I am new to this game and I saw that is could modify and I would like to modify the characters but not be as to be able to export them so that you can edit them. :roll:

I've tried with the 3D Ripper and not they are caught me well are as incomplete or something as well?
Is there no way to open the adb files or mod to get meshes? :wink:

Hi there the files are in a proprietary format so it makes exporting and editing difficult. The Rec files for Rynn have been released and there are some for Arokh too but I can't seem to find them. Andrey / Drakon rider is the expert on this however he hasn't been on these forums for nearly 2 years now.

There are tutorials for the level editor and a ftp site that may help see the below links for more info:-

ftp://files.drakan.ru/

http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtop ... ers#p28584

Drakan.ru also had some info (translatable into English etc) but the website no longer seems to be working - FTP is OK though.

Anyone else have some ideas? It's late now for me so I'm a bit tired.

Ah, yes it didn't copy the login details. Username is fauser password 365445

link ftp://fauser:[email protected]/

If that does not work go to the main arokhslair.net site and scroll down to the links on the left side and click on drakan mods & maps under the level editing category.

I'm viewing the ftp site with google chrome and also works in Internet Explorer. It's a bit hard to find things on that site though as there's no index to what's on there. A lot of Drakan stuff is in the /pub directory.

See this topic for info on exporting the character mesh which may help but note the links are out of date:-

No I don't, sorry but I remember seeing a tutorial for it somewhere. Drakon Rider managed it you could try sending him a private message.

There is no option to export RECs or REOs of characters in Level Editor. The pseudo-REC of Arokh was created using debugger and it still do not contain correct matrices data (it uses database patcher to restore correct matrices after using this pseudo-REC look in http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtop ... f=4&t=1917 for example). Because Engine recalculates 3D matrices data after importing REC and I was too weak in 3D math to found how matrices data is stored.

You can convert REC to REO using 3dmodeler - load as REC and save as REO.

Though you can ask today hackers to made software tool for exporting REOs or may be full RECs from Drakan:OOTF databases - it can be done.

The plugins for REO importing and exporting exists for a number of 3DSMAX versions - http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=87 and also look in ftp://fauser:[email protected]/pub/dev_tools/MAX/ It contain plugins for 4,5,6 and 2010 3DMAXs.
