Tool for DAI individual morphs.

It will allow you to extract about 400+ morphs for each type of face.
All kind of face parameters, like eyes/ears/nose size/position etc etc will be there.
Works same as DAI morph tool, just instead of .morphresource, 3rd parameter is .morphtarget resource. For example:

Fb_DAI_morphtarget.exe mt_basa_hf.meshset hf_skeleton.ebx humanfemaletargets.MorphTargetsResource

Many morphs require bone moving (which changes the mesh shape). To do this, you have to apply the small _ani.smd file to the morphed mesh.

Hey guys, I'm a noob when it comes to hex and 3d mesh stuff but I'm trying to figure out how I can locate and edit the positional data in the .res as for fifa 19 it seems to be inline with the .res and not in the chunk. If anyone knows how to do this please send me a pm to discuss further. Cheers

Hi everyone,

Im trying to extract the annihilator model from bf1. I believe ive done eveything correctly, i'll explain: Extracted the game files with the tool UFBE, put the "working" folder in order with the "chunks" folder in it with all the chunks, the Fb_BF1_mesh.exe, the 3pantskeleton.ebx and the thompson files. When i try to drag the meshset file from any of the thompsons (annhilator or m1919) to the exe, a 24kb smd appears which is empty and gives an error when imported to blender or max, no ascii file.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot mono, it happens i got to know that tool just before checking the thread by a guy who told me about it through steam. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how to get the animations to 3ds max, well, in a readable format... i suppose they are contained in those ebx files.

Thanks for the quick answer!

EBXs are not animations or meshes or sounds or any other assets, they are binary files that link assets files to their required chunk actual data.
And no, animations are not supported and wont be any time soon, a lot of research has been made by quite a few people in the past just nothing has been ever published, that I know of.
As usual time will tell what will surface.

I've been following Mono24's post on pg 28 regarding extracting DAI morphs. I think I am having an issue with creating the text/cmd file.

I keep getting this error -
cmdError.png
Sorry for the poor quality.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

******
edit : Okay I just realized that all the files I extracted are 0kb. I remember seeing someone have the same problem so I'll go back and look for that solution.

Retrace your steps, closely, you'll get there, the CMD looks ok though.

Hmm, wait a minute, weren't you the one who asked about the script required for extraction of DAI?
Looks like its gone, DAI requires a specific script that only works with DAI and no other frostbite game, you might have corrupted files if you used something else?

Well I used this script here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVUv_L7m4g8

It was linked from another thread and the only one that actually worked. But now I just noticed all the files are 0kb

Everything works great now.

Would you happen to know what file holds the ani.smd file for a custom inquisitor? I've tried several but the result is just the default.
