Hey, I'm having a bit of a problem with Topix Cloth, anyway, it can't find Python15.dll
I've got blender 2.2x(5 and 6), and Python 2.2.2
I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem, should I install an older version of Python? Or am I missing somthing?
And the bigger question, is Topix worth it. Right now I'm working on a knight, and I would like a cloth simulator for the chainmail and cloak when I animate it. I wish I could upload a picture of it now, but I've got a 28.8 connection(which sucks). Anyway, if any of you get a chance, get teh Warcraft 3 cinematic DVD, it has commentaries that are very cool. The people at Blizzard are insane, and I hope to join them someday.
I'm only 99% sure about this, but I seem to recall tha Topix only does spherical deformation - what would happen to cloth pulled over a basketball basically. That could mean that, in your case with a knight and stuff, it's not worth the trouble.
I'll confirm what Jamesk said, the Topix cloth script only does spherical deformation, and it has not been optimized, so if you use versions where there's still a memory leak in the Mesh API (like 2.23), the script sucks RAM faster than Enron sucked money.
Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans.
