I've been experimenting with the Blender Game Engine, and need some advice.
I want to control my character with a Kinect and the Ni-Mate add-on, and allow it to interact with other objects in game mode - stand-alone player if possible.
I have rigged a character and hooked it up to the Kinect using the Ni-Mate python script. So far so good, it works well.
Then I wanted to have my character interact with other objects, so I started doing simple game tutorials to find out how the BGE worked. That went well too.
Then I started trying to bring my character into the game environment, and hit various problems and crashes which I won't go into. I am prepared to continue struggling through this, but I need some advice as to whether this is advisable or possible. Has anyone been doing work like this, and had success?
I would appreciate some feedback!
