I've decided to make Star Fox Command hack and/or Russian translation (depends on difficulty/possibility to change stuff other than pics/text).
What I want to change in hack (if it's possible, hehe):
- at first, scenario - to make it linear and the only one ending;
- second - models, changing them to original Star Fox models;
- music - Star Fox and Star Fox 2 music;
- and the last - translation.
I've read a few docs and started to work, and, well, I got stuck on few moments, such as 3D model format there and text hacking.
3D models there have MDL format and they doesn't work in any possible 3D editor and they're not in any usual Nintendo format; each file in its header contains "MGL Model" and "MGL Mesh" phrases, I've tried to google these, but haven't find any info.
As for text - I've expanded NTFR font with Russian letters, assigned custom table, but it doesn't work at all - Russian letters are not showing. I think I've lost something elsewhere, but I can't find what exactly.
Also, Editor BMG Arquivos didn't worked for me too, Ted is too complex (I'd really appreciate if somebody would me with that one)
You can find edited NTFR file here.
I'm working on USA region ROM.
UPD: While looking up through random scripts I found out that some scripts refer to "rom:/*.nsbmd", which for me meant that models should be or somewhere else they exist in that usual format, but the only one model in NSBMD format I found had the same "MGL Mesh" in header. Any ideas?
UPD1: After extensive googling, I've found out that LowLines figured out how MDL format works in Star Fox Command, so it opens up in Console Tool. Damn, it took 4 days to find it out.
UPD2: I've figured out how to extract models from Star Fox Command! I can make a short tutorial :3
