We CAN export models from RD (no import)

Postby Darkmil » Tue 28 Feb 2017 17:21

WIP POST
Required software :
  • Ninja ripper : The software responsible for the magic
  • Noesis with the Ninja ripper plugin : A software to convert and preview the 3D models extracted
  • Blender 3D : The software you will use to have a quick preview of your texture, or even paint directly on the model.
  • The Wargame Modding Suite : The great software that will enable you to extract the game texture
  • A software allowing you to convert a DDS file to a PNG or another more usable format.

What does ninja ripper do ?
Ninja ripper is basicly ripping off the models, not from the game but from the VRAM.
Using it is fairly straight forward, just press F10 when you have loaded the unit that interest you (preferably in the armory)

Using Noesis
Launch Noesis, with it browse your Wargame Red Dragon install folder and go in the

Code: Select all

_NinjaRipper
folder. And in it browse until you find the .rip files.
The biggest .rip file corresponds to the armory model. The unit model is most likely smaller and most of the time smaller than 2.5 MB (that will simplify your search). You will find several file with the same size corresponding to the unit. Find one of those which have "damaged texture". Then export the file in .obj (of course giving it a relevant name and putting it in a relevant folder).

In blender.
Blender will allow a much quicker overview of your work (if not a real time overview using blender workflow)

Made an account on here to ask, what did you use to get a proper UV map that aligned with the texture from the rip, or did you manually do all of that?

What dors this mean? Can we now use such models in other games?

Is there hope that one day we could modify those models and then put them into Wargame again?

Yeah you certainly could use the models elsewhere, they're low poly and the textures are low resolution though, considering what they're used for.

My issue is that I can only use the textures from the game by manually cutting them up to match the UV map from unwrapping the model.
