Wow, thank you so much for doing this. I've considered doing this project for many years now and never got around to it. You rock!

If you need help with anything, let me know. I've had the entire thing ripped to a drive for years now and have time and time again started on it only to get distracted by something else. I wish we could get the shaders to work on the PC version. I remember spending many hours at one point with that. The sounds on the Xbox IT version are much better than those on PC.

Hey, don't worry! ;) I'm working on an Island Thunder: Xbox Conversion mod right now, trying to get people who can make mods, also, I'll be releasing the 1.1.3 update as soon as I finish this .xml file.

Thanks for your feed back on my mod!

I just installed this mod. I'm on the first mission: Iron Dragon

So basically, this is the PC version with XBox GUI? Meaning the icons are different?

Otherwise the same missions with PC version?

I'm sorry I never had the XBox so not sure what entails the difference.

Just a little more info is all I'm looking for.

Again, thanks for doing this.

@Riley, everyday I look for an excuse to post memes. I wish its legal to respond to my boss this way :whistle:

I have and found all of my Xbox IT files - I have all of the textures (Already in RSB), models, sounds, mission files, etc.

When I messed with this back then, I primarily just worked on the sounds. There are quite a bit more sounds available to the IT version of GR on Xbox than there were released on PC. I have all of them converted back to the original WAV format. The naming scheme used for these files makes it to where you need to manually identify each one. I have never really started on that. They are named like "Base_fx 1.wav" "Speech_1.wav" - etc.. All of the texture files are in the same format as the PC version.

I also have many of the Summit Strike (Ghost Recon 2 Xbox) textures and sounds converted back to their original RSB and WAV formats. Like, IT, they are named exactly the same way. The textures for GR:2 are originally DDS files encoded in an Xbox format. I recovered the original DDS and then started putting them into RSB. (A lot of these textures are mapped in a way they can be used on GR stuff like smoke effects, characters, etc)

A lot of the information in these two games is stored in a .GLOB filetype. Most of it is in a big-endian format, but a lot of it is instantly salvageable without any conversion.

So, anyway, if you need some help with GR:IT - i can provide some things here and there.

if you can get the models extracted, message me ASAP :)

Zeealex,

The models for the Xbox versions of Ghost Recon are in .xqob format instead of qob format. I would bet the only difference is in header. I haven't looked into doing that though. I`ll tell you this - here is a snippet from a gun file from Summit Strike:

<GunFile>
<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>
<ModelFileName>pw_mg4_saw.qob</ModelFileName>
<NameToken>WPN_SAW_MG4</NameToken>
<InfoToken>IN_SAW_MG4</InfoToken>
<MagazineCapacity>200</MagazineCapacity>
<MaxRange>475.000000</MaxRange>
.............................
...
Notice the model filetype? The gun is still referenced to a qob NOT xqob. So - i don't think it would be very difficult. We'd have to look into it more.

I'm getting really interested in this again now that i've looked at all this:

Now, remember -the engine used on ALL XBOX original Ghost Recon titles (GR through Summit Strike) is the same engine with "obviously various changes" that is used on our PC version. Same ol' IKE RSE engine.

Now look at this:

That offers the ability to REALLY tweak the AI.^^^^

I wonder.... if any of that is active, but currently static in GR1 PC - and can be changed via XML.

The reason I have this suspicion is because S.O.A.F. (PC) - which also uses this engine - came with some additional tweaks and commands that when MANUALLY added to GR - actually worked.. this was proven by incorrect variables causing the game to crash with an IKE log referencing the new commands - and correct variables causing the game to function and a change in behavior.

If even SOME of these were in the engine code when GR1 was made - i'd be VERY happy.

Id love to see those sound and texture files if you do ever compile them.

I'll organize and zip up some of the sound effect files for you to play with. Give me a little time and i`ll do it. What I've have to do with GR2 sounds is convert them to a .WAV that GR will play. And, I have all of them in at least a workable WAV format now.

After I get them extracted they are a 'unique' version of an ADPCM WAV (4b 44khz 2ch) You have to have a codec to hear them - even VLC won't play them.

There's probably an easier way to do some of the things I do.

But, what I had been doing was dropping them in Audacity, splitting the stereo track into a mono downsample, fix the sample rate to 22 -then GR plays it just fine and they sound great.

There's literally thousands of sounds - so I don't have them all done. I've messed with it several times in the past and always get distracted or caught up with real-world issues.

There's some really good sound effects for GR2 to play with for GR1 mods - things such as commands from headquarters:

"Ghosts this is command: We've got satellite reports of enemies closing in from the east" -- "West" "South" "North" etc..

Lots of ambience and environmental sounds. Numerous degrees of rain and wind intensity. (IT:Xbox had this too) -This was useful for zone-elevation - like if you go up in height on a map - you change the wind sound played in that zone (LOTS of incremental zone sounds for this). Obviously, which, can be done in our IGOR to make our maps sound much better.

As far as textures, a lot of the textures for GR 2 are still in XPR and they have to be converted to DDS to even begin to use them. Once in original DDS you can of course do whatever you want with them and then save as RSB. Most of the GR:IT textures are not really worth our time. The PC counterparts are the same and\or better.

I`ll upload a few sound packs at a time in zips based on their style "ambience," "Voice," "effects" etc. Give me a couple days or so and i`ll put the first organized pack up.

Here's the first pack:

http://www3.zippyshare.com/v/83087591/file.html

This is 141 of the Command field update, intel, objective, alert, etc sounds. I just mass-named them "Command_1" "Command_2" etc.. (Original filenames could not be recovered)

They are all converted and should be ready to go for GR1. Personally, I think these will be really great for GR missions or gametypes.

Again, if you give me a few days i`ll try to get them all done.

I was VERY curious about those AI commands - so I couldn't help myself.

I opened up the GR executable and scanned for every referenced string and many of those AI commands and\or similar ones are in the code. In theory, you CAN change the AI behavior in GR using something like what I pasted on page 1.

Just some of the things I see that you can change are:

Fire LOS radius (I'm assuming this is the Radius of the default firing "spot-n-shoot" cone)

Conditions based on 'how' suppressed the enemy can be or will be. (For example: How suppression affects a recruit, vet, or elite enemies aim; "If %_difficulty enemy is _% suppressed then aim is _%" Conditions would allow modification of those three.

Scatter formation range - (In IGOR when you use the "Scatter") You seem to be able to define a min and max range of that scatter with this condition. Likely the same with Wedged, and Single-File - you can define the minimum and maximum distance.

AI - Team & Enemy Members "Headshot Chance" was another one I saw.

These types of things are similar to the conditions in the cmbtmdl file -in how they work. Even if we're unable to find a valid way to get the engine to read these options at startup, IKE RSE has the ability to exec new files like this on the go - if i remember right. Meaning you can put conditions in a cfg file and use the exec console command to get it to work. (Or exec in a mission script)

I`ll definitely be coming back to this and investigating it further. There appears to be a lot of AI-based commands that have static (default) values attached to them -that can likely be overidden.

I'm pretty sure that the missions are unchanged for the Ghost Recon Xbox Conversion Pack Mod.

I looked at the readme and Update log and didn't see otherwise.

Strictly a GUI enhancement along with the order in which specialist are unlocked has been changed.

I'm pretty sure that the missions are unchanged for the Ghost Recon Xbox Conversion Pack Mod.

I looked at the readme and Update log and didn't see otherwise.

Strictly a GUI enhancement along with the order in which specialist are unlocked has been changed.

thanks for clearing it up. I wasn't sure if I did something wrong since it looked the same to me, with the exception of the GUI.

I just installed this mod. I'm on the first mission: Iron Dragon

So basically, this is the PC version with XBox GUI? Meaning the icons are different?

Otherwise the same missions with PC version?

I'm sorry I never had the XBox so not sure what entails the difference.

Just a little more info is all I'm looking for.

Again, thanks for doing this.

@Riley, everyday I look for an excuse to post memes. I wish its legal to respond to my boss this way :whistle:

Yes, it does begin on Iron Dragon, however, there is some changes to the map "m05_embassy" so I added the campaign.xml file there so you wouldn't have to take the changed mission and put in the "Origmiss" folder, replacing the original one.
