As these are newer models, they have different structures than the TF2 models and as far as I know the only way to fix this is to decompile, make adjustments and recompile . But I would also like to know if there is quicker fix to this, so I'll subscribe to this discussion.

There is a section in the FAQs that discusses Creating Custom Rigs. However, being new to SFM and not being a Python programmer, my main focus right now is exploring the capabilities of SFM. I haven't researched scripting yet.

Here the link to Custom Rigs in the Valve Developer Community


Sorry I can't be any more help here (yet).

Hey Pte,

I was able to find a fix thanks to a user named PalmliX


this rig works on most heroes, except for some minor models like the kotl horse. So far it's really great.

Yup, PalmliX and another guy to watch for is R234. They're both into SFM pretty deep. (Me, I'm just starting.) Check out their screenshots and videos, they're first rate....

Thanks for the link...

Im sorry, I got to point out this ignorance. A rig is made for each custom model, the Rig_biped_simple is only programmed to work with the tf2 player models. you're "fix" is a new rig, it was never broken to start with(sorry to be a ♥♥♥♥ but goddam I had to point that out)

No one said the rig_biped_simple was broken... he was just looking for a FIX to work around the PROBLEM that Dota 2 character aren't SUPPORTED by the rig provided with SFM. A FIX was found for the PROBLEM. Maybe it could have been worded "I'm looking for a solution to the problem that I am receiving an error when trying to apply rig_biped_simple to Dota 2 Characters..." Solution = Fix when it comes to problems. So I'm not really sure what it is your trying to point out??
There is no ignorance here...

Ignorance is not asking a question and searching for a solution (fix) to a problem.

BTW, He can't really be Batman either... Batman is a fictional character and this is a real place; unless he cleans boot for officers in the army. Then he really can be "A" Batman...
