Got any comparison images of the high poly vs low poly?

Maybe I'm missing it, but the readme on the github page mentions an installer.  Is there one of do I need to download & compile the code?

Yes.  Should work the same way.  i'd suggest looking @ some of the other collision models for md5's just to be sure.

I never been heard about "shadow mesh". Perhaps you mean "collision model" (if viewmodel can collide with world)?
But hands material in weapons.mtr includes "noshadows" and "noselfshadow". Is this is not enough?
Thanks.

You are correct, hands/vwep's don't need a shadow mesh because they're just in the players view.  It would be the 3rd person models.  A mis-thinking on my part.

Well, with D3 it's really meant to have less poly detail & more texture detail, that might be a little bit overkill.  :)  But, make a separate shadow mesh & it might not matter much on newer systems.

bone structure is the most important part, once that's done everything else is just verts bound to the bones.
Good job.  :)

I am not sure that a decade ago you could have mp d3 on a handheld device w/ it looking like d3 (lighting and all).

Ha!   Thats awesome.  :)

I was always under the impression that the D3 engine was always a WIP engine & D3 was just the first game released under it. 

Quake 1/2 GPL engines do something similar with water that D3 does here.  it works on all existing water too, it's pretty cool.  You can also have water interact with objected too.  Makes me think D3 could have this done too.

that stock doom 3?  I remember there being an idliquid entity but it was never used in d3. 

it's in misc.cpp but everything is commented out it looks like! :)

a script or FX might be what you're looking for in the linking of things together.  Although it might be easier to use a target entity to link to all the lights & trigger that via script.

Last time I did 3rd person weapon models I followed the same bone origin as D3 did.  I noticed that if I didn't do that the weapon didn't appear properly so it was more of a "meh."  :)

I went looking and I couldn't find any light materials that used the parameter to do the sound shakes.  I'd say make up your own & try that.  Here's the D3 material command list:

My Doom 3 shortcuts also include " +set win_allowMultipleInstances 1" so I can have multiple instances of the game open at once.  It was very handy to have the editor & game open in at the same time.

I just downloaded the latest DR & there is no Z only window.  They either removed it since I last used it or have never had it in.  You can switch window view with CTRL+TAB (top, front, side).  I never used the Z only window, I grew up on 3 window setups for 3d.  :)
