  1. Cmon, i see it everywhere, don't get me wrong Zee, but look for your chief/director/boss/whatever and ask him "hey, whats up, iamok, yes, we are family, we are the one, one great company, will overcome all difficulties together, but what about my payment, i worked for years here, i think it kinda fg low" and result will not take long ) But of course, it' because of a name, it has nothing with socio-economic relations, they need to rename it to CoolSoft and everything we'll changed immidiately just like that. Microsoft to KindWordsSoft and EA to GoodE, Tesla to Edison. Ups to many companies to rename, but we'll manage. As for me i don't wait for GR, The year is 2023 and GR is here already somehow. It's only a beginning πŸ˜‰
  2. There's nothing to do. As @Zeealex said some programming magic nedded, it can be software (game code, dx api, drivers, windows, any process basically) and/or hardware problem. Try everything, maybe it'll help you . "Read from location 00000008 caused an access violation." means "GR officially crushed", you'll never know what happened without debugger, profiler and other dev tools.
  3. So true, main woman character in Terminator 6 and Ellen Ripley, can't even compare them, first one is so synthetic, made by some agitated mind who never met a girl or women, just like that and Ripley, she is just natural and dangerous. Just like any other women on Earth ) It is political and dark πŸ˜‰ and always was
  4. @Zeealex You made like some promo art poster treyarch/dice aaa game stuff So, can you tell based on your experience is it typical workflow for industry (photogrammetry or other automation processes, marmoset and other tools) or there are some old fashioned guys and girls who creates everything by their hands, pen/mouse starting with splines, cubes, whatever?
  5. Here is format (RSB) description . My code is still far from complete, so it's better to start from description and implement format support properly.
  6. Vote for hardware build. For exmple, old 775 socket powered by xeon x5450 (i bought one of those on aliexpress), 775 or higher (1156, 1155) will be enough. Software emulators are not good enough for 3d, like old games or 3d editors, some of them work, but most are not supported.
  7. In most cases SDK means export, i don't think they have import plugs. Well, i don't get it :), but there is only one straight way to do it, it's reverse engineering, it's not that hard but it takes a lot of time.
  8. More like normal map files, except normal means totaly different structure. Same for playstation version of the game. I mean that files (even with the same extension) for pc differs from console ones. There must be a reason for this (optimizations, new engine, console specific things, whatever), but once again it's just files with specific structure, 7zip or any other archiver can't help here.
  9. maybe this helps https://github.com/AlexKimov/RSE-file-formats/tree/master/scripts/3dsmax/reference download link https://github.com/AlexKimov/RSE-file-formats/archive/master.zip and then scripts-3dsmax-reference or maybe we just talking about same files )
  10. Well, it's possible, but (there starts a long story about work and a free time)... it's everything i know about lights, if i missed something, let me know "MN" means "magic number" or just unknown variable
  11. It (search) works fine for me, but i use search operators https://ahrefs.com/blog/google-advanced-search-operators/ . For example, this https://www.google.com/search?q="ghost recon"|"gr" heroes unleashed mod will show us topics on HU mod and this is what google knows about Zee https://www.google.com/search?q="zeealex" What i don't like is that Google hardly loves outbound links for websites, so if you want to push your website to the top, you need to buy this things, and it randomly ignores new websites and pages, you can wait too long while new webpage will be added to search index (because of very smart algorithms). Also, we have Yandex here, it works different (almost same) and search results are more revelant for local search. But google monopolizes search for example mobile one and Yandex loses positions from year to year.
  12. Yep, this thing is not only here, it's everywhere, you'll be banned on reddit.com once you tried to use dangerous words like "communism", but what is politics? It's just a struggle between social classes. We don't need to go depper, just to realize only this simple thing and of course there is politics in my words, because "tales" about money is everywhere I've had enough of this. Nothing personal, comrade.
  13. Well, I couldn't agree more, but that's how it works and there is Survivorship bias . Yes, Remedy Entertainment (based on latest news) is independent but what about Blue Byte, Red Storm Ent or other? Games are made for money, we can't deny it, they can be bad, good or whatever word, but they must meet enougth buyers to be successful. Let's speak about studios like Activision/Blizzard. Is this Activision that make everyting wrong or it's the world and situation in this world. My answer "Yes". Bobby Kotick is a "bad" guy but a great businessman. He can sell you the same game nth times in a row (kill of duty). That's why they will be ok for years. Same with Warccraft 3. So, do whatever you can, this https://www.taxwatchuk.org/reports/world_of_taxcraft/ or this https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/12/18222484/activision-blizzard-layoffs-cuts-jobs-record-results-2018 = image 1. Money isn’t everything, but almost everything is based on money in capitalism. Until society will be ready to move forward, as it was made before with feodalizm and slavery. )
  14. You all know that every market becomes monopolistic, right? How many publishers were closed in the last years? Many, too many. In the end it doesn't matter how good your games, but how good you know the rules and how good you play this game. You can make really great games loved by modding community, but it doesn't mean that Activision won't buy you and close because they can. So, you make something that helps you to be on top, not too high and not too low but near. Ghost Recon is popular? Ok, we make something named Ghost Recon. Is it good? Doesn't matter. Is it Ghost Recon we all love? Doesn't matter. Money? Sure, we need them. Modding? Next. Our game will follow trends, be nice and maybe simple and "how do you called it Ghost Recon? Such a strange name you know, bit ok lets name it that way." Our games is still loved by comminity, they made mods and so on? Nice but what about sales? Russian devs don't make games anymore, except some online stuff like WarThunder and smaller project. There were plenty of good games in the past, but today they don't even try. Of course it is expensive and a chance to lose is to high. Simple as that. I am a part of russian comminity of a good old russian game, which is still REALLY popular after 20 years. Some young guys made (still work on) a similar game for Android and it's popular too. Does it mean that official publisher will make a remaster of this game? Well... Is there any alternatives, maybe Devolver? Does anyone know big publishers cured from "DRM and micro transactions ridden bugfests" desease?
  15. Sounds great, but "modern remasters" is a strange thing, most of them are not so good as expected. Add new visuals - check, add bugs and ignore community - double check. Also, there are examples when a good old game, that was very popular in late 90s and 2000s, can't achieve popularity in 2020s. Quake Champions, for example. It plays similar to Quake 3/Live but most of the players choose PUBG and stay away of hardcore arena shooter and it makes devs to optimize things or even to stop development.
  16. Culture Of Sexism And Abuse is everywhere for years, in every single country, company, whatever and (they) never told us, but suddenly something was changed in recent years. It's like everyone was sleeping but decided to open one eye. The real question is do we need to find reasons why it's happening or still try to ignore, just play games and live life because "it's not my business", "where is it? France? It's far away." "those game developers, it's madness" "It'll never happened in EA". The thing described in article is not just about human nature itself (man and women, power and weakness), it's more about culture of money or capitalism. Can female game character change the world? Can phraze "someone life matters" or feminist movement or Greta "for God'd sake" Tunberg change something? No. Can poor majority (people) live in peace with minority of reach? That's the right question and, unfortunately, same answer. In the world of capital life of men or women means nothing, it doesn't matter who you are or color of your skin or gender, it works similar in Russia, USA, GB, GERMANY and nothing personal, just a business. I mean capitalizm wants only thing and it's capital. It must be bigger and bigger otherwise you'll lost everything, And the result is dehumanization and fascism, men becomes a tool and life turns too pointless process of endless capital accumulation. And even more. I can say that Russia is already on the way to build a fascism country and it means only one thing if you look closer you'll see same thing in your country. There is a strong connection between what's happen all over the world. Well known events in USA, protests in different countries like Greece and even here in Russia, recent publications about abuse and harassment and rise of different LGTB or feminist movements have strong political basis and used all over the world as political instrument. Racism was for years so as harassment so as enviroment protection problems. So, what's changed? We changed, our mind changed, people all over the world are woke up and we will see more "wonderful discoveries" in the future.
  17. and we finished with Ranbow Six 1/2 formats. His own project already allow to run R6 maps in Unreal Engine, which is cool, maybe someday we'll be able to run Ghost recon maps but it will take a little more effort
  18. Hey ) Formats (except map and pob there are a lot of unknown params for forest node, animations and some other less significant) are fully explored, i mean this information (geometry data, information about textures and object postions) can help you to maker any tool you need. Check this 010editor templates https://github.com/AlexKimov/RSE-file-formats/tree/master/010Editor-templates and ask me for any questions. Also, me and Philip https://github.com/boristsr, he works on his own actually, decided too build a python lib which can help a lot to read and may be even wright/convert data, but it's still in development and me doing nothing to speed up the process
  19. Work almost, and some time to answer questions, plugins for Noesis are ready to use (view only), scripts for 3dsMax work much worser. I want to move all my tools to javascript and create a website, i'am looking for universal solution that will work for a long period of time (after it will be finished) on any PC or mobile device, but it'll take some time. Some more years ) Any mooding tools (and games) tend to become outdated, javscript and browsers is a solution kind of. Wait for any questions, i don't really test any of my tools
  20. never heard about this , spend some months back then in 2016 and found nothing. So, russian scene (OGR one) is dead for many years.
  21. it was an experiment. nah, i'am not a Ghost, but it never stopped me.
  22. export doesn't work properly, try rsb editor from official sdk
