CryENGINE 3 Cookbooking

Working my way the tutorials/recipes in the CryENGINE 3 Cookbook one this is apparent straight up - the SDK that Crytek releases keeps changing and seems to have all manner of small (yet frustrating) differences, omissions or bugs based on what they include for us in the download.



Things are largely the same as the previous Sandbox apart from these quirks. Simple things like the SpawnPoint entity isnt there any more despite the references to it in the documentation and the Cookbook. Would see if the multiplayer spawn point worked - if the Launcher would go...

So, just as a point of comparison I am downloading the ModSDK (v1.1) to see how different it is Modding instead of base SDKing (lets hope my decision to get Crysis 2 through Steam all that time ago wont cause any probs).

Plus there is always the CryEngine2 instead if the new engine just isnt going to be nice to me...

Multiplayer SpawnPoint does work. I'm having the same problem with the cookbook. They moved the spawnpoint from entity/other to entity/multiplayer. It worked for me the first time placing one and then launching it. Second time it gave me the xyz handles but was invisible when placed in the scene and then didn't work when launching(put me automatically at 0,0,0). deleted my user folder, reset default layout and finally deleted everything and redownloaded the entire sdk and still doing the same thing. Kinda a show stopper if I can't even spawn.
