Ok seem there is a way to view and edit the models of stalker but no instructions on just what a person needs or plugins to use can anybody help on what or where I can go. I do have Maya, 3dsmax, Adobe photoshop How do i view the actors and monsters modles do i need to open some file in my stalker folder or exstract some files as i did the db files for the textures. Help
All stuff is in *.db* files.. dbex_rel_en.exe is the extractor ogfviewer is.. an ogf viewer.. :) .. and all meshes are in gamedata/meshes folders
I suggest you download the 'japanese food' mod and see how it is done. Although I'm not sure of that but.. it may help you..
The 'japanese food' is what inspired me to try this. I just got back my external hd dang thing broke and it had all my unpacked db files. Im use to 2d vectors and this 3d is so mind blowing I think i found a new love. Thank you for all your advice Im sure ill be back asking for more.
there is an other problem. if you want to use the original rawdata modells from the sdk... you can not convert them back to ogf. or .... maybe something is buggy, but when you convert an object file back to ogf... you will get a ctd as soon as you spawn it to the game, with a "not enough textures for shaders" error msg :) any idea?
Ive been reading about that. I put in an e-mail to the "Japanese junk food" maker so i hope theres a response, he or she did it, just hope i can get this figured out.
Pretty sure i got it to work...maybe. Mefinks i converted to .OBJ, opened in maya and just manipulated a single vertex then saved to an OBJ again. Opened ogf viewer and set it to save to OGF, and the game seemed to run. it was a little while back though so my memories hazy, i'll give it a try again now...
ogf viewer can convert it back? i only used the actor editor from sdk, but during the export it **** up everything, and the game was complaining about "not enough textures for shaders" hmmmmm any idea?
Ok, i am absolutely certain that at one stage i used ogf viewer to open an .obj and in the file name i just manually added .ogf to the end and saved. But now it wont seem to load .obj's for me... Can anyone else do it?
Cant seem to get it to load the textures anybody gotten this to work for them. It was trying to look on my cd drive well the textures are not there they are on my G: drive??? Its funny give me a complex program to load no prob but these little ones HA what a laugh. Someone Help...:uhm:
