I have done this at least a thousand times... and if you`re having problems with Crashes then it is most likely 2 things:

1 There is a unassigned Vertex to a Bone.
2 There are way too many polys in a single group, best way to avoid this is to just divide into many many groups the areas of the mesh that has a very high poly count. (kinda hard, areas i have issues with are usually FACE and HAIR parts of the mesh that is very high poly, so you may want to create many groups of polys within those areas).

By the way, the engine can take very very high poly meshes with no issues... but like i mentioned before, the mesh needs to have the areas that have the highest poly count divided into many groups, i have converted Lara Croft from 2012 Tomb Raider Game, Nanosuit from Crysis and some extremely high poly meshes into Redemption.

Also note that the engine only handles a max texture resolution of 512x512. Any higher than that and the texture wont show in the game.

I see.. Seems bizarre to me, but i guess it can be possible.. Anyway, have you an idea about the maximum (approximately eh) polys that i can leave per each group?

From what I understand from Eta is you simply trial and error. Keep taking the largest groups and divide them till the game stops crashing. Hehe. I guess it's not an exact science.

Ok, i checked out and i saw that you are both right: model used to crash both for too many poly on a single group and for uncorrect texture size. By proper editing them it seems to go perfectly.
I thank thee for thy help.

By the way... I fear a model which has a wrap like jack of blades can't be rigged properly to the standard skeleton of vtmr. There is no way to rig the wrap decently without seeing it half aflutter and half still.

Any model can be rigged. You may want to talk to Eta if you need a hand because I'm not really good with rigging either. Hopefully he is not too busy. I know that rigging is an art and sometimes you have to take more time on one model more than the other.

Who? Where do i find him? However i've finished other models, and for some of them i do not need (theorically) to ask permission to upload them, since they have been ported from games to official sites. So i can upload them, if you like
