  • Bug with Medusa's Model Head Snakes

    I have been getting a bug with Medusa's Model, specifically her head piece. I have loaded about 7 other models and none of them have any problems with their premade animations. I have tried deleting the animation set and model, and reloading her again, loading her model on a new movie clip, etc. And nothing seems to work, in every animation i load her head snakes are pushed stiff back, even if in the animation preview they move around properly. I tried loading each 1 by 1 and none help.

    Other models i have loaded into my project work properly, from running, to idle, to death animations. Here is a picture of how her head snakes look all the time.

    The way im loading her model is:

    1.Clicking into the + button.
    2.Create animation set for new model
    3.Type medusa on the filter bar.
    4.Then load up: medusa, medusa_arms, medusa_arrow, medusa_bow, medusa_tail, medusa_torso, medusa_veil.
    5.Then i parent the main medusa piece with each of the other parts and load the animation into medusa.vmdl.

    It seems to work for every other hero i have tried, but i cant get it to work with her. There might be something im doing wrong that i cant see. If anyone can help me on this ill appreciate it. I also cant seem to click on any joints there to animate the snakes manually. I would be at least satisfied if i could get the snakes to a more natural position.

    Here is a quick workaround:
    1 right click on the anim set medusa1
    2 go to utilities and apply 'Bake Procedural Bones'
    3 apply any sequence
    4 voilĂ  it's working!

      you are a genius! thanks a lot for the answer!

      Was this something i did? or is this something that happens for some reason? i just want to know so i might avoid things like this on future projects.

        Looks like Valve accidently applied physics simulation on her snakes, shouldn't take long to get fixed if they notice your thread

          I wanted to ask you another question, im having troubles with Sven skill God Strength, i can load all the animation and most of the particles but i cant seem to get the Sven model to get the red tint or any tint at all. Is there a way to get the model to look like this:

          Instead of the normal blue color.

          If you happen to know this, i would be very grateful if you could share the answer with me!

            Sven has secondary skin which is supposed to be red. But for some strange reason it is black.


            • #7
              yeah that skin for me is just like a bugged packaged material, that is dark red.

              Is there a way around this? to change the tint to red on his blue parts? i have been trying some SFM color changing, but it isnt really working.

              I think you need the .DMX file to get this to work:

                No workarround for this as I know. You need to report it in separate thread.
