    Hi again!

    I want to know, that how can I extract MODEL files from Wii ISO-s, maybe with WiiScrubber, and convert them to any of the popular 3d filetypes (3ds would be the best). And please tell me what should I do this time precisely...
    Please if there's anyone out there who can help with this, please reply to this topic =P And please don't lock this topic after sending a nonsense answer, or at least tell me who may know such stuff...

    It's different for every game. If you didnt know that, I don't think you'll have the expertise to use the tools. Though, I'll tell you anyway (For Brawl). If you have Windows, install a temp version of linux (Like on a VMWare server, I suggest Ubuntu). GCC is probably included, so then head on over to this post to get the full details of what I am about to explain. If that post is tl:dr, it just says to install the FBX SDK (URL on the linked post) and then edit and run the makefile included in his release source code.

    The texture swap guys are doing just that - swapping the textures, and they have only said vaguely how to do it (using hex editing and converting). Not extracting any 3D models.

    There was a thread about a secret tool made by some locked down forum, but it only worked on the trophies (or something).

    There are different types of 3D model in wii games and they all require different ways of extracting them... and not all of them can be easily done by anyone [​IMG]

    If you want models then there are GC ones (I have the ones from Double Dash - including Luigi [​IMG] ) - They are what I used to make my paper models [​IMG]

    The Windows link you saw was probably just the executable for the SDK required to compile the .exe version (Which isn't out yet last I checked because some other parts of the code needed to be modified for the Windows ver). I just cannot explain all the steps to temporarily installed Linux and build and compile this program because it would just be waaaay to much info to write down. If you still want to do it, there should be tutorials for each step that I listed (Google would help you there), but I am guessing it would takes days for it to work in the end.

    I'm sorry to say that the last time I tried to extract Luigi, it came up with an error message. Until I learn data structures and 3d model file formats, I don't see progress on this extractor being done anytime soon (Sabretooth seems to have ditched the project).

    Sorry I couldn't be more help in the end. Good luck w/ finding a working extractor

    Yeah, I guess you're right... I'll go and see some screens of games including Luigi and download the best... But Luigi in his brawl suit is just so cool xD And a bit more smoothed I think than in GC versions... (I'm affraid 3ds max will do it badly :S) I'll give it a go, but if there's anyone who have some Luigi models ripped from any Wii games, please IM me [​IMG]

    ANd please, if you want to help me, please at least give me a link or a quote of the post you're trying to explain...

    I mean this in the nicest possible way so please don't get mad. By even asking the question you pretty much proved to all of us that you don't have the experience necessary to do it. EVERYONE who knows anything about modern video games knows that model formats for different games are different (i.e. there's NO standard) and often proprietary (it takes manual hacking, or if you are lucky a fan-made tool to extract them). With that being said, you could still be able to figure it out BUT, by saying you had never heard of VMware, it basically means you've never heard of linux or networking tools, or "virtual computing", and therefore have very little computer experience. Also because you can't find a thread in this very forum, that's almost always on the front page due to frequent updates, it shows us you either and unwilling, or unable to figure out things on your own. You need to be willing to work hard to get at game data.

    So no, nobody is calling you stupid/untalented/ect by any means, but what were are saying is you simply aren't familiar with computers, 3d modeling, and general hacking, to made use of any info we've given you.

    3: AGAIN HOW DO YOU KNOW I'M uNFAMILIAR WITH 3D MODELING?????!!! TELL ME!!!!! IF I DIDN'T KNEW ABOUT THIS DIFFERENT GAME DIFFERENT FORMAT STUFF, THAT ONLY MEANS I'M NOT A HACKER AND NOT THAT I'M A TOTAL NOOB YOU IDIOT...!!!!
    4: I NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THAT I CAN DO IT, I JUST ASKED HOW, TO SEE HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE...
    5: YOU'RE SIMPLY SAYING THAT I'M AN UNTALANTED BRAT WHO JUST WHINES FOR EVERYTHING, I HAVEN'T BEEN ANGRY TILL NOW O ANY OF MY POSTS BEFORE, BUT YOU MADE MY DAY!!!!

    I don't know the "american way" but that dosn't sounded nice in any ways....
    I Thanked for the help, said I'll use GC games that I can deal with, and that Volkov came back to whine i'm stupid i could find stuff, that i said i found but didn't find useful.... And then HowardC comes from nowhere and starts talking dump.... I know you hate noobs and stuff... for a really unknow reason, somewhen you were one of us... but please don't post just for showing off your typing skills... Thank you...

    hate noobs? have you noticed that almost every questioning topic that gets opened is answered usually within minutes, with detailed help, and im usually doing the same where I can..

    way to have a fit over nothing though...I wasn't whining, just trying to make the "why should you have everything handed to you" point, when i said there was a valid topic going around and to what? what did i say? message the guys running it because they seem to of had an idea on something similar to what you want to do...

    but again, described by someone else, it is very different for each game. Maybe you should browse the content of the disc and see what you can find if you're so "experienced with 3D modelling"

    good luck, man!

    I see I need to say it again [​IMG]

    The people doing the TEXTURE hack are NOT extracting the MODELS, they are extracting TEXTURES.

    If you want the models, either work out how to do it yourself (not easy, but someone has to), or try somewhere else. Or use a different method to get models of the characters you want.
