NFS No Limits

Post by Ferrari formula 1 » Wed Jan 07, 2015 2:12 pm

Hello there! :)
NFS no limits was released not long ago for IOS and I already have downloaded all the files.
Can you help me to get the stuff out?

The models are in .M3G format,which looks kinda like Real Racing 3 (EA title too) and the textures have .SBA expansion
*By the way,some textures can be opened in Dragon Unpacker 5 and they are PNG's*
The game has some awesome cars with extreme tuning parts,so it would be awesome to get acsess to them :)
Also,the game uses "ISIS" engine

Here are the example files :wink:

The year was 2015,we were using 256x256 textures

I looked into it last night. Files are gzipped with what looks like a small custom header.

I didn't know Real Racing uses m3g as well, maybe it's the same format.

EDIT: I checked, it's not the same.
Real Racing 3 uses the old Java Mobile 3D Graphics API version 1, a format which is well known and documented.
No Limits uses either a custom derivative of the format, or the API version 2, of which I couldn't find any format specifications. It's also listed as "Dormant" on the Java website.
Please post any requests or issues with my tools in the appropriate topics.
I'm sorry if I don't reply or if I ignore PMs. My time is very limited.

Hmmm,I thought it will be the same,because games were made by the same studio :)
So,any chance we can get the models?

I only looked at it briefly, so "don't quote me on that" as they say :)

I was wondering to see some skins,like legendary "M3" skin,but I found a new folder with textures,in .SBA format
They are duplicates of others,but can't be opened in Dragon Unpacker 5

Strange,but i still can't find skins

Folder "published.texture_pvrtc" holds texture files,which can't be opened with Dragon Unpacker 5,and they seem to be the main game textures.

Faces are fine, at least for cars

@Ferrari there are also some textures embedded in m3g files.

To be continued tomorrow, good night!

Great work! Keep It up! 8D

After analyzing some screenshots,I'm sure that cars have LOD's

In garage you can see the most detailed LOD 0 and In race,I beleive,LOD 1,because screenshots show me different details and every car in the game has separate LOD 0 model

This is epic! 8D

As I can see,the car is split in dozen parts,and @Chipicao has automatized the import process(?)
So,I don't know how this stuff works,but is there a way to automaticaly place parts at their positions?
(Or should we do this by hands?)

And if I'm right,the only thing missing now is UV's and normals? [roll]

Would be amazing if you can find time and make a script\tool foor theese beautiful cars :)

Everything is fine once you use the correct vertex bias and scale:

Assigning groups will probably put everything together even better.

UVs and normals are not missing, they are there and will be correctly loaded when everything else is ready. This is what's called a testing stage, you can;t expect to have everything in one go.

Because of required decompression (and other small things I've considered) I will not be making a MAXscript, but a FBX converter instead, similar to what I've done for Asphalt 8.

Yes, all LODs and all body kits will be imported with full hierarchy:
