Without the ability to get every file out our ability to access the files with the importer are extremely low (Also if anyone can extract any vehicle model I think they could still be labeled VCxxx.mlx [xxx is the code they use to identify the vehicle])

We need a proper CPK viewer or a program like 7zip that can open these files like a zip file

Maybe we should make a Discord so we can all have an easier time conversing, I'll make one


https://discord.gg/syHyt2R
Anyone is welcome to it, but I would like us all to use it to discuss Valkyria_Import and what else to do

Gomtuu and Very Cool Dude I recommend you join me in the discord so we can chat easier about this stuff

Unless Discord is some sort of taboo...?

Just a quick update on this for anybody curious - I've figured out how to open the CPK files fully and have sent some things to gomtuu. Use YACpkTool to export everything in the CPK files properly.

The invite link expired. And how sad that discord is even taking people away from good old Xentax!

Just took my first look at some files from Valkyria Chronicles 4.

Judging from the textures, vl_vc001.mlx is the Hafen and vl_vc002.mlx is the Cactus. I think the "vc" part of the filename is short for vehicle. This is similar to the naming convention used in the first game, where the val_vc*.mlx files are vehicles.

The textures are still DDS files like in the first game, but Blender seems unable to open some of them. The ones it can't open have the string "DX10" in their headers.

It'll take some more work to figure out the differences in the model data.

DX10 could have something to do with DirectX :thinking:

Hello,

I am a papercraft artist interested in making VC4 stuff, here's a sample of the level of detail I can do https://youtu.be/1DJMFot1xLc. I would love to join the Discord channel to follow the progress on the importer, do some testing and maybe help a bit, I've been working professionally with Blender for two years, I'm a decent programmer and the world needs those swimwear models. Pweez let me in guys.

Version 0.8 of import_valkyria is out! This version adds support for many (not all) model files from Valkyria Chronicles 4.

It also improves support for objects positioned by bones, so lots of models from the first game will import more accurately now, too. That's thanks to a contribution from angavrilov.

Please see the README and especially the Valkyria Chronices 4 Textures wiki page for important information. I also created a List of Valkyria Chronicles 4 Models that you may find helpful.

There are still lots of issues, but after such a long delay, I was starting to feel like it would be better to release a mostly-working version than to make everyone wait while I ironed everything out.

Enjoy!

Can a moderator please update the topic to "Valkyria Chronicles 1 & 4 (Multiple Platforms)" or just "Valkyria Chronicles 1 & 4"? Thanks!
