[Req] Finn and Jake's Epic Quest: .43 file converter

Post by JesteR » Tue Oct 09, 2018 3:40 pm

Hello world! This is my first post and I need your help!
--
Information regarding the .43 is quite limited being one of the only sites with any information I'm requesting your aid
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=10401
(Side note the converter found on the above thread doesn't appear to work on these .43 models)

After extracting assets from the game "Finn and Jake's Epic Quest" I've hit a bit of a problem; all of the models are in .43 format. I would like to port them over to sfm/vrchat but I'd need a way to convert the models into a decent file type such as a .obj or an .3ds and any help is of great assistance to the efforts!

The file attached contains .43 mesh files for the Ice King and the Flame King. Thank you for your time!

Format looks simple. You can find all the necessary info there, including the FVFsizes.

Not really. :D

The UV start address is the vertex start offset plus the vertex size. For exmaple the vertex start offset of Iceking_Meshl is 0x10500, while vertex size is 0x10480, so the UV address should be 0x10500 + 0x10480 = 0x20980.

Here's a Noesis python script to import the models:
fmt_FaJEQ_43.rar
Bones are not supported coz there's no parenting info.

your samples open with finale00's existing 43 Noesis script :D

linked from here

however it is rare to see .43 files these days unless you
are using an old tool or script for unpacking Unity files.
most use "Asset Studio" or "UABE" to convert the data to usable on the fly. :)
