A welcome option would be to clean vertex light/prelight from the dff's

Updated. Fixed some bugs. Most importantly polygon winding from SA PS2 DFFs is correct now.

Bug reporting time. Some mobile models cannot be converted such as these

tree_hipoly04.dff chunk 14 not found at 0xffffffffcj_detector.dff chunk 14 not found at 0xffffffffcj_hobby_c_1.dff chunk 14 not found at 0xffffffff

I think this doesn't convert animation in dff (SA PS2 2 PC) for example pleasure-dl.dff - bubbles aren't moving

Indeed. This tool is pretty sh*tty. I had started work on a better version but am busy with other things atm. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Any bug reports will probably be ignored as long as they pertain to this version here. I hope I will find some time to work on the new version again.

Probably the same issue like this.

 

I tested the map more deeper and the casino lights on Venturas, doesn't move also the waterfalls on The Visage doesn't work too.

 

Aha, interesting. Looks like a problem with the UV animation then. We'll see when I'll get to it.

Mr. Jago

dffconv.exe -c -V 0x0C02FFFF file.dff file_output.dff

dffconv.exe -c -v GTAVC_1 file.dff file_output.dff

Hey Hero, I hope you can fix the problem with the UV animations in the DFFs soon, please. Would be nice. :D

Yeah, that would be nice. But I'm no longer working on that old code base, it's a dead end. Unfortunately I'm not working on the new version either because I'm too busy with university at the moment :/ I really hope I will have some time to make everything work, I have so many plans :D

I understand your concerns, my friend. University can really wreck your plans when it comes to what you do in your free time. You still have not looked at my MSVC port of your new codebase, please do that. :)

Just wanted to say I've made some very good progress on librw (https://github.com/aap/librw) the last couple of days.

I can read, write, instance and uninstance opengl, xbox, d3d8 and d3d9 native geometry now and I implemented some other stuff as well. The biggest thing missing currently is the one it all started with: uninstancing PS2 geometry. This time I want to do it properly and I hope I'll get to it when I get home, but otherwise pretty much all DFFs features are now supported.

Of course...I haven't implemented all the pipelines yet (xbox SA uses quite different building pipelines because they don't use night vertex colors), but mobile should work fine and III/VC anyway.

Now the UV animations will work for SA PS2 DFF? :D

Haha, i actually looked into that problem yesterday or so. Turns out my conversion wasn't the problem but the game attaches the wrong pipeline. See, the PS2 files have an extra vertex color chunk in these files which I just wrote back into the PC files, *but* the PC game attaches the CustomBuilding or CustomBuildingDN pipeline when it sees a model with extra vertex colors and UV animations only work when using the MatFX pipeline (with the UV transform effect). So, unintuitively, it works when you remove the extra vertex colors. I'm not sure what to fix here, either not write the extra colors or make the game behave...But in any case I haven't implemented PS2 uninstancing yet anyway...it's by far the hardest, opengl, xbox, d3d8 and d3d9 are a piece of cake.

I was bored so I made a little .bat to make the use of this awesome toool easier. Tell me if you found any bug cause I just tested a few files, but everything seems to work perfect.

 

http://www.mediafire.com/view/tyaa5ha5sr51ilu/rwconv.bat

 

Use of .bat is easy, extract content of hero's rwconv.zip in anyfolder you want.

Create an in folder and an out folder.

copy my bat to the root of the folder.

place the .txd/.dff you want to convert into the in folder.

pick the converted ones from the out folder.
