[NOESIS] Dragon Nest, help needed

Hi guys! I talked to the guy who made the Dragon nest model viewer and got the file format for this game. It includes model, texture, bones and animation, in otherwise full file format. I started creating a noesis python script but got stuck and Chrrox has helped me....ALOT to intepret and understand. But I am totally stuck so I present what I have now and hopefully the community can help to build it on :)

In the provided zip file there is:

dragon nest.py
+model
+texture
+anim file

I was able to make noesis count bones, show the model without texture and....yes, that is about it :)

Oops, forgot the file format source so here it is on pastebin, and comments in code is chinese but maybe understand with google translate:

Call rapi.rpgSetMaterial before you commit the triangles.
Then the texture should be applied to those faces.

Your normals and UV's might be a little weird because of how you are calling the functions.

The chinese characters are all messed up in pastebin.
Maybe you can post it somewhere else or just upload it?

Code: Select all

numVerts, numIdx, unk, renderMode
There are two "render modes" as the spec says. One of them (when it's 1 or 257) requires you to commit triangles using TRIANGLE_STRIP, the other (when it's 0) with TRIANGLE.

There are two msh types; one with bones/weights and the other doesn't. I don't know when this would be checked.

I also don't know how to find the correct texture. Maybe I'm actually just missing textures.
But other than that it gets the geometry.

There are also some weird structs after the vertex section sometimes. I'm not sure what they are, or when they occur.

There are some files where you have

Code: Select all

int count
count {
   char[256] name
}
I'm not too sure when it occurs

But, you can use it for reference if you want. I probably just have to see what patterns those unknowns are.

You need to export those anims to something readable in 3DS Max, normally to the format of the model (normally fbx).

I tried every Dragon Nest‘s tools, but there's no one can convert anim files successful.

Does that apply to this one, too?
http://www.dnmodz.com/guides/msh-converter/

Brief: "You can choose a msh file,as well as its animation file(*.ani) that you can finish a
msh-to-fbx conversion."

(If it doesn't work you should upload an ani sample because noone can help without it.)

thx.
This is the skeleton. I'm unsure whether Bip01 is a dummy.
If so there should be a direct connection between Pelvis and Spine.

Hello

Here is blender importer for models from this game.
It works only with Blender version 249 and Python version 2.6


It import skinned and textured meshes with animations.

-select *.skn files for importing meshes
-select *.ani files for unpacking animations
-after unpacking *.ani files select *.anim files for animation

For Noesis use fbx blender exporter.
