Re: I got bored...

While games like Battlefield export from the modeling app. to a binary format for the engine, this doesn't allow the artist to make manual edits before conversion, which reduce turn around time when trying to fix problems.

Besides, the model format can be used in other ways like promotional material.

Re: I got bored...

If it would still blow apart like it does now.

Some ascii format used in 3D studio max or Maya would be good.

If you did that i would like to be able to use long names although the 3DE exporter can't use them, we would need a better exporter.

Re: I got bored...

Could make a texture override pack for the models if Ken added code similar to what Tug and I did in BzE. In the odf i override the models default skin with these: baseName = "avfigh" TextureLod1 = "bvraz00.map" //Lod1 = Main object skin TextureLod2 = "avcpit01.map" //Lod2 = Cockpit texture TextureL...

Re: I got bored...

Are you going to be making any tools with the Bz formats now?

These all look good, the more red fighter i wonder how a white star would look on the top fin.

Re: A few problems and questions about 1.5

Re: A few problems and questions about 1.5

Could the localization stuff all be in the same version if the "names0*.map" are nolonger needed?
The ingame text is currently sprites, if changed, would the text scale with the resolution?

Re: the Battlezone Franchise was sold to Rebellion Interacti

apollo, how/why do you have access to the code? Dx/Apollo has had access to the BZ 1.3 source code for years. It's what BZE is based on. Infact there are two versions of the Bz engine, the first came from Ken and was incomplete (working copy between 1.1 - 1.3 about 9 files missing, no network updat...

Re: the Battlezone Franchise was sold to Rebellion Interacti

Ken can correct me if i'm wrong but i see very little MW2 code and most of it is disabled, the I76 code is more of the engine with the renderer, sound code, part of the loader, game related code and network replaced. This is not complete but as for I76 it's mostly engine code, and not much of the ga...

Re: De-coding BZ Source code, its possible?

I had the impression that the program had a long way to go before it could be usefull, i don't recall the name of it.
I found it by searching google for reverse engineering programs. But that was many years ago, could be a much better version by now.

Re: De-coding BZ Source code, its possible?

I used a program to to reverse engineer TRO, it produced C++ code but nothing like the original code nor was it usable.
