I was worcking on a tool that converts stories mdl file to GTA SA dff one and now I am presenting the first beta here.

 

Features:

1. corect hirarchy import

2. 100% corect UV map import

3. vehicle features: carcols materials and extras import.

Konwon bugs:

1. sometimes some faces are fliped.

 

Special thanks:

Leeao for helping with reading mdl geometry data.

 

How to use:

 

So here the deskription: you have to start the tool in comandline with "mdltodff.exe input.mdl output.dff" where input.mdl is the path to the mdl file you want to convert and output.dff is the path to the dff file that should contain the output.

A posibly easier solution could be a bat file.

Thanks, but fixing the only one known bug could be a problem, however cars and weapons can be converted without problems, only LCS peds have this bug. Also don´t know which other bugs the tool could have.

Make a new text file, write CMD save as .bat and launch it.

Yes a bat file is a really good, and at least for me personaly very easy solution, but for the final version of the tool I want to make a GUI to make it even easier.

How to use this seriously?

There's no readme inside the file, I tried dragging .mdl file to the .exe it doesn't work

Is there any command to make it work?

 

E: It's okay now, I didn't read much of the posts
