hex2obj giving vertex count that is too high?

Post by kgal104 » Mon Oct 19, 2020 10:42 pm

So I have been successfully extracting multiple models from pinshape and their .bingeom files. However, I have one file I cant seem to properly extract. It is the first file on this page: ... ns-upgrade which gives the following hex file: ... e1.bingeom
However, running this through hex2obj using the method that has worked thus far gives the following result
The vertex count is clearly too high, but I cannot seem to determine why that is. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Hi kgal104,

the face indices are bytes for the file you posted which hex2obj doesn't support. (maximum face index=182 -> vertexcount )

You may try out the tools from Bigchillghost or Lazov which should have that option.

Here*s the obj file with "manually" created face indices:
