I'm decided to share my old skeletal mesh tool, which I created at previous work (that project was abandoned).
PSK viewer

This tool was used to import ActorX files into our game engine. It's mostly useless now, but still can be used as PSK/PSA viewer.
To load mesh/animation use "File | Import Mesh" and "File | Import Animset".
Interface is similar to UE3's SkeletalMesh editor.

May be, this tool will be useful for somebody Wink

Additional note. Animations in this program may looks strange - possibly you should unmark "AnimRotationOnly" check in AnimSet properties tab.

I have fixed an ugly memory leak in SkelEdit when assigning textures to the mesh.

Yes I heard (on Russian board) about problems with Win7 64. Unfortunately I have no access to the Win7 or 64-bit system now. The program worked perfectly before. I will check this issue later.

I have updated SkelEdit. Now it should work on Windows 7.

SkelEdit now has PSKX support (for both skeletal and static mesh formats).
Also please note that it was recompiled with Visual Studio 2008 (VC9) so msvcr90.dll runtime could be required. Probably it was already installed on your PC, if not - here is a download link from the Microsoft:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)

Hi Gildor,

I find your skeletal mesh editor to be extremely useful. Going through Mass Effect 3 directories, for example; there are so many files with cryptic names that it's hard to know what one is looking at.

On my Windows 7 machine, I have skelmesh as the default editor for psk and pskx files. Unfortunately, when I open the files this way (double-click from Windows Explorer), no model is present in the viewer. I need to go to File->Import Mesh in order to see the mesh. This may because the default File->Open Mesh is looking for *.skm files (not sure).

The next time that you find yourself making changes to this program, would it be possible to change this behaviour? It certainly isn't a priority, and I know that your free-time energies are focused on UE Viewer.

Thanks again for your amazing support to this community.

I've added option to load psk or pskx file using the command line.
Usage: SkelEdit <filename.psk/pskx>

Thanks, Gildor. If I double-click on a psk file, however, it still won't open in SkelEdit (i.e. it just gives me an empty scene, so I still have to use the import option). As Mass Effect 3 has almost 2000 folders, navigating through the import dialogue is cumbersome; particularly since Bioware's naming convention is not always intuitive (i.e. what's the difference between ASHa and ASHb meshes?). Using Windows 7's search function to show only the folders/files with ash and psk, for example, and then being able to double-click on the file to quickly view it, would be a tremendous time-saver.

That said, I know that you're busy, so if it's not an easy fix, don't worry about it.

SkelEdit.exe

If I double-click on a psk file, SkelEdit opens, but with an empty scene.

You should write "path\to\SkelEdit.exe %1" there. %1 would supply psk file name to the SkelEdit.

Gildor,

[The short version]
Your change works.

[The long version]
The reason that it wasn't working yesterday is because of my Norton anti-virus and Windows 7. Norton complained that the files in the rar were unsafe (something about reputation), so I created a new directory, which I told Norton to ignore. I then associated a psk file with the new SkelEdit file and double-clicked. The problem is that Windows 7 (at least, the 64 bit version) didn't update the Registry with the new path (your reference to "path\to\SkelEdit.exe" is what prompted me to look), so I was still running the old version of the file. When I changed the registry to see the correct SkelEdit file, it worked fine.

This is an enormous time saver. Thank you very much for your help with this.
