Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3, PC)

Version 0.8 of import_valkyria is out! This version adds support for many (not all) model files from Valkyria Chronicles 4 . crymaria.jpg It also improves support for objects positioned by bones, so lots of models from the first game will import more accurately now, too. That's thanks to a contribu...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3, PC)

Just took my first look at some files from Valkyria Chronicles 4. Judging from the textures, vl_vc001.mlx is the Hafen and vl_vc002.mlx is the Cactus. I think the "vc" part of the filename is short for vehicle. This is similar to the naming convention used in the first game, where the val_vc*.mlx fi...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3, PC)

Here's version 0.7 of import_valkyria. This adds support for the way the files are organized into folders in the Steam version of Valkyria Chronicles. Models that require other files, like vmap_set_*.mmf, should now open without any extra steps. I'm sorry I waited almost four years to fix this! I al...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3, PC)

Is anyone planning to buy the Steam version of Valkyria Chronicles 4 at launch? I preordered the Switch version instead.

I'll probably get the PC version eventually, but I was hoping someone could try opening its models with import_valkyria before then, just to see if they're supported.

Thanks!

Which model(s) are you trying to work with? Do they have textures in Blender, before you try to export them for Max?

I don't have 3DS Max, so I haven't tested exporting to it.

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3, PC)

Found the truck model! If you open VMAP_SET_015_00.MXE and zoom way out, you should see it. https://i.imgur.com/vv8EgWU.png If you can't open the VMAP_SET files, that's just because I still haven't made import_valkyria aware of the Steam file layout. It expects all the files to be in a single folder...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3, PC)

Hi Zaczac121, Unfortunately, I couldn't find the Alicia's Bakery logo in the game's texture files. It's possible I missed it somehow, but another bad sign is that the epilogue sequence in which her bakery appears is a pre-rendered video (EV1901.PAM). So the model wouldn't have to be included with th...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

Good news, everyone! The data files for the recently-released PC version of Valkyria Chronicles are all unencrypted and extracted. All you have to do now is buy the game on Steam, and you can open the models in Blender with import_valkyria . The PC version's "data" folder contains the same files as ...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

Hello, Here's import_valkyria 0.6. The main changes in this version are: Added support for most MXE files. Added support for most ABR files. Added support for double textures, but partially lost support for automatic normal maps. MXE files are lists of other files with some parameters. Most of them,...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

Hi gta1211,

No, import_valkyria will only work in Blender. Blender is free and cross-platform, though, and it can export models as .3DS files. But I can't say how well that works, because I don't have 3DS Max.

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

I think I might have solved the problem I described in my last post. You can now articulate fingertips, etc. The bones are a little bit weird, though. It might be a tradeoff rather than a complete fix. I'll let you decide. In addition to the vertex group fix, I improved support for pieces of equipme...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

Hello again, In my hmdl-import-0.4 announcement, I mentioned that I used a hack to get the bones to work properly. I'm going to elaborate on that here. This is partly a warning to anyone who plans on using the bones as imported by 0.4, and partly a request for help in case anyone can easily identify...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

Hi windfury, Funny you should ask! After not working on my Blender importer for a long time, I recently picked it back up. I got preliminary support for bones working on the same day you posted your last message. :) This isn't finished, but I'll release what I have so far as version 0.4. Changes sin...

Re: Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

The incorrect UVs are on her left eye. Aside from that, great job so far, looking forward to more progress from you guys. :D EDIT: Whoops, it seems that this was the issue with your version 0.1 which you already fixed in version 0.1.1. I guess it wasn't a UV problem but polygon orientation, my bad....
