Hi bazuka,

Can you try to compile the MayaPlugin for Windows 64bit using the latest alpha1? Does Extras\MayaPlugin\BulletMayaPlugin.sln solution work for 64bit MSVC compiler?

http://code.google.com/p/bullet/downloa ... alpha1.zip

Can you zip the 64bit BulletMayaPlugin.mll and attach it to this forum topic?
Thanks,
Erwin

Nice work, an installer is much more convenient indeed.

Currently, the documentation (index.html) and sample scenes are missing from the installer.

Can you share the installer script, so we add it to the repository?
Thanks a lot,
Erwin

sure :)

i was thinking about new structure for plugin :)
what do u thing about this:

lets install plugin in Program Files\BulletDynamica2.71
and inside i could make dir:
-dll
-docs
-examples
-plug-ins
-scripts
i will create program group\Bullet Dynamica with shortcuts for docs, examples, links for forum etc...
we can add more things (dirs) if we need it

p.s. ill will post the installer sample so u could see what i was talking about...

cheers

Actually, I would like to have 2 parts of the installation going into different folders:

1) Maya folder for dlls/plugin, icons, scipts, default to C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2008
This is important, so that Maya automatically finds the plugin, scripts and icons without having to browse to other folders.

2) Program Files\BulletDynamica2.71 for
docs, examples, uninstaller etc

Can this be done with this installer?
Thanks,
Erwin

How does this 'Maya Modules' installation work?

What is the problem of installing parts in different folders, as I suggested? I think this is what Havok and Nima plugins do.
Can you make a test for this setup too?

By the way, older versions of Maya (8.0 and earier) don't seem to work. The plugin compiles and loads into Maya, but doesn't work. So for now, better to leave that out to avoid confusion.

And can the installer automatically open the index.html file at the end of the installation?

Thanks for your work,
Erwin

"Modules" are documented under the description in Maya's MFnPlugin API documentation.

They appear to be a very simple and elegant solution to add plug-ins instead of the old way. Basically a simple one line text file goes in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Alias Shared\Modules\Maya\2008 directory indicating the path in which Maya will look for extra plug-ins, scripts and icons folders.
