Re: Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Models?

( try to split the file. use a hex editor. search for "unityfs" and set a reminder on the start and ends. then c/p the subcontainers into seperate files. I tested 1, 2, blah. asset studio can open those subcontainers. i guess it's just glued together and you missing the descriptor file for the glue ...

Re: Help to view swizzling graphics

i'll not hop in there. as far as i can tell it uses lz compression to pack the bin files. this makes any reimport using for example quickbms unreliable. the size of edited textures after recompression will vary. i don't think this will work. the texture format doesn't seem to be too complex. it uses...

Re: Help to view swizzling graphics

Afaik there was/is a ton modding tools for the pc version of this. You talking the 2005 MW game, right? As a PC gamer you should not mess with those console game files. There's no point. Just google search the tools for the PC version and play on it. :)

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

you should forget about that injecting mod thing with this file hack. this will never work. neither is pcsx2 capable of extending the limit of the hardware. it's still just emulating 4MB of vram. it is pretty exact and timing sensitive program. moving bigger resources will potentially just slow it d...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

i could do that, but that would potentially breach the technical limitations of the hardware and render engine design and texture cache. think about that 4 MB of video memory. if you load a 4 times larger texture, it will reduce space for other textures and framebuffers. depending on vram usage and ...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

well. is it? i was bored enough to try and into it enough to get something done. it exports native indexed tga. supports all sample formats. i dunnno about rgba linear mem. it 'only' supports 24 bit palettes with 16 or 256 indices. the 16 color index had to be extended. gimp didn't wanna open nor sa...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

well. that's not gonna work. if you wanted to export valid data for reimport you's need the 8-bit and 4-bit indexed image type with 32-bit clut. i don't even know what the difference of CSM1 or CSM2 is. that means you'd need to convert to indexed before you export the tim2 and then still gotta creat...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

reimport with this method is not possible. to reimport the data gotta be extracted into palette tga images and they gotta be edited in indexed mode that allows the palette transparency. or they gotta convert back into indexed mode and keep the correct transparency across the palette. i'm unsure if t...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

woulda been smart to zip them up. and they all seem correct. i dunno if and where those textures are used. the env cloud looks just like a cloud with some dustmotes in it. the potion textures contains 8 parts of an animated particle in the lower portion. in case they are not used they just forgot to...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

Looks correct to me. It's a lookup texture for ramp shaders. The rest like gradient textures used for fx like this. https://imgur.com/a/6URo6Ht

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

alright. v3. i got the format byte wrong and it's using the 'internal' format enum. in case you come across rgba32 textures, it should do those too. 16 bit flat memory textures are pretty rare. i'm not fuzzed to include those rn.

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

well it's not very complicated if you know what to search for and do. like *cough* depuzzling the bitplanes, cause noesis' 4-bit decoder doesn't do it. *cough* there's also the cross pointer dance to do to resort the ps2 palette. this format being straight bitplanes is rather easy too. the swizzled ...

Re: Extracting .tex textures from the legend of spyro a new beginning (ps2)

well. have a noesis plugin. it extracts only this texture right now. if it needs more formats, like 4-bit or swizzled, i need more samples.

btw... voxels and spyro? i could make a wrong guess here, who you are. :mrgreen:
