    Giving AI a script

    • Choose your AI
    • Set your nodes and volumes
    • Syntax for AI scripting
    • Openning Medit for animations
    Cutscenes help make a game interesting. They tie together the actions sequences. Can't really teach cinematic ability, thats a whole course in itself, to decide angles and shots, but making a dialogue sequence is easy enough. Making Ai do things its just a question of openning up ModelEdit and studying some animations.

    Start up a new level in dedit. Call it my first movie.

    Read the AvP2_AI_NOTES.doc file

    I'll add to this at some point in the near future.

    Time permitting.
