Change Actor 3D model via DECORATE/ZSCRIPT

Hi, First of all. I know this is not the right place to post. I unable to post to suggestion thread.

I have code qzdoom to allow model change via DECORATE and its working. The problem is its not working as intended. Whoever want to check the code and try it can download it from here. ...

1. Drag and drop skinmodelreplacement.pk3 into gzdoom.exe
2. At your front you will see a morphing 3d model object. This have been done via custom DECORATE code
3. on your left side, you will see a shape. This shape is the same actor name. When you shoot the shape. The other shape actor will change too and its not intended to happen(will explain it later)
4. On your right side, You will see 2 space marine. These 2 space marine is the same actor name. Shoot 1 of them and their texture and model will change. The other space marine able to retain the model due to using special hackery script.

The point is, I want to make a unique 3D Model Change via DECORATE. But due my limited knowledge in c++, I unable to solve this problem. What the actually the code does its just replace the data in the Struct array table. When GZdoom launched, It will create a data table for the model. I try to inspect the data table and try to make it more flexible and accept new unique data. I failed to find a solution for this.

I hope the drdteam can inspect my code and find a proper solution for this. Hopefully Its does not need a complete overhaul for gl_models.h

Since this have fall into editing category. I have inspect the code

Code: Select all

struct FSpriteModelFrame
	int modelframes[MAX_MODELS_PER_FRAME];
	int actorTIDs[MAX_MODELS_PER_FRAME]; // actor tid
	float xscale, yscale, zscale;
	// [BB] Added zoffset, rotation parameters and flags.
	// Added xoffset, yoffset
	float xoffset, yoffset, zoffset;
	float xrotate, yrotate, zrotate;
	float rotationCenterX, rotationCenterY, rotationCenterZ;
	float rotationSpeed;
	unsigned int flags;
	const PClass * type;
	short sprite;
	short frame;
	FState * state;	// for later!
	int hashnext;
	float angleoffset;
	// added pithoffset, rolloffset.
	float pitchoffset, rolloffset; // I don't want to bother with type transformations, so I made this variables float.
I just wondering how to make the data in this struct unique by actor. The data table only unique by actor name. What reference should I look at ?
