Hi,Guys!! Please,tell me anybody is there any way to extract the high resolution textures? I need PeeBee Face textures, the plugin extract textures in 512x256 resolution. How can I increase them?


no and resize (long answer: textures get cooked, that means they get reduced in size when shipped as final game, the rest is just meta data)

Sorry in advance, and sorry to be that guy again, and maybe I'm just misunderstanding something, I know I have seen this come up ALOT in this thread and i didn't want to bring it up again, but the high resolution textures are actually in the files somewhere, when i rip the textures from the game using ninja ripper I do actually get full 4k resolution textures for things such as Peebees face, and body, along with all the other characters, files that i can only find as 256 or 512px using the tool. And I do mean full 4k, All the detail is there, its not just some rescaled 512px image. Sorry that I can't offer any help for a solution to this, I know this doesn't help, this tool is still fantastic and you have done amazing work with it. Maybe I'm just getting this all wrong, I am no coder, but i mean the files have to be there somewhere as i'm getting them via another method, Maybe you can just just tell people to do it like this if you get sick of the same question over and over.

Sorry again.

stuff can also be loaded from online, also what do I KNOW? im a researcher, so if you find those files I will happily change my mind, but until then my answer is : no you cant, and cooking IS done, the dev build is way above 600GB (BF3 development server), so SOMEWHERE data has gotten to be removed. also you can do more than upscaling, shaders mean that stuff gets computed, sometimes even from texture assets to texture, but alot can also be "generated" on the fly, just some thoughts

This has been my experience as well. I've ripped high res 4k textures from the game but I've only found a few in the game files using the tool.

Also the 4k version of Peebee's head texture is at "ROOT/game/characters/asari/asa/0_heads/asa_hed_c_peebee/textures/asa_hed_c_peebee_diff" in the "ROOT/win32/game/characters/party/blueprintbundle_partymember_peebee" bundle but it shows as white in the preview because of the alpha channel.

well I never said there cant be an instance of a texture that actually has all LODs stored, but for the majority, even if they show higher LODs in the res data, the chunk still doesnt contain them

but I fixed the preview problem:

and also the FBX scale problem on export:

(maybe still not the RIGHT scale, 1000, but definitly visible!)

That's why I asked what you need icons for, if you want icons in the tree, they can't be bigger than 16x16 I guess. That will be a bit trickier and more work as well, so I can't just make a bunch like before and let you decide, but I rather need more specific info on what you have on your mind. What resources are you talking about? Textures, meshes, ebx files etc. ?

I understand that icons are really not the priority here so if you don't have time just ignore that and come back to me when you have some :lol:


you got pm and I used one icon in the maintool already (check "about"), use the tool and see what fits in your eyes for it, or ask around, im not the expert in GUI design here

I understand, it is true that is a huge 3D :roll: ;)
Thanks for your research and dev, i like your software :D

Maybe someone has an idea what I'm doing wrong. I'm trying to change new Sara and Scott textures from 1.06 patch to the old ones.
New texture works fine when extracted:
Image
But when I'm trying to extract texture from previous versions of the game, extracted texture only 256x256 in size :?

just read the posts before you on this very page, if the chunk doesnt have more data, I cant extract more data, maybe find the hires in another place

Hey lyutor1945,

You're in Luck, that's my next move :)
I already started to research the subject. Made some progress on the head morph already. If everything goes as planned planning-wise, i should be able to share something sometimes next week.

Hey WV,

Would you consider adding access to the guids dictionary through the plugin Host?
I will load it in the morph class I'm working on and I think it would make sense to access it using the Host like other data.

Of course, if/when you have Time and are willing. I can manage without that, it would just make code cleaner.

added ebxguid access to the plugin interface

Code:
public Dictionary<string, string> getEBXGuids()
{
    return FS.ebxGUIDs;
}


where the keys are the guids, and the ebxpath the value to it, so you can do

Code:
string ebxPath = ebxGuids[guid];

in case someone wonders where to start "loading levels", well it starts in an EBX and its ofc one I cant completly process yet, but the imports already, so here a nifty image on how to find stuff now (I omit here that you actually look for an ebx with that name, not a res, which the mesh plugin does, but as it has the same name usually, it works here)

just as info

http://www.nexusmods.com/masseffectandromeda/mods/192/?

so someone has time for mea research, can code, researched mine and ricks code and still chooses to not help with f.e. the mesh plugin, but creates an entire new tool from scratch in parallel? someone tell me again its me that doesnt want to work with others, who has made a pluginterface and all his research open? this is so demotivating...
