    Hi guys.

    in art\critter.lst the list looks like this
    What are the numbers after the FRM name? and why somtimes there's a "1" after? I know it has something to do with FRM choice in-game. I added megamod's super mutant FRM to the list to be "maarde,21", like the other super mutants, and the game switches between hit and miss animations. if i change it to "maarde,187" it dosent display any animation while being hit, but still switches the "hit" animation.

    Not 100% sure what the first number is, but I think it has something to do with the aiming screen. Don't know where it takes the data from, though. 11 are humanoids.
    1 means the critter can run.

    Thanks.

    Do u happen to know how to switch between "being hit" animation and "evaded" animation? I tried locating the "evaded" animation in the art folder, but couldn't find it. Only found the "being hit" animation(s).

    The first number is just the number of the rows in critter list file. As in first row is 0, second row is 1, third is 2 etc.
    But if the critter doesn't have a *NA.FRM you can write a row number for a different critter, and it will take the aiming screen picture from there. hmjmpsna.fra that all human critters use is on row 11 for example.

    Thanks @Darek.
    Do u happen to know how to switch between "evade" and "hit" animations? Let's say in metzger's FRM's?

    Rewrite the animation names? What you want to do will not work this way, though.

    Wouldn't it be better to find out why the animations get switched? Or are they simply misnamed?
    According to this link the dodge frames are *AN.

    Sorry, could you clarify - which file is it exactly? And did you mean to say "index" instead of "number"?

    не знаю что он там такое страшное написал, первое число это наследование, номер/индекс строки от какого криттера будет браться анимации смертей, таких как: сжигание, "огненный танец", анимации электрической смерти (если таковых нет в текущем наборе у криттера - тут не уверен, может все же переопределяется без проверок), и картинка для интерфейса прицеливания (тут точно берется без проверки есть/нет, так как ранее у меня были трудности с добавлением своего NA.frm с наследованием).

    Бред какой-то. Ну вот вторая строка "hapowr,21,1". Она говорит "идем на 21 строку". Идем. Там написано "mamtn2,21". Ну и как это связано с анимацией сжигания и электрической смерти.

    The first line in critter.list is "reserv". that line is considered 0 not 1. So line 21 is "mamtnt,21" and not "mamtn2.21".
    I don't have the game installed at the moment so I haven't checked, but "hapowr" or power armor is big so it would make perfect sense if it shares electric- and burning death animations with supermutants. If I remember correctly, you don't actually see the original critter, just a charred body or a pile of ash in those animations. So then the same animations should work for both super mutants and power armor.

    Ok, this is a mind baffling system. Why would "mamtnt" refer to itself then? But I guess that's fallout for you. Thanks for clarifying.
    I suppose the alternative would be to simply copy the corresponding animation files to the other sets.

    Очевидно же, что ему ненужно наследование.

    Зачем?! эти анимации одинаковы для всех.
