The game’s final shutdown date was just announced, which made me think back to this comical, kinda-crappy F2P game using the Battlefield 2 engine.
I attempted to rip the models a good while back using this, but unfortunately it doesn’t (didn’t?) seem to include bones or rigging. This was bad for two reasons - the vehicle’s initial poses were kind of awkward (a boat’s wheel shoved through it’s floor, for example) and frankly, I’m absolute arse at rigging.
I know folks have ripped things from BF2 and BF Free2Play (same engine) in the past, so I’m hoping for someone to either drop tons of knowledge on Doing It Right, or to Do It Better than I possibly could. This stuff, especially the vehicles would be nice to have for TF2-themed images and animations, since they can fit into the style reasonably well, give or take a quick retexture.
Any ideas or suggestions?
