Holy blast from the past.

DeP, you still have that pillow-shading program you made like 8 years ago? That was something we were looking at using for lighting accents if we continue with Unreal Engine.

If you guys decide to go further with the project, I have a great resource for you, Though it requires a game ISO and ~4 hours depending on your hardware.

But I've been developing a tool with a friend that extracts every asset in the Metroid Prime series, including animations and levels. What it does is send the data over to Blender which assembles the model/rig/animation with materials that are an extremely close approximation.

It's definitely an early prototype so bare that in mind.

Sounds awesome. I think there was a similar tool floating around, but it was just a model viewer and didn't extract anything or convert it to formats that modeling software can use. That's good news. It could be really helpful.

Hi guys. I've been following this project since I first came across it on samus.co.uk back in 2006/early 2007. I'll be checking on this like I have been and I have faith that you will get this done someday. Good luck everyone.
