apparently xreal uses doom3's md5mesh and md5anim for some player characters. since it's based on ioquake3 does that mean this feature could be ported to openarena?

i'm not saying it should, just wondering if it's possible.

i didn't think it would be ported to openarena, but it's nice to know it can be done.

You'll probably see bump/specular mapping and per-pixel lighting before md5 support (even though the model format is better).

i like the idea of the mesh and the animations being seperate so more animations can be added. md3 has every pose built into it, doesn't it?

would md5 support cause problems for slower computers?

If the polycount of the model were too high, yes.

md5mesh doesn't even have support for normals, so if any md5 is rendered it will be horribly, badly shaded like crap.

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

Only if the renderer doesn't change.

just implementing md5 is not a good idea and implementing the rest is a pita
if you want skeletal formats md4/mdr is already supported but they have poor support from modelling programs
and not a good format
I suggest binary version of md5 format tweaked for ioquake3
...
but a cat is fine too
erm md3
