Beyond a Steel Sky
« on: July 17, 2020, 22:23 »

Game: Beyond a Steel Sky (steam page)
UE4 version: 4.24

Meshes and textures works fine with the latest umodel build (1314 at the moment). Animations doesn't work, probably due to custom format - there is error "wrong CompressedTrackOffsets size (has 0, expected xxx)" for every animation sequence which umodel is trying to load (example assets).

Yeah i get exactly the same error too, i wonder why it shows animations support on the compatibility table though, perhaps just objets animations are supported?

Checked the file. Unfortunately the provided data is not enough: there's just an AnimSequence which is nothing without Skeleton. So, it would be great to have a mesh, skeleton and animations.

@Gildor: Sorry, I didn't know which assets will be required. Updated samples in the first post.

Checked the file. It has custom animation compression system. I think it uses ACL.

Yes, I've found references to ACL UE4 plugin in resources. I guess there is no point in implementing support for it at the moment, unless some big game will use it. Thanks for the check )

Yes, exactly!

Despite BTSS is a classic game, I started my PC gaming with playing its predecessor (and I loved the game) - I wouldn't like to implement ACL unless this will really be needed.
