XML parts question

Recommended Posts

I'm using the parts XML for the first time. I'm trying to animate brake pedals. As far as I can tell brake pedals haven't been included in the in the default makemdl.parts.xml. I added the following to animate the left brake pedal and named the model part accordingly. It's a bit of a shot in the dark :)l_brake_pedal (A:BRAKE LEFT POSITION,percent)...Also, here's the animation section out of the model.x file... Animation anim-l_brake_pedal { { l_brake_pedal } AnimationKey { 0; 2; 0;4;-1.000000,0.000000,0.000000,0.000000;;, 100;4;-0.981627,0.000000,-0.190809,0.000000;;; } }This is the error I get...Generate BGL...ERROR: Animation trigger r_brake_pedal not found, mapped to "userdefined8"ERROR: Animation trigger l_brake_pedal not found, mapped to "userdefined8"Error!Error!Can someone spot what I'm doing wrong? Also, I don't understand the difference between

Danny,Not being an XML programmer but from what I see in the makemdl.parts.xml file, it appears that generally your code should look something like this:l_brake_pedalBRAKE LEFT POSITIONpercent200Most of the codes like your:(A:BRAKE LEFT POSITION,percent)are framed with I keep looking for a better explaination of these things on the M$ site but as you probably know, no joy! We just have to spend a lot of time experimenting and working with others till we get something that works.Good luck,Lou

Thanks Lou,I tried something similar to yours using......BRAKE LEFT POSITIONpercent...But it didn't work. I have a feeling the problem is in my model. I'll try some simple cubes to see if that helps and try using your example exactly.BTW, my last one looked like this...... (A:BRAKE LEFT POSITION, percent) 1 *...The x1 is just to make sure it would work in the brackets. ..But still something

The brakes pedals are finally working! Lou, I used your XML code verbatim and it worked as advertised :) The confusing problem for me was actually unrelated. I'm using another 3D program instead of GMax. I have to go in and edit the model.x by hand before the animations will compile. There were some negative numbers in the Animation keys which asserted when I tried to build. Anyhow, the animations are all wonky now, but they are working. I will re-orientate the pedals to eliminate any negative keys. Thanks for the insight.Danny
