Simple upload of your character

General


Note: At the moment, the model import function works only on Windows 10 x64. On other operating systems there may be problems. Neet .net framework 4.5+ We will try to get rid of this problem at the time of release. Upload your character is very simple, even without modeling skills! All you need is to simply place the .fbx file in the Models folder and restart the application.




File requirements:


• Textures and materials must be in the FBX.
• The skeleton of the model must match the standard skeleton of Mixamo or Biped (3ds max e.t.c.)
Note: when exporting from the Mixamo site it is recommended to choose the format .FBX for Unity




Not able to model?


If you are unable to create a new skeleton, or you cannot model, you can create a skeleton automatically on the Mixamo website (Note: For the FUSE program, the skeleton created after “Send to Mixamo” is not currently supported!).





Mini games

You are flying ships that shoot at you. Destroy ships to get +1 point. Every time a bullet hits you, you will get +1 death. Your stats is at the top of the screen. To finish the mini-game, click on the “stop” button.
Ships and bullets appear based on current music (on PC).





FAQ

Windows 7 problems


Q: I launched the application, but instead of a transparent background, I have a solid color (white / black / dark blue) that covers all other windows.
A: You need to enable the “Aero” theme for Windows 7 (more)




Other OS


Q: What OS are supported?
A: Windows platform only: 7, 8, 8.1, 10
Q: How to run the application on other versions of Windows?
A: Minimum supported version: Windows 7, older versions are not supported due to API specifics




Using the application


Q: The arrow on the right is bothering me, how can I hide it?
A: Expand the menu and click on the “Roll menu to tray” button. To expand the menu, select the corresponding item in the tray (more)
Q: My mini-game doesn't start, what should I do?
A: To start a mini-game, at least one character is required in “Control by user” mode (more)
Q: I have turned on “Allow windows” and now I see “invisible windows” (the window itself is not visible, but the application draws its shadow / mask over the characters)
A: The application works with windows opened in OS, which are: active; not minimized; have a title. If you know what the program is, you can write about it to us so that we include it in the exceptions (for the convenience of users, this function can later be built into the application).
Q: How to hide the application icon from the taskbar?
A: For security reasons, this cannot be done.
Q: Task Manager is displayed on top of the characters, even when the “consider windows” function is turned off.
A: For security reasons, the task manager that runs “on top of everything” is not blocked by the application.
Q: How to put a character on top of the taskbar?
A: For security reasons, this cannot be done.
Q: My taskbar is in a non-standard position and / or has a non-standard size. However, the application does not see this.
A: At the moment, the position and size of the taskbar is taken from the standard settings.




Characters are not displayed over windows, they are displayed behind them.


After starting the application, do not switch windows. The app should be on top at startup.
This is done for optimization, but will be changed in future versions.




I can't load my character


See the appropriate section of the documentation for step by step how to do this.
Also, to download a character, .net framework 4.6.2 and Visual C ++ are required.
They are automatically set by the stim when you install the game. Do not cancel their installation, otherwise the model loading function may not work.




The application does not see the windows open in full screen mode


The application sees only those windows that have a header and visibility. This is done so that the application does not respond to background processes that are not reflected on the screen. However, in the future, a setting will be added that allows you to disable exceptions.




After starting the application, it closes after a second


Most likely, you are not running the Steam client (or your library does not have this application).




Multiple monitors?


Support for multiple monitors is quite complex for many reasons: the size of each of the monitors, the window (virtual desktop), and so on. Therefore, support of several monitors from one copy of the application is far in the to-do list. At the moment, you can try to immediately launch the application on the second monitor (not tested), holding Shift before launching the .exe file (does not work through Steam).

However, you should take into account that Windows does not divide windows into monitors or virtual desktops, which is why windows will be common everywhere. This means that the first monitor window can overlap characters that are on the second monitor screen.
Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to fix it (including due to the fact that one window can be located on several monitors at once).
But you can simply not include accounting windows for the characters.





Known bugs

Mini game


A character holds a blaster crookedly in a mini-game if camera perspective is turned on for him

Some characters from the Mixamo website, as well as characters created in Fuse => “Send to Mixamo” may be imported with errors. The solution may be a reassembly of the skeleton on the site Mixamo
