About This File

This is a Model (.emdl) file containing the Jedi Outcast skeleton made of null objects. I changed the appearance greatly to help new users better understand visually which bone should influence thier custom models. As far as I know there was no skeleton for JK2 for Softimage so I took my JA skeleton and added in the necessary bones.

 

To use this file simply just have your model open and go to File>Import>Model and choose the DaVinci_Male01_NullBones.emdl file. It's in this format because the merging option doesn't work properly in Mod Tool versions and this way you wont have to export your models in and out just to get the bones which can cause loss of certain data in your scene files such as groups and layers.

 

I recommend selecting objects and putting them in groups for further ease of use, I could not group them myself since the .emdl format doesn't support groups. Here are the preferred groups...

 

tags - containing every tag including stupidtriangle_off, set the visibility to do not show members, tags are already enveloped to the bones they need to be so don't mess with them.

 

do not envelope to these - bones that you should not weigh anything to, includes model_root, mesh_root, skeleton_root, Motion, face, lhang_tag_bone and rhang_tag_bone, set it to do not show members and do not allow selecting members

 

bones - this ones simple, all the bones that would be used for character deformation, leave group settings alone as you want to see and select these, making this group makes assigning envelopes easy since rather than selecting all the bones 1 by 1 you just select the group when you're picking deformers.

 

After your model is set up properly just branch select (middle click) model_root and export.

 

Enjoy!
