    Hello there!
    Please don't value my question as a request, but I've been qurious for a long time, does Dario and his team have any plans on porting Unleashed's DLC levels?

    It's a shame, though, I wouldn't mind somebody bolting on a spiffed up version of Eggmanland Wii someday :v:

    I already ripped the whole stage of Windmill Isle Act 2 in Wii, but since I don't have the tool which Russians use, this stage has texture mapping problem and overlapping geometry problems, I hope somebody could help me to fix the duplicated texture problem and overlapping geometry at least......I can rip Eggmanland too =P

    First, here are some updates to the "Modern Amy wearing her Classic Outfit" model.

    I ended up using the skirt and shoes from that model that Pexs showed. I had to make a few alterations to them, but I got them to work.


    Also, I've managed to make some improvements to the whole "Espio with Knuckles Chaotix styled color-changing skin" model (Which is now "named" 32x Espio.)

    The weird bits of odd shading on his head are gone, other parts look a lot better, and I finally got him to work in that Speed Highway Challenge Act (sph205.ar.00 also had the models/materials/textures for the spotlights in it. The materials and textures had some non-standard characters in their filenames, which were causing problems within the Archive Editor.)
    I got your message, downloaded the model, and eventually decided to utilize its shoes and skirt (though I had to reduce their polygon counts, re-rig them, and re-texture them.)
    I chose not to use the head due to rigging problems, along with some annoyances when I attempted to remove the bottom-center quill (In both Classic and Modern, Amy only has 5 quills, not 6.)

    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who prefers seeing non-angry/non-serious Super Sonic. :D

    So I ripped it using ninjaRipper, when I import the map into 3DS max, I've already made all materials have unique name. However, some materials have the same texture but in different directory

    for example:
    mat1
    C:\Frame0000\Tex0000_0.dds

    mat2
    C:\Frame0001\Tex0001_0.dds

    Tex0000_0.dds and Tex0001_0.dds are the same bitmap

    for example 2:
    mat2
    C:\Frame0001\Tex0001_0.dds

    mat3
    C:\Frame0002\Tex0001_0.dds

    Tex0001_0.dds and Tex0001_0.dds are NOT the same bitmap but have the same name but in different directory

    If I export the map now, some of the texture will be replaced cuz the name are the same.

    Is it possible to let 3ds max find out if the bitmap is the same and condense the materials? I appreciate very much if anyone could help me on this, because I've quite a lot of different materials but have the same texture in different directory...




    The second problem is the overlapping geometries, they shares the same pivot, so I guess there maybe a way to collect the pivots of all objects in a list and then delete duplicated geometries which have the same pivot

    There;s a script ton condense material names, but it's crashy at times.

    Hey everyone. I was wondering, has anyone seen a script that would be useful for creating loops and corkscrew stage geometry? I had seen someone post it a few months back (in this thread, I think). It more or less took a shape and cloned it along a spline along with the texture UVs. Has anyone seen it?

    This doesn't work at all, it will mess up example 2 because both texture shares the same name but in different directory, the only way to solve this is to check whether the texture is the same, I think there is a function CompareBitmap() but I don't know how to write maxscript

    You shouldn't post this here, but for the record, I completely agree with you.

    Hey guys, I've made a lot of progress on Kingdom Valley over the last couple weeks, so here's a new video.

    So, I'm going to start working on Sonic Simulations again.
    To start it off, I decided to mess around with some materials/shaders. As a fun experiment, I made a model based on an old idea of mine:
    Hyper Virtual Hedgehog! Complete with color changing fur, color changing irises, and color changing chest/hand cores.

    I need some help with 3ds max. When I try to export my file (a small test level just to practice) as a .scene file, I can't select the file. Is there something that I might have missed? Or do I need to enable something?

    What do you mean you can't select the file?

    Dude, I'm loving this. I can't wait to see it completed! What's your priority list of things to complete in the level?

    I mean that when I choose (via upper left icon) to export the file, and go into the scenes folder to select my file, none of them show up. However, if I start up 3ds max and choose to load a file, I can see all of my scene files just fine.

    This is my to-do list is for this level, which is probably at least slightly incomplete:
