Yes but didn't you say the materials were .mat files? Anyway I'll try looking deeper in the files when I have more time.

Yes, but I mean that the Mat file, that is referenced in the App file, probably indicates which texture to use on the model. That texture is just an image stored as .tex file, an that .tex file can be converted to dds file by this tool

Hope I make any sence?

Greetings,

I've downloaded the D3Appconverter of TaylorMouse, and downloaded the client of the Beta.

How can I get models with textures (which I can load to a 3d Framework like Away3D or Alternativa3D)?

Thanks for your help!

BR,

1. Download the MPQ extractor
2. Extract all app files from the archive into a folder, exaple in the c:\temp\extracted\, just make sure the files are all put into this folder
3. Download my app and put it in the c:\temp\extracted\ folder
4. Open a cmd window and browse to the c:\temp\extracted\ folder
5. Run the following command : ( this can take up to 40 minutes )

Code: Select all

D3Appconverter.exe -d "c:\temp\extracted\"
6. Download the D3TexConv.exe
7. Extract the tex files with the MPQ extractor
8. COnvert the tex files with the D3TexConv.exe to dds
9. Open up Max
10.Import the obj file that you want, open the material editor and find the matching texture

i tried that but it comes up saying

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Afrokid>D3AppConvert2Obj.exe -d "C:\Users\Afrokid\Desktop\Appearance"
'D3AppConvert2Obj.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Edit: after i posted this i realised it should of been

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Afrokid\Desktop\Appearance\D3AppConvert2Obj.exe -d "C:\Users\Afrokid\Desktop\Appearance"
working beautifully, thanks

Hi,

It's not working for me.

I've performed these steps:
1) I've made a folde C:\temp\extracted
2) I copied Adria.app and D3AppConvert2Obj.exe into this folder
3) I've run C:\temp\extracted\D3AppConvert2Obj.exe -d "C:\temp\extracted\"
No failure message, but nothing happens.
What did I do wrong?

Doesn't works for straight .obj > .max conversion :)
Atleast for 12' Design.
Requires some heavy conversion trixx :)

If you import an .obj from your app straight into Studio or even DE, verticles are calculated incorrectly, well atleast for me.
For me it worked with Blender > Studio combo, so i had to import model into Blender first and than export it to Autodesk FBX so all verticles are calculated correctly and all UVMapping are correct (.obj > blender > .obj > studio does work)
The only working combo i found for myself is .obj > Blender > .fbx > Studio > .obj > My Render Engine :P

Insane,

I didn't know if I should start a new thread, or resurrect this old one, but anyways; The retail version of Diablo 3 .tex files cannot seem to be opened by D3TexConv_v0.9:

I get "Invalid Texture or Surface (SNO Header Mismatch)"

Is anyone working on a new Diablo 3 .tex texture converter? PM me as required, thanks.

Actually, it still works.

Just open the .tex file using a Hex Editor, you should see (ï¾.Þ-) just change it to (ï¾.Þ+).
Their values in Hex are (EF BE AD DE 2D) to (EF BE AD DE 2B).
