Hi folks, I'm trying to make Noesis script to import animation. I have achieved some success, but the animation still loaded not correctly. Maybe someone knows what's the problem?
(you need to put skeleton file [.pab] in animation folder)

Can't check it because I don't have paa files.

You could check the python script for blender from Marisuz
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11849&hilit=.paa
and compare the results with yours.

Unfortunately the result is very different.

I used shorts divided by 65535 instead of half floats and the walking anim looks better (a little bit like a spider :D , but it walks).

Is anyone able to upload the armor files? I don't have the game, and would really, really appreciate it if someone could!

Thank you if anyone responds!

Szkaraddek, Thanks for the scripts. I am able to import PAC and PAB files. However no luck so far with PAM (static object files)....after running the script nothing is loaded and I am not able to see any thing in the console either. Trying to extract some props and assets...

Any advise?

Here is an animation importer for models from this game.
It requires Blender version 249 and Python 26.
I used chrrox script for Noesis viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10909 and ArthainBaka file format research .

Steps:
1.unpack importer
2.run Blender249.blend
3.in Blender Text Window press alt+p and select:
-pac file - for importing a skinned mesh
-pab file - for importing a skeleton
-paa file - for importing an animation
-pam file - for importing static objects

Updated 2015-01-10:
-added pam importer

Updated 2015-01-06:
- added new animation importer

Hopefully someone can advise how to import animation files properly.

I'm using blender 2.49b and python 26, using the script from Szkaradek123 I can import pac and pab files and all looks ok but when importing paa files I end up with a broken mesh that looks more like a spider than a human.

Am importing phw_00_nude_0001_noalpha.pac, the associated pab file and phw_00_00_stand_idle_00.paa but end up with this:

Anyone know how to solve this?

Same issue here...Anyone who has already successfuylly imported PAA animation, can you pls help.

Able to import PAC and associated PAB file. Both look scaled to same size. However loading any of the animation (PAA) associated with the PAB results in the armature getting deformed badly :-(

Seems it's a matter of the blend-file version.
I used the files you sent me:
phw_00_nude_0001_noalpha.pac
phw_01.pab

phw_06_01_stand_idle_00.paa
phw_04_01_move_run_r_00.paa

with Blender249.blend as of 3.1.2015 (3rd January) and all works fine
(apart from some oddities with the blender timeline window where the Play/Stop button had to be pressed several times)
