3D Models for SRB2... are Official?!
As of the 2.2.7 version of SRB2 models will be included with the game by default. All of the updates and such that come with official release(s) are included here- and probably will continue to be for now just for ease of access. Whenever I update here- it should be a simple process to merge with the official models. Just download and extract the v1.2 model .zip from here into your root SRB2 folder. (Where SRB2win.exe is located.) If it asks you if you'd like to overwrite existing files, you should answer yes.
Still Saturn-Inspired, but no longer Saturn-limited.
Some may be quick to point out how most of the cast has been overhauled since 2.1, and you'd be correct. While I still take heavy inspiration from official Sega Saturn titles, I discovered how just a little bit more detail, polish, and creative liberties could get these to fit with SRB2. Following SRB2's designs and colors really make these feel like models made for this game, rather then another game's assets tossed into it. For those looking for 100% accurate Saturn nostalgia, look forward to Chripsy's Pointy Sonic, which I will also be supporting with it's own model down the road.
Please don't ignore this, this is important and I will ignore you and your issues you have for not using these recommended settings.
I only support the interpolation settings of "SOMETIMES" or "NEVER" expect visual errors if using "ALWAYS." I also optimize these models for the Model Lighting "OFF" option, as I dislike the ambient 'lighting' SRB2 applies.
NEW FOLDER STRUCTURE
Now that models are included with SRB2 as of 2.2.7 I've made the decision to separate out all models that are for MODs. So any model that is not for a Vanilla asset is going to be found within their respective folders inside the VDLC folder. So the path to Mighty's model would be "SBR2 V2.2.7/Models/VDLC/PLAY/MIGHTY.md3".
I apologize if this messes with anyone who likes to move things around- but with the sheer amount of files I'm dealing with - I need to keep them separated for my own sanity. Please understand I do this so I can have an easier time myself making new content for you.
How to I use these?
-Make sure your game is in OpenGL Mode, now in 2.2.1 you can swap renders in Video Settings.
-Go into video settings>"OPENGL OPTIONS", and Change Models to "ON."
I plan to finish porting/updating characters as they are released in the Message Boards. I promise I have more characters just waiting on the sidelines waiting to be released, out of respect I continue to wait on their Mod Creators to finish and release up before I can. For Mods, Sugoi 1-3 are given, and any other notable mods that come out.
These are not my fault, and it's no use complaining in this thread about them.
-NiGHTs mode rotations on custom characters; NiGHTs requires a separate lump in characters wads for models to rotate correctly. Character creators, see the vanilla cast's files and check for "SPRTINFO." Add one to your character if you want it's model to not look like an Arwing.
-Fang; due to naming conflicts, if you switch renderers to OGL after launching in software, the playable Fang will use his sprites rather than the model. Your game must launch in OGL to use Fang's Model
Any code that squashes/stretches characters does not current work on models.
