How is the work going on it? I don't use blender and having this tool would really help me? Also does it fix uvw problems or do we have to manually do it ourselves?

New version of Blender Importer is here.

Only one minor addition of a second "Alternate Load 2" flag to work around missing-faces type of load error. Enjoy

Edit: newer version below.

Having problems converting all the textures needed when using ctex_all.bat.

example: eyebrow[d].tga.dds (exception Connor eyebrows)

Decals folders, generally seems to be the smaller files?

Thanks

it's files with transparency (decals, eyebrows, etc).

I made a tool to convert those that won't load right. Unzip this somewhere, and drop the problem DDS files on the "go.bat" and it will convert them to PNG.

Just wondered if anyone has assembled an NPC character e.g ENG_REACTORCORE: NPC Adriana.

After importing all the mesh required and then both armatures FEMALENPC & ADRIANA (Mirror X on both)
1. Adriana Armature: delete body bones to leave the necessary facial bones down to the neck bone
2. FemaleNPC Armature: delete head bones leaving neck bone
3. Shift select adriana then femalenpc and CTRL-J (join armatures)
4. Parent adriana neck to femalenpc and connect

Once all mesh is attached to the armature all functions correctly apart from the right arm drags part of the head mesh.
I'm a Blender novice so it may be something obvious that I'm missing :)

Thanks

Since this is the second post about 'arm dragging the head", I guess I need to make something clearer.

There's two copies of every character model. lets say "Adriana", and the second copy is "Adriana_FP". The meshes for these two copies is identical. The Skeleton, is *not* identical. You can't use Adriana_FP meshes with Adriana skeleton. Nor can you use Adriana meshes with Adriana_FP skeleton.
If you try you get bone mismatch.

So the fact you're seeing this isn't a problem with the extractor or the plugin. It means you're using the wrong skeleton or wrong meshes together.
you can't mix as you please. The fact you're having to delete bones is probably a clue it's the wrong skeleton.

And why you would join two skeletons together is beyond me. You should only be using Adriana skeleton with Adriana meshes. Doing anything else, the bone ID's are simply not going to match. If a particular shirt/pants doesn't work with the Adriana skeleton, that means it's not meant for that skeleton, try another. The parts are not interchangeable, they didn't design it that way.

The FemaleNPC skeleton works with the female NPC - TORSO, LEGS & SHOES whilst the ADRIANA skeleton doesn't, that only functions for the HEAD.
The FemaleNPC skeleton does not contain bones for the facial movement, whilst the ADRIANA skeleton does.

Joining two skeletons together is not uncommon with certain game assets within Blender e.g DOA5

Options for Female NPC characters:
1. Boiler Suit
2. Shirt
3. T-Shirt
4. T-Shirt Long Sleeves

None of the above work with Adriana skeleton. Yet all function with FemaleNPC.

If they didn't design it that way how do you shed light on the fact that the FemaleNPC skeleton has no facial bone movement yet the NPC character skeletons do?

Maybe there is a hidden skeleton (key) that fits all :D

So, anyone who has compiled these characters I would be grateful to know how it was done, Thanks for your time.

There are a ton of skeletons we didn't bother to identify. so yes there probably is one. We only spent time on the main characters.

That was mostly Cra0's project, as far as I know it was never finished.

Yeah sorry never finished that, you can use volfin's blender script to import the models then export them out as obj,fbx etc

Or write a maxscript that will read the omodels
