View Full Version : Engine question...
Hm. i wonder. does OFP engine support hit marks like those when you fire on the ground on buildings/objects? And if so, what is needed for it to work? CfgModels selection? or what. I made a few new targets for a shooting range which i want to see where i hit. not just THAT i hit. Hopefully im missing something simple here..

Hmmm, I have made some new targets already & can see the hits....
Did you generated Components for Geometry & added weight(s) ?
I assume Hubba was talking bout these little texture craters that appear after shooting the ground, and not the little dust "clouds" that are generated after you hit a building with a rifle.
Hm.. i do see the bullet impact. so those LOD's work.. what im looking for is the little mark left by the bullet. Like when you fire at the ground, it leaves small bullet holes. I dunno if its possible even on a building.

Ouuu, sorry, have seen only those 'dust' clouds...
Didn't tried to implement the bullet holes (craters) yet...
In class CfgNonAIVehicles are used simulations 'Crater' & 'CraterOnVehicle' & simulations are hidden inside EXE, so I'm not sure if it's possible to redefine them - didn't studied this stuff, so don't know...
if anyone has borland c++ 5 you will be able to access any executable and can read the programming involved in making it... i haven't tried it as my comp is packed for shipping because im moving as you may of seen on other threads but i can open any exe... if your saying that most of this stuff is in the exe file then what kind of information can i pull out and would bis approve?
Hehehe... Borland C++ will NOT regenerate the sourcecode used to make the exe. What you can do is examine the machine instructions (Assembler) and try to figure it out. But first of all... that is a MAJOR undertaking, and WAY beyond what i want to do with this game.
And last but not least, it's probably a violation of the license agreement you got with the game and agreed to when you installed it. Usually you add a clausule that the executables may not be modified in any way except by official updates from the publisher/creator (Ie. BIS).
So instead of trying to figure out how to hack the exe beyond recognition, lets instead ask the creators of the game if it is possible to see bullet craters on objects other than the ground. And if so, how do we use that feature, what do we define in our cpp's or p3ds'.
So BIS, is it possible? =)

Sorry, but I don't deal with EXEs - licence violation !
i thought so thats why im noy going to go there but it was an idea.....
Im sure you can figure it out soon....
But another thing is, is that they work when they hit the ground so maybe there are lods in making the islands?
Which is why i was hoping some of the BIS people could take a quick rest from Resistance and have a peek at this topic http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Wether or not this "crater" as you call it appear ( those texture layers are also called "decals") depends on how you defined the vertice properties/settings i think. Because their is a selection if you want either "normal", "decal" or "radio12".
I wonder what the last one could be...but i guess "decal" means that decals are added to the models after impact of bullets.. http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
aha! Gotta test this when i get back home.

dont bother, "decal" turns the block you are changing into a "sprite"
spites are the things that allways face you no matter where you stand... so no go on that idea
