For another gmod model porting project I am attempting to rip the models off a particular PS2 game.
The first thing I read into and attempted was this.
Unfortunately all the differnt steps you could take were incompatible with the .RES files which contained everything in the game.
The second attempt was legally setting up PCSX2 and then using 3D Ripper DX however it appears that 3D Ripper does not look at the game but instead the PS2 emulator which is a DirectX application (or I’m not properly configuring something). So that does not work either. I have heard a rumor that an older version (0.9.2 did apparently work but I can not locate the older version.)
There is a third thing I can do but it’s the dirtiest thing out there and very time consuming. It involves ripping the models by getting the model by taking a snapshot of the same object at different angles, then extruding out the model Z-wise because the z buffer data will be lost.
