UPDATE: The web server is back.

I had an hour or two, and wanted to see whether my DeleD API wrapper was any good for things other than exporters. Here's an alpha version of a "level walker." The main thing missing is collision, which I plan to add some time in the future by linking to ODE.

1) You must first install the NuXporter plug-in (so that you have the MSVCRT80.DLL runtime). http://www.mindcontrol.org/~hplus/graphics/nuxporter.html

2) Download this file and un-zip into the DeleD folder (I use DeleD Pro, it might work for regulars, too):
http://www.mindcontrol.org/~hplus/graphics/levelwalker-2007-06-17.zip

Please do not spread this link, just post a link to this forum. Please post feedback in this forum. The archive will go away when there is a newer version available. The final plug-in will likely be made open source (BSD license).

Thanks for testing! What version number of DeleD are you using? Pro or lite?

I am having some problem with the NuXporter installer too. Everything looks fine, but then the progress starts running back and I get a "The installer was interrupted before DeleD NuXPorter by Jon Watte could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again".

I seem to remember I've had similar problems with this installer before, but I can't remember what was the issue. It's probably the DirectX runtime, but it's hard to guess. I am under the impression that I have the runtime installed somewhere, but I'll need to explicitly check.

The event log only contains a GUID.

0000: 7b 34 30 36 30 46 46 37 {4060FF7
0008: 38 2d 33 37 44 37 2d 34 8-37D7-4
0010: 45 34 39 2d 38 45 39 38 E49-8E98
0018: 2d 43 30 45 45 41 38 36 -C0EEA86

Tried to install levelwalker.dll, but it doesn't show up yet. Then again, I am really exhausted so I'm probably overlooking something obvious. I did have a bit of a laugh seeing DevIL.dll: no Plugin Version property in the plugin information log. That's a silly side-effect of DeleD checking every DLL in the plugin directory, but I'm guessing it is the correct behaviour. I should just put the DLL's in some folder in the path somewhere.

Edit: Couldn't resist the urge to try and debug the not-showing-up of levelwalker.dll. The result of LoadLibrary is 0, and GetLastError yields a 14001: 'This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem'. I'm guessing it's a dependency thing. Probably should have properly installed the NuXporter first. I'll try that tomorrow night, now I'm definitely off to bed... Very Happy

DevIL.dll, ilu.dll and ilut.dll should go in the DeleD folder, not the plugins folder. The folder structure is set-up to unzip into your DeleD folder:

Code:

What extractor did you do to make it go in the plugins folder?

Btw, I put up a separate archive for the runtime support, if you can't get NuX to install.

http://www.mindcontrol.org/~hplus/graphics/vcredist_x86/vcredist_x86.exe

Now, don't use this link for getting vcredist for reasons other than using levelwalker -- this is on my home DSL link, which only has 400 kbps upstream or so.

So, full instructions:

1) download and install vcredist
2) download the levelwalker.zip file
3) unzip the levelwalker.zip file into you DeleD folder (not the plug-ins folder)

Building one-step installer (like for NuX) is supposed to make installation easy, but seems to have problems all of its own...

If you can't click OK, then you're using an old version. That occasional bug was fixed a while back. Try getting the latest version from http://code.google.com/p/nuxporter/ and installing that.

What OS? XP or Vista?

What installer? The latest from http://code.google.com/p/nuxporter right now?

Have you already installed the visual studio runtime? (vsredist_x86.exe)

NuXporter installed perfectly and works, though I noticed that the default scale given from the get-go is invalid (100/0). Even imported the file I exported back to DeleD, and gamespace light (for kicks).

Btw, I also downloaded DirectX Runtime, and the above exporter from your first link. Downloaded the plugin via the google project page.

I also followed your directions for the plugin exactly, by unzipping the archive in the root DeleD PRO folder. Everything is where it should be, but DeleD PRO isn't picking up the plug-in.

I got this in my plug-in log file, upon loading up DeleD:

9/18/2007 11:49:01 PM: d3dx9_34.dll: no Plugin Version property.

Running on DeleD Pro 1.71
OS: Windows XP
