Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. MD2 is a model format used by id Software's id Tech 2 engine and is thus used by Quake II as well as many other games, most of them using this engine, including SiN and Soldier of Fortune. The format is primarily used for animated player models although it can also be used for static models. Unlike more recent character model formats, MD2 animations are achieved via keyframes on a per-vertex level; the keyframes are stored within the model file and the engine interpolates between them to create a smooth animation. An MD2 file begins with a fixed length header followed by static model data such as texture coordinates. Dynamic data such as Vertices and normals are stored within a number of file chunks called frames which each have their own short headers.show more
