Kamen Rider Battride war EMD model. (PS3)

Post by alientech » Fri May 24, 2013 1:58 pm

Hi everyone. Now, I'm trying to research about the model engine from this game. I read all around the forum about emd file (Resident Evil 1 and 2).
I tried some tools for emd files but won't work for this game. So, Someone can help me learn about this file?

Here a model from the game : https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bx4rRNA ... sp=sharing

Thank you.

Just briefly looked at sample file, there will be a little problem with uvs I guess.

Funny that someone else was looking into the format at the same time, considering I started last night. And have got to more or less the same point. I've gotten an understanding of reading bones (not pictured), vertex points and polygons, but no UV mapping or bone weights yet.

So yeah, I support this, as I know a couple of friends of mine who would love to have these models.

Oh wow, How can I read EMD files?
Hmmm.... Texture files isn't include in an EMD file. It seperate to dds files.

Here texture files for this model : https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bx4rRNA ... sp=sharing

Also if it helps with setting up the UV mapping, the models are for the most part the exact same as the ones from any of the Climax Heroes Wii games.

No, UV's are there. I mean, it could be a little problematic to parse them for each mesh part.

Wait, why did I say that earlier? What I meant to say was "If it helps with finding the UV mapping". Eh, doesn't matter.

Where in particular are the UV offsets stored in the file, so I can learn about the format some more? I'm still kinda new at this, after all.

UV's stored at the end of the file, it's a big section of data you can't miss it - it starts with ffff then 4 bytes of uv's values (uv's stored as half-floats) Here's pic there's offset to UV's stored in this sample file, the only file I have:)

Aaaah, I see now. Didn't think they'd be stored as half-float values, no wonder I didn't spot them. Thanks!

Yeah, I see what you mean about the UV mapping. Still, it's a learning experience figuring it out.

I ended up getting caught up in other things, so no progress was made from me at least.

Only a Few are UV Wise (like OOO and Eternal)
(they are actually more closer to the Gambaride Arcade game (Witch i hope get dumped one day)


But sadly Wizard is not complete in Super Climax Heroes (Missing Water and Land Dragon Plus All-dragon) and Beast is included to the Roster(I have the Infinity Style & Hyper Beast files too if anyone wants them)

I'd Really like to have the Models form this!
