How can I change character skins?

#1
Hi,

I would like to change the skin of a character in the Crynegine SDK. I tested it with a character from MakeHuman.
I imported the .fbx file with drag and drop to the Character Tool. The tool created all the files I need (.cdf, .skin, etc).
I watched some tutorials on YouTube, but I cant change the skin.

The guy in this video adds to the "skeleton_player_generic.chr" the .skin file of his mesh.
And after he replaced the "sdk_player_red.cdf" with his "spaceman.cdf" it works.

Everytime I do the same things and try to load my .cdf to an AI I get warnings and errors. For example when I switch to game the AI doesn´t move and
there is no animation. I exported the .fbx files in Blender but the problem is the same everytime.
I hope you can help me. I try to add some more informations and pictures in a couple of hours.

Did you try BCry Exporter plugin for blender? Here is a tutorial. For GameSDK player you can use SDKPlayer armature provided on BCry's website http://bcry.afcstudio.org/documents/ where you can see more documentation.
Good luck.

Hi,

I using the SDKPlayer and the BCry Exporter but it doesnt works. Furthermore I dont no exacly how I use the SDKPlayer. There is a .chr and a .cdf file in the SDKPlayer folder but
what should ich do with this files? I tried to import the .cdf file and the .chr form the folder to the Character Tool but when I
load my .skin file I get many many errors and warnings. I opened the Player_SDK_v_1_0.blend file in Blender but everytime
I try to generate a .skin file I get errors. I read documentations and watch tutorials but nothing can solve my problem.
I will make some more tests with the SDKPlayer and give you more informations (errors, warning, etc.) this everning.
