Hello everyone. We will be having our weekly scriptor meeting Tuesday January 22nd at 6 PM Caligari Time. Here's all the info you'll need to get setup. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please bring your script projects which you need help with, your script questions, etc.


The Birds of a Feather page shows the Caligari Time:


http://www.caligari.com/birdsofafeather.asp


This is essentially free training folks. If you want to learn how to script your own behaviours for your 3D objects and worlds, or create your own meshes, etc., this is the place to be.


Hope to see you there!


Directions:


Directions for those WITH an existing truePlace password:


Option 1:


Go to the following web page and look for the "Scripting Live!" links for either truePlay or trueSpace then click the one you wish to use.


http://www.caligari.com/birdsofafeather.asp


Option 2:


Download the scripted objects which Mark created (in the following forum posts) and click them to be taken there.


For trueSpace 7.51, 7.5, and the TS Demo:


Mark created a new object for trueSpace7.5x users who are either unfamiliar with setting the Network Server and Portal Settings (the Demo users for instance).


Load this object into Workspace or any scene and then click on it. It will automatically (and harmlessly) reset your current Network Server and Portal Settings (which you can do yourself manually anytime if you wish) to match "The Scriptorium" where our Meetings are held, and it will bring up the standard Shared Space "Login" Dialog to connect you right to us.

For truePlay Users:


Go to the following thread and download the scripted scene there then load it in truePlay and click on the green book inside the scene.

Directions for those WITHOUT an existing truePlace password:


(1) Getting a Password and Username to enter truePlaces:


(Our Tuesday Night Meeting is held inside a truePlace Portal (#1212) and you will need both a Password and Username to enter there which is different from your Caligari Customer Password and Username. Also be sure to get your truePlace Password and Username during Caligari business hours well before the meeting begins)

(2) Instruction Page on Port Address Settings in trueSpace 7.5x:


(Note that the following instructions show you how to set the portal entry point in trueSpace to the truePlace Meetingroom (tpportal 1111) where once you arrive you will find an easel with an image on it which says "click here to enter the Scriptorium," and one you click on that image you will be instantly transported to the actual Script Developers Meeting held in tpportal 1212)

(3) truePlace "Scripting Live!" Page: (with countdown timer in PST):

(This is the Caligari Countdown Timer and Info Page for our Tuesday Meetings)


http://www.caligari.com/ScriptLive.a...ScriptLive.asp


(4) The "connect to shared space" icon in truSpace7.5x:


The "connect to shared space" icon in trueSpace7.5x looks like two Avatars facing each other (ie: sharing space).


When you are all set and ready to connect you just need to click the appropriate icon in trueSpace and then enter your truePlaces Username and Password into the Dialog Box which will then pop up, then hit the "connect" button on the Dialog Box.


See you there!

My sleeping schedule got all messed up so I don't know if I'll make it or not. If I'm awake though, I'll be there. :)

Thanks Dele. These meetings are always interesting and informative.


I don't have anything planned myself but feel free to bring your scripted projects and questions. We're a friendly bunch and love to help out!

It was an interesting meeting again with good discussion of scripting and some great ideas were worked on.
