So rather then define the animation using the mesh index number I want to use a mesh handle. The reason is the mesh index changes.
compiles fines but I get a CTD when I run it


h:
Code:
    MESHHANDLE meshhg_Vessel, meshhg_VC, meshhg_sm[1];

    UINT meshi_Vessel, meshi_sm[1];

cpp:
Code:
ORION2NEW::ORION2NEW (OBJHANDLE hObj, int fmodel)
: VESSEL2 (hObj, fmodel)


{
    mode = 0;
    
    fairing = 0;
    ofs = _V(0, 0, 0);
    string[0] = 0;

    tex_rcs = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture("exhaust_crcs");
    tex_main = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture("exhaust_crcs");

    cmMesh = oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-CM");
    meshi_sm[0] = AddMesh(meshhg_sm[1] = oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion606-SM"));
...

Code:
void ORION2NEW::DefineAnimations(void)

{
    anim_HGA = CreateAnimation(0.0);
    static UINT HGAGrp[4] = { GRP_HGA1, GRP_HGA2, GRP_HGA3, GRP_HGA4 };
    static MGROUP_ROTATE HGA(meshi_sm[0], HGAGrp, 4, _V(0, 1.948546, .2253037), _V(1, 0, 0), (float)(90 * RAD));
    AddAnimationComponent(anim_HGA, 0, 1, &HGA);

Code:
case 10:
        AddMesh(coverMesh, &ofs);
        AddMesh(meshhg_sm[1]);
    //    AddMesh(solar0Mesh, &ofs);
        AddMesh(lasMesh, &ofs);
        if (fairing) {
            AddMesh(fair1Mesh, &ofs);
            AddMesh(fair2Mesh, &ofs);
            AddMesh(fair3Mesh, &ofs);
        }
        break;

I don't know the reason of the CTD, but why do you use vessel2? you can use vesssel 3 or 4

That what the original Orion was written. Converted to vessel 3. Still CTd. Trying to run debugger get errors.

Not sure what is wrong.
it all works until I set the animation mesh number. Then CTD and debugger will not load file from orbiter

h
Code:
	MESHHANDLE meshhg_Vessel, meshhg_VC;

	UINT meshi_sm;

cpp:
Code:
ORION2NEW::ORION2NEW(OBJHANDLE hObj, int fmodel)
: VESSEL3(hObj, fmodel)
{
	mode = 0;
	
	fairing = 0;
	ofs = _V(0, 0, 0);
	string[0] = 0;

	tex_rcs = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture("exhaust_crcs");
	tex_main = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture("exhaust_crcs");

	cmMesh = oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-CM");
	//meshhg_Vessel =  oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion606-SM"));
	meshi_sm = AddMesh(meshhg_Vessel = oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion606-SM"));

So if I do this:
Code:
anim_HGA = CreateAnimation(0.0);
	static UINT HGAGrp[4] = { GRP_HGA1, GRP_HGA2, GRP_HGA3, GRP_HGA4 };
	static MGROUP_ROTATE HGA(meshi_sm, HGAGrp, 4, _V(0, 1.948546, .2253037), _V(1, 0, 0), (float)(90 * RAD));
	AddAnimationComponent(anim_HGA, 0, 1, &HGA);
a CTD and debugger issues.
but this works fine:
Code:
anim_HGA = CreateAnimation(0.0);
	static UINT HGAGrp[4] = { GRP_HGA1, GRP_HGA2, GRP_HGA3, GRP_HGA4 };
	static MGROUP_ROTATE HGA(5, HGAGrp, 4, _V(0, 1.948546, .2253037), _V(1, 0, 0), (float)(90 * RAD));
	AddAnimationComponent(anim_HGA, 0, 1, &HGA);

I'm not sure you can do
Code:
meshi_sm=AddMesh(meshhg_Vessel = oapiLoadMeshGlobal...
Instead of breaking this in two:
Code:
meshhg_Vessel = oapiLoadMeshGlobal...
meshi_sm=AddMesh (meshhg_Vessel...

Did this:
Code:
	meshhg_Vessel = oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion606-SM");
	meshi_sm = AddMesh(meshhg_Vessel);

still ctd if I replace the "5" with the meshi_sm.

So in the scenario it is in mode 0
Code:
	switch (mode) {
	case 0:
		AddMesh(coverMesh, &ofs);
		AddMesh(meshhg_Vessel);
	//	AddMesh(solar0Mesh, &ofs);
		break;

So I am trying a different approach.
I am adding all the meshes and then setting the visibility according to the mode/case.

But now no meshes are seen:(

In the load scenario it looks at the mode. which in this case is 0. Then it goes to setCofig0 which then goes to reload meshes.

Code:
ORION2NEW::ORION2NEW(OBJHANDLE hObj, int fmodel)
: VESSEL3(hObj, fmodel)
{
	mode = 0;
	
	fairing = 0;
	ofs = _V(0, 0, 0);
	string[0] = 0;

	tex_rcs = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture("exhaust_crcs");
	tex_main = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture("exhaust_crcs");


	fair1h = fair2h = fair3h = fairLh = 0L;

	SetConfig0_Ready();
	mfds_left.ngroup = 0;
	mfds_right.ngroup = 1;
	mfds_co.ngroup = 3; //
	huds.ngroup = 2;
	huds.size = 0.25;
	// add meshes then set visibility
	astroMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-astro"));// mesh0
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(astroMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	cmMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion - MPCV\\orion - CM"));// mesh1
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(cmMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	smMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion606-SM"));// mesh2
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(smMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	cockpitMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-cockpit"));// mesh3
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(cockpitMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	panelMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-panel"));// mesh4
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(panelMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	coverMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-cover"));// mesh5
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(coverMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	hatchMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-hatch"));// mesh6
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(hatchMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	drogueMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-drogue"));// mesh7
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(drogueMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	chuteMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-chute"));// mesh8
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(chuteMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	fair1MeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-fair1"));// mesh9
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(fair1MeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	fair2MeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-fair2"));// mesh10
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(fair2MeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	fair3MeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-fair3"));// mesh11
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(fair3MeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

	lasMeshMeshUINT = AddMesh(oapiLoadMeshGlobal("Orion-MPCV\\orion-las"));// mesh12
	SetMeshVisibilityMode(lasMeshMeshUINT, MESHVIS_NEVER);

Code:
void ORION2NEW::ReloadMeshes(void)
{
//	UINT meshidx;
	double dz;		// z-offset for various configs

	ClearMeshes(TRUE);

	switch (mode) {
	case 0:
	case 1:	dz = 0;	break;
	case 2:
	case 3:

I think that's the ClearMeshes call. You load all the meshes and set them as invisible, ok. But if you Clear all the Meshes then you unload all of them, so even if afterwards you try to change their visibility you don't have them anymore and you can't see anything
