Hello there,
First, thanks for all you've done so far.

Next, well, I must admit I followed AceWell instructions, and I still do have a problem.
What I've done :
- Download the last TFU_GTO_Ripper
- Use it to convert ImperialOfficer and Imperialtrooptransport gto files to obj files
- Import those .obj files into 3D Studio Max (9 and 2010, 32 bits under Win XP 32, using respectively default WaveFront .obj plugin, and Guruware .obj plugin)
- At this step, I obtain an ugly soup of vertices :
http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/6636/imperialship.jpg
http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/2820/imperialofficer.jpg

So, I tried to export them back to .obj files from 3D Studio Max, and I compare the files. Of course, they're very different from the original ones...

Does anyone have a hint ?
Thank you guys.
I think you need change "," to "." in your Regions and settings to.

Thank you Zerovisibilite for your new and latest GTO Ripper.
However, after a quick try with the above mentioned files, I still got the same results.

Maybe AceWell has a magic trick when importing into 3D Studio Max ?

Edit :
@Tosyk => I am not an advanced user of 3D Studio, so couldn't find this setting :D
However, I replace each "," by a "." in the .obj files, and tried to import them afterwards. It worked for both models ! :)
But to my credit, I might add I'd already tried that trick the first time (with the old new GTO Ripper), and it failed then.

Thanks for pointing up that tip again ;)

No, i'm talking about your windows! :) Control Panel -> Regions and settings -> Additional Settings (bottom button).

p.s.: sorry my window is Russian, so i can make a little mistake :)

Ok Tosyk, I could finally understand what was happening.

In the Regional Settings of Windows, the Decimal separator must be set to "." instead of "," so that, when one use the GTO Ripper, data in OBJ files are written with "." (ie "1.32" instead of "1,32").
Thus, when importing into 3D Studio Max, the import plugin correctly recognize "1.32" as a float number, which is not the case for "1,32".

That explains why :
- Using the GTO ripper THEN changing the Regional Settings does not work
- Replacing all "," by "." in the OBJ files does work

Once again, thank you all for your help :)

It's not possible for now, maybe in the future.

I created a small tool based on quickbms by Luigi Auriemma for extracting all files from SWTFU *.lp containers into one folder.
You can download it on my blog by clicking on Скачать bms unpacker (exe)

how to use:
- copy bms_unpacker_swtfu.exe into the root directory of the game (where SWTFU.exe is)
- launch
- wait (there are many duplicate files in each *.lp container, so be patient)
- after the extracting process is finished, go to <game dir>\LevelPacks\output all the extracted files will be there

note: during the unpacking process quickbms.exe will ask you to rename several files, so just rename them and press Return.

p.s.: anyway, all thanks going to Luigi

100% wrong. I learned how to rig, even with a lousy biped only, with your tool's help getting the models. So BIG thank you and fantastic work. I have spread your file and name around as you deserve many thanks.
