Just keep in mind that the viewer for A2 is more limited in capabilities than it A1 brethen.

Does anyone have a full list of commands? I cannot find them anywhere. I am trying to find out where the hitpoints on the ships are, and cannot see them, also, I'm trying to take screenshots of them, for icons, etc., and cannot get the appropriate background. anyone have any suggestions?

This is all thats in the guide.

Code: Select all

Storm3D Viewer v1.0
===================

By Mad Doc Software

NOTE: This tool is for viewing objects only.  It is not used for asset modification or manipulation.  

Directory
=========

For proper operation.  Place the viewer in installed game directory in the same location with the game .exe.  The default installed game directory is: C:\Program Files\Activision\Star Trek Armada II.  

A more extensive FAQ for this viewer is currently being developed.  The primary keys are:

<Keypad> -    Load asset

<Keypad> +    Add asset to viewer

DEL	      Remove asset from viewer

You can rotate objects by selecting them with the mouse and rotating them by holding down the left mouse button.  

A/Z	      Zoom in/out

SPACEBAR      Destroys all objects being displayed by the viewer	
I am trying to find out where the hitpoints on the ships are, and cannot see them


You use the hp viewer for that.
also, I'm trying to take screenshots of them, for icons, etc., and cannot get the appropriate background. anyone have any suggestions?
The default background for the A2 sod viewer is black lol.
