Hi Imran,

Regarding problem 1:
I assume you are trying to use the IK_GAZE event. The non responsiveness you described can have many causes.
Did you add the IK attachment to your entities in the XML file ?
Did you try using the IK_gaze function instead of the event ?

Please post an extract of your code so i can provide a more accurate answer.

Hello Johny

but i get an error
XML Parsing Error inside file 'model_scene_file_name'.
Error: File not found
At line 0, column 0

On ur directions i tried using ik gaze function and i added ik files in xml u can see picture "c" and check if i m adding correctly on correct place

if (m_keys['L'])

float target_x = 0 + (1.0f/rand());
float target_y = 0 + (1.0f/rand());
float target_z = 0 + (1.0f/rand());

GameEngine::IK_gaze( m_characterID, target_x, target_y, target_z, true, true, true, 0 );

but it give me an error as follows

>DemoApp.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__IK_gaze
1>C:\Users\Imran\Documents\WorkspaceHorde3D\Tools\GameEngine\/bin/DemoAppd.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

An error saying file not found, seems quite obvious for me. So the question is why can the file not be found. Maybe you can set a breakpoint within the code where the file should be loaded and check if the working folder is not set to the same path your file 'model_scene_file_name' is placed. Or can it be that the model_scene_file_name is only ment as a placeholder?

The linker error is caused by a missing symbol from the IK GameEngine component. I don't know the IK component, but either there is no such method exported from the DLL or you just missed to link against the component (specify dependency within visual studio might be enough).

Last but not least, I kindly ask you not to post big pictues where a textual quote can be used. Our server space is not unlimited and it is also much easier to read. And if you still think you must upload an image, please crop it to the essential content.

Hello again Volker

Great great great :D
its working now I think file name was the wrong 1 I was giving the wrong file name anyways it works super awesome
and it moves his head to one side "I dun know if is this what gaze function had to do or something else"

anyways now i got an idea that may b I shall check for proper xml file to b added but in case of blink eye context i must say I think I dun have to add
any attachment m i right it doesn't give any error but his eye doesn't blink

regards Imran Habib
