Unreal Engine 3 is a complete game development framework for next-generation consoles and DirectX9-equipped PCs, providing the vast array of core technologies, content creation tools, and support infrastructure required by top game developers.
This is a PDF. This Unreal Engine 3 tutorial was written for the intermediate/advanced user. But now, more n00b proof than ever! It presumes this may be the first time you've ever created a skeletal mesh or a "mutator" (by augmenting pre-existing code). It was designed to be step-by-step, and is fully furnished with diagrams. This tutorial describes how to... 1) set up your weapon mesh in 3ds Max. 2) animate the weapon for Unreal. 3) export with ActorX. 4) import weapon textures. 5) import the weapon mesh (with materials and sockets) and animations. 6) setting up the UE3 compiler. 7) derive a main weapon and attachment class from existing UE3 weapon script. 8) make the weapon available in the Editor's Actor Classes browser. 9) make the weapon available for play. 10) bonus: setting up a level to start without a weapon (if desired).
