Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Definitely not. I just moved a few weeks ago. Should be wrapping up unboxing and cleaning the old place, and all that mess in a week or so. The project is first on my priority list once I free up the time.

Re: What determines object order in the scene on runtime?

I believe there was a long thread in the old 3D forums that attempted to solve this mystery as well. I believe Keef chimed in. If I recall, it was mostly dependent on a mesh ID and the order in which you added meshes. But I don't recall exactly...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Just confirmed morph animations play just fine - not just the defaults, like "blink", but even a custom morph. My *amazing* hat is bending (that's my sample product I just created).

Just need to do a few tiny tweaks then the DLL can be released.

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Took longer than I expected, mostly due to lack of sleep and preparing for a house-move. But, transparency is working again. Turns out the way imvu's api handles the alpha values changed. After an easy fix, things are back to normal. I'll take a look at morph animations soonish, then should be able ...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Small progress update - the transparency issue is still an issue. I can verify the textures are coming down correctly, and the Unity Shaders that IMVU uses look good. Once I make the free time, it shouldn't take long to solve. I'll keep posting updates here for those interested in a completed/workin...

Re: New metaverse by Linden Lab, Sansar

Thanks for the heads-up. This looks very interesting! I hear that VR 3D chats are very popular in other countries so the market seems potentially large. I can't image a *ton* of people have access to VR headsets (or the beefy computers needed to run them effectively) - which makes me wonder if there...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

After doing some more experimenting, I've determined that releasing the source code would be far too "dangerous." That is, the code allows for loading any product made by any dev and getting full access to the meshes, textures, etc. It would be trivial to create a "ripper" type of app to steal asset...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

I have the updated version working about 95%. I'm able to run all of the demos that came with the package, including loading my list of friends and opening their avatars into Unity. This seems a bit odd, since some friends have their outfits set to hidden - yet this would be a way to view their prod...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

For your personal assets (part of your outfit), the API imvu provided had product a url with all of your current products (which then allows downloading those assets). I *hope*, for security's sake, that the api is locked down so you can't provide *any* user or any outfit - or worse, any product id....

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

I'll know more soon enough, but so far... it seems like the loading of assets into Unity goes through the same loading code/URLs regardless of how you authenticate. Once authenticated, a token is saved and subsequent calls to get assets (seem to) just work. I don't *think* newer products have any so...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

I'm not sure what "newer products" means? I believe it will work with any product, though I've only just started testing. I don't know how many of IMVUs properties are mapped to Unity objects, but it seems mostly complete for meshes, textures, animations, skeletons. I see the newest version supports...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

I'm indeed running into an issue with needing an OAuth app_id to get logged in. However, I think there's an easy work around for that since OAuth isn't, strictly speaking, required. I'll keep chugging away.

Thank you again, Dimitri!

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Thank you, Dimitri! I've found 3 version of the IMVUnity packages so far (using version numbers from IMVUnity.dll): 0.1.4.0 (missing Feed and a few other items) 0.1.4.0 (with Feed and a few other items) 0.3.5.0 (the version you sent - has some morph info) I have the first version working again - it ...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Thanks Dimitri!

And yes... the DLLs definitely do not work anymore. But with some tweaking... got the older versions working. But the "newest" version that IMVU released had some updates that would come in handy, such as handling morph animations.

Thanks for taking the time to look!

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

I got ahold of the IMVUnity samples. Took some work, but got an older version working again. That is, I can load my avatar into Unity and manipulate it. But I just realized I don't have the newest version. Per this thread, there's a version 0.5.2. https://forum.unity.com/threads/released-imvu-api-fo...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

Nums! Thank you for the update. Bad news is better than no news. Or maybe it's not bad news (I don't know Segallion and whether he was much loved or... not). It won't affect the project much, but good to know I can't use IMVU avatars directly from IMVU. One small feature to cross off - but maybe it ...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

That is exactly what I was looking for - thank you, Polystyrene! And you're both right - support seems to have dropped. Sadly, where they usually drop support but leave things functional (such as with particles) it seems their Unity support is just... gone. It wasn't required for the project I'm wor...

Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

IMVU had posted this: https://forum.unity3d.com/threads/released-imvu-api-for-unity.385484/ It allowed Unity developers (Unity is a separate game engine, for those that don't know) a way to interface, sorta, with IMVU. The idea, I think, was to make a game or app in Unity and use the assets from IMV...

Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

IMVU had released an API for integrating IMVU with Unity 3D. It seems that is considered "deprecated" and no longer available in the Unity asset store.

Does anyone have a saved copy of that API they can share out somewhere or send my way?

Thanks!
