This program can view/export: CHRs (3d models), PAK files (contain level backgrounds), SPR (sprites), RAW (some images like the map) and SMK videos :)

Thanks, finishing it up will upload soon.
There's no button but ctrl-S exports to obj so no worries ^^, one thing though their format is very unconventional and doesn't really use bones so no bones unfortunately :(

And here it is: https://silvie.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/silvie.jar :D :D

You need Java8 which you can get from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... 33155.html
and Java3D from https://java3d.java.net/binary-builds.html

Project page: https://code.google.com/p/silvie/
Code is under GPLv3 so anyone can modify it.



EDIT: new project URL (no Java required) : https://github.com/othias/silvie

Okay, I just tested it myself on windows and if anyone's interested, run it that way to be able to view the CHRs:

Code: Select all

java -Djava.library.path=<path to java3d dll> -jar silvie.jar

Like I said in an earlier post, code is under gplv3 on the project's github https://github.com/nerdouille/silvie (just moved)

My knowledge of java is by no means perfect so if you want to improve stuff you're perfectly welcome :D

Not that it has anything to do with 3d models but I've reversed the dialog files aswell (view+export as .txt) :p

Hello

first of all sorry for necroposting, i know this thread is 1 year old, but finally i found what i was looking for. I always wanted to export some of the models, sprites, and images of this game. Unfortunatley i didnt undestand how to do so. My knowlege of coding is below 0. There is a chance you can make an .exe file for windows? Or explain how to make the program work with a step by step giude?

Thank you


P.S. Nice work, you made one of my dream come true! :)

Java is required and you need to install Java3D in case you didn't so far from https://java3d.java.net/binary-builds.html
You need nerdyluke's silvie.jar, then in windows console enter
java -Djava.library.path=<path to j3dcore-ogl.dll> -jar silvie.jar

where you must replace <...> by D:\Java3D\bin for example.

D:\JAVA3D is MY path, so your's will be different. (And don't enter the <>. :D )

(For 64-bit windows j3d-1_5_2-windows-amd64.zip is required, even for intel processors.)

well, I see, nerdyluke explained most of this before.

Seems you didn't READ this thread, did you? :D

I am currently in the process of rewriting it entirely in C with clear struct definitions for each format for future reference, should be done in a week or two. I have also managed to get nodes working properly for models, which means animations are now possible! The new tool exports models to .3ds so you can open them in the free version of 3ds max 5 from discreet. Also there will only be a single statically linked executable so no more java hassle.
