Animation questions (TES & Scripts)
      #2948767 - 08/19/04 08:39 PM

OK! I want to play around with various NPC animations in game, and ran into a brick wall.

1) How to change the animation group of an NPC in TES?
I went to "Animation" for the NPC but, it seems STATIC and I can't change it.
idle4, idle5 walk forward-that's it. Went to "Character" and that does nothing. Can't find a Tut & nothing much in the Help files.
I did a animation test script (from sfd8) on 1 Male and 1 Female standing side by side.
It was like watching "Simon Says".
Now I can't fiquire out how to write "Simon Says, Stop that!!"
which creates another Boggle for me:

2) With "PlayGroup" or "LoopGroup" I can't fiqure out how to make the NPC "reset".
In other words "Simon Says, Stop that!!"
(Did you know that if you do "PlayGroup, DeathKnockOut, 1" then do "PlayGroup, SwimKnockOut, 1"
the NPC will look like it's doing a move from the Karate Kid Movie. HyiiiYaaaa!!!)
But it stays in that position.
What I ultimately want to find is that animation which makes the NPC to go on hands and knees.
(This will make it look like the NPC is begging.) But then reset it. I'm close to doing this-Any help would be appreciated-Thanks.

(Must be a dumb question I guess)

FYI Additional info:
Went through just about every animation (only minor differences between Male & Female...like idle5)
Code:
elseif ( count == 9 )
AIWander 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 100, 0, 0, 0, 0
MessageBox "Idle 5 , 100"
set count to ( count + 1)



Found and made note of many other animations. I can call them through script, but no matter what I try, they will not go back/reset to any normal animation.
Still can't change anything in TES. Maybe when I get the GOTY version, that mat change.
Sorry if these are dumb questions, still can't figure it out though. TIA

Hey Wizthis, I got one answer 4u!

Oh really-hey thanks Wiz..what is it.

In "Packages" Select package-open the pull down-and you can adjust it from there-I just found it myself.

Well Thank you Wiz for the great answer. How about the script question?

Sorry Wiz...don't know that one yet. Maybe someone ELSE can help you.
