I want to thank you once again, Nigel.  Your RaceCon utility is a superb method of working with 3DO files.   :thumbup:

Great stuff!!!

Updated version downloadable from first post.

One tiny change - a check that was performed when loading 3dos has been switched to only complaining if the 'strict' option is turned on.

Nigel


thx nigel, i already had started setting all my sub.3do numbers to 0 to enable loading, this here is better.

Hi, the download no longer seems to work?
Is it available anywhere else?
Thanks, Vos

I've re-uploaded it now - it's been rebuilt but I don't think there's any substantial changes.

what actually is an id compared to offets i tend to think in from my workings with gpl editor?
They are the same - the id is the offset from the beginning of the 3do section I think. It's possible I take a few liberties with them though, but I don't precisely remember.

However RaceCon supports other Papy games as well as GPL. The 3do files used by the games prior to GPL were similar, but the N4 ptfs are completely different, and I've forgotten whether those ids are offsets or something else.

Nigel


Finally solved my puzzle on the ids.

they are relative offsets from the beginning of the PRIM 3do section. basically just as in 3doEd or GPLeditor with the difference that they are in decimal here and not in hex.


Btw, view track 3d gives me blank white screen. is that a limitation or am i doing anything wrong?

Sorry: yes, that's what I meant but wasn't explicit.

It looks like that's as intended - it works only for N4 ptf files. The equivalent in GPL is just to open the trk file.

Nigel,


just found out that racecon contains info i never heard of before. talking about details on flavour 17 nodes. I knew about distance, longitude and animation splitters but especially the 5 comparison operator options are new to me. could you be so nice to explain the following please:


EDIT:
Distance, Longitude, Latitude and Animation Splitters turned out to be easy.
Animation goes with Operator 5.
Distance, Longitude and Latitude with Operator 1 or 2.

So what would be interesting left is whether

- Operators 3,4,5 make any sense with Distance, Long or Lat and what they mean
- whether State splitters are useful for anything in 3do editing (and not only to be used with some hardcoded exe stuff like bevelled tires in the menu)




thanks in advance Nigel,

Steffen

Whenever I open a .trk file, select a section, then close the .trk window, I start getting missing graphics across all programs. Close window buttons, forward/back buttons in Firefox, Start Menu icons, etc. The only way to get them back is a complete Windows reboot (logging off or closing explorer.exe in the Program Manager doesn't work). I just reinstalled the .NET framework, so that's not the problem.

EDIT: Another way to avoid this is to re-open the .trk file, then close it again without expanding the root tree.

Possibly related is that when I do open up a .trk and click on a track section, I don't see anything, instead of the gray asphalt, green grass, etc. that I see when no section is selected. (The same thing happens in AIEdit, but without the missing graphics problem in all windows).

Nigel, would it be possible to have a save or rebuild function in Racecon?

I use it sometimes to clean up a 3do and can only get that working if i change something.
Forcing a rebuild of the 3do by a button would be just as nice  :)
