[REL] Renderware file converter

Recommended Posts

xiaogui319

Because this tool converts models and TXD's, VC Mobile doesn't use TXD. You're going to have to manually add that.

 

Thank you,I have solved it

I have a problem with storiesconv. Some map models have bugs and cause game to crash :/

 

Yes, that happened to me too.

 

First detect which models cause the crash (i only had one model, i guess you too, specially if you are converting LCS map like me).

Delete half IPL entries in the file that correspond the zone causing the crash. Discard those elements if crashing stops. Reduce your items until you find the bugged model.

 

If you are converting LCS like me, probably we have the same bugged model, that is ---> landpart100.dff

Go to suburb.ipl and comment that line, test.

 

Once you have found the bugged element, you can correct it with a simple 3DS Max edit, it worked for me! :happy:

Import with Kam's script, export with deniska script (you could use Kam for export too, but don't forget to activate the Vcol option or your model will lose its vertex paint (enviroment light/shadow effect), and even with Vcol activated, sometimes the model can look too bright, deniska dff exporter solves that with geometry light box unchecked).

@The Hero: does this convert from PS2 RW 3.7.0.2 also? I'm trying to convert some Bully objects to RW 3.6.0.3 (GTA SA PC version) but seems it doesn't work. Maybe I'm using the wrong commands?

convdff.exe -u -v 36003 input.dff output.dff

Thank you.

How to use the -g command on vcsconv.exe?
The location of the game.dat file should be specified?
And does it work for vehicles?

game.dat is the decompressed game.dtz, you can use zpipe to decompress it: http://gta.rockstarvision.com/utils/zpipe.exe

use like this: zpipe.exe -d < game.dtz > game.dat

 

The reason I added the -g switch is that vehicle dummies are stored in game.dtz and not in the model so to get a nice correct dff you have to read both files.

zpipe.exe -d C:\Users\Администратор\Desktop\DFF\in\game.dtz C:\Users\Администрато

р\Desktop\DFF\out\game.dat

zpipe usage: zpipe [-d] < source > dest

What am I doing wrong?

Excuse me, but I do not understand...

Please, show an example of what should be the correct path to the files

 

The path to the files should be specified as in convdff.exe?

That's weird, it's in the same folder as the convdff.exe

But that seems to be in C:/users/yourusername/Desktop/gta3img, you're telling it to load from C:/users/yourusername/

Ohh I get it. Had to change directory through the "cd" command. It worked now, thanks.

Hi there. Have some questions.
As it says, 

Quote

While the stream file formats (DFF and TXD) are similar to the real RenderWare formats, they're not the same, especially since RslGeometry and RwGeometry are so different (link)

So, I was trying to convert ped from LCS Android .dff to RW .dff using lcsconv.exe (dffconv.exe says strange things about lack of geometrylist). It works fine except some mesh face flipping.
What I'm doing wrong? It is an app feature or KAM's script trouble? How to get model converted without any troubles?
And another quiestion is where I can find LCS .dff file structure (bytes, chunk structure, if its different) or who can give me deep (for programmers) explanation the difference between RW .dff and RL .dff? I need this now, but have no time for reverse engineering.

That's just how it is. The stories games don't do backface culling so some faces can be flipped. cj2000 found some logic behind this but it didn't apply to all kinds of files strangely so I'm not messing with that.

I had documented some stuff on the gtamodding wiki but it has been dead for weeks, no idea if it ever comes back.

If you want to find out more about the stories file formats, you can just check out my code: https://github.com/aap/librwgta/tree/master/tools/storiesconv for dffs in particular the conversion starts here: https://github.com/aap/librwgta/blob/master/tools/storiesconv/rslconv.cpp#L454

Very thankful for that.
Btw, gtamodding wiki is still avaliable in Wayback Machine. Last snapshots was made at April 7, this year.
