So new question.

myplayer and enemy. myplayer(me) and enemy distance calculation -> enemy oriented towards me and come towards me(animation 1 is used using api)-> when the enemy is enough closed(distance calculation) the animation changes to attack-> then collision detection etc and my life decreases and all those stuff etc? is that possible?

Hi jaysonbourn,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

The answer to most of your questions is "yes", what you ask for is possible, except for the export to Quake map format.

Regarding everything else, I highly recommend that you check out the Cafu demo, the documentation, other details on the website, and this FAQ: Is Cafu right for our game of genre "..."? These will help you forming an opinion about Cafu and it's suitability for your project.
Best regards,
Carsten

Hi,

In short: Yes, 3rd person views are possible.

Please note that the Cafu Engine is currently undergoing very big changes: we're replacing the old entity class hierarchies with an entity component system. With the old class hierarchies, 3rd person views were difficult to implement, but the new component system makes this much easier.

For more details, I recommend that you read thread More about Component Systems. Also, I've talked a bit more about it in this post (especially note the paragraph roughly in the mid that is about 3rd person models).

How to do i get support if I am stuck??

As you did -- post here! :up:
Best regards,
Carsten
