The first thread went a little out of control, so I have started v2 of the Transformers thread. I will update this with new info and bring back some of the useful old info form the last one so that I won’t refer to it back and forth and keep it all here. I am also looking for supporters who are willing to put in some time in getting characters from certain games. As of 7/31/17: I have this banner to track progress on any Transformers character or characters being worked on in SFM. The next one could be a surprise. DO NOT ASK ME TO DO REQUESTS. WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET.
so have the Prime models actually been extracted or not? If so, maybe they’d be easier to put together and rig for Source than FoC proved to be? I’m not seeing anything regarding Transformers Prime in the links you provided.
have you got the files from him already so i don’t have to bother? i don’t like the fact that he’s forcing people to subscribe to get the files. It’s not like they’re models he made… they’re ripped from a game. So if you already got the goods from him you should just post them here so people can see what they can do with them.
As of now, I’m waiting for a reply from the guy who got them extracted to email the files to me. Don’t hold your breath just yet. If he’s just holding on to them for his with the exception of GMawesome I’m gonna be pissed.
You know, you COULD just get the download links from the video descriptions instead of waiting for a response. He provided the links to download the models so that people could do what they want with them. I just tested the download links for both of those videos you posted, and they’re still working just fine.
Got them working. Now all I need to do now is somehow open them up in Max or some other program and take a look. Once I get a good look at ALL of them…ehhh, give them to someone to work with? Again, no expertie at portie thing.
Well I had a look at the files for both FoC and Dotm, I would like to point out a major gripe of mine: NO WEAPONS. It’s one of those things that you need to have something to go with them, but in this case, they have nothing going for them except their vehicle forms. Like buying a figure that has no gun accessory. Here are other issues I found:
The FoC models like in the video have no color, which means you would have to apply color to ALL OF THEM.
FoC files is missing FoC Megatron, but it does have WfC Megatron from chapter 2.
Dotm has no cannon fodder soldiers except for the Enforcer Decepticon aka one of The Dreads from the film.
Dotm textures look low-grade, but I don’t expect anything more coming from a movie game.
This is as much as I can do for now, anyone like to have a go at them?
Huh? we already know all these things about the DOTM and FoC files. Went over all this in the previous thread. Hence the idea of porting anything from FoC has been abandoned.
I thought we moved on to ‘Prime’ models? We need those files. If we get those I will do w/e it takes to get them rigged up in blender and ported to Source. At this point i’m thinking about just buying the Wii U game and seeing if I can rip them myself. Then again… I just read a reply from rroobboo on youtube (the guy that ripped DOTM and FoC files) and he is saying there are no tools for ripping from the Prime game.
well according to this thread I found on Xentax, The regular Wii version can’t be ripped:
I don’t know if that’s just with that specific tool that person is trying to use though, and I also do not know if the Wii U version uses a different format that perhaps can be ripped from. But somehow that guy on youtube has the Prime models in his dance video… he had to have got them from somewhere…
I really want to get the Prime models mainly because a lot of people really like that show so it has a lot of interest right now. I think machinimas made with those models would be a lot better received. I am getting some criticism from people within the transformers communities for using Michael Bays models in my short movie I just finished.
Bad news is that all I have from the Decepticons is a Tank Vehicon. kaxblastard from Da didn’t give the rest of the Decepticons to me because “I will only release them if I could have a practical use for them”. Ain’t that a bunch of bull.
Tank Vehicon is in the link with Team Prime.
Also, wow. You got flak from using Michael Bay’s Transformers? That’s kind of harsh. I don’t really mind the designs for some of them like Optimus, but Megatron got uglier as the movies continued.
