A few questions

Hi. I really still new to blender and the GE and have some questions

  1. why do textures not show when playing the game?
  2. how do you add animation to objects ?
  3. Can you change the shape of the bounding sphere radius?
  1. You probably need to make a blender material with your texture.
  2. Check out Armatures and IPO animation
  3. use the radius settings by the dynamic button.

The Game Engine is rather limited in terms of materials. My method is to create a material for an object, then light it evenly from all sides, unwrap it, and do a render-bake. This means I get to use a UV-Face texture, which works well in the game engine. Make sure to have the draw mode be textured for these to show up.
