In the case you wish to use a preset of project workspace, instead of creating one or use the project workspace you used with MESA 1.1. ( not recommended )
You should follow the steps :
Open the maya.env , and remove the next lines :
Check if your
Maya.env contains a path that points on MESA in you older “
modname_source” with these lines :
If yes, simply remove them and do not forget that each path must to be separated by a semi colon “
When done, save the change made into the maya.env file.
Clean up your Project Workspace.
Now we will just remove mesa scripts directory “
modname_source\mesa” from your older project workspace, you used with MESA 1.1.
Simply delete this directory.
you should also delete the “workspace.mel” file at the root, this file will not being compatible with mesa 2.0.
After That you can just follow the installation documentation to install MESA 2.0.
Two Choices :
Use the “
%MESADIR%/projects/GAME_PROJECT_NAME/” Workspace presets to store your source files (*.smd /*.qc / *.TGA) .
1. You must to know, which engine branches to use from this list :
2. Open the workspace that fit with the engine branch you wish to edit. ( ex : Mod_2013_MP )
3. Copy the “
workspace.mel” and the “
source_2013_mp.bat” at the root of the directory where your Source files are stored. ( ex:
Source_2013_MP.bat with notepad or like, and then adjust the paths of the %GAME_PROJECT%, %GAME_PROJECT_SRC% and %GAME_PROJECT_NAME%
5. Put the following line into comment : (add the two colons “::” at the begin of the line)
6. Save the edits and Execute the Batch only after that MESA 2.0 installation is done.
Upgrade your older Scene made with MESA 1.1 .
When you will load you Maya Scene and the mesa Panel, you should get this error message :
To fix this, you simply have to click on “Scene upgrade” icon from the MESA shelf.
