NPC/Player Animations - Help!

Hello all!

I've been searching around forever regarding this topic, but I have found absolutely nothing! I would like to know how to edit the animations for NPCs and the PLAYER. As we all know, the third person animations are ridiculous so I want to find a way to give the player the normal NPC animations for walking, running etc. If someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks a lot!

Srmtphoneusr, but there are over 1000 animations for Stalkers, and about 100 or so for walking, running, crouching, etc.
So if your up for modifying over 100 animations, I'll dig up the info and links you'll need. Or contact Smrtphoneusr.

And 3rd person isn't the way the game is meant to be played. You can't even get 3rd person without editing of user.ltx. Its just a left over relic from early builds of the game, so you can forgive crappy animations.

FPS = First Person shooter. It isn't a TPS (Third Person Shooter)

If you're getting riled up about some crappy animations, your even more of a perfectionist that I am, and I have a reputation for being a perfectionist.

Спасибо за Ваш ответ, mate. I understand it isn't a Third Person game, I'd just love to mix it up a bit and use third person, without it being quite legitimately retarded... Actually, I'm quite up for editing those animations. I've done a lot of animating for other games, but I got no idea where to start with Stalker. If you weren't being sarcastic, could you please give me those links/materials? Also, is Srmtphoneusr on these forums?
спасибо,

You can find him over in the CoP forums.
As for the animations, there are almost 1800 animations, and your looking for about a dozen, which are also used by regular Stalkers. So its looking for a needle in the Haystack.
You will need the Xray Tools converter, The CS SDK, unpacked gamedata, a model editing program (Maya, 3DS Max, Milkshape) of the correct version, the plugins for them, and knowledge of how to use said program.
As for the links for all this stuff, I don't currently know. Someone else might have these referenced somewhere, cause I sure don't.
Besides, the animations aren't that bad compared to some other more recent games.

Sorry, I forgot about him/her. I've dealt with Smrtphoneusr in the past regarding animations.

The 3rd person model for the actor is the same as the ones used for any other human NPC in the game. Which animations is used is hardcoded in the class. For sprinting it would be norm_escape_0 and norm_escape_00 in stalker_animation.omf

And davideverett is right, I'm not involved in the female stalker project.

Thanks for your reply.
So the models used are the same ones the NPCs use, yes. So it being hardcoded, I cannot change them in any way? Also, what animation viewer do you use? and one last thing, where the hell can I find the clear sky SDK!?
