less work and more explosions

I was wondering if there was a possibility of anyone making some kind of mesh converter so we can use these models for BF2... If anyone is interested please help.
You do realise of course that releasing a mod publically for BF2 that contains EaW/FoC models would be illegal porting, right?
Who said he's gonna release these models? He asked for converter so maybe he just wants them for himself.
agree's with Filo but maybe Windu is just saying :D
Indeed. Never hurts to let them know :P
Is that even possible? :O
Wouldn't they look like crap because they're designed to be small?
Well, Conquer... For one thing, porting is illegal, in most cases (one rare exception I know of is Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast, both made by Ravensoft, where the developers have stated in private E-mails that texture porting between games was legal). Even if you keep it private, it's still illegal, I think. And yes, in partial reply to Xanofar and a warning to Conquer, they would be fairly low quality because of being small. Detail is not too big a problem in RTS games because chances are, you won't be looking at them close. But in a Third and First person shooter like Star Wars Battlefront 2, the textures probably will be visible up close, which would cause problems with the low quality. In short, don't do it. It's not a good idea.
I guess with the legality, at least as I understand it, it's not a problem if you have both games AND it's for personal use. Hell it's technically illegal to burn PC games yet I do it so I can play the burnt copies and leave the legit copies in storage so as to protect them. I once had a CD literally disintegrate in my CD-RW drive (I had to disassemble the drive to remove pieces of CD).
BUT I've never used them for anything except my own personal use, and I've already bought all of the games.
