<div id="post_message_363"><font color="red"><b>UPDATED: 5 May 2008</b></font><br />Version 3.2 has been released fixing the export issues on Windows Vista. Download the XSI CryExporter v 3.2 <a href="http://webrel2.softimage.com/open/products/xsi_addons/crytek/Crytek_XSI_v3.2.zip" target="_blank">here</a>.<br /><br />-----<br /><br />Hi all,<br /><br />This is a 5 minute tutorial in getting the XSI CryExporter working.<br /><br />You'll need:<br />- XSI (commercial version or the free XSI Mod Tool). We only tested with XSI 6.02+<br />- The original Crysis disc, and the Crysis game must be installed<br />- SOFTIMAGE|Crosswalk 2.5.x Download it <a href="http://www.softimage.com/downloads/Crosswalk/crosswalk_2_5_2.aspx" target="_blank">here</a>.<br /><br /><b>About the XSI Mod Tool</b><br />This is a free version of XSI for non commercial game creation. It is basically XSI Essentials 6.02 with some limitations such as a 64k triangle export limit (per mesh, not scene), and 512x512 rendermap limit. It's free!! <br /><br /><a href="http://www.softimage.com/products/modtool/" target="_blank">>> Download the Mod Tool here <<</a><br /><br /><br /><br />
<div align="center"><b>Setting up the XSI CryExporter</b><br /></div><br /><br /><b>1. Install the Sandbox Editor. </b><br />On the Crysis game disc, go to the directory named "Sandbox2"<br />Install it by double clicking on the "CryEngine(R)2 Sandbox(TM)2.msi" file<br /><br />Once you install it, you can now run it from your Crysis\Bin32 directory. By default, this is here:<br />C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32\Editor.exe<br /><br />You can get more information and tutorials on Sandbox and Crysis modding here:<br /><a href="http://www.crymod.com/" target="_blank">http://www.crymod.com</a><br /><br /><br /><b>2. Download the XSI CryExporter v3.2 here:</b><br /><a href="http://webrel2.softimage.com/open/products/xsi_addons/crytek/Crytek_XSI_v3.2.zip" target="_blank">http://webrel2.softimage.com/open/pr...k_XSI_v3.2.zip</a><br /><br />When you unzip the file, you'll see the following directories:<br />- Crysis - Bin32 directory contains the resource compiler. Game contains the mod export folders where we'll write our files to<br />- Crytek_XSI_Database<br />- XSI_Addon<br /><br /><br /><b>3. Copy files</b><br /><br />/Crysis/ -> Copy to your Crysis install path. Default: <br />C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\<br /><br />Overwrite all. (if you don't get an "overwrite?" dialog box, you're copying to the wrong folder.<br /><br />This will copy the directories Bin32 and Game into the Crysis folder<br /><br /><b><br />4. Install the XSI Addon</b><br />- Open SOFTIMAGE|XSI or Mod Tool. <br />- In a Windows Explorer window, navigate to the /XSI_Addon directory that you just unzipped.<br />- Drag and drop "Crytek Addon.xsiaddon" into XSI<br /><br />Restart XSI. When you restart, you may see a "Crytek" menu bar at the top of XSI. If you don't (some Windows Vista users are saying that they don't and we are investigating this), you can still access the toolbar by clicking on View -> Toolbars -> Crytek Toolbar.<br /><br /><br /><br /><b>5. Set up the CryExporter paths</b><br />Click on the "Crytek" menu item -> Properties (or in the Crytek Toolbar, click on "Properties" in the Others section)<br /><br />You have to set the Bin32 path and Export path to the directories you copied over just now.<br /><br />Bin32 default path: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32<br /><br />Export default path: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Objects\XSI_Assets<br /><br /><b><br />6. You're done setting up the CryExporter.</b><br /><br />Now you can follow this Camtasia tutorial to export models into Sandbox:<br /><br /><embed name="player" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" align="middle" src="http://www.softimage.com/video_player/player.swf?autoload=false&movie=http://webrel2.softimage.com/open/video/crytek/cryexporter.flv" width="640" height="500" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" bgcolor="#000000" quality="high">
<p><a href="http://webrel2.softimage.com/open/video/crytek/cryexporter.flv">Download video - right click and save as...</a></p>
<p><font size="1">Note: For Softimage video training, we recommend viewing in full screen mode. Click the full screen icon on the bottom right of the player.</font></p><br /><br /><br />Note that there is a level for Sandbox that you can start adding objects to. By default it is here:<br /><br />C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Levels\XSI_Testobjects<br /><br /><br /><br /><b>7. Have fun and please help us by giving us feedback!</b><br />If you have any problems with the exporter, it throws out strange errors, etc, please let us know by posting in this forum. The exporter really is a production tool used by Crytek to make their latest games, and in the best interest of building a better exporter, we appreciate any feedback!<br /><br />Also, show us your mods!<br /><br />Visit the Crymod website to get more information on Sandbox and Crysis modding:<br /><a href="http://www.crymod.com/" target="_blank">http://www.crymod.com</a><br /><br /><br /><br /><b>KNOWN ERROR - "TYPE MISMATCH"</b><br />If you're getting a "type mismatch error" on export, please ensure that you are using Crosswalk 2.5.x - download it <a href="http://www.softimage.com/downloads/Crosswalk/crosswalk_2_5_2.aspx" target="_blank">here</a>.<br /><br /><br /><br />Cheers,<br /><br />Leo<br /><br /><br /><a href="http://www.softimage.com/news/newsimages/2008_02/xsi_cryengine_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.softimage.com/news/newsimages/2008_02/thmb_xsi_cryengine_1.jpg" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><a href="http://www.softimage.com/news/newsimages/2008_02/xsi_cryengine_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.softimage.com/news/newsimages/2008_02/thmb_xsi_cryengine_2.jpg" border="0" /></a></div>
