:iconcherokee-rose: requested an MMD version of Vincent's gun from Dirge of Cerberus, and I've been enjoying making things in Metasequoia lately, so I thought...what the heck, I'll give it a try!

The end result is far from perfect, but I think it turned out all right. The texture on the gun is made from the official game art image used in the request, because I couldn't find any better images to use.

As to the video, while I was working on the gun, I suddenly had a thought of using it for a Bond movie opening credits-style video. Then I found this song and its motion data, and since "ninjin" sounds a little like "ninja" I immediately thought of Yuffie singing it to Vincent, and....the two ideas merged. :P (Video credits: Vincent model by *Littleaerith2140, Yuffie model by me, using face and hair by charuko, PL2 base originally by Purple Heart and converted by ~MMDFakewings18, !MMDMiko and :devmoresporezplease: and clothes by ~amiamy111, !MMDMiko, and ~mbarnesMMD. I forgot to favorite the list that linked me to the motion data and music, so I don't know who to credit for them... :( Sorry. Oh, and I believe the fire effect is by Beamman, as is the muzzle flash effect...which, btw, fired three times, one out of each barrel, but you can't tell between the poor timing and the fire effect behind the second two.)

The download contains three versions of the gun: the .mqo file (in case anyone wants to go back in and improve it with the more flexible tools of Metaseq), an .x file and a .pmd file with fairly choppy physics on the charm hanging from the handle of the gun. The quality on the video is pretty poor, so you might not be able to tell, but the thing keeps bobbing up and down...and that's vastly improved from the way it was initially behaving, I might point out! In addition to the physics on the charm, the .pmd version also has a bone to control the trigger, so if you want him to fire the gun, the trigger can actually move with his finger. :) (Instead of his finger going through the trigger. :P ) For the most part, though, I'd recommend using the .x version, rather than the .pmd one. The .pmd version, btw, is sized to match the Vincent model in the video, so if you want to use it with a different model, it might not match up. If you're using this Vincent model with the .x file, then the size you want is .05. (Seriously, the one Yuffie's dancing on is at size 1. I forgot to shrink it down before exporting it from Meta... :P )

Okay, so before I get to the download link, I have two rules regarding the use of this gun in MMD.

One, if you post any pictures/videos with this gun, always credit SquareEnix! The gun is their intellectual property, even if this rendition of it was largely created by me, they should still receive their due credit for the initial creation.

Two, do not use this gun for images of violence perpetrated against good guys! Especially not any of Vincent's fellow party members! I have no problem with you using this gun to have Vincent shoot Hojo in the head (though you'd have to be sure that was okay with the people who made the Vincent and Hojo models first, naturally) or to shoot Sephiroth, or villains from some other game, or whatever. But I don't want to see any images of Vincent using this weapon on his friends! If you absolutely must, you can have him fighting people from other games, so long as no one gets seriously injured. (Like how in the Avengers, when Thor arrives, he fights against Iron Man and Captain America, but they don't any of them cause any permanent injury to the others. So if you want Vincent to spar against Squall or Cecil or whoever as a manly way of saying hello, fine, just don't spill any blood.) If I see any egregious uses of this gun for violence against any of the party members from FFVII, though, I will take the download down, so please don't be a creep and ruin things for everyone else, all right? No matter how much you might personally dislike a character, there are always going to be people out there who love them, and it's painful to see fanart depicting them being hurt in any way, especially when they're being attacked by their own friends. Try and think about how other people are going to feel on seeing an image before you post it, please. (In general, not just in regards to this gun.)

Right, so with that out of the way, the download is here: [link]

Oh, and that Yuffie is also now available (slightly upgraded from this version) here: [link]

It's from an anime called macross frontier, ironically it's sang off by the girl who was gumi's voice sample. "Ninjiin Loves you yeah!" yes its a song about a carrot.

Yeah, I'm not sure what happened, but all my BowlRoll files just suddenly vanished. I'll have to re-upload everything here. I can understand how some of them might have gone bye-bye, but even the ones that were 100% original are gone, and it's not like they sent me any kind of message or anything. :(

I'll let you know when I've uploaded it to my st.ash.

I'm glad you like her! :D

I should've added a link in the description when I released her on my blog. She's available from here [link] but she'll be getting an update in a week or two (depending on my progress on the "Doctor Who" stuff I'm doing in Metasequoia) so you might want to wait. I'm going to replace the tails of her headband with ones I'm going to make in Meta, which'll have more vertices, and thus be able to move more fluidly. The Advent Children one is the one with the really noticeable changes, though, since the current version has one of those awful Blender inverted face problems, which I *finally* figured out how to fix. :D (Obviously, she, too, will get the updated headband, since it's the same one, but in her case the inverted face overshadows the headband issues.)

I finally got the Yuffie pack update ready! :D The download is at [link]

I spent a fair amount of time going through trying to fix up all the places where the skin might pop out through the clothes. :) But to me the star of the update is the new headband tails on the Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus versions. I gave them lots and lots of vertices. :D (Though at first the physics were awful and they kept bouncing up and down like yo-yos, which was actually pretty funny...)

Awesome! I've been wanting game weapons! And don't worry, I won't have it be used against any if Vinny's friends. Mostly because I've only got Vincent, Lazard and Hojo FFVII-Wise. This gun may pop up in the vid I'm working on.

It's beyond perfect! :woohoo: I'm really going to see if I can use this model when I get the chance to mess around with the MMD maker. Again, thank you so much! LOL! I love the ending too!! *feels like jumping on Vincent now.... XD*

The quality of the picture is really low, so you're not really missing much. :( (The drop in quality from .wmv to .swf is astonishing...though I think it was worse with this one than it was with either of the other two I've done this way...)

Maybe I should post the .wmv version to MediaFire or PhotoBucket or something and put a link so the less crappy version is available...

(Unfortunately, I'm locked out of YouTube, so that isn't an option...)

I don't honestly know. I think it's some kind of glitch, because when I tried to log on, I got an error message stating that I couldn't log in because the user had terminated the account. Obviously, I hadn't done so! But I thought maybe someone had hacked it and shut down the account, so I tried to open a new one. And I got an error message saying that my e-mail account was already in use for a current account.

So, according to YouTube, my account is both active and terminated at the same time. :(

Since, technically, everything on the account other than a video of noisy cicadas is in violation of the rules (they all use music I didn't write or perform, y'know?) I didn't want to try complaining/asking to have the problem fixed, 'cause I figured that if I drew attention to myself, they'd just shut down the account and mark me down as a rule-breaker.

For the most part, it's not really a problem, 'cause I didn't really like the YouTube scene anymore. It's just that in cases like this it's a little annoying.

Anyway, I went ahead and posted the video to PhotoBucket. The link's in the new blog entry I just put up, but I may as well repeat it here: [link]

The down side of the better picture quality, though, is that you can see the times when Yuffie's braces go right through her shoulders. :( The dance motion I used was very shoulder-intensive, but the PL2 body base doesn't seem to like massive shoulder movements. I had to go in and change her shoulders in almost every frame, but there are still places where I missed things. :(
