Modeling in DB?

Modeling in DB?

Modeling in DB?

What programs / codes would i use do create models for games in dark basic?  

RE: Modeling in DB?

Free programs that work with DarkBasic:
anim8or - www.anim8or.com
JTEdit - www.jtgame.com/jtedit/
Blender - www.blender3d.org
DeleD - www.delgine.com
Wings 3D - www.wings3d.com
HamaPatch - http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Ginza/6625/soft10.html (not tested, but it can export .x)
LightRay3D - http://www.sxcreations.com/lr3d/lightray3d.php

Personally, i like anim8or and JTEdit the most... Ur choice

To load the objects in darkbasic:
type as followed:

load object "name_of_object.x",nr_of_object
load object "name_of_object.3ds",nr_of_object

DarkBasic can load 3 types of models:
- 3ds (3d studio format)
- x (directX)
- CSP (character shop's own format)

RE: Modeling in DB?

Wow, thanks a lot!  I have one more question:  I want to make a computer program and I was wondering, how could i let the "user" of my program change the locations of the verteces via mouse/keyboard?

RE: Modeling in DB?

DarkBasic cannot change/reposition verteces. BUT, it CAN reposition/rotate limbs.

use these commands for this:

(to rotate)
rotate limb object_nr,object_limb,x,y,z

(to offset)
offset limb object_nr,object_limb,x,y,z
