Character Controller can be created only from Phys Capsule
Hi,

Im trying to add one of my creatures to the esenthel engine. I imported collada files to the mesh editor and saved the 5 files (mesh, skel, anim, mtrl, phys) and tried to place it in the editor.

I can see it in the editor however when i choose "update visible and play" i get the "Character Controller can be created only from Phys Capsule" error. Ive tried a ton of settings, base files etc and always the same error

Is the phys object a capsule? You cant use other forms of phys objects for characters wink

There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

if you have this error than at least one object of OBJ_CHR or which is based on Game::Chr uses "physical body" which is not made of 1 and 1 only capsule

you can use everything you have, just make sure to create physical bodies as Capsules for your characters.
Launch Mesh Editor, and create physical body Capsule for your characters.

U need the basic skeleton what the EE::controller uses. If u want to use a custom skeleton u need to code your own controller or just add the Body,BodyU and Head bones to the skeleton wink

currently "head" and "body" bones are required to be in the skeleton
but I can remove this requirement for the next SDK
