You're quite welcome. If you have any other patches lying around, please let me know!

I am doing some profiling and optimizing of the plugin in my (extremely limited) spare time for a PyPRP 1.7 release. It's always fun to watch execution times drop by many seconds from some very trivial code changes :)

Yes, I have a patch lying around.

Scope: Playing IPO animations controlled by Python
Problem: Plasma needs the *same* index for both "animationname" (the name) and "animation" (animated object); but AlcScript simply increments the index for each AlcScript entry, so name and object do not match, and playing an animation via Python does not work
Solution: Give the ability to force name and object to the same index where needed in AlcScript

This patch does allow it:

AlcScript example:

Code: Select all
                # each line starting with "-" normally counts up the index automatically
                # ...
                # Normal stuff
                  - type: (some type)          # auto-index: 8
                    value: (some value)
            
                # Animation
                  - type: animationname        # auto-index: 9
                    value: OuterCamAnim_01  # animation NAME
                    index: 10                  # 9+1 (force to 10)
                  - type: animation            # index 10
                    ref: :TransOuterCam_01   # animated OBJECT, not animation name!
                    index: 10                  # (same index as name)
                 
                # Normal stuff again
                  - type: (some type)          # auto-index 11 (counting continues)
                    value: (some value)
                  - type: (some type)          # auto-index 12
                    value: (some value)


The patch does not affect existing ages; it only comes into play when there's an index value attached to an object in AlcScript. This is already used in Relativity.
Without this patch, a Relativity export won't behave as desired; the Transporters won't work, because their animation has to be managed by Python.

Btw, cool that you do profiling to speed PyPRP up. Do you use profile of cProfile?

Any progress on a Blender age exporter for the Open Source game engine?

Can't PyPRP 2 generate files for MOUL/Dirt clients ?
Anyway, if you're up to the challenge, you can try converting them with HSPlasma.
I know you can convert a prp this way:
Code: Select all
PageConvert -tomoul yourfilename.prp
But you'll have to find out for .age, .fni and .sum files.

I'm actually a Max user, the reason I'm asking is most of the Age Creators from what I understand are Blender users and I figured if their were a way to export Ages for MOUL/Dirt as easy as you can export for the Uru CC program it would increase the number of ages available for the all MOUL/Dirt shards

I'll see about getting that patch applied to the git repository soon-ish. I'm using cProfile to profile the export process. I didn't want to slow things down by using a pure python profiler ;). The largest slowdowns that I see in a "trivial" age are related to converting RGBA images to DDS, processing meshes, and lots of silly calls to range.

No. There is a bug in Python 3.3.0 (used by blender 2.66) that prevents me from working on it.

If you find time to update PyPRP to 1.62, could you include this as well?
