Hi!

I could make it bigger, but the meaning of the VRAM pages is assembling the textures as the real PSX hardware does, so you can assign multiple textures pieces on their right position (which generally comes configured on the TIM files) and use any VRAM page on the model to get the full texture displayed. VRAM pages used by any model are exported automatically.

True, but most of the time the textures are in coordinates that go beyond 256x256. Can you at least extend it to 512x512?

Yes, I'm still trying to understand why these coordinates are outside the 256x256 boundaries. I guess they are overlapping another VRAM pages.

I've fixed this issue, it was caused by an error in the textures Y position calculation.
I had posted an update with this fix, but I removed as I'm testing PSXPrev and there are other issues to be fixed.
I'm planning to release an update tomorrow with the fixes.

Thats awesome.
I just want to say thankyou for this software, I've been trying to get it to work with Breath of Fire 3 and 4, but it seems those games use their own texture and model formats, same with MGS1, Dino Crisis has the same formats as the other Ps1 capcom games (EMI format), it seems to be a container so I'm unsure if the tool could read into the formats inside.

Added some gizmo manipulation and combined mesh export (available on the next update):

Edit: The model is from Tenchu: Stealth Assassins. The models can be assembled/exported using the new gizmos and merged exporting features.

Would anyone possibly know what to do with Crash Bash with this? when i try to scan the 1 file on disc called CRASHBSH.DAT for models, it finds 1 but immediately after says "terminated due to stackoverflowexception" or something along those lines, this file and 1 called BASHY with no extension are literally the only 2 files on disc of any significance, the rest are very small in size or just like system files of some sort.

Great update. Thankyou as always.
TOD animations is going to be awesome to checkout.
I wanted to ask if its ok to request an additional common format?

I didn't want to just make a request without knowing if its acceptable first.

I wish there could be a new obj exporter that accepts vertex color.

Real talk. I have been using this program to rip Um Jammer Lammy models. i can try to upload some models from the game.

You can export OBJ with vertex colors from PSXPrev, but only a few applications can read this information. MeshLab does read it.

But when i export the model from meshlab with vertex coloring on the faces, i imported it in blender and the vertex colors don't show up for some reason. so if there's a obj exporter that accepts vertex color, i can view it in blender and it has vertex color data on the object. just like the ply exporter that does the same thing.

How about some other formats to scan? Like Twisted Metal DMD, Crash Bandicoot RSF, and PXL Image formats.









Edit: When i view the TOD animations from Parappa The Rapper or Um Jammer Lammy the models have at least 2 or 3 submodels. so the TOD animations won't work on one of the submodels.
