  1. don't use it for modded Carbon or if u want use/make mods for carbon. it makes all old mods incompatibility between game and new mods, maded with nfs vlted! Reinstall mods does't help.

  2. you're right, mods are not compatible. I will try to find out a solution for this problem.

    1. Both mod installer(your and RENESiS's) patched GlobalMemoryFile. I think the best solution will be a change files that will be edited into VltEd.

      Delete
    2. I noticed that since the v1.1 of VLT-Ed. GlobalEd tends to had more prirority on the modifications , but now Vlt-ed instantly erases it. I suggest you to create a sort of installer separated of the VLT-Ed in order to allow us, modders full rights over our mods, since that everyone can modify our data with the .nfscfg files.

      Delete
  3. Nfsu360, regarding the MWPS importer, it works really well, but it has some bugs, here's the list:

    I tried 2 things:


    -edit a totally unedited attribs.bin (674 kb)
    -edit an already edited attribs.bin (647 kb)


    Both situations share the same bugs:
    -Car engine sounds disappear just when you gear up, then it returns when the car engine is in high rpm.
    -Strings can't have special characters, like ñ, ç, or words with tilde, lile á.
    -The importer doesn't recognize the Gear Count node.
    -The importer, very little times, doesn't recognize some values, I ignore if it's because they are either incorrect or because of a bug. If I try to reload the same file, the same errors (In red) appear, that could suggest that some things were incorrectly made by either the Modder or VltEd's code.


    That's it for now.

    4. You have to disable mod loader.

      Delete
    5. modloader is 100% disabled. the issue seems to lie with the customized attributes.bin file i had.
      any news on gameplay.bin compatability of carbon. it worked fine in 2.0, even if .lzc had to be done manually i would be nice to include it in the next version

      Delete
    6. could you try to open unmodified (original) attributes.bin file then save it using the latest version of NFS-VltEd (3.1)? It looks like the problem could be caused by some bugs that exist in earlier versions of the tool.

      You can move changes from corrupted to unmodified file by using NFSCfg file.

    4. May I ask, would be possible add support of NFSTexEd for Xbox360 textures? I mean, open and extract them, because in Xbox360, some textures from NFSMW/NFSC seems to be in higher resolution.

      There is leaked version of Xbox360 NFSMW with uncompressed files, organized just like the PC version of the game if necessary, and NFSTexEd can recognize textures names and their resolutions from that version, and for example, vinyls are in 1024x1024 instead of 512x512 (as it is in PC version).

      Delete
    5. @379Felipe (oops, forgot to mention who I want to talk to on my last comment)
      You're probably going to have to unswizzle the image once you read it (ie, rearrange the image array that was optimized for the hardware)

      I haven't mucked around XB360 texture files since, well no interest. (It's not you, but I still haven't built a Python library and start converting PS2-HP2 content to post-HP2-PC platform formats yet.)

      Delete
  6. ok
    Remember to break then with geometry in Need for Speed World, in order to be successful import and export geometry cars.

    Because people are asking in forums on the Porsche 918 RSR, which is not available in the game.
    The last build was 1613 for NFS World. Younger builds have a different structure geometry.

    Time is enough ,its not hurry

  8. Hey, you probably already know that, but your VLT as the same kind of problem of arushan's VLTEdit.
    In order to load all necessary gameplay files correctly, in arushan's VLTEdit, you have to load the files in the following order:

    1-db.bin/vlt
    2-frontend.bin/vlt
    3-gpcore.bin/vlt
    4-All other gameplay files.bin/vlt

    If you follow this order, you will notice that the hierarchy will be correct: http://i.imgur.com/OKGQ9V2.jpg

    Otherwise, the gameplay files will load, but they won't be correctly organized in the hierarchy as they were supposed to have, shown in this pic: http://i.imgur.com/GzlHdV9.jpg

    1. So we could make car mods for mw wich doesn't replace any car?

    3. we can add data to globalb.lzc

      Delete
    4. Nfsu360, is it possible that VltEd can add support for expanding globalb.lzc as Speedyheart said? She said it's possible, and since you announced that the new version of VltEd will allow the expansion of the database structure, I assume you can do it, not right now, but for later. For Patch purposes, being able of adding data to globalb.lzc would allow us to fix many bugs related to cars, and add new features if possible.

      Delete
    5. I am planning to add support for globalb.lzc in the next update. Without this it will be not possible to add new cars.

      Delete
    6. Can you please tell us what games will be compatible with it ? It would be great if we had a support for NFSU2 aswell :D , from now the only performance modifier only works on fully upgraded lvl 3 cars , and it's soemwhat bugged.

    7. at the moment the following games are supported: MostWanted, Carbon, ProSteet, Undercover and World

    8. currently adding new car models (the unused models in nfsc) makes the game act weird.

      also the texture glitches from adding to globalB can be fixed by simply putting the tpk chunks into globalA.

  13. Well, there are some things that I would like to report.

    As some people already know, pvehicle hashes in the NFSMW PS2 Demo are 8 bytes long instead of 4 bytes, as it is in the final game.
    http://i.imgur.com/pyyhJBY.jpg

    If you check the node "cops" in pursuitlevels>default>heat_0X/race_0X from NFSMW, you will notice that the hash there in NFSMW is the same as the one from PS2 Demo:
    http://i.imgur.com/0GIjtzX.jpg

    Since changing the Hash value seems to do nothing (both in NFSMW and NFSC), I guess it is some kind of leftover, as the cop that appears during pursuits are only affected when changing the "String" entry in the VLTEd 3.1.

    I'm just reporting that because if you load the NFSMW attributes.bin in the lastest VLTEd, the hash shown will be only 4 bytes instead of 8 bytes: http://i.imgur.com/gEQHYPP.jpg

    Now something that I don't know if it is fixed in the next version of VLTEd, but it won't hurt report.
    Something that Speedy noticed is that if a second cop is added in the "cops" entry, for example, add copsuvpatrol to appear during the Heat level 1:
    http://i.imgur.com/THYXBzX.jpg

    The copsuvpatrol will never spawn. In order to spawn is necessary to edit the "amount of entries enabled for use", as shown in this pic: http://i.imgur.com/iw1O1aG.jpg
    Changing that to 02 allowed the copsuvpatrol to spawn during heat level 1 pursuit. The same system is used for other nodes, like GEAR_RATIO in transmissions, ENGINE_BRAKING in engine, YAW_CONTROL in tires, etc.

    Also, may I ask, how the string in "cops" entry is defined? Sure, I can write any valid pvehicle there with VLTEd, but I couldn't see any change through hex.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I will take a look on this. The string in "cops" entry is defined in the db.vlt as offset to strings table stored into the db.bin file. This is a reason why there is no changes in the db.bin file after change. Anyway hashes in "cops" entries should be updated as well.

      Do you know what algorithm is used to calculate hash 64?

      Delete
    2. So it is basically an offset kind like the ones used to set car models in pvehicles? It is going to be a pain find it in hex. Anyway, thanks!
      Nope, sorry, I don't know how to calculate hash64. I just used the game files from PS2 Demo to find them.

      Also, in the next VLTEd are we going to be able to change the current car model in pvehicle without changing the collision boxes of it?

  14. I have taken the past few weeks non-stop day and night to recreate my car in a 3D model using lightwave3D, I am finally finished.

    After doing everything (including aligning and naming surfaces matlist, etc) the geometry importer says the vertices not found.

    Can I please send you the car model i made in .OBJ format and hopefully you can create the GEOMETRY.BIN with the NFSU2 geometry compiler please?

    I will even pay you money (via paypal) :)

    I have just have spent so much time and have dreamt for years (about nearly 16 years) to drive my car model in a game. I have spent so much time making the model this past few weeks. But when I compile the compiler says vertices not found. I think I need 3D studio max or someone with access to 3D studio max because I think lightwave3D obj files is not compatible with the exe.

    Hopefully you will respond, this would mean the world to me.

    Thank you so much. I will await daily for your response.

    3. Hi ASC, I realized everytime I export as a .obj file, the surfaces in surface editor have a luminosity of 0%, diffuse 80.0%, SPECULARITY 100%, glossiness 0%, reflections 0%, transparency 0%, translucency 0%,

      No matter how many times I save as a .OBJ file. And I also always get a .mtl file, I think for lightwave 3D the .mtl file is actually where all the material data is stored. I think I found out why.

      But the surfaces (names for the compiler to recognize) and polygons for the surfaces data are always stored even when I open the .OBJ file without the .mtl file.

  23. Very wonderfull tool, I'm really glad you added support for Undercover and World.

    So a question about the cops, with the next version, we'll be able to set multiple cop cars at each heat level? 3.1 allows to see 3 vehicle sets per heat but as mentioned before, the max allowed entries need to be edited for each of them to spawn. Also, is it possible to add more then 3 entries, like having 4 different cop cars spawn at a single heat level or is there a hardcoded limit?

    Also, we'll be able to add nodes. Does this mean that it's going to be possible to add extra info per heat level that isn't there currently? I mean for example, only certain heat levels have an option to enable spike strips, will we be able to add a unique spike strip entry per heat level preset with the next version?

    Anyway, thanks for all your work so far!

    1. NFS:MW Mod Loader and the MWPS script format will be not supported in my tools (except import of MWPS ) because of very limited functionality. The idea of NFS-VltEd is the possibility to modify the database structure directly and simplification of mods creation process. I added new script format (ModScript), which allows to modify the database in very user friendly way for example if you want to change tire offsets you can achieve it by this script line:

      update_field ecar copgto TireOffsets[0] X 1.61

      instead of writing something like this:

      patch float bin:0x40d00 1.61

    Will you ever look into the PS2/Xbox/Xbox 360 tpk archives? The PS2 demo's are basically early versions of the final game, and contain alot of interesting textures. PS2 geometry would be good to view/extract too.

    Also, think you could look through the PS2 Demo attributes? As they dont work with VLT because of a different hash system. Final PS2 attributes do work. I can send you the file.

    Will there be some kind of UG1/UG2 support for VLT?
