No collision doesn't work (yet). That's a different file format.. Hope we can get collisions to work really soon smile.gif

When i try to conver a DFF model, on 95% the program stops on the "Adding Padding Till 4096", and nothing happens then. confused.gif

 

Can someone help me? Thanx blush.gif

 

And sorry for my bad english

 

EDIT: Forget it! It was stopping because the DFF file was on the folder of DFF2WDR.exe. Just move it do Desktop and then the convertion is ok! Thanx

Oh man, oh man. With release of such awesome programs, I can now see huge modding projects coming up for GTA IV (and the GTA:SA -> GTA IV total conversion/map conversion we all want that will make the console fanboys cry)!

When I try to convert a weapon from SA, but as soon as I go and buy it, it crashes. Do I have to open the model in 3DS Max and then go from there?

 

Because, that's gonna be a problem for me. I don't have 3DS max. sad.gif.

 

Is there no other way around this?

 

Also, great work on this mate!

You can't convert weapons. Melee objects and projectiles are another story.

When I convert a dff model into a wdr file it works perfect. But all wdr files I converted are only 4 kb and when I open the file with the wdr analyzer there is nothing.

 

Can someone help me?

which models are you trying to convert? Remember it's sa dff's only. So if you want to convert models from vice city you'll need to import them into max and then export it as an SA dff. smile.gif

Yeeehaaa! Great Job, Dude! cookie.gif

I've tested some custom dff's (Kam&Deniska Maxscripts) and I've got no probs so far. The WDR-Analyzer shows everything correctly (also a cool tool)...unfortunately I got no IV at work. So, I will do some InGame tests later, but this euphoric post just had to be. wink.gif

 

Btw...did you already thought about creating a Maxscript...maybe in cooperation with Gforce? moto_whistle.gif

 

Anyway...now let the map-object-modelling-show beginn!

 

Thanx a lot...and Rock on!

But the weapons position in Niko's hand is not ok, so, does someone know how can i change the position of the weapon on Niko's hand? Here's a picture of my Revolver project:

Known issues

- You can't convert weapons. (weapons contain bones)

 

So that is probably why your weapon is moved

Loser! IT HAS NO BONES! so how the hell Niko can hold the revolver correctly if it has no bones?! Is anyone home in your brain???

You know, it could just be an issue with the object origin being different. No need to add insult to injury, he was told a clue by JV, then you attacked him dude. That's not very friendly, that's all.

 

Compare the models in 3ds max. The gun is there it IS held... It is just not aligned properly. I can't see why bones would be used for that, I can see them used for animations on the weapons, recoil and stuff, but though I haven't really dived into these files yet, I assume this is an issue that can be fixed by

 

import WDR to max (there's some tool, I don't know where it is, makes this possible)

import DFF to max. Line up the handle to where niko would hold it as good as possible (and check the WDR in game to make sure of just where it goes in nikos hand)

attach WDR to DFF, delete all parts of WDR mesh.

 

Now export an SA weapon DFF and then give it a try in dff2wdr.

 

Again, I didn't look at these files yet, and I don't understand why they'd use bones to place something that is currently placed, just offset from where it should be. If the bone attached it to his hand, he wouldn't be holding it, unless I totally miss something, I'm definitely not an animator, but this problem was common with weapons in the past, if indeed a bone is required, I would love to understand it, thanks.

No no no no! I can't believe I won't be able to test this for a while... I need to upgrade my PSU to handle my new GPU and I'm stuck with god damn integrated graphics so I can't test this out! Damn!

 

Great work though Prince, biggest step so far in IV modding so far smile.gif. Question though, how do you place the models in the right place on the map? Is it luck? Co-ordinates? Or that WPL tool? What does the tool do, by the way?

 

Great work man!

The easieast way to test the new models is to replace a existing model, as there is yet no clear way on how to create new map objects (would need WPL editing)

 

@Supermortal human: Bones are needed for the place where niko holds the gun and where the bullets come out of, I don't know how the weapon work without them, though

But it's euphoria, there are no bullets. Ohhhhhhhh, I get it now! Well, maybe that does make sense then, I'd still like to see someone try that whole allow-dff-to-inherit-wdr's-local-coords thing. Cause as you said, it is working for some reason wow.gif

 

I wonder if the game makes the bones and the ones in the models are ignored, only used at an earlier time before release? It could be possible, if the game doesn't need them, it won't even notice them being gone, and it "doesn't seem to care". If that is possible, then, someone should definitely heir the wdr to the dff and give it a shot.

 

Interesting, to say the least.

...I can't see why bones would be used for that.....

I noticed that the weapon that I converted was up side down when doing a drive by

 

mabe all the "bones" do is tell how the weapon behaves in particular anims.

So, a lot of people say'd that was impossible to fix the weapon location on Niko's hand. But i fixed that. And the weapon is working perfectly. The only thing that the weapon don't have is the muzle thing, but this is not the most important part. Soon i'll do a demonstration video of the weapon.

 

Here's a picture of the Revolver.
