Hi k12,

Right now, it is pretty difficult to make new player models for Cafu.
So far, the easiest method is to re-skin one of the existing player models that ship with Cafu; they're all based on Half-Life 1 player models.

Due to this awkward situation, we're currently working on a new Model Editor (a part of the CaWE application), see Project Ideas for some details, and the Timeline for the current development steps.

When the model editor is done, you'll be able to use models with any skeleton as the player model. (And you will be free to choose which bone you attach e.g. a weapon to.)

Any help with the development would be much welcome! :up:

Yes, the Model Editor will be like this - and much better.
As soon as I'm back at office, I'll post some pre-release screenshots.
Best regards,

Hehe, thanks!

Hi,

I already made som models. For this I used Blender 3D and Fragmotion for animation and *.mdl export. It is very imprortant to know how Cafu uses the *.mdl Bones and how the animations look like. It would be better if you start with something more easy than a player model.
i found this in www:
This is no 3d model! I think it's an animation framelist.

Sincerely
