Can umodel export text from .u files?
« on: October 10, 2010, 01:36 »

When I use -list, I see a lot of items such as:

 143     C8C9       28 StrProperty LogMessage
 147     CA56       27 StrProperty S
 173     D362       27 NameProperty Value
 174     D389       27 StrProperty Value
1065    1B848     1DD1 TextBuffer ProcessedText

I'm wondering if this might be text in the .u files that I might be interested in reading.

Is this text, and can umodel extract it?

These objects are script parts. Use extract.exe to get it. Most interesting are TextBuffer files. Use
Code:
extract.exe -filter=textbuffer core.u

Another thread said I could find bioshock's weapon models in a file called shockgame.U

I'm kind of new to this stuff, how do I open a .U file to extract models and textures? If umodel supports this, I haven't been able to figure it out.

Edit: and for the record, I have managed to extract models and textures from blk files.

u files are packages - and can be opened like any other file.

blk files are like tfc - contains texture data only. Nothing else.

sorry, can you explain in more detail how I open a .u? I can't seem to figure out how to open it with umodel, and windows can't open it. Is there something specific I need to do?
