Destroy All Humans
« on: May 28, 2020, 15:01 »

Destroy All Humans is the remaster of the original game by THQ, now being made by THQ Nordic and Black Forest Games. Of interest here is that it has released a free demo on GOG https://www.gog.com/game/destroy_all_humans_demo, meaning file extraction may be able to start prior to release.

Release date: July 28, 2020.

The demo uses Unreal Engine 4.22.3, the game will likely follow suit.

Demo game size: ~8GB

Textures work fine, as do Physics and Skeletal meshes.


Loading static meshes is currently impossible.


Out of curiosity, I tried using the dauntless preset (it was the only game on the comp. table that used 4.22.3, maybe they shared some similarities?). I got a virtual textures error when opening static meshes, and textures no longer load:

Static Mesh loading:

Texture loading:


That may be useless to know, but who knows? Either way, hope the first part is helpful.

You shouldn't use Dauntless game override. Use any of UE4.XX options, but not existing games made by different companies.

Again that last bit was to satisfy my curiosity. Either way, the 4.22 option doesn't let me view static meshes.

Also, to correct myself a bit, I managed to confuse Darksiders Genesis, made by THQ Nordic, with Dauntless (by Phoenix).

How did you managed to load Skeletal meshes? Its keep giving me errors on any UE4.x.x. version overrides.

btw, after quick look, there not some much changes since first beta, except for new costumes.

Using the 4.22 override, only certain skeletals work. For example crypto_skeleton works, but not Anal_Probe_Skeletal.

Loading any mesh straight-up doesn't work. Really, only textures work.

It seems this game has some special (i.e. non-standard) geometry compression. According to error message, some meshes has vertex position stored in 8 bytes instead of 12.

Which is a little weird, because I've been informed the closed beta technical preview didn't have this.

The released game has the same issue as well, is there any way you could potentially fix this or any way manually we can fix it?

Some samples of meshes, in case if they'll be required to investigate the issue, explained above.

Anyone been able to find Sound files from the Destroy All Humans Remake?

The GOG demo seemed to just have the standard .OGG files in sound folders whereas the final build that just came out has UEXP or UASSET files. Unpacking these files with Unreal Package Extractor doesn't work.

I can confirm that in release version non of the static or skeletal meshes can be opened, all result in crash and closing of umodel viewer with error "RawArray item size mismatch; expected 8, serialized 12". Hopefully a fix can be created... Sad

Hi guys,

Please stop posting angry messages about "when you'll move your ass and finally support this game" in random places. This game is not "the game of the year" or "the best game ever", I really don't feel that I MUST interrupt my plans for UModel and do the support for it. It is not possible to support everything, there are games of much better quality which aren't openable with UModel, and most of people can live with it.

Most of my current plans are targeted to improve UModel usability for most (or even all) of already supported games. There are also plans for supporting 2 or 3 games - writing a special code for them, all were made by Microsoft, and these games' support was expected for a very long time.

My work is not sponsored at all, I'm doing my work on this tool in my spare time, sometimes cutting hours from my paid work to do something for UModel (especially over past 2 months). I can't work full time on this, if you have a family and you're responsible for family budget, you'll understand me.
