I finally got Direct Session to work. I don’t understand why this tool is pushed to the back of the manual. Its almost hidden away. I’d love to see a tutorial series built around this tool.
For those that haven’t used it. Start reading about it here:
www.panda3d.org/manual/index.php/T … ph_Browser
www.panda3d.org/manual/index.php/E … Navigation
To get the Direct Session panel to appear:
Open up the etc folder (mines located here C:\Panda3D-1.5.2\etc)
Open the Config.prc file with Notepad.
Change want-directtools #f to want-directtools #t
Change want-tk #f to want-tk #t
Save the changes and close the file
Open up your code file (***.py)
Add import direct.directbase.DirectStart to your code
Save and run your file
