How to bend the characters upwards or downwards
hi guys,

we're trying to implement range attacks and having some problem implementing it. the main problem is the height position difference between the target and attacker. because of this the target is missed most of the times. to overcome this we used axisroll to bend(upwards or downwards) the character angle to aim the target

PHP Code:
AxisRoll a;
        
a.axis=Vec(0,-0.5f,0);
        
Players[0].cskel.getBone("c_spline02_jj").rot=a;
        
Players[0].cskel.updateMatrix(Players[0].cskel.matrix()) // update all matrixes
            
.updateVelocities();          // update all bone velocities 

at times it works well but sometimes it shows wierd behaviour[/code] as you can see in the videos.

any suggestions to achieve bendings of the character in other ways.
thanks in advance.

RE: Range attack problems
Hi Guys, would you have any idea what went wrong with the code itself? Any help or advice would really be appreciated. We seriously stuck and no idea how to proceed further.

RE: Range attack problems
Not quite understand the question, do you mean changing Y axis (angle.y) to specified angle or code above make half of character disappear or something?

thanks for the reply and sorry the question was not clear enough. all we want to do is bend the character so it can aim the target in different heights. we used AxisRoll to bend the body bone but it doesnot behave properly.

According to wiki, AxisRoll should be use for facial, so try using Orient.

Try,
PHP Code:
Players[0].cskel.getBone("c_spline02_jj").orn.setDir(Vec(0, -0.5f0));

Hi Sam, thank you for your help! Yes while it worked outright, it didnt work on our integrated code, therefore it gave us clue as what happened. Thank you! The problem with our code is with the animation function. Just have to replace the default animation function (since we use custom animation anyway). Hopefully this solve the problem.
