Halo’s Poser S1.7

Halo's Poser S 1.7

So, as you have probably come to expect from Christmas day, I’ve also got a Halo’s Poser update for you again this year. Another 162 poses for you to get bored of after 2 days.

  • Added and completed Halo’s Poser 23
  • Added and completed Halo’s Poser 24
  • Fun thing for this time is there’s a few staff poses and staff and magic poses included in HP23, so enjoy those.

    Once again, there’s a normal version and a Poser Hotkeys version. You only need one. If you don’t use Poser Hotkeys, install the normal version.

    Here’s the download: Download

      Hey there!
      It has been a Long time since i updated my “Halo Poser”. With this Version i’m neither able to find the “halo ring” in my inventory like i’m used to nor i find additional fields for the poses in the racemenu.
      I would be glad if someone could tell me what i’m doing wrong or if additional mods to this one are needed (my old Version of “Halo Poser” works still fine but i’m curious for the new poses).

      • Halofarm December 28, 2017 10:59 pm  Reply

        You probably installed the Poser Hotkeys version, which is not the version with the rings. Racemenu has nothing to do with me. That’s XPMSE. Groovtama will do that when and if he feels like it.

      I’m having an issue, that i may be thinking too hard about. I have the Halo Poser hotkey version installed, which works just fine. But when i install this newest mod (hotkeys) version, no new poses show up for me to test. I also installed the hotkeys version of Knox, but no new poses or options show up in Poser Hotkeys. And yes, I did run FNIS, which completed successfully, and i see the mods get included during the FNIS process.

        From the readme: “If you are using Poser Hotkeys, remember to update your pose data with the tool on the Poser Hotkeys page.”

      Yes, you were right. I didn’t check the content insinde the .rar file.

        That’s probably your issue then. WinRAR doesn’t correctly extract 7zip files. The only program you should be using for a 7zip is 7zip.

      no, I have error 9, I tried all the possibilities for hours, I give up and play without the mod unfortunately for me

      Are you absolutely sure it’s not just that you still have too many poses? Error 9 is almost always the error you get when you have too many animations installed.

      Hi. I want to ask. Does that version works with SSE?
      If it doesn’t, is it coming in future? Sorry for bad English.

        No, but there’s usually a port made by someone. Check tumblr or LL.

        Hi, I’ve seen the S1.6 port on ll and on the first look it seems a straight forward port (i.e. only using tools to convert animations and nif files). You could check the textures by comparing both archives.
        One question from my side: There was a report that some textures (cubemaps) are missing for the beach poses apparently in the original already.

        • Halofarm February 18, 2018 11:03 pm  Reply

          They might be. I don’t know. I’ll have to check.

        • Halofarm February 18, 2018 11:28 pm  Reply

          If they’re missing in 1.6, I don’t think they’re missing in 1.7. Perhaps once it’s updated, things will be fine again,

      Hello,

      So, I’m trying desperately to make this work and I’m having zero luck. I use MO for all my mods (including XPMSE), but I did install this one manually, as per the instructions in Extra Readmes. GenerateFNIS sees it, I first tried executing through MO and it saw the animations, but I got the TPose so I regenerated manually and got the 4000+ animations added into data. The rings even appear. But every time I use a select and then play pair, I get the same t pose. I’m still running everything except the poser through MO. Is there something I’m missing? Do I need to manually copy the skeleton into data or something?

      • Halofarm January 11, 2018 7:50 am  Reply

        I’m not certain, since I don’t use MO, but perhaps you could try doing the animation stuff in the root game folder instead of in MO? Perhaps because you’re doing 1 part manually and the other part through MO, it’s having an issue?

        • Walter January 11, 2018 10:38 am  Reply

          I gave it a shot, putting all the animations in manually rather than through MO, and the rings still show up. Everything seems perfectly fine. And then I select a pose, throw on the player ring, and bam, back to that irritating half T. For what its worth, GomaPero’s poses didn’t work either, and trying it through Poser Hotkeys has the same problem. FNIS detects and registers them, and the game is implementing them on some level, its just…not posing. At all. I know that its not supposed to conflict with anything, and I only have Viktoria’s High Heeled Walk and Pretty Combat Animations installed besides HPS/GomaPero in terms of animation mods. I’m completely stumped.

          • Halofarm January 11, 2018 12:47 pm  Reply

            Hm. Okay, in this version, I reorganised the layout. Are you by any chance using XPMSE.esp? I know that comes with references to my poses. If you are, try putting the halo’s poser esp below the XPMSE one. That said, if you’re using poser hotkeys… XPMSE wouldn’t affect that, so I’m back to confused. You’re absolutely certain you included all the behaviors and animations? That’s honestly the only thing I can think of. That maybe something’s gone into the wrong folder somewhere.

            • Walter January 11, 2018 1:11 pm 

              I am indeed using XPMSE, as well as FNIS 7.0. All the troubleshooting and tutorials I could find were for earlier versions of FNIS and Halo’s Poser S. What’s really driving me nuts is that the last time I had Skyrim installed, I remember getting this to work properly. I am sure that I’ve got all of the animations and behaviors in their proper place. As I said, FNIS is generating 4369 animations with 1.7 installed, and only 164 without, throwing 441 consistency errors for the empty pose slots. Just tried moving Halo’s Poser below XPMSE, as well as moving it to dead last in the load order. No luck so far.

              If the layout was reorganized, should I perhaps go back to an earlier version of the mod?

          • Halofarm January 11, 2018 3:41 pm  Reply

            I really don’t know. I don’t have any older versions available for download here. This might seem like a weird question, but are you loading the new version into the same save as the old version? I’ve heard (and even experienced) that on rare occasions, the locations of the animation files can get baked into the save. I’m probably wrong, but if you haven’t, maybe try it on a new game and see what happens. If that works, you should be able to make a clean save by outright uninstalling the poser, making a save without it active, and then reinstalling. I hope this is the problem, but I doubt it.

            • Walter January 11, 2018 11:28 pm 

              IT WORKS!

              Okay, so after a lot of consideration and a night of paging manually through every conflict and overwrite in my mod order, I found the dumbest thing. As it turns out, if you have Live Another Life too far down your order, it can overwrite the files put out by FNIS, causing the defaultskeleton.hkx to go completely tits-up with custom animations. In flagrant defiance of all directions, I pulled everything related to HPS and reinstalled using a manual install from Mod Organizer, then ran FNIS, and put its output to the *very* bottom of the list, just above the bashed patches and DSR. Presto, instant posing.

              Thanks for all your help and your time. It wouldn’t have occurred to me to check the skeletons if you hadn’t mentioned the possibility of files being in the wrong places.

      Halo, I have 2 questions.

      1) Reference images
      Your poses are amazing, but there are just so many of them! Do you have a compilation of reference images to pose names? I know there are a couple of people out there who have reference sheets for image to pose name, but they’re pretty outdated.

      2) Pose definition name
      I like using the sae command instead of fnis rings to activate poses because it has a lot less room for script-based problems to occur. I don’t quite understand which animations go into which pose rings, what is your convention for assigning poses to their relevant pose rings?

      • Halofarm January 21, 2018 9:07 pm  Reply

        1: Read the readme. I have a link in there to a reference image site.
        2: To be honest, if you’re worried about that, I’d recommend poser hotkeys. Nothing ever goes wrong with that so long as you install it right. Also I don’t really know what you’re asking. There is no particular convention aside from H20PXX type stuff. I just use a name and number then assign.

        • Noctem January 31, 2018 1:09 pm  Reply

          I don’t understand how poser hotkeys would help with anything? It sounds even more tedious than FNIS rings, since you actually have to check the pose and then assign them to a limited number of favorite slots.

          But say I do use it, is it usable with the normal edition of Halo’s Poser? The only difference between Halo’s Poser.esp and HPobjects,esp is that one contains the FNIS rings and the other doesn’t, right?

          • Halofarm February 1, 2018 7:29 am  Reply

            Unless you’re shooting literally 1 shot with literally 1 pose in mind, it’s a very helpful mod. Many people use it because you can control your posing with a few simple hotkeys and little to no individual selection process.

            The point is that HObjects.esp has no rings, so the scripts don’t run, the rings don’t clutter up your inventory, and there’s no thousands of FormIDs weighing down your game. However, with that version, being as there’s no FormID to call an animation, the method you use wouldn’t work.

      • Halofarm February 5, 2018 3:35 pm  Reply

        Not really. I don’t even really make these kinds of poses often.

      “However, with that version, being as there’s no FormID to call an animation, the method you use wouldn’t work.”

      Wait, I don’t get what you mean. The poser hotkeys edition defines animations (just like the mainfile), for example: b -h,md H1MP1 H1MP01.hkx within FNIS_HalosPoser2_List.txt/

      Are you telling me that “sae H1MP1″ in the console won’t play the animation, simply because it hasn’t been registered in the CK as a formid? Because as far as I know you don’t need to register animations in the CK as formids for them to work using sae.

      • Halofarm February 8, 2018 6:15 pm  Reply

        I don’t know. I don’t use the command you’re talking about. I never have. I had assumed you’d need formIDs to be able to call on them in-game, since that’s what you require for proper intergration.

        You could just try it and see.

        • Noctem February 9, 2018 9:43 am  Reply

          I don’t understand what you mean by proper integration. Executing animations without formids doesn’t destabilize the game in any way from my experience. Or are you talking about user experience?

          • Halofarm February 9, 2018 11:20 am  Reply

            In-game, if you want to call on an animation via the usual scripted methods we use for posers, the CK has to have a formID to be able to read. The sae command calls animation events directly. Perhaps “standard poser integration” might have been a better phrase. Like I said, I don’t use the command, so I don’t know much about how it works.

            You seem to know more about it than I do, so I don’t think I can really be of much help to you.

        You don’t have to generate anything involving my list files. You only run FNIS for users. The List files are only there for FNIS for modders. FNIS for users only makes use of the packaged hkx files to compile its list.

        I’ve never had any other reports like this one, so I’m pretty sure it shouldn’t be an issue.

      Good morning Halo,

      I read in one of your posts that you’re not interested in designing single/limited number of poses, but rather a series/groups having a specific subject. If this is still valid and you’re still active in creating new poses then I would like to make you this proposal, which I warmly hope you may accept.

      I made for Skyrim a companion mod having illustrated books were women are having sex and I extensively used many of your poses. I had a lot of difficulties in trying to set a realistic sequence of events such as approaching, preliminaries, making love at different levels of excitement, climax and post sex. I know there already are many poses oriented/could be used for sexual situations however many others are missing and could be added to improve/complete current set.

      I already gathered many sample pictures divided in categories, I could show you, illustrating the number of sets and the particular details.

      The total number would require more that one set of 81 pictures as you’re using now. I would say that you might even create an whole new group of sets similar to Pin Up, entirely dedicated to this subject, your decision.

      What do you think? You are the expert and for you it should not be a big deal, but the final result would be exceptional. I believe the idea is very interesting and will end up having an even more complete series of animations than anybody else.

      Well, would you accept this proposal, task, challenge and make Halo Poser even greater? I warmly hope for an affirmative answer, let me know.

      Kind regards

      • Halofarm August 4, 2018 7:35 am  Reply

        While I appreciate your interest, I have also declared many times that I don’t accept requests or proposals from other people. I make these mods purely for my own self-interest. My preference is exactly the style of pose I have been creating all along. I’m not overly interested in making consecutive action shots like those. My style is aimed towards posed pinups, which is what Halo’s Poser works for.

        That aside, I’m also taking a bit of a break at the moment, so I’m not planning on making any poses any time soon.

        In the end, I would say I’m probably not the guy you should speak to about this. There are quite a few people out there now who are capable of making poses, and a lot of them are more interested in the style you’re talking about. It might be in your interests to have a look around and see who’s out there that might be more motivated to take part in that kind of project.

            I can’t say I can direct you to one specific person. I would be remiss to expect anyone in particular to be willing to take on a request like that, but a lot of folks release posers on places like tumblr these days. I’d suggest if you want to find a more willing candidate, you should have a look around the Skyrim community there and see who you can find. It seems to be the place where most of the new posers come from these days.

      Good morning,

      I wanted to ask you this question a while ago and never got the right time.

      I noticed that almost all poses are “dynamic” I mean the NPC moves his head to follow the Player, which is very good as it gives the possibility to take very realistic pictures, but some poses, mainly in PinUP Stand1/2/3 and others, are “static” i.e. the NPC is totally stuck.

      I suppose this is a setting assigned during design phase. Could it be changed in some way? Let know thank you.

      Cheers

      • Halofarm August 5, 2018 10:01 pm  Reply

        They actually shouldn’t be. I’ve been using the static setting for all my poses for a long time. If you’re getting poses with head tracking enabled, it’s got to be something else affecting it. I never liked my NPCs being able to break their own necks in a pose.

        I’m not sure why some of them would be one way and some would be another for you. Perhaps you’re using some third party mod along with mine?

        • Fardosa August 6, 2018 4:19 pm  Reply

          I’m using Gomapero only that uses a structure similar to yours and behaves the same way.

          To be honest I found that the “dynamic” feature is much better as it allows the NPC to move his head within a certain extent (it never rotates over 90°), that gives much more flexibility and realism.

          For example I had to discard some very good “static” poses because the head was oriented, let’s say, to the ground, not in agreement with the body bearing.

          In any case my question was: is it possible and is it something that I could change, with your help, in order to get this “dynamic” feature?

          Cheers

          • Halofarm August 6, 2018 8:48 pm  Reply

            uhh, I think it’s one of the settings in the text files that you use to generate your hkx with FNIS. I’ve forgotten which setting, so you’d have to look at the FNIS documation.

    27. Fardosa August 8, 2018 7:50 am  Reply

      Hi,

      I found it, it’s the “h” = Head tracking parameter. You’ve used it on almost all poses, except those I mentioned and on other paired poses, don’t know why, maybe these were the first ones you designed.

      I also noticed that you use “md” = motion driven, which should reset the pose to its initial position (something like that), but not on all poses. Is there any reason? Does it make any sense for static poses?

      Just asking to understand the concept behind the scenes.

      Cheers

      • Halofarm August 8, 2018 7:56 am  Reply

        Motion driven means that you can still move around while in pose. Older poses don’t have it because it wasn’t a function he added until much later on. Once he added it as a separate function, I began using it because I want to be able to move around while in pose, to get to better spots.

        • Fardosa August 8, 2018 6:40 pm  Reply

          Thank you,

          I actually told you something wrong as I inverted parameters meaning. In fact I noticed that MD is opposed to AD “animation driven” (the default) which in turn disables AI, therefore, as you said, in case of the player you need MD to still be able to move while in pose.

          Thanks again for this tech conversation.

      First of all, thank you for putting together many awesome poses and animations. It makes screenshotting easier and more fun.

      In the installation instructions it says DO NOT USE NMM TO INSTALL THIS and then at the bottom of the instructions it says activate the esp using whatever means you use to organize your mods. Umm wtf? So we have to use a mod manager anyway? Why is it that we can’t install the whole package through NMM like we can literally every other animation mod? It doesn’t occur to me that this mod is so complex that it requires a special manual installation. I can install other special mods that require a semi manual installation with relative ease like an ENB.

      Pretty disappointed that this has to be installed manually. I don’t understand why we can’t use NMM for this since it’s just an animation package. I installed this using the directions indicated in the readme that came with the file. I have CTD now probably because I’m over the animation limit that FNIS allows. So my question is how do I uninstall this?

        “Means to organise your mods” means however you turn your mods on or off and order them. This could be with the basic Skyrim launcher, it could be wrye bash, it could be NMM, or it could be mod organizer. You have to use something to turn the mod on, obviously.

        It says don’t install with NMM because I don’t make a special NMM installer to handle the different esp types and because even when it used to be set up in a way NMM should have been able to handle, NMM used to break the installation. That warning’s just there so I don’t get people coming to complain that NMM broke it. You can do that at your own risk. As for uninstalling it, the common sense thing to do would be to check what folders it added by looking inside the zip files, and then delete them from your install.

        I figured out how to uninstall this. Just go to the files you downloaded, look at those files and try to find the same files in your data folder. Pretty easy really, but it probably could have been significantly easier.

        By the way, are there any downloads that link to smaller packs that have less animations/have only animations that are in a specific category?

          I think the readme should be more specific then. It might save people some stress if they aren’t super technically inclined. It would have saved me some stress. I think now I’m going to make a data folder for it and install it the same way that I’ve installed 98% of all of my 400 mods.

          Again, thank you for your work creating these poses for everyone to use.

            There isn’t a smaller package, but you can actually pick and choose what to install by cutting out certain parts. If you delete the “PinupPoser” folder and the pinup poser hkx file in the behaviors folder, you can make the package about 1000 poses smaller.

            The rings will still appear in-game, but you can just dump those and use only the halo’s poser rings.
