Gamespace demo serial number: 1157845120831

This group of 7 folders contains the entire program. It has some limitations when compared to the full version of Gamespace, but is still an excellent choice as far as free modeling software is concerned. The following serial number is required to install GSL> 1157845120831.

Download the entire group of folders, extract the contents of each folder to a single new folder so that the extracted contents of each folder are all together and run the BAT file to merge all the files back in to the GSL installer. Then you can run that file to install GSL on to your system.

PS: If you need information on how to install or use Gamespace Lite feel free to post questions and I will try to help you get started making 3D models with the software.

Caligari Gamespace Lite is a simplified version of Truespace and is an excellent primer for getting used to how Truespace 7.61 Beta 8 works on the Truespace 6 portion of the software. Use Gamespace until you feel comfortable and then when you are ready to graduate to Truespace 6.6 the transition will be much easier. Best wishes, BNG123. :mrgreen:

The software is pretty ease to use with a little hands on practice. Most modeling tasks are as easy as clicking on the pretty little icons in the modeling workspace. Some of the menu bars may not be fully visible when you first run Gamespace, but this is by design to will keep the workspace clean and uncluttered. The menu bars can be expanded by clicking on the left side of each bar. Left clicking will expand the bar to show more icons. If you want to minimize the bar left click it again and it'll change to a tiny gray square. Each click will toggle and expand the bar. The startup preferences can be saved by clicking File>Preferences and in the dialog box Xing the Save State box. This will save your user preferences each time Gamespace opens.

FYI: You must download all 7 zip files to install the demo of Gamespace in the same common folder. Then extract all of the files to another common folder and run the bat file to combine all of the files into a single exe installer again. Once this done you're ready to run the GSL installer to actually install Gamespace on your PC. The installer will request a serial number use the one provided in this post.

PS: I SEE SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT DOWNLOADING ALL OF THE 7 FILE FOLDERS. HOWEVER TO INSTALL THE DEMO YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD ALL 7 FOLDERS. THEY MUST ALL BE EXTRACTED TO THE SAME SINGLE COMMON FOLDER AS WELL. THEN ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS RUN THE .BAT FILE TO COMPILE THEM ALL BACK IN TO THE SINGLE GSL.EXE INSTALLER PROGRAM. JUST POSTED AS FYI IF YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING WHY THE INSTALLER DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU.

If you've downloaded and installed the software spend some time playing around with the modeling tools in GSL. A good place to start is to load a simple premade primitive from the icons that represent them. Left click one of the icons and then left click in the workspace to place the object then right click to exit the placement tool. If you want to edit the object you just placed, then right click the object to enter in to the edit mode. A new menu panel will pop up alowing you to modify the selected object. By default you can select individual faces, edges and vertices by left clicking items when they highlite under your mouse cursor. To select multiple items press the Ctrl key and left click addition items on the object. Each will highlite as you select them. The bounding box surrounding selected items will enable you to move, resize, and rotate selected items by left click holding and dragging them along the bounding box itself. If you look at the pop up menu many things can be done to modify the object far too many to explain in a single post, but with some experimentation you'll learn which tools fit your personal editing needs. You can also left left click and hold the corner areas of the bounding box to uniformly scale selected items on the object. PS: you can also use the bounding box outside of the editor in the same way as it is always visible when an object is selected. Just remember to left click hold the specific area of the box to do things like move, scale and resize the object. Typically, the corner and smaller area of the bounding box are for scaling and resizing. The larger inner area is for moving the object itself. The exception to this rule is noticable in the edit mode and the center area is used to rescale the select faces and other selected items on the object.

Have fun and post any questions you may encounter and I'll try to post a reply as time allows.

You'll probably also want to save your personal preferences so that the next time you run GSL it will automatically load. This can be done by clicking File>Preferences an Xing the following boxes>Save State, Auto Save, and Auto load. The first remembers what tool panels were open, the second saves the last scene you were working on and the third loads the last scene you were working on.

This group of files contains the help files for Gamespace and the Lite version. Place the help file in your Gamespace directory. Some topics are not included in the demo version of GS Lite. Use it as a learning guide. I have the full version Gamespace, but am not at liberty to release it publicly. The lite version is fully functional for low poly models up to 650 faces, but it lacks many of the model export formats with the exception of DirectX, Caligari's own native COB version 1, 4.3, 5, 6 and SCN scene format. However, a 3rd party application called 3D Exploration 1.5 can convert all of these formats to XSI as well as many other popular formats like LWO, OBJ, WRL, 3DS, etc.

For those of you who learn to use Gamespace I highly recommend downloading the free version of Caligari Truespace 7.6 or 7.61 beta 8 as functionally it's almost identical to the Truespace 6.6 included with 7.6 and 7.61. In fact it's actually far more advanced then Gamespace ever was, and it supports a number of import and export formats in the form of free installable TSX plugins; I have some of these plugins already hosted on this forum.
