This guide will show you how to curate 3DVIA using Flashpoint Core

Before You Start

This tutorial will assume you've read the standard Curation Tutorial, which is highly recommended to go through.

Recognizing 3DVIA

Plugin download button

Look for text like "Virtools Generated Page", "Made with the Virtools™ Physics Pack" or something similar is on the page and a file with the VMO extension in the page source. Select the browser's View source option and search "vmo" using the search functon, which you should be able to activate using CTRL+F. Once you find an embed, it may look something like:

ID="Virtools" WIDTH="640" HEIGHT="480"
<PARAM NAME="SRC" VALUE="tintoys.vmo">
WIDTH="640" HEIGHT="480">

Curation Steps

Download the page with the VMO embed (cURLsDownloader is good for this purpose). After this, start the curation process, changing Launch Command to point to the URL and Application Path to Basilisk. Keep testing the curationuntil the Redirector shows no missing assets for the curation. Make sure to get a picture of the logo (a prominent object if you can't find one) and a screenshot of the software title, placing these in their respective fields.

Wrapping It Up

When you're finished testing, export the curation and name the 7Z file with the name of the app and submit it to tbe #other-game-curations section of the Flashpoint Discord, or #animation-curations if it's an animation. Use the 3DVIA emoji while submitting.
