Usually I don't write scripts. I prefer using the Make_obj tool. Sometimes. But I've spent too much time with this simple format already.

I gave H2O files for use with hex2obj. To give you the idea. If you want a script you'll need to wait for someone else.

Ok thank you

Well, this format could be a good opportunity to revive the Make_obj/Make_H2O project(s). Will take some weeks, though, because I don't have much spare time.

edit: couldn't resist; but one of the 9 sub meshes was weird. Need to calculate/estimate the FVFsizes because I didn't find them so far.

Well, take as much time as you need. your help is very good, oh one more thing I asked one of the guys at the xentax discord server about this format he said it doesn't have a header and that's why it's almost impossible to write a script if you want I can send you the rest of the files taken from the game

This guy doesn't seem to know that the magic tables (addresses, counts) are in the modelgdb file.

The FVFsize is the thing in question but it can be calculated from the other values.

You might test it this evening, I guess.

The raw .modelbin data file had no headers, which was what I was replying to because that was all that was posted at the time.  Now that I've seen the .modelgdb files I can see the full structure of the data.  You've got vertex data size and vertex count to calculate the stride, and each submesh has a VertexFormat value (such as 0xfcf003b) which somehow indicates which vertex elements are present.  Some are Floats, some are Shorts, but that info is hard to interpret accurately - that's the only unknown in the submesh info.

@all: you may try out this Make_H2O project. But you'll need hex2obj for processing the .H2O files.

If you don't have hex2obj I'm sorry. You'll need to wait until I'll upload a fixed version, next year, maybe. I don't like the old one.

Or wait for someone's script.

edit: last sub meshes H2O needs to be corrected (FVFsize, always)

here number ... _11.H2O (32 instead of 52):

0x95b40 22
Vb1
32 24
0x95b6c 16
021000
0x95b84 255

@all: Vocêpode experimentar este Make_H2O projeto. Mas você precisará de hex2obj para processar o . Arquivos H2O.

Se você não tem hex2obj eu sinto muito. Você vai precisar esperar até que eu vou carregar uma versão fixa, no próximo ano, talvez. Não gosto do antigo.

Ou esperar o roteiro de alguém.

editar: últimas submalhas H2O precisa ser corrigido (FVFsize, sempre)

aqui número ... _11.H2O (32 em vez de 52):

0x95b40 22
Vb1
32 24
0x95b6c 16
021000
0x95b84 255

a small problem the tool can only correctly read the modelbin/modelgdb ones that I gave you and the others it creates the h20 files but hex2obj exports exploded meshes

Without a sample of that kind I can't tell. Delete the last H2O file (biggest number) as a workaround then use hex2obj again (delete all .obj files before).

For the textures: you'll need to get the dimensions from the texturegdb file. Seems it's not 296x2304. It looks swizzled also.

296

296 is a clear indent to a block of lines. after indentation uint SizeBlocStrings , > аrr_strings (string up to the first null byte)

00 09 00 00 - this is the possible number of nodes, since after are 2 uint (zero, unk) and 9 indents to the nodes, I think so

Each "node" has 2uint at the beginning as (Offset_in_Strings_block, LenName):: edit: Not LenName, maybe type node?

here are some gdb files decrypted or in text, whatever
unfortunately the textures gdb doesn't have any in .text

I had some batch processing with GUI (other format) but it was ugly and

refraining from a GUI is harder than you may think of.

I'd not be surprised if DKDave or someone else presented a script before I even get into action...

 

edit: found that batched version from 5 years ago. Maybe I'll check it next week.

btw: batch processing is rather worthless, imho, without included texture handling. Which I usually don't care for.
