Anyway, as you know, REDEYE was working on a script for Blender. I wonder if he is continuing or if he has abandoned the project.

I know that he worked on a Blender tool, cause.. we worked more or less together on this project... but it isn't done so far "sadly"..

Since there's not much demand for this obscure engine, first version only supports dinosaurs. But technically it must be possible to get anything from any game on this engine, because i already reversed the base of its data formats. I think even this tool MAY work with other games.

Tool usage:

drop .OVL file onto the tool.
ovs.textures_... files must be in the same dir if you want textures exported too.
Exported files will be in new ASCII format that supports bone rotations (as you may know).
Also OBJ file and SMD skeleton will be created.

Can anybody please point me how to extract animations, I am a noob but passionate to learn.

Thank you

So I've extracted the ovl files with the tool and have the textures, but Noesis can't open them nor can a dds converter convert them. Anyone have a way to get the textures on the model so I can see them? It seems very convoluted.

textures are standard DDS, they work with ANY texture tools or editors

Ah, yes you're right. Noesis couldn't do it since I hadn't downloaded the update.

Now, if you had finalized the program so that it would extract and animation, it would be very cool. And now the skeleton that is extracted with the models is absolutely useless. It can benefit only professional animators. I hope you will hear me, and make it so that the animations are extracted, too.

Your so wrong on so many levels I don't even know where to begin, a static character mesh with out its original skeleton might be considered useless, maybe, because it would require someone to create another from scratch in its desired 3D software, and it would never match original skeleton with original weights and all data, but once you have original skeleton its golden, pure perfection I might add, be thankful it exists already and fully reversed.

Wrong, wrong, wrong even the most noob/beginner can pose an original skeletal mesh, these models are NOT limited to a pro only, anyone can use it and pose/animate it how ever they see fit like any other skeletal mesh.
Just because the tool does NOT export in-game animations to a known format its another story, they are NOT easy to reverse, animations in general take weeks/months of intense hard reversing depending on the format/engine.

I understand that it is difficult. But it would be good, because in this game there are great animations. And yet the animator from me no. That's why I ask someone to do extrator animations.

But i need a bit of help, i can't quite understand what is happening in your tool

Thouse numXX are driving me nuts.
That might be reflector decompiled variables names wrong or you actually named them numXX?
Anyways, can you DM me source code or just explain what happaning in your tool?
How to use your utility?? I dont know((

sorry i'm not accepting donations
there are many other, much more interesting animation engines waiting for me to support them, like Horizon zero dawn, Quantum break and all frostbite games
So you still will not remove the animation? It is a pity((, please make at least a tutorial on creating such programs for extracting ovl files. To be able to do it yourself.

If you think you can do it yourself, you don't need a tutorial.

Animations is the hardest task in game reversing. If you think you can do such things, you must be very good coder and reverse engineer. Such people don't need tutorials.

Firephoenix1342, so you're at least able to extract/import models like vehicles and so on?
