Faceposer Scene Creation Help (+Crash)

Faceposer Scene Creation Help (+Crash)

Postby Orinji Neko » Fri Apr 26, 2019 10:26 am

Hello!

After having posted 2 other threads, I've realised that this community is in fact amazing with replies!! :thumbup:

By the title, you probably understood this new issue I have encountered...
I've recently (as in 1 hour of writing this post) started exploring the world of scenes, choreographies etc for the Source Engine. My objective is still based around my Portal 2 mod, and I wanted to create choreographies (to use in the logic_choreographed_scene) for my cores (eg: intro_ride01.vcd) using the Faceposer tool.
Everything works fine, until I import my audio. It imports fine, but the start of the audio file is put before 0:00, so I naturally drag it to start after 0:00, and then I am presented with the error pop-up message:
Code: Select all
V_AppendSlash: ran out of space on
c:\program files (x86)steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\update\;
c:\program files (x86)steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\portal2_dlc3\;
c:\program files (x86)steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\portal2_dlc2\;
c:\program files (x86)steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\por.

Clicking on "OK" proceeds to close the application window.

Details:
-I have a model and scene file opened
-The scene file has two channels created; speech and actions (the .wav is opened in the speech channel)
-The .wav file is 16bit 44kHz (according to the Developer Community, it should be 4bit or 16bit
-My mod is in the sourcemods file folder, but, to use hammer etc, I put the .vpk inside the portal2_dlc3 file folder. Should this be done another way?
-Here is the app opened just before it crashes: https://ibb.co/K5RpCBk


In all honesty, if someone could help me with how to make a sequence, step-by-step, with the audio, animations, closed captions the scripts and all the way to having it work in-game, that would be the best thing ever!!

Thanks!

PS: I can provide any required files

This isn't really something I know about, but I'll try and prod the people that might know.

That's a silly bug, but by the looks of it you'll want to move/symlink the game to like C:/steam/, so the combination of those folder names don't exceed 255 characters.

Alternatively, VCD files are merely text, so you could do it without the editor (though painful if needing gestures).

So! Basically after some amount of figuring out, I finally understood what you meant xD Silly me
My mod IS in the steam directory (under sourcemods)
However I use the Portal 2 authoring tools, with uses a patched version of Portal 2 (portal2_dlc3)
The game in the Steam Library does use the assets from the mod file in sourcemods, and not portal2_dlc3

Nah.. sadly not. The recording date for the voice lines is approaching very quickly and it's very stressful because nothing can really be done well without scenes
I've just been doing some SFM cinematic renders because I recently taught myself, so that's been amusing xD

But thanks for asking!

Hello,

I have tried to do a symlink without success.
The Faceposer is always searching at the default path, and exceed 255 characters.

This tool is now unusable for somes of us, maybe need to redownload the whole game into "C:/steam" maybe...

For me, everything is downloaded by default settings (C drive, and the correct folders. My mod is in sourcemods, and I use the Portal 2 Authoring Tools, which successfully use the Portal 2 assets from steamapps to function!)

I am desperate as we are recording every voice line for 4 cores next week! These are very stressful times xD)

If someone out there has the answer, or wants to get in contact with me through discord or some other form of communication, please tell me! I would really appreciate it!

Ok I'll try putting Steam directly on the C drive. Let's see how that goes xD

Question, I don't want to sound as rude because.. well.. that's bad xD

But did you ask those other people..? Because as of right now, you have helped me a lot!

Fun fact! I just counted the character count, and turns out it DOES exceed 256! (259)
Next month or so I'm going to do a full hard drive wipe, so I'll take that opportunity to install steam DIRECTLY in the C drive (not through program files x86)

Thanks
