It seems like the game uses Renderware, so file structure is quite similar to Vice City's. Audio is MP3, textures are PVR/TXD/PNG.

Directory tree: http://pastebin.com/n09wMip4

Let's start digging further?

Someone must check if the models use the .dff format. If yeah, then maybe someone should import a car in 3Ds Max (or ZModeler) and see if the hierarchy is the same. Maybe check if the peds use same bone hierarchy as VC ones.

 

I would do that but I don't own any iOS device.

Models are in DFF, but they can't be imported, different version of RW.

Not even using the tool DK did for VC .dffs?

Current RW version is unknown, I asked few people to crack it, so hopefully we will get them even today.

So, no more World thing. Someone could convert it to PC in speed of light then, but not me. I have enough :D Only my frontend could be worth of my time on this conversion.

 

@ThirteenAG, what about giving us some sample models? Just for check.

Good luck in GTA LCS-nextgen research! Hope if somebody create 3ds max importer (or any converter) for LCS Mobile formats (DFF and so on, Mobile -> PC), he will not forget about back conversion (PC -> Mobile). Maybe it will be a new page of Stories modding.

As I said in the other thread: the DFFs i've seen aren't used because they are in a very weird PS2 specific format that contains partially the same data as PS2 MDLs. The TXDs otoh are in a PSP format that looks rather similar to the format of PS2 TXDs.

What about dff and txd naming? Are they still stored as numbers?

 

//EDIT

It looks like I answered on my own question. Still LVZ format is here.

Maybe game is using textures from "Textures_PVR" folder, they're all unpacked.

That's very likely. As to models: Sergeanur thinks the game actually uses the PS2 dffs but I can't really believe that.

Would you guys mind sharing a few gamesaves? I want to look at the file structure. I don't have an iPhone so I can't get my hands on the game yet.

sad, I was hoping they would have actually remade it...

 

anyway, ash has been saying that the LCS mod was just handed a bountiful platter of goodies... I assume that these will be used at the first chance available?

I did a quick comparison and found many similarities between iOS and PS2. However the iOS SCM is a little larger. I haven't come across any key differences yet. Edited by thehambone

Working on a converter from LCS dff to normal dff right now. I've implemented the basics and hope I'll get something working tomorrow (never looked at this file format before, but it's relatively straight forward, just a header plus a bunch of VIFcodes).

 

XEPOMAHT007: Can you tell me why the geometry is split into multiple meshes? With RW all meshes have different materials but not in LCS, so what's the point?

XEPO, I have a question. Is there any BETA model left in the files? Since that pic with the Mini's dummy hierarchy you posted made me curious.

Most of cut vehicles have own models, so we can see very interesting infos.

Try to convert spider.dff or shelby.dff, these cars were cut.
