[REL|BIN/SRC|Beta] SparkIV


aru

Recommended Posts

New version 0.5.4, updated on the first post @ here.

 

There's a critical bug fix, so updating is highly recommended.

 

Version 0.5.4 Features

- Fixed critical bug in texture size calculation for mipmaps

- Added support for 8bit grayscale (L8) textures

- Added support for "type 8" vertices in models

 

----

 

@Voodooman... someday, eventually smile.gif

 

@LaMuerteX/pinky... should be fixed with 0.5.4.

 

@JKM... fixed with 0.5.4

 

@ArkangelJosh... thats correct... no compiler exists yet for scruff's untyped pseudo-C format. However, I welcome anyone to write one smile.gif

 

@H1Vltg3... apparently thats a bug with the GDI+ included in Windows 7 beta, so I have no control over that. Maybe that'll get fixed with the final release of Win7...

 

@HomeInmyHEad... when you imported the file, you OVERWROTE and REPLACED the existing files with the same name. SparkIV does not currently support adding new files or deleting existing files as that functionality will only be required once we have the ability to create new files from scratch. I hope you read and followed the warning about creating backups, and if you did, you should be able to restore those files from the backup img/rpf.

Aru what about WDD support ? are you working on it yet ? this will help modding a whole lot if you can get this coded

Many thanks aru,

 

A small suggestion, you could do that when you save an image or load, leaving the name of the texture like openIV and not have to manually type the name, is something that saves us work to publishers. very grateful.

 

and one question, it would be possible to create an option for expanding the size of a texture? for example if this is 128x to 256x resize you think?

 

is very useful for me if possible, some textures and helmets, the quality is perfect but at 256x niko has 2 of 3 are 128x texture and detail is somewhat low, get an option to resize be a very good thing for me that could improve many The Game of small details.

 

Thanks for all. greetings

Have you modded the file using Open IV previously to using Spark IV?

If so you will probably need to return to the origonal file, I had the same thing with the playerped.rpf file.

I have a suggestion for the next version. It would be great if we could select to apply a texture on a clothing model, from playerped.rpf. It would be really great when skinning outfits, cause we wouldn't need to go in-game everytime. Would that be possible?

 

I mean like, make a menu, so when you view a clothing model, you can select to appply one of the several wtd files that outfit uses.

Hi aru,

 

Firstly, I have to say that your Tool is really great! icon14.gif

It works very well. I changed nearly every billboard texture in the "Manhatten" Area so far. smile.gif

 

But some of them I can't replace. For example: In the .img archive "manhat09" there is one file named "ts_branding3_dc9.wdr". And if I want to edit this one, I got an error message. I can ignore this error and open the file anyway. But then he show me only 6 textures which I can replace. The rest of them (in all 21 textures) I can't see. But I can see them if I open this file with the "view" button of your program.

 

So, can you help and explain me why this don't work with only this file?

 

That would be great.

@LaMuerteX... can do. Will add to next version.

 

@YoiTzBuGzBuNnY... run as admin.

 

@simkas... will add to the list of things to do. smile.gif

 

@FUBAR... its a bug, and its fixed in svn. Will be included in next general release.

Aru, may I ask you a favor? Add a "Drag & Drop" ability, to open IMG/RPF files.

Will be very useful, because I'm easly lost with the embedded browser!

 

Thank you smile.gif

 

--- update: or maybe a "favorites" thingy ?

heres an important question, can i somehow use 1024 texture on the car intriors, im looking to do some modified interiors but cant seem to get higher than 512, spark loads the 1024 maps into the files, but when i play the game they are shrunk to 512.

 

p.s great program btw, makes texture edit simple smile.gif

@Ftmch... it's trying to load ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll but cannot find it. Did you extract all the files?

 

@relliksoul.. SparkIV will automatically resize all imported textures to the original size. It doesn't support changing the texture dimensions unfortunately.

Hello there

 

Thanks for your great tool smile.gif

 

 

I suggest "Change Level" update, like OpenIV..

 

I like your tool, is fast and useful cookie.gificon14.gif

Change levels is a weird feature in openIV... Spark does the mipmaps automatically (Better than OpenIV, that only allows having all the mipmaps in the same texture size... stupid thing )

Actually, Spark does the mipmaps so the texture will appear, But "change levels" is useful when you want your resolution to be personal. In my case, I run the game in Low or Medium res, But Niko's face and clothes in High, thanks to the "change levels" option.

 

So Fabio's suggest is great. Especially since Spark is better for WDR and WDD support. Btw, I'm so hoping WDD geometry editing is next thing on the To do List.

I have a problem, when I try to export or view Niko's face in SparkIV it's like it has gaussian blur on with no background?

Don't know if it's been discussed already...

 

 

I don't have any mods, here's the screen:

And that means.....? I can export all other textures just fine, they look OK in Photoshop, but this particular face texture just doesn't seem right. And other people edited Niko's face with no problem, so what is MY problem? biggrin.gif
