Does that include the map stuff from TWD3 too? I havent got to that game yet but I remember there was an issue with that.
...Ah, crap, I completely forgot to check that (and it turns out I accidentally broke it further!).

Script's fixed now! Sorry about that! And yeah, it should be working now as it was due to the same problem that the GotG models had.

Which quickbms script do I use to convert The Walking Dead Season 1 textures from D3DTX to DDS?
Doesn't TTArchExt have the ability to automatically convert those?
I’m not sure. I’ve used Telltale Explorer to convert them to dds.
I've had issues in the past trying to convert them to DDS with the TTArch thing myself, I think it brings up errors, but yeah Telltale Explorer works fine for the older games.

Could somebody explain to me how exactly does this new option option works(the one where you can choose DDS or PNG), it can import meshes with textures already applied on it right? If so how can i do that? I already tried to put d3dtx files in the same folder as the .ms script, but it didn't applied textures automatically on mesh, then i tried to put all meshes, skl and d3dtx files in the folder where .ms file is located and it didn't worked out too!

P:S Also if i understand it all wrong, and i need to apply textures myself, i have one problem with it now, with the very new TTG games came out, there is that new texture files all models have now which looks something like that
sometexturename_microdetail_mask,
sometexturename_microdetail_spec,
sometexturename_anisotropymask,
sometexturename_anisotropytangent
and also some face textures called
sometexturename_headwrinkle_nm,
sometexturename_headwrinklea_mask,
sometexturename_headwrinkleb_mask.
So what i'm asking is, how do i apply them on basic textures? or on model? (but applying on textures will be better for porting purposes though, for which i actually need it)
And i really need to apply them, cuz textures looks different from ingame if you don't apply these ones on them!
PP:S Just if you curious, i am extracting Batman: The Enemy Within meshes (currently it's Harley, but i'm also planning to export all other Pact members(including goons) some items, and The Pact subway lair)

The older games like TWD season 1, Poker Night 2 etc come with pre-applied textures. I think the DDS or PNG thing is to search the folder specifically for that format, otherwise it doesnt really matter? I can't be sure about that.

For the later games, I tend to just drag and drop the textures onto specific parts of the model and hope for the best lol. The most part it's straight forward naming though, stuff like mask, bump, spec etc, you could open the material editor (hotkey M in 3ds max) and goto maps, I tend to leave those myself though, I probably shouldnt. I think for things like head wrinkle etc, those are just alternate skin textures usually like with The Walking Dead you have blood and tears, or a zombie face, and the details are those comic type lines on the characters. If you load the characters in using split, those additional mesh layers go with that, but if you can find a way to overlay the textures in photoshop or something, it'd be much better.

I suck at describing things :P

I don’t know if I can post this here but I started a Model Ripping Project for Telltale Games if anyone is interested in helping out. https://www.vg-resource.com/thread-3062 ... #pid630088

Sure, I'll explain things a bit.

Basically, the changes made were to match a few of my other scripts a bit more. Let's just say you were importing Max's model from Sam & Max, and the folder it's in is as follows (doesn't need to be the same as the MaxScript):
Code:
C:\Models\Sam & Max S1\E1\sk22_max.d3dmesh

With the new menu options, this is where it'll look for the textures for that:
Code:
DDS / Relative = C:\Models\Sam & Max S1\E1\sk22_max.dds
DDS / Textures = C:\Models\Sam & Max S1\E1\Textures\sk22_max.dds
PNG / Relative = C:\Models\Sam & Max S1\E1\sk22_max.png
PNG / Textures = C:\Models\Sam & Max S1\E1\Textures\sk22_max.png

The DDS / Textures combination is how it worked before the recent update. But yeah, there isn't a way to directly read D3DTX files, so you'll still need to convert those with either Telltale Explorer, or TTArchExt and one of my QuickBMS scripts. That being said, here's all of the games that don't work with automatically applying textures (I'll probably add some kinda note for 'em in a later update):
Code:
Batman: The Telltale Series
Batman: The Enemy Within (Season 2)
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
Minecraft: Story Mode
Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2
Tales from the Borderlands
The Walking Dead: Season 2
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (Season 3)
The Walking Dead: Michonne
The Wolf Among Us
(And basically any other new Telltale game that is released)


As for all of the additional texture types, unfortunately I haven't done too much in the way of model renders or shaders so I can't say for sure what would be the proper way to apply them to the model.

Something is wrong with the Clementine Hat UV from the first Clementine flashback from The Walking Dead Season 2.

Nope, you're just using the wrong texture. The one for that model is "obj_hatClementineBloody".

This is why I mentioned earlier to try matching up the UV mapping to whatever texture matches it, you'll have a better understanding of 'em if you do.

I thought I was using the right texture for that.

Edit: I get this error when I try to import Alvin's Model from The Walking Dead Season 2.

Code:
Fixed importing models with vertex colours enabled because I'm a dumb fart who doesn't test everything.

Yep. Accidentally broke vertex colour importing. Don'tcha love hotfixes?
