A funny story about using Umodel... we once lost some source media animations for the Huntress in Dungeon Defenders. (I think it was the Huntress or maybe some other NPC- it's been a while). Our SVN (which obviously backs every iteration of every file) had saved the incorrect revision and we did not have the Max or Maya animation files. All we had was a package that had one missing set of animations. In a last ditch effort, I was able to use Umodel and export the PSA and animation data and re-import into Maya. Umodel saved the day even for a professional studio.
Really cool story! Smiley
And after that the company decided to modify something in the game to break compatibility of UModel with newer builds of Dungeon Defenders Smiley

Hi
You definitely didn't read anything on this forum! I'd strongly recommend you to read "Unreal engine 4" board and to watch some tutorials.

I've got report that this game is really using 4.6 version of the engine. With 4.7 static meshes are not working.

If you want to get real support, you should at least copy-paste error messages you get. I didn't write any message looking like "you use ue4 that not support".

I've played with ARK content and decided to improve renderer a little bit. You may see results on facebook page

Is anyone having this problem with bones much larger than the model? I tried to resize them and reattach them to the model in 3ds Max, but when I load the animation using ActorX the mesh gets all distorted.



Am I doing something wrong?

I solved the skeleton size problem by resizing the mesh and editing the envelop size of bones in the skin modifier in 3ds Max. But another problem is that all the right side of the skeleton has bones with inverted X axis, if I mirror them in the X axis them they look correct, but then the animation doesn't load at all for the right side of the body.





Any clues?

I think these files are compressed. There's no code in UE4 to do that, so perhaps this is an extension to the engine. The good thing is that the game itself doesn't use this feature.
