This is most likely going to be a final release here unless there are bugs because there is really nothing left to do with this armor. This is an early release. I will touch up this post and add screenshots later.

Turns out, this doesn't work...

Epic. Truly epic. I have no idea how you managed to do that, but wow.

In the screenshot thread there's an image a similar-but-less-amazing glitch that happened to me. I'd help fix it if I knew what caused it.

I divided by zero and survived.
Two of Diamonds, people. This is important.

Is the mesh too awesome for Fable to handle? Or could it be because I am using keshire's maze robes mesh because I needed leg bones?
I also could have possibly double linked it in 3ds. That wouldn't affect anything would it? I also used the pelvis bone when skinweighting it. No one uses that bone. I'm not sure why.

I just reskinweighted it. I still used maze's robes but I did everything right. So it has to be the mesh, not me.

Can someone else test this out and see if they get the same results?

A lot of it could have to do with origin issues. We've discussed that at length in the past. I'll take a look, but no promises.

Worth mentioning, you would do just fine using the Hero's skeleton for bones, getting rid of any unused ones once you are finished, as opposed to using just the ones provided with existing clothing. Just a tip.

I am 99% sure that is not the problem since the armor is at absolute origin and I didn't move anything else.

Every time I try this, it doesn't work for me. I'm not sure what half of the stuff in the hero is.

Skinning error, perhaps? Not necessarily on your part - Fable has some funky custom floating points. For example, what you, me, 3DS, and Fable Explorer call 1.000000004, Fable might consider 1.000000006. Now imagine this on a very large scale. Weird things happen, particularly with graphics involving the odd vertex coordinate and more often texture coordinates, but almost always skinweights.

Willing to bet it's a hierarchy issue with that one. No shame there, it happens and it will continue to happen. But seriously, you need to learn how to use the Hero's skeleton. It makes things sooooo much easier.

That glitch is usually caused by the mesh not being at origin. It is easily fixed in 3DS Max by toggling snaps, adding a sphere at origin, converting the sphere to an editable mesh, selecting the sphere and attaching the armor, selecting by element, deleting the sphere, importing the original armor, adding UVW mapping modifier to it, dragging the UVW modifier to the new sphere armor. Simple. In other cases, it's because your mesh is weighted to geometry instead of bones. Make sure you only add bones to you skin modifiers. I would post this in tutorials but I don't have the permissions necessary to do so.
