[Tutorial] Using Extended Sample Character Template

Recommended Posts

NickBlu    0

Can this guide at all be used to create a DST character? I followed along and did all that she did, with also changing some of the files only with the DST template, and it seemed to be working, but when I tried to test it in game, it always crashes. I don't know if you account is still active, but some help would be greatly appreciated :) thank you!

This is a perfect way for telling everybody how to do this quite simply, yet I have a problem. I've been creating a character for DST and after doing some testing I realized that, unfortunately, after selecting your character, the screen just goes black (although, it seems not to crash) after waiting a minute or two still nothing happened, so I'm looking for answers.

the scml or what ever file doesnt have any animations . its just got a character built and show in 3 angles . i have used spriter in the past to make something just to see how it is . without animations i am not sure if the standard dont starve will understand what to do

 

the funny thing is even for together its not any better than using a klei made character and using the build re-namer after redrawing it . if it had all animations with the proper names attached to them it would be something . then you could fix little things here and there with a real reference as to the characters position not doing a blind arm swap ect

@NoOne,

 

I'm not sure what you're saying here, but the character templates effectively act like "swap everything"s for both DS and DST (the difference being that the swapped in symbols become the default rather than overrides.)

 

 

@FreakinSweet,

@corrosive i am saying that without animations in the scml it wont compile into a file that will be usable . maybe way back when it was first uploaded it had animations in the scml but not any more . anything i have made with spriter that works and isnt a static image needs animation groups and when called on by the game they need to be present . a player character has alot of them . more than actions since many actions are separated into 3 parts or so animation wise

 

in short its a junk file and this whole thread should be removed and the file dropped from the server. the "tutorial" is useless since what was shown and what you get from the file are not enough to make a character that works

Well that's not true at all, I made a character using the tutorial that works just fine. I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to accomplish but I can say that calling something useless and junk when you clearly don't understand isn't very constructive to the creative process.

Edit:  I should also mention that you need to use the mention tag for those @ things to notify people.  You can do that by selecting some text in their post and clicking mention.

You are making demands based on an apparent misunderstanding about how the animation system works.  For the past several weeks, I have been messing with the klei binary formats, so trust me, I know what I'm talking about.  I also created a Lua script that can read the raw binary data from anim.bin and build.bin files and parse it into Lua tables, if you want to take a peek into them.

 

In any case, if you are making something that's not a playable character, you need animations for it.  If you are making a playable character, those animations are provided by the anim.bin files located in the various player_*.zip files in the /data/anim/ and /data/DLC0001/anim/ directories. 

 

When compiling, the scml.exe program takes your spriter project and generates both anim.bin and build.bin files.  Another program then creates a texture file (atlas-#.tex) consisting of all the images used by symbols in your animations.  The build.bin file contains information about how to get the symbols out of that texture file.  Unlike images, symbols are not necessarily square.  They are (potentially) complex polygons.  That's how the game knows what the clickable region of an entity is.  Symbols are also not necessarily a single image.  Some symbols have many images.  These are each separate 'symbol frames'-- the face symbol is probably the best example of this, because each face is the same symbol but a different frame.  Each folder in your Spriter project's root directory is considered by the compiler to be a symbol, and each image within that folder is a symbol frame.  The game's animations contain keyframes which in turn contain a list of elements used in the frame, as well as the name of the symbol that that each element represents.

 

When creating a player character, the only thing that the game needs is the build.bin and atlas files for your character.  You can even delete the anim.bin from your .zip without consequence if you want to save a tiny bit of space.  As long as you specify that build for your player character, you are good to go, since the symbol names in the character template correspond to those used by the player animations.

 

 

Last thing:

 

 

if it had all animations with the proper names attached to them it would be something . then you could fix little things here and there with a real reference as to the characters position not doing a blind arm swap ect

 

This is impossible due to technological limitations inherent to Spriter.  Spriter only supports very basic transformations(scale, rotation, position).  Klei's artists use Flash to create the animations, and the klei format supports the same manner of transform that Flash does, which is called a 2d matrix transform.  This type of transform allows for distortions that aren't possible in Spriter, like skew.  Imagine  holding a dish with a big gelatin mold cube on it.  If you shook the plate back and forth, the top of the mold would move while the bottom would stay affixed to the plate.  That is essentially what skew is, and it cannot be represented in Spriter.  Attempting to convert from the 2d matrix transform to the Spriter type results in strange, distorted animations whenever the transform can't be represented.

 you made a tex and build file . you didnt make a whole character. you used the existing animation file in the zip it came with

 

. a animation file is far more helpful than a lone build file . also the method for making a character the way the build file is set up is bad and results in 2 tex files being in the final result . slopy and redrawing a character is just better

 

so the method in this thread is

 

1) not going to add anything to making a new character animation wise

2) going to actually be less efficient than the original method

3) waste time unless you wanted to make a furry since you could just use a image editing program to redraw stuff and never need spriter

 

if you will excuse me i am going to finish my version of link that has diagonal walking animations by swapping zips referenced with custom animations and a little code snipet injected into the locomotor ...later losers

That doesn't make any sense.

 

2) going to actually be less efficient than the original method

 

That depends on how you work and what you want to accomplish.

 

3) waste time unless you wanted to make a furry since you could just use a image editing program to redraw stuff and never need spriter

 

This is the same point as #2

 

if you will excuse me i am going to finish my version of link that has diagonal walking animations by swapping zips referenced with custom animations and a little code snipet injected into the locomotor ...later losers

 

Have fun trying to make that look as good as Klei's animations without knowing how animations work.

So I did everything the video told me to and it crashed on startup, I tried a bunch of things to fix it but nothing worked, I then got a fresh new Extended Character mod download and I put in my textures for the character and it crashed, I took them out and it worked again.
any ideas on how to fix this?

Im trying to create a mod for DST,  I enable the mod and then it flickers the reason why it crashed and then disabled the mod. I can't show a picture why it crashed because it flickers.

@SuperPotatoBros,

 

Yes, though I just realized that you're asking about DST on the DS forum <.<

 

In any case, this is the error:

 

[00:00:16]: [string "scripts/util.lua"]:384: Could not find an asset matching anim/ghost_Bunnylord_build.zip in any of the

 

You should redo your mod with all filenames using lower case only. In addition, your prefab name should be lower case if it's not already.  For the most part, anything you create that's not a string that's displayed on screen in game should be lowercase, for safety.

For some reason my auto compiler won't work, like i.e whenever i try to open it, a black window pops up and then it automatically closes

 

and won't open! I tried every compiling technique and nothing works... I did everything right but then when it comes to compiling it just doesn't work!   And I even tried the command prompt compile technique but when I drag the paths it just stays there with out doing anything..Did the auto compiler break or something? Is it suppose to compile by itself when i use Command prompt or is there a certain button i have to press?

 

 

Please reply I really need to know how to compile the mod

 

I tried on other computers too but it didnt work either

 

sorry 4 bothering, it's just really frustrating ;-; :frown-new:

I wanted to look if anyone else had that problem and if theres already a solution but as I saw that it's 16 pages I got too lazy to be honest

anyways so I'd like to ask for help here instead

I did everything as in the tutorial and did all the art, but when I start the mod this massage comes

I checked first file it says it's missing (the anim thing) which should actually have been autocompiled? But it wasn't.

So, as said in the tutorial, I deleted the .zip file in the export folder and now it doesn't autocompile either of the files

does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Is it just me, or are Extended Sample Characters way smaller than the vanilla ones? Like, if Wilson stands next to a grass tuft, his hair will come up to the top of the grass tuft. But if you stand an Extended Sample Character next to a grass tuft, they'll be slightly shorter. In order to keep it from looking weird, I had to set the scale of my character to about 6/5.

So, is there something wrong with the Sample Character? If so, is Dleowolf aware of this?

I have a similiar problem as Sokieur

it didn't recreate any of the files I was supposed to delete, when I just didn't do anything it gave me a crashlog as I also showed in an reply on the page before

once I added the anim file from the template my skin was just transparent

If you are having trouble compiling everything in your "exported" folder, then try manually activating the autocompiler. Head to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Don't Starve Mod Tools\mod_tools" and double click on the autocompiler. You probably shouldn't be deleting your old .zip files, either. I just compiled my character into DST for the first time and I didn't have to delete anything.

On another note, is anyone familiar with what face-32.png is used for in the DST version of this template? I tried all of my emotes and the yawning animation but I never saw face-32.png.

can you plz upload the scml.exe (with dlls or whatever it comes with) , I couldn't have the Mod Tools on steam (internet connection issues -_-) and the one I downloaded from https://github.com/kleientertainment/ds_mod_tools contained no scml.exe or autocompiler.exe .. anyway if you manage to upload it or to show how to use the github version I'd be so grateful.
