on: Today at 04:21:05 AM »
If you know about the "head" "upper" and "lower" parts of an MD3, then you're aware of the "threads" I mentioned. Quake3's modeling had different "sections" to a model. In Quake2's MD2 format, all of the points/vertices of that model are located in one single portion.

You will not be able to simply rename an MD3 to an MD2 and have it work properly, even if you change the data that indicates the texture location. It will need to be properly converted from MD3 to MD2. And like I said, given than MD3's have different sections to them ("threads" as I said, or "head/upper/lower" as you said), those sections will have to be combined, along with the texture mappings, along with a new texture image with each of the different textures located on one single image.

The biggest problem you'll have here is animation. I have no experience converting animated models from MD3 to MD2. The only models I've ever worked with have been static (weapon, ammo, item) models.

And it's been a good while since I've done any modeling. Luckily, the old QuArK boards are still around. I started a thread there years ago about converting MD3's to MD2. Perhaps it'll help a little more.

he's just a prop that tries to give me covid.


They've already predicted it... no matter what the outcome is, rioting will occur when people don't agree with the outcome for whatever reason.


My bold prediction. Fuck money. Bet me BODY PARTS:

If Trump wins, WIDESPREAD riots in several cities again, people in all black, with tool kits, very organized, all of it traceable on Twitter and Facebook.

If Biden wins... all quiet on the western front.

I'm not sure if Q2pro supports md3 models, but I've heard that a couple of clients do, so maybe it does. I can't remember specifically which ones do though. But... assuming Q2pro is one of the ones that does...

How did you go from having an MD3 model to an MD2?

I placed these files


then started q2pro.exe
wrote set game testmon and started a new game

the soldier was replaced, but with a non textured and non animated floating anubis model

A couple things...

From the little bit of work I've ever done with models, I know that you can't simply relocate a model file (tris.md2) to another folder and have it work. There's a portion of data in the md2 model file that lists the directory in which the model should be found in order to tell the game where to look for the texture associated with that model. So if you've simply used some kind of program to turn the file from a MD3 to an MD2, that could be one of a few issues with the model.

Also, MD3 files are often more complex than MD2 files. (I suck at the correct terminology here) Within the file itself, it can have multiple "threads" in which different parts of a model and it's vertices are isolated. To properly convert an MD3 to MD2, ALL vertices will need to be combined into one single thread and saved.

The fact that you've got multiple PCX files with the model sort of indicates that it's likely the type of MD3 with many "threads" and each one of those usually has it's own texture image. An MD2 will always have only ONE texture image. To properly convert an MD3 to MD2, you'll ALSO need to combine the texture mappings within one model file, and also combine the textures to one single image. It's a tricky process.

And perhaps none of those tidbits even address the real problem you're having. You'll need to provide a little more info. Like... is your original source model a Quake1 "MDL" that you converted to MD3 somehow? Is the original source an MD3 that you converted to MD2? What program are you using to convert models? Perhaps even give a detailed step-by-step list of instructions about HOW you're doing it.

That is what the left is being fed. They eat it up.

He blinks a hell of a lot. That's typically considered a nervous/hyper mannerism that is often an indicator of deception. :humm:

I presume it was a CNN Instant Poll... of CNN viewers?

Every poll I've seen on Twitter so far (at least half a dozen now) had Trump winning. Even polls run by left wing accounts. This is the closest to even that I'd seen (the rest had Trump farther ahead.)

Yeah, when the first day of the riots were jumping off in Atlanta, I almost felt sorry that the CNN building was getting smashed all to the hell and defaced with graffiti by those brainless punks.

I don't feel bad for them anymore. You reap what you sow.

Listened to the debate twice.

I didn't get to see it. I passed out around 6 or so. Somebody post a good link to where I can watch it so I can pretend to be a Democrat and get my news fed to me.

LOL. How is it that these assholes get picked out of hundreds of thousands of television journalists around the country for a prestigious job like working for the legendary 60 Minutes... and they can't seem to understand, or in reality, just acknowledge, the basic mathematics used here in considering the prevalence of testing in relation to the total number of documented cases. If a dickhead like Trump can understand it, why the fuck does everyone else have such a fucking problem with it? The willful ignorance of these fucking pinheads. ::)

(A: They WANT to have a problem with it. But... whatever.)

Anything about the laptop on CNN, MSNBC, etc? *crickets*

Damn. Imagine that.

This is the story now that the "program" will not omit or downplay though.

This is now whats getting blasted left and right lefter.


And check the comments. Almost exclusively everyone is like, "Pffffft, show the WHOLE thing, let us make our own minds up, assholes."

See at first they had me. At first I believed all this shit they've plastered all over every news source about how seemingly EVERYONE is jumping on the lefts bandwagon. But comments on videos like this proves the exact opposite. I think these fucking tools are doing more to hurt the Democratic party than help it, and the ones who are remaining in it are just getting more and more radicalized. And that's a BIG problem. You needed parts of both parties to remain relatively centrist and "independent" in order to get compromise and progress. The middle isn't the middle anymore.

Ummmm... these odds actually exist?

Alaska shouldn't be -550 Republican, it should be -5500 Republican!!! For those unfamiliar with vegas odds, -550 means you have to bet 550 dollars to win 100. But still.... bet 5 million, win 1 million(if you're in that position). Crazy.

Yeah, says Georgia is -165 republican, +135 democrat. We used to be a HELLUVA lot more strictly Republican than that. Goes to show you that all the money the out-of-state Democrat PACs have dumped into democrat candidates here like John Ossoff has actually made some ground.

You look at our surrounding neighbors. In Alabama... -2000 republican. Keep in mind that Alabama has ALWAYS been one of the most conservative southern states of all. South Carolina is -800 republican. Tennessee is -1300 republican. Georgia used to be probably somewhere in the range where SC and Tenn are now. But not since the last 6 years when obviously the democrats have been making conscious intense efforts to fight for control of the states electors. They've done similar things in other states. While the Trump campaign and the Republicans were harvesting facebook data to win an online campaign in 2016, The Democrats declared war on the states themselves and have been using similar data analytics and marketing techniques to gain control of states they feel have significant enough electoral votes to swing the election. Because you sure as hell don't see them pouring that much money into candidates in other states with fewer electoral votes like Idaho and Nebraska.

So when you ask what provoked George Soros to dump 70M into the 2020 election... obviously money gets results.

Jeeeeeezus. 225M as part of a 2B forfeiture. :o What the fuck do they do with that money? If the pill makers are doing dirty deeds to make the money, then the DEA is benefiting from the profits of drugs that are ruining lives and the country they are they are trying to the protect FROM THE DRUGS. Little bit of conflict of interest has to come into play somewhere there, right? Seems like it to me anyway. 225M alone, even if they never recoup the rest of the 2B, is enough to do some "good" somewhere. Would be really interesting to see a full and transparent accounting of that money.

Fucking DEA is mostly a sham anyway. They're more like a "just for show" branch of the justice system. The people want clean drug-free streets, but the ungodly amounts of money the illegal drug trade makes every year makes it a perfect underground pipeline for obtaining funds for illegal and off-the-record military operations. It would be REALLY easy to win the war on drugs if someone wanted to. Everybody knows where the shit comes from. Stop it at the source and you win. Nobody wants to though.

If the source would've insisted on remaining anonymous and would've said Hunter Biden called WW2 vets suckers and losers, it might've been credible?

There's a lot of people that have voted already that haven't heard this information yet.

Some could still vote a few more times and change their mind though. :dohdohdoh:

"10 held by H for the big guy", indeed.

How many times has Biden said, "I'm the guy..."?
