Game crashes on load object!

Recommended Posts

Yo, when i try to load my custom object (dff) the game totally crashes. The files only 182kb. It's basically a piece of land I modeled in 3ds. Similar to the one located below...

http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?show ... 36&hl=Land

Here is my code...

function landSpawn () 
dff = engineLoadDFF ( "cardboardbox4.dff", 0 ) 
engineReplaceModel ( dff, 1221 ) 
createObject ( 1221, -2320.8413085938, -1630.1979980469, 483.3268737793 ) 
end 
addCommandHandler ( "island", landSpawn )

The only thing I can think of is that the model is unusually complex, try the same thing with just a box.

Tried a small box and it definitely still fails. I'm modeling in 3ds max and using Kam's DFF export. Could it possibly be something wrong with the collision file? I made a blank collision file and exported the .dff with it so yeah... but maybe I need the collision file somewhere in the resource or code?

well anyone knows with basic GTA editing for a custom model to work it needs a .txd and a .col to function proply.

so you will need to add this

  
txd = engineLoadTXD ( "cardboardbox4.txd" ) 
engineImportTXD ( txd, 1221 ) 
col= engineLoadCOL ( "cardboardbox4.col" ) 
engineReplaceCOL ( col, 1221 )

[/code]

You don't need a collision file or a txd, you can import a dff on it's own creating an untextured model.

Hoss this is very strange because I've recently created a model in gmax, not got 3DS yet :P, and used Kams scripts and it worked fine....

Well, in Kams 3ds Max one you can't export the model as a dff without 'specefying' a col (collision) file. And all I did was just make a blank collision file just to export it. Possibly somthing wrong with the code? Because my friend put it all together...

Isn't there a tick box to 'Skip Col' ? I have that, if you want upload the model somewhere as .3ds and I can try saving it for you.

Well, does gmax support 3ds? Maybe it's failing because there is a collision file on it but something is'nt right? Got to be another way, but I only know how to model hight maps in 3ds. I'm at school right now so later i'll see if theres a tick.

Try to open .col file (which you created) with CollEditor (also available on gtaforums.com) and see if collision exist.

If 'Skip Col' doesn't help, try to export the object mesh to .col and then attach it to dff while exporting to .dff.

I tried with a simple box and it works, but couldn't load the textures. I've posted about it somewhere in other topic.

Wow Twig thanks! Definitely worked now! Would you please mind telling me what you did or sending me that plug in you have for 3ds max or w/e? I got 3ds Max 2008. Thanks a lot! Just make a quick tutorial starting from 1) Make your 3d model, and then after that so on! :) Thanks again!

I used gmax to do that along with kams script, all I did was assign the GTA material included with kams and export it with the 'ignore col' box ticked.

cba to do a picture tutorial....
