Hi all,

Title says it all basically. I was looking to port some of the building models over to Mafia 1. I think I've found the .SDS file I want and the texture and put the extracted model into 3DS Max. Now I want to apply the texture to the model.

Has anyone got any experience of fiddling around with the .SDS and .DDS files?

I only know .DDS files, which are Nvidia '3D' textures. Many modern games use these. You can download a free .DDS plugin for Adobe Photoshop which allows you to open and save these filetypes.

Slightly different note, have you ever used the injector that allows you to fly?

Yes, it has been a while back, but I managed to fly around. As far as I remember it worked a bit stiff though. Thinking Not like MafiaCon.

It is a bit. I'm trying to pull a scene from M2 into M1 but it's complicated. Where M1 had a scene.4ds for scenery and a scene2.bin for objects, M2 has loads of little models for one scene. Something as simple as an alley behind a house is like 7 or 8 models..

Mafia 2's model formats are a tad more complicated, in that practically every dynamic model has bones. No wonder why we don't have custom cars for it yet.

I wish someone knew how to find all the pieces of a scene so I could assemble it in 3DS Max Sad
