Hi, i want to load levelerEffect in my lua script to object in i3d file, which i loaded to the script. I tried "g_effectManager:loadFromNode(node, parent)"
But what is those two attributes? I set first attribute to "I3DUtil.indexToObject(spec.heap, '0|1')" and second attribute to "self", but game log says "LinkNode is nil in node attribute 'mesh'" probably from function "Effect:loadEffectAttributes" on line 119.

Instead "self" use "self.rootNode".

I tried that, but something is wrong:
Error: Running LUA method 'loadSharedI3DFileFinished'.
dataS/scripts/effects/EffectManager.lua(77) : attempt to index local 'parent' (a number value)

Solved. I did it with function "g_effectManager:loadEffect" with my own created xml file.
