There's a few animations for this model too.
I only see one animation, in the di folder.

Also, N_ZZ160 can be viewed in 0.4, but not in 0.52 of yaz0r's model viewer.

Will look into that. But I think I already know the issue.
There is in fact two animation formats in KH2, the usual IK based animation system, and a secondary "raw" animation system. While the raw is probably simpler than the first one, my code doesn't support it (yet?). Since the viewer will try to display the first animation it finds, it will usually crash when that first animation is in raw format.
There is a flag in the animation header to tell if it is raw or not, and the plan right now is to just ignore animations with this flag set, probably in next version...

Just wanted to say that was pretty interesting to read. I don't know anything about file formats, but I know a bit about animation. Thanks for sharing and all your hard work with your viewer and whatnot!

I would add that contrary to popular belief, I don't exactly know all the details of the kh2 animation engine. The animations in the viewer works with a mixture of reverse engineered code, statically recompiled code from the original exe, and completely emulated code from the original exe. This is the same approach that I used on kh1 animations and that kkdf2 used too (I used some of the notes kkdf2 made on kh2 to implement my version).

Wow, that's kind of more impressive that you and kkf2 were able to make viewers for an animation format that you didn't have all the components to though.

But that also means they don't fully understand the format. They just understand it much better than anyone else, except Square Enix, meaning it would be that much harder to make a mset plugin/converter.

Probably a noob question, but is there a map dumper for a regular version of KHII? The only one I found is for FM+...

This is probably an equally noobish response, but you could try copying your .idx file from the KH2 dvd, and replacing that with the .idx file Falo provides (I'd back up his .idx though). Falo's is a combined .idx file. Then, you can experiment with the nametablebl.txt and see if you can find the file path for the maps from the english version (map/jp/po05.map). I don't know if that would work though, I'm not sure how falo's exe works to dump the files even with the nametable. kkdf2 also wrote a program that lets you dump a file if you know the filename, so even if you don't have the filepath, if the filenames are the same, that could work.

This is all speculation on my part. No clue if anything I suggested actually works. lol

Since this topic is still up now, I'd like to point out that I have a much more comprehensive list of undiscovered animations, and if anyone's interested I'll release the latest list. Although, with Xeeynamo's new KH2 extractor coming out soon, I may not be able to find anything his won't, so look out for that.

I dunno if this is the appropriate topic, but I think I've figured out how to get transparency working with the KH2 plugin for Noesis. Seems to be something to do with the "default blend" setting; for reference, I've used Selphie (pay attention to her hair).

Without default blend: Image

Now, with default blend turned on: Image


See the difference? Now if only I could write code (I barely know HTML >_>; ), I'd try to figure out how to enable blending by default for the plugin.

The KH2DumperX didn't extract any map files for me, so I guess it's still Falo's or yaz0r's dumper for them. Also, does anybody know which image format the .imd files in the itempic folder are?
