[PC] Monopoly plus .DPC


Recommended Posts

monopoly plus archives, when opened in hex editor i can see this "v1.2000.77.18 - Asobo Studio - Internal Cross Technology" there are several tools online that i will link but they dont work.
there are several files with the same name but different extention: dpc jpg npc and lpc

this one doesnt work at all:
https://github.com/widberg/dpc

this one seems like it would work if
"main_switch = 1" but i couldnt figure out how the code works since idk anything about coding
https://github.com/bartlomiejduda/Tools/blob/master/NEW Tools/Asobo Studio DPC DPS Research/Asobo_DPC_DPS_Tool.py

please, i need help, im trying to get models and textures for a map, id like to 3d print it cuz i think its cool, thanks in advance heres sample

Because it doesn't support "monopoly", afaics.

"main_switch = 1"

Why switch 1? switch 2 seems to do better, creates 38 bin files with a size of 2 MB

But you'll need much patience to figure out the structures. And some basic understanding of 3D formats.

Thanks! Is "beachkit3" from Living.DPC?

Only beach I found in decompressed data (by Bartlomiej Duda's tool) is CITY_amb_area4_beach.

Hmm, I'm not sure whether he decompressed the .DPC. Looks like simple splitting up of the file into 2 MB parts.

Cool! Thanks! (I was just starting a bms script with comtype bizarre_skip and get ZSIZE asize,
get NAME basename, etc,  but the DPC's structure was unknown to me...)

 

edit: very cool: 9530 files extracted.

I started your .py file from blender (not from the command line, as maybe expected).

Had to add the full path then:

mapFile='D:\\test\\LIVING.NPC'
inDir = 'D:\\test\\unpack'
outDir = 'D:\\test\\unpack'

-----------------

And, nice: BEACHKIT03_LOD1_MESH.TMESH

Very appreciated! (Would have taken me 2 weeks at least to get that far...)

@all: getting all models as .obj from that DPC will require a script or an app. If noone else will do it I try that (sooner or later).

(Well, seems I get x swapped, whyever.)

FVFsize may vary; for this house it's 44:

HOUSECOLOR03_ETAPE6_MESH.TMESH

Oh, you're back.:classic_smile:

Well, it would be nice to have a map of the Living level (screenshot) where the location of objects, houses etc can be seen.

Thanks. I see, it's not a ready build map. It's developed during the game, I thought, the Living.LPC was a part of the map but it looks like a pure assets' archive.

So what I was looking for were the coordinates of objects and maybe they're in the T3DNODE files.

The jail for example had a fixed place in the board game, afair, but the buildings not (can be placed nearly everywhere) and interestingly the assumed position in the t3dnode file is filled with FFs.

The railway line might have a defined position; I found PATHTRAIN02_001.TSPLINE for example.

I judge the FVFsize to be 12 from the DW counters and blocksizes but the lines I get look funny somehow.

Couldn't find a trainstation, just:

Electricbuilding_trainstation

edit:  This is supposed to be a board plane

(livingboard.tworld)

i tried making a noesis script for importing but idk anything about scripting, there us just some info have gathered that i will share with yall

note this was done only on NPC_BOY_NPC_BOY_MESH.TMESH

again im not skillful enough since i just started, so if there is anything that i named wrongly feel free to correct me, i wanna learn this stuff, its fun

Everything ok (though instead of "stride" I prefer using FVFsize which is 44 here):

i tried making a noesis script for importing but idk anything about scripting, 

It's on my list to create a script from parameters (sooner or later).

Ignore the # lines in this testx.py, they're commented out which I uncomment for debugging purposes.

##### Will work with NPC_BOY_NPC_BOY_MESH.TMESH only! #####

For other TMESH files set vertexCount and faceIndCount manually.

vertsStride may be 32 for other models (stride 20 in MR).

Also notice that I handle vertsStride as "sizeOfVertexBlock" (=FVFsize) other than MR, where stride is 32 (44 -12)

Well, no, sorry. My free time is very limited, so I fear, you'll need to read tutorials for such.

I don't know a special one for Noesis python scripting but you'll need to learn the 3D basics before, anyways.

See links in one of my previous posts.

edit: after you've gained the basics we could discuss the previous Noesis script, of course.
