Default Geoset Merger Tutorial (DreadGhoul)

Head Changing tutorial.


Step 1
First of all you should get the models open a mpq in any program that can extract mdl models (Magos Model Editor). We will use the DreadLord (Units\Undead\DreadLord\Dreadlord.mdx) and the Ghoul (Units\Undead\Ghoul\Ghoul.mdx).

Step 2
Open Oinkers Vertext Modifier and open the dreadlord model (Geoset 1). Add a marker just below the head (5, 0, 100). And remove the head, that’s pretty easy since there are no vertex close to it, then save it. Now open the Ghoul model. Remove everything except the head, and then move it to the marker. Remove all the other Geosets on the ghoul. Save the ghoul.
The Ghoul should look like this: Click image for larger version

And the DreadLord like this: Click image for larger version

Step 3
Open GeosetMerger and do so it looks like this:
Base Model: HeroDreadlord
Geoset: Ghoul
Output: HeroDreadghoul (call it whatever you want)

Path: units\Undead\Ghoul\Ghoul.blp
Type: None

Bone: Mesh26: Bone_Head

And then click Merge.

Step 4
Open Magos Model Editor and take a look at it. Doesn’t it look good? Yes, until you come to the dissipate animation. You’re ghoul head are there just floating in the air.
Well don’t just sit there, now lets fix it.
Open up the Geoset Animation, and create a new. Set the geoset to the ghoulhead’s geoset. Open up the Alpha window and it should look like this:
0: 1
This is what we must change…
Open the Sequence Manager and open the Dissipate animation. Copy the From number and put it into the Alpha and do the same with the End Number. Now change it soo it looks like this:
32400: 0
35733: 0

Now look at the Dissipate animation again.

Hope it works.
