Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike DVDExtras


Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I know GR2 is the long abandoned red headed step-child of the series. But I've been able to pull out some material from the 'Extras' Section of the game.

seeing as the GR2 section is read only, I'll pop it here

This for the most part includes concept art, images regarding gear and the Natick Soldier Center Future force warrior concept.
 

Spoiler

This should also allude nicely as to what else I'm working on at the moment ;)


Go Wild!

I regret selling my old Xbox. Ghost Recon 2 seemed pretty neat. Last Ghost Recon game to use the Red Storm engine, I take it?

It was indeed, after GR2 Ubi began to use more general-purpose engines such as Diesel and Anvil. So this is the last GR game where we see variations on QOB files.
GR2 had some great models and maps, hence why I'm here losing my ###### over these damned files!
 

In other news - The very hacked together program I've written is successfully reading files and providing correct debug information so far!

So the easy part is done at least!

after a battle that was harder than it should have been, I've finally got the correct data types implemented for the vertices.

 

I just really hope they're the right numbers now 🤔I get the strong impression I may need to use floating point after all, 56 verts seems a little high

So after a long time of staring at a mess of Hex. I've realised that yes, I am wrong in the post above.

Individual vertex data appears to be as follows for XSKA Files:

Bytes

Data Type

Description

0-12

Float

Possible Vertex Coordinates

12-24

Unknown – Likely Float/Int

Unknown - Possibly Vertex Normals

24-30

Short

Unknown, they are usually either 10, 9, or 0.

30-32

2 Byte String

Terminator string

32-44

Float

Vertex Colours

44-40

4 Byte String

Terminator string

 


XQOB files use 24 Bytes Per Vertex, and XSKA Files use 48 bytes per vertex. The key difference between XQOB and XSKA that I've spotted so far is the XQOB's lack of support for vertex colours

 

The hunt goes on....
