thanks for your response Tanmay but it doesn't seem to be that: I have the Actuator set to "Action" In the 3 diagonal square window I have ArmatureAction selected - this was the automatic name that was created when I animated the Armature - and I have the Armature selected. I have tried selecting st...

I recently watched the Blender tutorial "Creating a simple game character" http://cgcookie.com/blender/2010/05/13/game-enginecharacter-part-1/ to see if I could find the source of my lack of progress (as chronicled above). It’s a very informative tutorial, but I am no nearer a solution. Currently I ...

umm, I checked my logic block screen and I have already done exactly what you recommend. I have a keyboard action "return key" linked "and" to "Armature Action", which is the 120 frame animation that plays fine when I hit "play" or "alt a" on the time line. When I go into game and hit "p" (armature ...

Thanks Tanmay,

is this new in 2.6?

I recently upgraded from 2.58 and I haven't found anything about this in the online manual for either version. Is there a good link where I can read up on this?

Thanks for your advice

I just ran a very simple test I started a new project. Deleted the cube. Created an armature. Started extruding single bones from the same original armature, like very primitive fingers. 1st bone - "bone" 2nd bone - "bone.001" 3rd bone - "bone.002" with 3 overtyped on "2". Same problem. I'm sure the...

hi again, so I completely rebuilt the hand. I added an armature (in object mode) at the centre near the bottom. I entered edit mode. I selected the armature and extruded to the base of the thumb (right hand, thumb on right from front), selecting "armature object data" and looking at the display with...

hi, thanks for replying. I tried both modes. With some tweaking I was able to get into play mode but the animation would not run and the mesh only appeared in the 'rest' mode. I am pretty sure there is some anomaly between the mesh and the armature, so I am currently rebuilding both from scratch as ...

can't get into game panel by pressing "P" or start

I would really appreciate some help with this. I am setting up action where a hand drops a pair of scissors. I have animated the fingers opening over 120 frames. However when I hit P to go into game play nothing happens. If I select the hand rather than the armature the hand appears in the gameplay ...
