Title: A Back Up Site For Freedom Force Resources
Post by: Cyber Burn on January 06, 2014, 06:33:04 PM
Basically, I'm taking every Resource that I can find, and putting them in (.PDF) Format. I had wanted to have more done before I posted a link to the site, but Classes start up today, so I'll have less time to work on this. I tried to give credit for the Files where I could. Also, I tried to edit Spelling and Grammar and such so those with Language barriers would hopefully have an easier time understanding things. A lot of the Files didn't have the pictures that were supposed to be there, so if anyone does have complete Files, please let me know, I would happily update them.

If I made any errors when copying these Files, please let me know what needs to be fixed.

Websites go down, Forums get hacked, and Content Creators leave the Community. My main goal here is to make sure that as many people as possible have access to these Files. The more people that have these Files, the less chance there is of these Resources being lost.

This is currently about half of what I have, I'll try to at least make a small update every week, but I can't promise it. In the meantime though, hopefully what has been uploaded will be helpful to someone.

That's not cool, I'm not sure what the problem could be, I set this site up the same as I did my others.

If you guys still can't get in, let me know what files you want, PM me an E-Mail address, and I'd be glad to send the files out.

Don't think its you - I tried to sign up to some of Ink's groups that I had missed a couple of days ago and had the same problem. Just Yahoo messing up.

Just checked and looks like its still messed up.

Thanks for doing this, Cyber. It's great that there are actually backups for content just in case stuff happens.

Thanks for doing this, Cyber. It's great that there are actually backups for content just in case stuff happens.

Considering how much stuff I've lost over the years, the more things can be backed up, the better.

New stuff added to the "Files" section today:

Freedom Force FAQ's:
     - How To Cheat in FFvt3R

Keyframes:
     - Keyframes - Condensing File Size for FF1

NifSkope:
     - Creating Animated Textures in Nifskope by White Knight
     - NifSkope Tutorial for FF Interface

Skinning:
     - Skinning Tutorial by Glitch Girl for Basic Skinning
     - Skinning Tutorial for Wire Maps by Captain Spud



As always, unfortunately, some (Or most) of the related pics may be missing. If someone happens to have compete files, please let me know, I would very happily update any files that may need it.

Also, I plan on adding a new folder that will contain (init.py) files for both games. I've collected some from other members, but I'm not quite ready to add them to the site yet.

thanks for the freedom forciclopedia Cb! much appreciated!

Thank you Nait. With as much information that has been shared in the past, I just want to try to make sure that as much of that information as possible will continue to be available for both new and veteran players alike.

Being fed up with Yahoo though, I'd still like to try and figure out how to add to the FR Wiki, but so far, I haven't been able to figure it out. Like I've said many times before, I am not really tech savvy, so I'm quite a bit over my head on this.

I still have quite a few other files that I need to go through, so the current plan is to keep updating the Group as time permits.

Hex Editing:

NifSkope:

The Hex Editing File didn't want to play well when I tried to convert it to (PDF) Format, so I had to do a bit of editing to it. I think I got everything to translate correctly, but if anyone wants it, I do have the original file, and I could upload that as well.

This site will be very rarely updated for a while until life gets back to normal.

I apologize for the late reply Epi, I had tried to figure this out before, but free time is extremely limited, and computer time is even worse.

Certainly no need – at all – to apologize, even without taking into account your current RL issues. And thanks for keeping working on this.

I should specify that this is an open offer to anyone. If anyone has created notes for themselves in regards to any aspect of content creation, or even for the FF games themselves, I will gladly add them to the collection.

Ghosting Meshes:
     - Ghosting and Repeating Mesh Tutorial from FRP2
   

Taskmaster X Hero Conversion Charts:
     - FFVTTR_Marvel_and_DC_RPG_to_FF_Conversion V 1 3
     - FFVTTR_Marvel_and_DC_RPG_to_FF_Conversion V 1 4



Some new stuff added to the "Links" Section today.

Yahoo Groups Links:
     - Bobby69

In the "Yahoo Groups Links" Section, I am going to be creating Sub-Folders for our Content Creators, and in these Sub-Folders, will be Links to their Yahoo Groups. Considering the number of Yahoo Groups floating around, this will probably be a permanent work in progress. If I create a Folder for one of our content creators and someone finds that I am missing a Link to one of their Yahoo groups, please let me know, currently I will be going by the Groups that I belong to, so I am sure I will be missing something.

I don't mean to be a wet blanket, Cyber, but a lot of the work you look to be doing regarding the Yahoo groups has already been done at the Freedom Force Link Portal: http://ffportal.negative-10.com/

I know that you were wanting to have a centralized place for everyone to go, but I hate to see you take all the time to post links and sort creators for the near thousand groups out there when most of the heavy lifting has already been done. Admittedly, the Portal is a bit out of date and is missing newer Yahoo groups, such as your own, but all of the other big boys who aren't still around are there: Beyonder, Texas Jack, Bobby69, Fusion, etc., plus a whole bunch of names I don't even recognize.

I think your FF Resource group is awesome and I keep forgetting to drop by to see what's there. I just hate to see you potentially spending a month of Sundays compiling resources for something that's probably 80% to 90% done already. If you still want to include all of the Yahoo links, I guess you could still use the Portal to check out all of the groups and, hopefully, expedite the process. I also have a reasonably good size list of groups that I belong to, so if you need any  help, just let me know.

I didn't mean to rain on your parade. I think what you're doing is great and very much appreciated.

Hey Hoss, there was definitely no rain on my parade, and I appreciate the fact that you're looking out for me. The FF Portal is actual a site I continue to regularly visit, but the premise behind what I am doing is strictly to make sure that there is a back-up in case a site like the Portal goes down. Admittedly, Adding the Yahoo Links may seem a bit repetitive, but I'm hoping that it is beneficial in the long run.

For some reason I can't access files on the group

Are you getting an error message, is the site itself not loading, or is it just the files?

Well, just going off of my Wife's IPad, I can log into Yahoo and check my E-Mail, but for some reason, Yahoo Groups will not open at all. Is this what you are experiencing? Is anyone else having issues with Yahoo Groups?

Post by: spydermann93 on June 27, 2014, 04:32:42 PM
Yeah, the file button is just greyed out.

There might have been a change in the yahoo group settings (Cyber, I'd definitely check to make sure yahoo didn't change file availability for your group), but I'm not sure.

Yahoo groups have been getting crappier as the months go, and I would really hate to see all of your resources gone to waste, Cyber.

Yahoo needs to get its :wub: together.

Post by: Cyber Burn on June 27, 2014, 06:21:23 PM
Ok, I finally got into the Group ( :banghead:), it looks like the settings were changed so that only moderators could access files, links, etc.

I think I have it fixed now, could someone please check and see if they can access the files and links, and let me know what happens?

Wow, I didn't realize how long it's been since I've made an update here. While I have been grabbing bits and pieces of information as I see it, and I've also received some great stuff from some of our fellow Community Members (Hoss20, Windblown, SickAlice, Etc., Etc., Etc.), I haven't really had the time to put things in order so I can upload them.

In the meantime though, I have added to the "Links" Section, specifically, the "Yahoo Groups Links".

Links:


      Yahoo Groups Links:

               3D Master
               Atomic Robot
               BeardedInLair
               Beyonder
               Bobby69
               Champions Of Freedom
               Courtnall6
               Daglob
               Detourne_Me
               Flash_22798
               Grenadier
               Renegade
               Valandar
               Vertex
               ZerosMaster (WingZero)


If I am missing any Groups for these guys, or if the Links don't work, please let me know so I can update their Links. I'm trying to be as thorough as possible, but with the insane amount of Yahoo Groups out there, I'm pretty much guaranteed to miss something.

As I have the time, I'll continue to add what I can.

Again, if anyone has anything that they wish to add, please feel free to let me know.
Title: Re: A Back Up Site For Freedom Force Resources
Post by: Cyber Burn on July 26, 2015, 06:47:41 PM
A new sub-section has been added to the "Links" Section. There is now a sub-section titled "You Tube Links". It is definitely worth checking out, especially for those interested in taking up Skinning, or even if you're just interested in seeing how it's done.

For anyone that tried to get into one of my Yahoo Groups and wasn't able to, I apologize, the settings had previously been changed (Not by me), and I haven't been able to change them back. I've been out of State the last few weeks with almost NO Cell or Internet Service, and didn't check Yahoo at all. If you still want into the Groups, re-apply, and send me a PM to let me know, and I'll approve you. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience.

Nice find, CB. I've been kicking the tires of Unity since last Spring, and there are tons of in-depth resources available on it and on Blender on YouTube and various sites. It's also been rather easy to find e-books for almost nothing, via Humble Bundle and subscription services such as Scribd.

AutoDesk FBX - Adaptable file format for 3D animation software

https://www.autodesk.com/products/fbx/overview

This program is really useful if you want to use XPS/XNALara files for importing characters, too.
In Blender I import the .nif of the base mesh, and delete everything but the actual mesh (so I delete the rigging, selection/bounding boxes, etc) and export it as an .fbx
Then with htis convertor I export it to a static .obj (sometimes the Blender export to static .obj won't work well with xps)

Then, I can resize and position the xps character in the Posing Studio, using the static obj of the base mesh as a mold.  Export that as an OBJ, then it's really easy to import the new obj into Blender to do a bone weight copy for easy rigging.

So, since there have been a few requests asking about how I set up my File System so that I can use multiple "Characters" Folders, I went ahead and created a quick tutorial for it.

If anyone has any questions about this, feel free to ask. I'm also in the process of creating an alternate version that gives a better explanation of this system, so as soon as I get that finished, I'll post that as well.
